Miami, FL. (December 9, 2021) – The emerging artist who continues to put Argentina on the map, KHEA, returns to immerse the public in a unique musical experience that ignites all five senses due to its sensual and explosive sound. For this occasion, he is joined by Puerto Rican artist Lenny Tavarez to launch the song “FVCKBOI” which is now available on all digital platforms through Interscope Records/Young Flex.
Produced by Honeyboos and Nobeat, with whom the Argentine artist has collaborated on the successful songs “Dónde estás” and “Ayer Me Llamó Mi Ex”, the song presents a story of desire between two people from different social classes who can’t avoid being together. It is a very sensual song, whose sound transports you to a different world than KHEA fans are used to. In addition, Lenny Tavarez arrives to ignite the song with his melodious voice and playful lyrics, achieving the perfect combination between Argentina and Puerto Rico.
“Working with Lenny Tavarez on this song was the best. He is extremely talented and we both achieved the result we wanted. A Latin trap song with very catchy lyrics but with different sounds than what the public has heard from me before. It’s a song that I really like and it shows the versatility I want to have in my career,” expressed KHEA.
The music video was directed by Martin Seipel and was filmed in Miami, FL. At the beginning of the video, KHEA and Lenny Tavarez play the role of two mechanics from a humble neighborhood, who sing about a girl that’s upper class which they connected with on a night out. Between the cars, motorcycle, and plenty of speed, the artists and the protagonist travel throughout the city to avoid meeting, however, in the end they end up at the same point to reconnect. Without a doubt, the cinematic visuals demonstrate the high level at which KHEA‘s career stands: stronger than ever.
KHEA‘s long list of hits includes “Ayer Me Llamó Mi Ex”, original version with Lenny Santos, a song that was placed in Spotify’s Global Top 50 and has more than 340 million combined streams, adding to this success is “Ayer Me Llamó Mi Ex Remix” [with Prince Royce and Natti Natasha] that debuted #1 in trend in several Latin American countries and has surpassed 300 million streams. On the other hand, “Wacha” along with fellow Argentine singer Duki, debuted #5 on Spotify’s Global Top Debut Songs chart and became the #1 trend on YouTube in 12 Latin American countries, and already has 140 million combined streams. His song “Te Necesito” with Argentine singer-songwriter María Becerra, has accumulated more than 130 million combined streams since its initial release. And, more recently, he released “Bien Chula” bringing Argentina to the world.
In addition, KHEA will soon go on tour in 2022 that will take him to different cities in Latin America and Spain. As of right now, these are the confirmed dates:

At only 20-years-old, Argentine artist KHEA fueled the explosion of Latin American trap to worldwide prominence. After quietly developing a sound of his own, he leapt to global renown with the 2017 single “LOCA.” Boosted by the remix alongside international superstar Bad Bunny, the song surpassed a staggering 1 billion combined streams. It also paved the way for a string of hits such as “Vete” (216 million views), “Se Motiva” (184 million views), and “Como Le Digo” (158 million views). Indicative of his versatility, he had the opportunity to collaborate with Blackbear on the song “Hot Girl Bummer” and with One Republic on “Better Days”. In 2019, he inked a deal with Interscope Records and joined the management roster of Electric Feel as the company’s first Latin act, in partnership with manager Austin Barmak. He also signed with agency WME and was one of only three Latin artists to participate in Europe’s main festivals. Expanding one of his biggest gold-selling bangers of 2020, KHEA released the official remix of “Ayer Me Llamó Mi Ex” with Natti Natasha and Prince Royce” [feat. Lenny Santos].
