Latin trap is also known as trap Latino, and we all know Bad Bunny is the king of this genre. He is in the top 3 most streamed artists on Spotify and is currently on the Hottest World Tour. But, there are many significant music names on the Latin trap music scene, who may not be that popular, but are still important for the style.
When we talk about Bad Bunny, there is no need to explain a lot. People love his songs, and his latest album received a huge audience acceptance. We are sure there are some Bad Bunny tickets 2022 left, so you need to hurry if you want to attend some of his upcoming live concerts.
If you love him, you love the whole Latin trap music scene, and here are the artists who make the biggest noise there:
1. J Balvin
J Balvin is from Colombia, and his favorite genre is reggaeton. Also, he embraces the Latin trap by collaborating with many stars, including Ozuna, Bad Bunny, Anitta, and Daddy Yankee.
Even though he was born in Medellin and moved to the United States later, he is one of the worldwide recognized music artists, winning six Latin Grammys and eleven Billboard Latin awards. He also received four Grammy nominations and was named the best Contemporary Latin Songwriter at BMI Latin Awards.
Most of the time, he sings in Spanish, even when he collaborates with Beyonce, Major Lazer, Dua Lipa, or The Black Eyed Peas.
2. Myke Towers
You will recognize Myke by the song “Estamos Arriba,” which he recorded together with Bad Bunny. Later he launched a new collaboration with Becky G, named “Dollar.”
Also, Myke Towers has many successful collaborations with Anitta, Cardi B, Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, Luis Fonsi, Karol G, and many others.
3. Lenny Tavarez
He is best known as a part of the duo Dyland & Lenny. Also, he is a successful producer, singer, and songwriter coming from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Duki, the rapper, comes from Argentina, but he is widely recognized in Latin America and worldwide. He also collaborated with Bad Bunny for the single “Hablamos Manana.”
Just like every other rap star, he tried so hard to be loud and seen, but as he grew older, he became more mature. So now, his songs are more straightforward, and Duki experiments with dance and punk. We must say these genres work pretty nicely with the Latin trap.
Ozuna is another successful Puerto Rican and Dominican music artist. He combines Latin trap, reggaeton, reggae, moombahton, and bachata. During his career, he had significant collaborations with Daddy Yankee, Anuel AA, DJ Snake, Cardi B, Selena Gomez, Farruko, and Arcangel.

She was in a relationship with the Latin trap star Anuel AA, but they eventually broke up in 2021, two years after their engagement.
7. Becky G
Many people think Becky G and Karol G are sisters or somehow related, but the truth is they are just scene colleagues. Becky G, whose real name is Rebecca Marie Gomez, was born in California.
