Xcelencia is coming off a run where he has reached over 35 million streams and 7 million listeners on Spotify while gaining notable editorial placements thru the success of his last EP "El Niño Que Grito Lobo."

As a multi-talented creator involved in every facet of his career, Xcelencia continues his journey proving that the vision is to go global as one of latin urban’s freshest and most dynamic acts.
