When he had a career as a singer, he recorded with one of the pioneers in the genre, Polaco del Duet Lito y Polaco, the song “Reggaeton pal’ mundo”. Today, his talent as a composer and producer has attracted the attention of renowned artists such as Daddy Yankee, CNCO and Becky G, for the latter he composed the song “Sola”, which has 300 million in “Streaming”, with T.Y.S. and which is produced by A.C.

“Right now, I’m trying to bring Dominican urban music to places where it has not arrived, I think we’re doing OK, we’ve evolved musically but we still lack organization, unity, and we have to learn that the music business is not only parties and to be able to arrive to where have arrived urban from other countries, we must work hard and be united”, explained Cromo X.
