Reykon Releases New Track “El Chisme” Inspired by His Own Personal Life

Reykon is fueling his latest track with a little chisme

The 29-year-old Colombian reggaetonero hit the studio to record “El chisme,” a song inspired by the latest rumor going around about his personal life.


There aren’t any specific details about what that rumor is, in his track.

But Reykon sings, “Girl, they told you an incredible rumor, and you believed them/ Of course you believed them/ But stuff from the past has left scars/ I have to leave now, even though I don’t want to.”

A few days ago, Reykon took to social media to address the issue and send a message to the person who started the rumor.

“I feel outraged right now because of a rumor they are spreading. People can be so harmful and they don’t realize how much harm they can do with these words and comments. Yes, we decided to be public figures and people will be talking about us, but I don’t understand why they treat us like if we weren’t human beings. You can ruin our lives too. To that person who is coming up with these rumors about me, you know who you are, get a life and find something else to do.”

Reykon Signs Major Recording Deal with Warner Music Latina

Reykon will soon be taking the world by storm…

The 28-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer, one of his country’s rising urban music talents, has signed a major label deal with Warner Music Latina, according to Billboard.


Reykon, whose real name is Andres Felipe Robledo, will release two singles, as he looks toward an album release later this year.

The first track, titled “Imaginandote,” is slated to hit radio this month. It features Reykon’s pal Daddy Yankee, whom he recorded with in 2007. Reykon has also previously recorded with the likes of Yandel, Farruko and J Balvin.

Reykon, whose career to this point has been indie, has yet to score a major U.S. radio hit; his only charting single was last year’s “Secretos,” which reached No. 8 on Billboard’s Latin Rhythm Airplay chart.

But he’s had major hits in Colombia and has huge social traction, with 5.5 million likes on Facebook, 1.1 million Twitter followers and 589,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel.

The official video for “Secretos” has notched 37 million views.

Despite being vocally different, like Balvin, Reykon’s reggaetón is more romantic-minded and highly melodic.

“For me, good music, a good attitude, strong character and excellent team work are the keys to success,” he said in a statement. “Only then can you achieve great things. This union with Warner Music Latina was the step that my career needed.”

Reykon is managed by Edgar Andino, who formerly handled Wisin & Yandel.
