“F.L.Y.” is easily De La Ghetto’s biggest collaboration to date, teaming him with one of hip-hop’s leading stars. Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut album, powered by the smash hit single “Trap Queen,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart upon its release in 2015.

De La Ghetto’s long-awaited soon to be released new album, Mi Movimiento, features collaborations with fellow Latin urban superstars J Balvin, Maluma and Wisin.  He has also collaborated previously with Latin icons Daddy Yankee, Nicky Jam, J Balvin, WisinYandel and other big-name artists.

De La Ghetto is set to perform at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards in Las Vegas on April 26th, alongside Sofia Reyes on her track “1,2,3.” The hit single “1,2,3” alongside Sofia Reyes and Jason Derulo released in February, entered the Viral 50 Chart in more than 50 countries and became an explosive single in the first 5 days.

Born in New York City and raised in Puerto Rico with Dominican Ancestry, De La Ghetto is the most versatile artist on the urban scene today. Influenced by Latin and American hip-hop, rap, R&B, and funk, he possesses a remarkable ability to shift with ease between crafting rhymes and creating hip-hop jams in English and Spanish. He’s also pioneered new styles of Reggaeton in its various forms and Trap (a growing musical style of South Atlanta.)

De La Ghetto has garnered a devout following among Latin and English speakers thanks to sold-out tours throughout the United States and Latin America – including a packed house at the legendary Coliseo de Puerto Rico arena – and show-stopping performances at major radio festivals like Calibash in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Mega Mezcla in New York City, and Miami Bash.

De La Ghetto’s status as a premier hitmaker and hip-hop luminary is undeniable.
