Is there anything Tokischa can’t do?
The Dominican urban artist keeps pushing the envelope. This time around with a collaboration with the famed Mexican rapper, Natanael Cano.
On November 15th, the unlikely duo released the corrido, “Kilos de Amor,” where La Toki takes a break from her dembow beats to give her fanbase a glimpse at her artistry and talent’s versatility. It’s worth mentioning that corridos have – traditionally – been men’s songs. But if we know anything about the Dominican star is that she is willing to go beyond the status quo to make a point.
Getting to know Natanael Cano
Cano, who brought corridos to Coachella, is also an artist who loves to push boundaries. Entering the music industry at barely 18 years old, he moved to L.A. in 2019 when he signed with Rancho Humilde. There, the Hermosillo, Sonora native continued to blend his unique sound of Mexican corridos and trap music. His short career has allowed him to amass notable success. Throughout his musical journey, his artistic flow was even noticed by Bad Bunny, who sang “¡Viva México!” in Cano’s remix of “Soy El Diablo.”
Recently, Cano launched his own label – Los CT – after a public dispute with Rancho Humilde.
