Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, has released countless hits over the years. 

His work as a musician has made him a household name all over the world. 

The 29-year-old says it is not by chance that he became a musician. 

From a young age, he has always dreamt about having a career in music. 

Speaking to Interview Magazine, the singer said: “I actually dreamed so much about having this career."

He says this goes as far as his school years, revealing that he started recording his own music even during that time. 

“I’d come home from school and go straight to the computer, making beats and learning to record my own music," he said. 

He added that music was the only career he felt he was meant to do. 

"I’d sometimes say, ‘Damn, if this isn’t meant to be, I don’t know what I’ll do because I don’t have another dream.'”

With the entertainment industry being so competitive and not always secure, the Grammy Award-winning artist says he had to go to college to try and secure his future. 

“I wasn’t going to go be lazy thinking that I’d get everything I wanted, so I went to college,” the songwriter said. “I had my job [bagging groceries at Econo] to at least pay for gas.”

Apart from music, Bad Bunny says he also loves cooking. 

“I saw cooking as something creative because sure, there are recipes, but there’s also the opportunity to craft your own dishes, to create your own flavor,” he said.
