Nicky Jam is an American urban music singer and songwriter from Massachusetts of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent. Jam came up in Boston and delivered his first album at the early age of 12. Gaining popularity with the co-sign of his Dandy Yankee collab, Nicky has since bounced back from experiencing a life of drugs and jail time. Jam took some time for a ‘Close Conversation’ with Nick Cannon to discuss transitioning to an international Spanish artist, his relationship with Will Smith that led to his role in the newest Bad Boys entry, the moment he met Denzel Washington and had a complete super fan run-in, and Nicky also shares the role Instagram and digital streaming services have built his career.
He made a big debut in the middle of the 1990s decade, where he made a name for himself within the mixtape circuit and then when he met another reggaetonero by the name of Daddy Yankee, in which they formed the iconic duo “Los Cangris”, and then becoming a soloist again.
Nicky Jam has achieved great popularity throughout the years with songs like “Voy a Beber”, “X” with J Balvin and “Te Robare” with Ozuna.
