Anuel AA first started making rap recordings at the tender age of 14 and posting them on the internet by the time he turned eighteen.

Soon there were literally millions of people streaming his music, and the rap star Rick Ross took notice. He pretty quickly scooped Anuel AA up and got him signed to Maybach Music Group’s Latin music division. By 2016, Anuel AA’s first mixtape was out and getting a great response.

Despite this early success which helped Anuel AA net worth grow very swiftly, Anuel AA’s life seemed to be put on hold in April of that year, when he was arrested due to illegally possessing guns. Anuel AA was soon sentenced to remain in prison for thirty months as punishment for these crimes.

Anuel AA, however, didn’t let this rather extreme setback deter him. While in prison, he continued to focus on his music and, extremely impressively, managed not only to write his first album but even to record it while behind bars by singing his vocals into the phone, with his manager recording the calls.

The album, entitled Real Hasta la Muerte, actually came out the very day that Anuel AA got out of prison in 2018. Billboard raved that “Anne remained behind bars, while outside, his music flourished.” Rolling Stone said that he had “impressive pop instincts” and named it one of the Best Latin Albums of the year.

Anuel AA’s debut album reached the forty-second spot on Billboard 200 and hit the first spot on the Top Latin Albums in the United States chart. The song “Bebe” also got him a Hot 100 song. And that was just the beginning.

Anuel AA net worth and his profile continued to grow in the following 6 months, thanks to him collaborating on a whopping 11 singles that all charted on Hot Latin Songs in Billboard Magazine.

These tracks included “Ella Quiere Beber” with Romeo Santos, “Familia” with Bantu and Nicki Minaj (and featured in the animated film hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), and “Secreto” with Karol G, with whom he was also in a secret romantic relationship at the time.

This song hit the sixty-eighth spot on Billboard Magazine Hot 100, and fifth place on Hot Latin Songs in the United States and had fans comparing them to Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez, as we as Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

In mid-2019, Anuel AA joined forces with, Ozuna, Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, and again Karol G on a song called “China”. The song used samples from the classic Shaggy song, “It Wasn’t Me”, which was released in 2000 and was amongst Anuel AA’s favorite songs. This would become a running theme for him.

Speaking about “It Wasn’t Me” to XXL Magazine, he fondly remembered, “when I used to go with the big boys in my hood to the club, they put that song on and everybody used to go crazy”. Anuel AA’s “China” hit the second spot on Hot Latin Songs, as well as first place on Latin Streaming Songs and Latin Digital Songs.

Furthermore, Rolling Stone placed “China”’s music video on their 10 Best Latin Music Videos of July list. Clearly, Anuel AA net worth was continuing to rise and rise at this point.

Next, he showed upon on a Nicky Jam song, “Whine Up”, off the album Íntimo, and then joined forces with the legendary Shakira for “Me Gusta”, which sampled Inner Circle’s “Sweat (A La La La La Long)”. Then Bad Bunny had him rap on their single “Esta Cabron Ser Yo” from their new album YHLQMDLG.

He also released his own new single around this time. Anuel AA’s song “3 De Abril” was named for the arrest day that set off Anuel AA’s prison time and focuses on the dark times he had both before and during his sentence. Rolling Stone raved that the song was a “sobering commemoration” of that time for him.

This was followed by Anuel AA’s “Follow”, another Karol G duet, which they recorded during COVID 19 lockdown, much like he’d recorded his first album while locked up in prison.

That same year, 2020, Anuel AA dropped Emmanuel, his second album, named eponymously for his real name. He explained that he called it that because “it’s my name and it means God with us. I wanted the album to have that good vibe. It’s my life, made into music.”

Emmanuel is a massive double album featuring twenty-two songs, including appearances by, again, Karol G, Farruko, Ñengo Flow, Lil Wayne, Yandel, Tego Calderon, Enrique Iglesias, Bad Bunny, and Travis Barker.

Anuel AA net worth was on full display when he launched this album with the launch of 3 yachts off Miami, Florida’s coast, each one named Emmanuel. His explanation for this was “Everybody does their release party in a club. And with coronavirus? I wouldn’t go to the club right now!”

The album got fantastic reviews. Rolling Stone gushed over it, saying it was “a sonic feast…every bit as show-stopping, however indulgent, as his fleet of party boats…Even in the most crowded of featured tracks, Anuel’s hardy baritone cuts right through, leaving in his wake the smallest glint of pop sparkle.”

Meanwhile, Billboard called it “a versatile album that has fresh music for the clubs, the street life, and even sentimental bops.”

Despite the success of the album, Anuel AA’s next surprise move was to announce his retirement. He released what he said was a final song for him called “Me Contagie 2” which was about the depression he’s suffered due to fame.

His young son apparently wanted to spend more time with him and felt he was too often away on music business, and so in response, Anuel AA said he would retire, and because of Anuel AA net worth, he was able to consider that.

This might have just been a strange hiccup, however, because he and Ozuna dropped a joint album together in January 2021 after that announcement. It was called Los Dioses. Not long after that twelve-song album, yet another album was announced.

That one, however, ended up being delayed, and instead, Anuel AA made an appearance on Pop Smoke’s second posthumous album, Faith. Later that year, he then put out another two singles, “Los De Sizemore” and “23 Preguntas”. Anuel AA net worth grew more.

Around that time, he officially announced his next album would be coming out and it would be called Las Leyendas Nunca Mueren. By the end of the year, that album was out, dropping on his twenty-ninth birthday. Its sixteen songs included “Dictadura”, “Leyenda”, and “Subelo”.

XXL Magazine has called Anuel AA “one of the founding fathers of Latin trap music”, which certainly goes to show how incredibly highly regarded he is in the music industry. Anuel AA is particularly praised for his ability to use his vocal beatboxing skills to simulate the sound of a firing gun.

Given Anuel AA is often extremely graphic and dark in his songs, they are rarely found suitable for airplay on the radio, often being filled with frank discussions of crime, sex, and gang life. This is why streaming has been crucial to his ability to become a celebrity. In an earlier landscape, he couldn’t have flourished.

Anuel AA is famous for his signature use of the word “bebecita” in his songs, which translates to “baby girl”, to the point that his entire genre of reggaeton has become known for the use of this word.

Anuel AA Controversies

Anuel AA’s career has been plagued with controversies. He put out a diss track in 2018 that caused a huge stir. It was put out against the rap artist Cosculluela and he named it “Intocable”. Not only was it heavily full of crude words but it included statements that were both homophobic as well as phobic of people with AIDS.

One of “Intocable”’s most offensive moments is when he calls model La Taina a “pig” due to having HIV. This caused a huge outcry among the public, which led to an upcoming concert for Anuel AA being canceled. The PR nightmare that ensued led to Anuel AA having to apologize publicly.

“It is the worst mistake of my career,” he said. “I do not need this and I apologize to all the people I offended. To homosexuals, to people with AIDS, to La Taina, and to those who lost everything after Hurricane Maria…My fans deserve me to be a better person, and I apologize to everyone in Puerto Rico.”

His next big controversy happened in April 2019 when he got into a pitched argument with the prominent Reggaeton singer Ivy Queen that she was no longer the “queen” of the genre as her last hit song was nearly a decade before.

Again, many people found this behavior disrespectful and dismissive of a legend in her field.
