Nick Rivera Caminero (born March 17, 1981), known professionally as Nicky Jam, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and actor. He is best known for hits such as “X”, “Travesuras”, “En la Cama”, “Te Busco”, “El Perdón”, “Hasta el Amanecer”, and “El Amante”; the latter three are from his 2017 album Fénix. He has frequently collaborated with other Latin artists such as Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, Ozuna, and Anuel AA. While his early music exemplified traditional fast-paced reggaeton, his newer compositions place more emphasis on sung vocals and romantic lyrics. His success was furthered by the 2015 single “El Perdón” and his 2017 album Fénix. He released the album Íntimo in 2019, which was a critical and commercial success. Nicky Jam has also acted in the films XXX: Return of Xander Cage (2017) and Bad Boys for Life (2020), and starred in and executive produced the Netflix biographical series Nicky Jam: El Ganador (2018).

4. The Black Carpet (2007)
“It’s been so long since there was an album that every song is worth listening to. Even though it’s a bit softer than his usual stuff, Nicky still stays true to his character. I’m obsessed with this album and it’s all I’ve been listening to since I got it”
3. Salón de la fama (2003)
“Pioneer of reggaetón. He along with DY, Lito y Polaco, Don Omar, Tego, Jenay, Wisin y Yandel, Zion y Lennox and Plan B revolutionized the style we have today. The difference being, Nicky Jam stayed true to the routes of the island and never tried to adjust to what Americans would buy in the store. “
2. Intimo (2019)
“In this album not only do you get to listen to one specific style but you get to listen to multiple rhythms and makes you feel amazing.”
1. Fénix (2017)
“Nicky Jam is awesome. His collaborations in Spanish and English are wonderful. Love to include them in my workouts because they are so energizing. Fenix is a gem.”
