The evidence thus far supports the Argentine newcomer's statement. He's placed three songs on the Billboard Global 200 charts this year: the trap-heavy “Además de Mi” with Rusherking, Khea, Duki, Maria Becerra, and LIT Killah; the catchy reggaetón jam “No Me Conocen” with Rei, Duki, and Bandido; and the LIT Killah-assisted R&B fusion cut “Entre Nosotros.”
“These songs were a big leap for my career, and gave me that boost,” he notes.
However, the 20-year-old rapper and singer-songwriter says the first song that made him viral in his native Argentina was his debut single “Andamo en la Cima,” which he released at the age of 15. “At that time, around 2016, there wasn’t a strong local scene in my country," he explains. "So, I released this trap song and it had great feedback."
In September, Tiago inked a worldwide publishing agreement with Sony Music Publishing U.S. Latin. He’s collaborated with many of his colleagues and compatriots, such as Emilia Mernes and Maria Becerra. And, just this week, he made his acting debut in the film Cato, directed by Peta Rivero y Hornos.
“To give thanks has been the best advice I’ve received,” he says. “When I started doing that every day before going to bed, good things began to happen in my life in general. Without having anything or having everything, you always have to be grateful. That’s key.”
