Ronny Kevin Roldán Velasco (born March 8, 1993), professionally known as Kevin Roldán, is a Colombian reggaeton and Latin trap singer.

Biography[edit]

Ronny Kevin Roldán Velasco spent his childhood in Cali, Colombia where he started to pursue a musical career since he was 13 years old. He produced his first songs and experimented with reggaeton beats.

Roldán's earliest song was "Macatraca" (Contra la Pared), and it was quickly liked by his fellow Colombians.

Roldán then also promoted the song by throwing a party in a large hall where it sold three thousand tickets.

In 2013, Roldán signed a deal with Kapital Music and released his first song "Salgamos" with Andy Rivera and Maluma, being featured in the song and rapidly climbed to number 1 on the music charts of Colombia and the song now has over 300 million views on YouTube. The song was also popular in Latin America and Spain which earned it gold.[1][2]

In 2014, Roldán collaborated with Puerto Rican reggaeton artist Nicky Jam to make "Una Noche Mas", which now has over 180 million views YouTube.

Later that year, Roldán also collaborated with fellow Colombian reggaton artist "Ronald "El Killa" to make "Quien Te Va Amar Como Yo", which now has over 130 million views on youtube.

In 2015, Roldán was invited to the birthday party of soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo. In the party he was seen alongside several other famous soccer players from Real Madrid like James Rodriguez, Keylor Navas, and Marcelo.[3] which caused controversy in social media and the sports world.[4] Months later he was mentioned by Gerard Piqué.[5] That same year he released two more singles: "Nadie Como Tu" and "Contigo".

In 2016, he signed with the music label Universal Music Latin[6] and recorded several songs such as "Me Matas" with Arcangel.

While in Argentina, Roldán met Luciano Clivo, a friend of Puerto Rican rapper Bryant Myers, who suggested that Roldán work with Myers, and they released "¿Por Qué Sigues Con Él? Remix"
