Experience Latin music star Lunay’s musical journey
In a new mini-documentary, Lunay talks about his love for his hometown, the importance of representation, and turning his dream into a reality.

Lunay, also known as “El Niño,” made music with icons Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny, saw the video to his “La Cama (Remix)” get over 120 million views since its release last year, and has over 4.8 million subscribers on his Official Artist Channel.

In a new mini-documentary, the artist and YouTube Music are giving his fans a glimpse into the Puerto Rican star's musical journey. The recent Artist on the Rise discusses his love for his hometown, the importance of representation, and turning his dream into a reality in the short film, which is available to watch now on his Official YouTube Channel.

The video follows Lunay in his childhood neighborhood of Corozal, Puerto Rico, where he shares that his passion for music comes from his parents. Expressing how the love and faith of his family helped push him ahead, the rising artist reflects on his desire to create music that represents his community. From meeting reggaeton icon Daddy Yankee at a young age to eventually collaborating on a hit single, Lunay’s career comes full circle as he talks about the importance of seizing every opportunity and constantly learning.

Something I never forget is that my dad taught me to bring passion to whatever you do. I go find my muse while I ride and enjoy myself.”

“Something I never forget is that my dad taught me to bring passion to whatever you do. I go find my muse while I ride and enjoy myself,” Lunay says in the short film while comparing his love of bikes to music. “In the studio, it’s the same process. It’s like freestyle, and also in music we call it freestyle. It’s doing what you want and whatever you feel.”

In October, Lunay sat down for a full Q&A with YouTube Music to discuss his inspirations, how it feels to be an Artist on the Rise, and more. You can read the full Q&A here.
