Bizarrap was chosen as one of the ten leaders of the next generation, according to Time magazine
Just days away from consecrating three unforgettable nights for Argentine music at the Palermo Hippodromethe producer bizarre He once again demonstrated why he is the highest reference on the Argentine music scene, upon receiving the award after having entered the billion clubwhich is awarded to those songs that exceed one billion reproductions.
It is that since it saw the light, the Bizarrap Music Session #52 with Quevedo it became a complete success. In just a matter of days, the producer exceeded 10,000,000 views on digital platforms and reached 5th place in the world TOP of Spotify. Now, nine months after its release, the song broke another record and made the artist the first Argentine to exceed one billion reproductions in that network.
The next closest session to breaking this record is Shakira, which is in second place with 563,990,570 views on Spotify. In its presentation in Buenos Aires, it was no coincidence that this theme preceded Quevedo’s, since both songs represent world hits that broke all kinds of global records and that continue to be the most listened to.
In the midst of this panorama, the prestigious time magazine chose him as one of the ten leaders of the next generation. “His meteoric but unconventional rise signals a change in the industrywhich shows that newcomers do not have to follow a certain path to find their audience”, explained the journalist Moises Mendez II when explaining how the Argentine managed to be part of that count.
“Their numbers are impressive: 7.2 billion views on YouTube, 41.8 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Several of his videos and songs have hundreds of millions of views and views. And Bizarrap, whose real name is Gonzalo Julián Conde, has done it all without releasing a record”, continued Mendez II, giving an account of the relevance of the artist born in Ramos Mejía.
In addition, in the same publication a report is presented to the producer, where he stated: “What matters most to me is that the music I make is known about mealthough obviously there are people who are interested in me giving interviews, that’s why sometimes yes, but what I like the most is that the music speaks ”, he justified the lack of reports on him.
As detailed in the post: “On his channel, the 24-year-old producer and his guests shoot a simple music video for a co-composed original song, often featuring his trademark electropop flare. They have gone viral not only for their beats, such as the EDM-infused rap banger with Puerto Rican rapper Villano Antillano, but also for their content: their collaboration with Residente led to a short-lived feud between the Puerto Rican rapper and J Balvin. .
However, he does spare a moment to talk about one of the high points of his career so far: “Her January song with Shakira, in which she addressed cheating rumors about her husband (for Gerard Piqué) for the first time, it exploded in popularity and broke several Guinness World Records. Suddenly, it had become much more difficult for Bizarrap to fade into the background”.
It is that, as Mendez explains in Time: “Bizarrap cultivates an air of mystery, so much so that when it began to gain popularity, people wondered if it was a real person. The Argentine producer and DJ can usually be seen in the background of his videos, with his back to the camera, shadows obscuring his eyes, giving the floor, or, more accurately, the microphone, to the artists he invites in the mega-popular music of YouTube, video series that began four years ago.
