Early Life:

Nicky Jam was born Nick Rivera Caminero on the 17th of May 1981 in Lawrence, Massachusetts. His father is from Puerto Rico and his mother is Dominican. When he was 10 years old his family moved to Puerto Rico. Coming from a poor household Nicky began working at a young age packing bags and groceries in a local supermarket in an attempt to provide for his family.

During his breaks, Nicky would rap at the entrance of the supermarket where he polished his skills. One day he caught the attention of a woman who worked for record labels, and she offered him a contract.

He quickly accepted and that was how he recorded his first album …Distinto a Los demás when he was only 11 years old. Despite the album not being successful, it let him gain experience and work with big names in the industry like DJ Chiclin and some others.

Early Career:

People think that Nicky Jam and Daddy Yankee are cousins, while in reality, they knew each other since their late childhood. They quickly became good friends and formed a duo called Los Cangris and in the late 90 and early 2000s created successful hits like En la Cama and Guayando. Together the duo found fame, Nicky who was still very young at the time didn’t know how to handle all the attention and pressure.

He got himself involved with drugs and were a few scandals. These situations worried Daddy Yankee who saw his friend slowly losing his way. Yankee tried to help Nicky with his efforts but they were misinterpreted and it only drove a bigger rift in the duo’s relationship which would eventually lead to the breakup of the band.

In November of 2004, Nicky Jam released his solo studio album “Vida escante” with songs like “Chambonea”, “Nos Fuimos”, and “Me Estoy Muriendo”. The album wasn’t successful as Nicky expected it to be.

This failure plus his breakup with Daddy Yankee would sink him into a deep depression. He turned to drugs and alcohol which caused the singer to gain a ton of weight. During this time the Puerto Rican police stopped him for driving a car that had been reported stolen and he spent a few days in jail.


The turning point of his career was when he was offered a job to perform a concert in Columbia, he took the gig and decided to start a new life in Medellin. Jam stopped drinking and started writing and recording new songs. He decided to work hard as necessary to become the best regular artist in the country.

In 2014 Jam dropped the hit songs Voy a Beber and Travesuras which went viral and led him to sign a deal with Sony U.S. Latin. His song Travesuras earned him so much fame as well as became Nicky’s first single to peak in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Latin Singles chart.

In the following year, Nicky Jam released another hit single El Perdón in a collaboration with a Spanish singer named Enrique Iglesias. The song’s popularity helped Jam to win his first Latin Grammy in the category of Best Urban Performance. The song became a sensation by peaking at #56 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as hitting the Hot Latin Singles chart.

He again came to the limelight after releasing his single Hasta el Amanecer in 2016 which has managed to accumulate more than 1.5 billion views on YouTube becoming his first music video to reach over a billion views. In addition, the single won the 2017 Billboard Music Award in the category of Top Latin Song as well as the Urban Song of the Year and earned the 29th Lo Nuestro Awards nomination for Single of the Year.

Jam’s fourth studio album Fénix was released on January 20, 2017, and debuted at the top of the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart. It also received several nominations including the 18th Annual Latin Grammy Awards for the Latin Grammy Award for Album of the Year and more.
