Superstar Puerto Rican rapper and singer Bad Bunny has made Grammy history. His latest album, "Un Verano Sin Ti," has earned two Grammy Award nominations, including a historic first in the album of the year category — the first Spanish-language album to ever receive such recognition.

His album is also up for a Grammy in the best música urbana album category, and “Moscow Mule,” the lead song of the hit album, is up for best pop solo performance.

The album is Bad Bunny’s sixth project in four years. "Un Verano Sin Ti" was released May 6.

Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, has won two Grammy awards and been nominated for six.

The nomination also makes him the first artist to be nominated for album of the year at both the Grammys and the Latin Grammys.

The 65th Grammy Awards will air on CBS and stream on Paramount+ from Los Angeles' Arena at 8 p.m. ET on Feb. 5.
