Reggeton artist Will Kano launches his single ‘Dejame Entrar’ on June 21st through Continental Records. The album will be found on iTunes and Google Play. The single part of the full-length LP ‘Tú tranquilo que ya llegamos,’ set to release later this year.
Will was discovered while on a trip to Los Angeles by manager Ivan Leon, who introduced the young artist to record label executives who signed him on a three-album deal. The album signing represents Will’s foray as a solo artist, having previously worked with bands such as the Fialo group.
When asked about the process of creating his first single, Will had to say, “It has been a long process! It’s full of positive experiences and personal growth. When you play for someone else, you try to fit into their sound. When it’s solo work, you get to decide who you should like. It’s different, switching gears for others and keeping a cohesive sound on your own work. I began recording to find the sound that felt right for me. Now that I’ve honed in on ‘my sound’, I can say without a shadow of a doubt, that I am proud of my work!”
