After announcing his affiliation with Magnus Media, the Philadelphia-native singer/songwriter Luis Figueroa has joined Sony Music Latin, Billboard has learned.
“Luis has diligently developed every facet of his career including singing, songwriting, producing, acting, live performance and promotion,” says Alex Gallardo, President of Sony Music US Latin. “We are very pleased to join him in this next major step of his development.”
Figueroa graduated from Berklee College of Music, was Romeo Santos’ backing and featured vocalist during the last two international tours and, in 2017, performed at Billboard Latin Music Awards.
“I feel honored to sign with Sony because my favorite artists growing up, like Marc Anthony and Romeo Santos, are here,” adds Figueroa.
Also, in the past year, Figueroa has been working as a songwriter in songs like “Por Perro” with Sebastián Yatra and Lary Over, and “Telepatía” with the Norwegian EDM star Matoma. Plus, he appears as a featured artist on Yashua’s “Pa Las Babies” which was co-written by Cris Chill.
“I am ready to have a record out, and ready to have an album out,” concludes Figueroa, who will release his debut single “La Especialista” on October 4.
