Here's Everything You Need to Know About Guaynaa

Keep an eye out on Puerto Rican singer Guaynaa. The former Billboard Latin Artist On the Rise has become one of this year’s chartbreakers, and now he's telling us everything we need to know.

Guaynaa, who grew up in Canóvanas, Puerto Rico, knew that his song “Rebota” was charting on Hot Latin Songs because his manager sent him a screenshot. “It’s a privilege to be in that chart,”  he tells Billboard, adding “I love to create music and I think I’ll be in the charts a couple more times.”

In the music video for his song "Buyaka," the artist reverses the role of always seeing women as sexual objects, instead recruiting men to be visualized in such a way. “I was thinking of what to do different on that song,” he adds.

As for which actor he'd love to see play him in a documentary or biopic? Leonardo DiCaprio. 

Guaynaa also reveals his favorite album, musical influences and more in the video above.
