MOSCOW, 10 Nov. Rapper Bad Bunny (Benito Antonio Martínez Ocpsio) has been named Top Artist of the Year at the 4th annual Apple Music Awards. This was reported on the company's website.
In May, the artist released his sixth album Un Verano Sin Ti, which became the leader in streaming on the platform. It was also recognized as the most popular Latin American release of all time.
"When I started, I didn't have a big fan base. I am grateful for all that I have achieved and for all that I have experienced. The popularity of Latin American music has skyrocketed. I would never take all the credit for myself and say, “It's because of me.” No, each of us did it,” the artist commented on his victory.
Last year the winner of the award was The Weeknd. The musician's album After Hours broke the record for the number of downloads on Apple Music.
Tailor Swift's new album Midnights has been named the best-selling album of 2022 by the media. In addition, listeners purchased almost 500,000 Midnights vinyl records in a special edition.
