The world-dominating Latin artist triumphs once again.
Industry body IFPI has shared statistics that confirm Latin artist Bad Bunny as the man behind 2022’s most successful album. On Friday February 24, they announced that Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti was the year’s most successful album globally, awarding the artist with their Global Album Award. IFPI says that its Global Albums Chart takes into account all consumption formats, spanning physical sales, digital downloads, and streaming platforms across a calendar year.
Last year, Bad Bunny was named Apple Music’s ‘Artist of the Year’, in recognition of his “artistic excellence and influence on global culture in 2022”. The streaming service also stated that Un Verano Sin Ti was the platform’s most streamed album of 2022, and the most successful Latin album in musical history. Apple Music also reported that Bad Bunny was the biggest Latin artist of all time, as measured by worldwide streams. In a video recorded at the time, Bad Bunny commented: ” “I’m grateful for everything I’ve accomplished and everything I’ve experienced. The Latin music movement has grown so much. I would never take full credit or say, ‘It’s because of me.’ No, it’s every one of us. A whole generation. Our energy and presence is always felt.”
