In his new music video "El ganador," Nicky Jam chronicles his rise to stardom after a troubled past, including time in jail and substance abuse. 

"It was a Nicky Jam that didn't respect life -- there was a point in my life when I thought I wasn't going anywhere," the singer/songwriter narrates. "Now I have sold out concerts and I'm acting next to Vin Diesel," he raps, with the action star by his side. 

"El ganador" is the second single from Jam's new album Fenix, which dropped on Jan. 20 -- the same day he made his debut as actor on the big screen with Vin Diesel on xXx: Return of Xander Cage
