Nicky Jam’s most recent single "X," features J Balvin which later features Maluma and Ozuna in a remix. He continued to release stand-alone tracks through the year of 2018, including "Satisfaccion" with Bad Bunny and Arcangel, "Good Vibes" with Fuego, and "Jaleo" with Steve Aoki.
In 2016, Nicky Jam’s single "Hasta el Amanecer," played in U.S. radio stations, which contained the singer's trademark catchy, romantic, melodic hooks. The music video has been viewed over a billion times. His album, Fénix, was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2017.
Born Nick Rivera Caminero on March 17, 1981 in Boston, Massachusetts, Jam moved with his family to Barrio Obrero, Puerto Rico at age ten. His father is Puerto Rican and his mother is Dominican. Like many of his generation, Jam initially got into the reggaeton scene during the '90s and made a name for himself on the mixtape circuit.
In 2005, Nicky Jam broke through to a mainstream audience with his album Vida Escante, which was re-released with bonus material. His follow-up album, The Black Carpet album in 2007, showed similar popularity that spawned his biggest hit to date, "Gas Pela," featuring RKM.
Despite Jam's success, he felt he could do more, and decided to move to Colombia in 2010. It proved to be just the career rejuvenation he needed, resulting in a parade of underground hits including "Tu Primera Vez," "Curiosidad," and "Voy a Beber."
Featuring appearances by Sean Paul, J Balvin, Wisin, Daddy Yankee, Arcangel, Enrique Iglesias, and more, the multi-platinum album Fénix in 2017 hit the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 and topped the Latin Albums chart, which marked Nicky Jam's first appearance on the chart.
