Lunay (aka Jefnier Osorio) is a Puerto Rican rapper and Latin trap singer whose charting collaborations with artists such as Daddy Yankee, Anuel AA and Bad Bunny, resulted in him scoring his own recording contract. His singles "A Solas," its remix "Llegale," and "Soltera" have registered on streaming charts across the U.S. and Caribbean, while his videos have garnered close to a billion views.
Born in Puerto Rico in 2000, Lunay was far more interested in soccer than music as a young teen, but he caught the bug at 15. A year later, he was creating freestyle raps and uploading them to his Facebook and SoundCloud pages. Several of his audio clips went viral and caught the attention of producers Chris Jeday and Gaby Music, who signed him to a production deal.
By the spring of 2019, he was all over the charts. "A Solas" and its remix were nominated for National Song of the Year and Remix of the Year at the first edition of the Latin Urban Music Awards, in Puerto Rico. His follow-up, "Soltera," landed at number 73 on the Hot 100, while its remix hit 28 on the Emerging Artists chart. He performed at the 2019 Premios Juventud awards, winning one for Best New Artist. In late October, just 14 months into his career, he issued his debut LP, Epico. Lunay enlisted a slew of guests for various tracks including "Mi Favorita" with Wisin y Yandel, "La Cama" with Myke Towers, Aventura" with Anuel AA and Ozuna, and the "Soltera" remix featuring Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi
