Mexican singer-songwriter Ramón Vega has signed an exclusive recording contract with Sony Music Latin, Billboard can confirm.

The up-and-coming 14-year-old artist from Sonora, Mexico plays guitar and accordion, and stands out for his fusion of regional Mexican, hip-hop, R&B and Latin urban. Vega -- who is set to release his first single later this year -- follows in the footsteps of his late uncle corrido singer Sergio "El Shaka" Vega and older brother Cornelio Vega.

About the signing, Vega said, "I want to create a sound that hasn’t been done before. My music encompasses R&B, trap, reggaetón and reggae. But it also has the stamp of Sonora, and we incorporate our instruments like the accordion and bajo sexto into other genres."

"Ramon Vega has the same attitude, style and vision of this new generation of Latin music that is looking to incorporate their own identity with traditional sounds that stick to their roots and globalize them in ways that have no limits," said Alex Gallardo, president of Sony Music Latin.

He continued, "his energy and talent represent the potential of these emerging artists, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Sony Music family."
