Four years after releasing his debut album La Verdadera Vuelta, the Puerto Rican rapper, singer and songwriter returns with his sophomore set titled LVV the Real Rondon.
Featuring 16 tracks, the album kicks off with “Un Barrio,” a mambo-infused trap song that tells the story of Darell’s upbringing. “From the hood, that’s where I’m from,” the lyrics go. Songs like “Bandolero,” “LVV En Su Piel” and “Llorando” bring to the forefront a Latin trap and hip-hop-heavy production.
In his Kiko El Crazy-assisted track “Dinero Facil,” Darell experiments with dembow melodies, and on “Billetes de 100” with Gerardo Ortiz, he doesn’t shy away from experimenting with artists of other genres.
LVV the Real Rondon includes collaborations with Miky Woodz, Pablo Chill-E, Juanka, Ñengo Flow, KEVVO, De La Ghetto and Young Hollywood.
Kevvo’s on his way to makin’ a bigger musical bang…
Interscope Records, in partnership with Una Vision Quintana, Inc., has signed the 22-year-old emerging Puerto Rican singer and rapper, whose full name is Kevin Manuel Rivera Allende, according to Billboard.
“Today, an artist’s unique and authentic identity is the ticket to becoming a staple in the culture,” Nir Seroussi, Interscope Records evp, said in a statement. “In that respect, Kevvo checks all of the boxes of a star-in-the-making. We’re very impressed with everything that he and Pepe Quintanahave accomplished in only one year, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be their partner for what’s to come.”
“Hooking up with Interscope is a dream come true,” adds Kevvo. “They completely understand and support our vision. They’ve also given me the freedom to do what I want, and I can’t wait for everybody to hear what we’ve got coming.”
Hailing from Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, Kevvo has been marking his territory in the Latin urban scene.
Most notably, Kevvo is known for his monster 2019 single “105F RMX,” in collaboration with Arcangel, Brytiago, ChenchoCorleone,Darell, Farruko, Myke Towersand Nengo Flow. In less than a year, the music video has racked up over 212 million views at the time of publishing.
Last year, Kevvo nabbed the award for top urbano Puerto Rico at Premios Tu Música Urbano.
Pepe Quintana, industry leader and CEO of Una Vision Quintana, signed Kevvo in 2019 and developed him under-the-radar. “Nir, Jorge [Fonseca, svp of A&R] and the Interscope team got it right away,” he said of the partnership with Interscope Records. “They recognized Kevvo’s talent, attitude, and energy and will be the perfect partner to elevate him to the next level. It’s exciting to kick off this alliance.”
In the middle of the coronavirus quarantine, Kevvo gained an entirely new following on social media with his nightly live party shows on Instagram dubbed “CuarentenaTV.” Kevvo prepares to bring new music and projects in 2020 under his new deal with Interscope Records.
