Abraham Mateo Chamorro (born 25 August 1998), better known as Abraham Mateo, is a Spanish singer, songwriter and actor.[3][4][5] He is known for his soulful and dance-oriented music.[6]

Mateo was only seven when he began winning prizes on television shows and at the age of nine, he was awarded the Revelation Prize at Spain's national music contest for kids.[4][7] For over three years, Mateo starred as a regular on children's TV show Menuda Noche, where he stood out for his strong vocal abilities and stage presence. Around age ten, he signed a recording contract with EMI Music Spain and released a debut self-titled album, Abraham Mateo.[2]

He returned four years later with his second album, AM, on Sony Music Spain.[8] The album showcased Mateo's growth as a performer and found him incorporating electronic and dance elements into his sound. With the single "Señorita", he made his breakthrough in the music scene, achieving a great success in Spain and Latin America.[9][10][11] "Señorita" stayed in the Spain's Top 50 single charts for almost a year and its music video was the most trending music video of 2013 in YouTube Spain.[12] In 2014 Mateo released his third studio album, Who I AM, which peaked at number one in Mexico and Spain.[13][14][15] A fourth album, Are You Ready?, followed a year later, showcasing his own songwriting skills and a more mature style. Mateo's albums have received one Platinum and three Gold certifications in Spain.[14][16][17] In 2017, he released "Loco Enamorado", an urban pop song featuring Farruko that marks Mateo's comeback to the spotlight. "Loco Enamorado" entered Billboard charts, Spotify's Global Top 50, and has been multi-Platinum certified in US, Spain and Latin America.[18][19] Recently, he released "Háblame Bajito" with 50 Cent and Austin Mahone and "Se Acabó El Amor" with Yandel and Jennifer Lopez.[20]

From 2014 onwards, Mateo has embarked on three concert tours across Spain and Latin America, delivering over 80 live shows altogether. Being so young, he sold out countless shows at major venues and arenas such as the National Auditorium in Mexico City, the Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, the Caupolicán Theatre in Santiago de Chile, and the Sports Centre in Madrid. He was the opening act for the British boyband One Direction in Peru, Chile and Spain as part of their 2014's Where We Are Tour.[21][22] Mateo has performed on the European Spanish soundtrack of several computer-animated movies and series including Frozen and Minions.[23][24][25] He has appeared in small roles and cameos in TV movies and series broadcast in Spain and Portugal.[26]

He has collaborated with numerous other artists, including Farruko, Pitbull, 50 Cent, Austin Mahone, CNCO, Ha*Ash, Lali Espósito, Carlos Rivera, Río Roma, CD9, Dvicio, Alejandro Sanz and Malú. Mateo has co-written many of his own hits with notable musicians such as Damon Sharpe, Poo Bear, Lindy Robbins, Lauren Christy, Eric Sanicola, Jacobo Calderón, Descemer Bueno, Mónica Vélez, The Jackie Boyz, Mario Domm, Jörgen Elofsson, Andre Merritt, Aris Archontis, José Luis Roma, John Reid and Talay Riley.

He has received four nominations for the Premios Juventud awards, presented by the American Spanish-language television network Univisión.[27][28][29] In 2015, Billboard named him to their "21 Under 21's Next Class" list of "music's hottest young stars", and also placed him on their Top 10 young Latin acts list[30][31]

Beginnings[edit]

Abraham Mateo was born on 25 August 1998 in San Fernando, Cádiz, the younger child of Antonio Mateo, a construction worker and security guard, and Susana Chamorro, a housewife. He has an older brother, Tony, who also sings and plays music. Mateo was born into a family with musical roots; his maternal grandfather was a tenor soloist with a church choir, his paternal grandfather was a flamenco singer, and his mother sings Boleros and Spanish music. He started singing at the age of three by imitating the performances of the TV talent show Operación Triunfo. Mateo's first vocal coach was his mother Susana and he later continued his music education by attending singing lessons. He learned to play flute at age six, piano and keyboard at age eight, and acoustic guitar at age ten, teaching himself how to play by ear.[32][33]

