Fito Blanko

Born in Panama and raised in Canada, urban/dance artist Blanko has navigated mainstream and Latin, collaborating with Drake, Beenie Man and, most recently, Elvis Crespo, who features him on the single "Pegaito Suavecito." Signed to Pitbull's Mr. 305 label, Blanko will continue as a featured artist to generate more buzz before a full-length album. "He's the one we're testing that whole bilingual theory with," label head Robert Hernandez says.
