With Latin Grammy week in full swing, let’s talk about El Fantasma. The Regional Mexican singer is part of the new wave of “Mexillennials” taking over the genre.
With a career that spans less than five years, his romantic songs and gritty narcocorridos have nabbed him and his band, Equipo Armado, their first-ever Latin Grammy nomination for best banda album with their album En El Camino.
On the celebration streak, his single “Dolor y Amor” entered the Latin Regional Airplay chart, ascending 14-10 on the Nov. 17-dated chart. This is the artist’s fifth top 10 on the Latin Regional Airplay chart.
