Latin pop singer and songwriter Sebastián Yatra moved from his native Colombia to the U.S. at the age of five.
Growing up in Miami, Yatra learned to play guitar and piano and became as a singer in his teenage years. He first found success as a 19-year-old when his 2013 single, "El Psicólogo," became a hit in Colombia and around Latin America. His warm blend of romantic pop balladry, Latin, and reggaeton won him a widespread following over the next few years, with subsequent singles like "Para Olvidar," "No Me Llames," and "Como Mirarte" also faring well commercially. It was 2016's massive reggaeton and EDM hit "Traicionera" that truly cemented Yatra's popularity in the Latin American market, and he followed up that same year with his first mixtape, The Mixtape Jukebox, Vol. 1. 2017 saw the release of his debut EP, Extended Play Yatra, which included his hit "Traicionera." ~ Timothy Monger
