El Mayor is one of those many boys who have come out of populous sectors and have made their way in urban music.
In April 2017, the editors of Listín Diario learned in depth about the life of the young man who left the Las Cañitas neighborhood (Santo Domingo Norte) and became one of the first Dominican exponents of urban music to achieve success.
At that time, he lived in a luxurious mansion with his wife and their little daughter. The Mayor told his story since his mother, Josefa Reyes, went to live on the island of Aruba and had to leave him, in the care of his grandmother Leopoldina de los Santos, his aunt Eugenia Brito and his uncle Sención de los Santos, who was a real father to him, since he did not know his biological father.
“I was the only child in the house. We all had to work to be able to eat at home. Life in the neighborhoods is very difficult and sometimes young people do not find a way to go out ”, the reggaeton singer explained on that occasion.
As a teenager, he was a fan of Daddy Yankee and Tego Calderón. One day he dared to experiment how his voice was heard in a microphone and approached the young Ismael Miranda, known in his neighborhood as “El Cable”, and who had an improvised recording studio in his house. . He arrived at the dembow “Los Gucci” and his story changed forever.
The Mayor has been a promoter of dembow. Among his contributions to the genre, he recently began to look for new horizons in dembow, adding instruments like the tambora, with new musical nuances, where the mix of house and dembow stands out.
In this new experiment, he has recorded a song with bachatero Elvis Martínez, under the Sony Entertainment label, which will be released this Friday the 14th on all digital platforms.
