Branded a “force” by Complex, Amir Obé grew up the so of a father with a PhD in education and a pianist mother. Amir was ready to give up music four years ago when he decided to pour his heart into one final mix tape project: Detrooklyn, named in honor of the two cities that raised him. was the critically acclaimed result.

Amir’s two subsequent indie mixtapes, Happening in the Grey Area (2015) and Won’t Find Love in the Hills (2016), sent a tremor through the music industry, as XXL commended his commitment to “substance over selling out,” and Fader praised his music as “dreamy, sad and sensuous.” Def Jam reacted swiftly, and Amir’s signing was announced in December 2016. “To continue to a legacy and brand that has created history with some of my favorite artists is a blessing,” he told Billboard“Def Jam prides itself on authenticity and I couldn’t have found a better home.”

His debut EP, None Of The Clocks Work (March 2017), including “Wish You Well” was sonically rich, awash with dark synths and thunderous drums, brimming with vulnerability and emotional sincerity. Amir’s 6-city U.S. tour in August made stops, in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago. The tandem releases in late-2018 of Can’t Be A__ Here: Chapter 1, Can’t Be A__ Here: Chapter 2 (with “Bloodshot,” and the widely praised 8-minute “Romeo & Juliet” short film), and Can’t Be A__ Here: Chapter 3, have affirmed Amir’s relationship with a devoted legion of fans who’ve felt disconnected from the constant braggadocio and emotional void in mainstream urban music. In being himself, flaws and all, he’s actually given those fans the confidence to do the same.

Anuel AA

Since the release of the album “Real to death”, the pioneer of Trap Latino, Anuel AA, has not stopped receiving good news and a wonderful response from his fans, who have downloaded the songs from the album in a massive way, making him creditor of different recognitions just two months after its premiere.

Since its controversial launch and without having made a promotion to date, “Real to death” is already a Platinum record in the United States, and also holds the coveted certification of the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). Taking into account that there are more strict requirements and it is more difficult to certify an album than a single, this has been a great achievement to be the first musical production of this exponent of the urban genre. Not just an achievement for him, but for the urban genre in general, since Anuel AA is the only Latin solo artist to obtain a Platinum Record for an album released this year.

“When we thought about making the record, we never imagined that all these blessings would come, especially being an independent label, which shows me that I must always be faithful to my genre and to the fans who have supported me from the beginning,” said Anuel AA.

On the other hand, some of the songs on the album, “Real hasta la muerte”, have received their own recognitions individually. The song “Yeezy”, a duet with the Puerto Rican Ñengo Flow, became a Gold Record, as well as “Na Nuevo”, for its large number of downloads on digital platforms.

For its part, the theme “Brindemos” along with his great friend and fellow genre, Ozuna, reached the rating of Double Platinum, while the themes “Want to drink” and “Hypocrite”, which performed a duet with Zion, reached both Platinum Disc certification.