In 2006, at the age of seven, he was awarded with a special mention at the regional music competition for kids in Andalusia, organized by the Teresa Rabal Foundation. Two years later, he won the revelation award at the national competition.[4][7] In 2008, he debuted in the children's television show "Menuda Noche" that airs on the Canal Sur TV of Andalusia.[34] For over four years, Mateo starred as a regular in "Menuda Noche", where he performed songs by Nino Bravo,[35] Rocío Dúrcal,[36] Alejandro Sanz,[37] David Bisbal,[38] Miguel Gallardo,[39] Sandro Giacobbe,[40] David Bustamante and other Latin artists.

Music career[edit]

Early 2009, around age ten, he signed a recording contract with EMI Music Spain, releasing in December of the same year his self-titled debut album, Abraham Mateo.[2][41][42][43] The album, recorded in Madrid, includes original ballads written by his producer Jacobo Calderon, covers of songs by Raphael, Alejandro Sanz, Laura Pausini, and Luis Fonsi, as well as a duet with the French singer Caroline Costa.

In 2009 he also debuted as actor in the TV miniseries Días Sin Luz, which recounts the search for the missing girl Mari Luz Cortes. Mateo played the younger brother of Mari Luz in the miniseries broadcast by Antena 3 in Spain. A year later, he portrayed Falín, the young Raphael, in the Antena 3 miniseries based on the life of the legendary Spanish singer.[26]

After the release of his debut album, he continued covering songs in Spanish,[44][45] Italian,[46] and English (including a duet with Sabrina Carpenter)[47][48] and then uploading the videos to YouToube. In November 2011, Mateo released "Desde que te fuiste", a Latin dance song written by himself, on ITunes.[49]

In 2012 he signed to Sony Music Spain and to Rosa Lagarrigue, long-time manager of Alejandro Sanz, Miguel Bosé and Mecano.

A year later, he delivered his sophomore studio album AM.[8] The album was recorded in Madrid and Miami and marked a turn in his music towards pop and electropop, dance elements, and Spanglish lyrics. AM debuted at number six on the Spain's albums chart, was listed for 52 weeks and certified Gold by Promusicae.[8][50][16]

He rose to popularity with the release of AM's first single, "Señorita".[1][9][10] The song, written by Herbie Crichlow and Thomas Troelsen, was listed for 40 weeks on the Spain's Top 50 singles chart, peaked on number three, and was certified Gold in Spain.[51] The music video for "Señorita" was the most trending music video of 2013 on YouTube Spain.[11][12] By April 2013, Mateo was ranked at number 3 on the Billboard's Next Big Sound chart.[52] In July, he performed "Señorita" at the 2013 Premios Juventud Awards in Miami, where he was nominated as "Best New Artist".[28][27][29]

The album's second single, "Girlfriend", written by Charlie Mason, was released early October 2013 and debuted within the top fifteen in Spain.[53][54] The third single, "Lánzalo", written by Jacobo Calderón and Mateo himself, was released in March 2014 as a charity single, in support of UNICEF campaign for the children who suffer as a result of the Syrian conflict.[55] The song debuted at number two on the Spain's Top 50 singles chart.[56]

The album, titled Who I AM and released in Spain and Latin America in November 2014, is a collection of broken beats, throwback funk vibes, futuristic beats and organic arrangements.[13] A special edition of the album followed in June 2015, featuring guest appearances by Dvicio, Critika & Saik and Lerica. Who I AM peaked at number one in Mexico and Spain and was certified Platinum by Promusicae.[14][15][17]

To promote Who I AM, he embarked on a tour to Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Dominican Republic and Mexico.[60] In this last country, Mateo performed with Carlos Rivera at Teatro Metropólitan and with the Mexican boyband CD9 at Mexico City Arena.[15] The Who I AM concert tour began in December 2014 in Barcelona and ended after nine months and almost 40 shows, including a big concert at Sports Palace, in Madrid.

A year later, Mateo delivered his fourth studio album, Are You Ready?, which debuted at number 3 in Spain and at number 7 in Mexico.
