Formed in Tijuana in late 2018, the group's lineup includes Enrique Macias Jr. on bajoloche (acoustic bass), Miguel Ángel Salazar González on requinto (nylon six-string guitar), Miguel Angel Medina on guitar, and Andrade on lead vocals. Jimmy Humilde heard three original songs the band posted to SoundCloud: "La Piel Rayada," "El de la Chevy," and "No Soy lo Que Piensas." Impressed, he got in touch immediately, and after a short time, signed them to Rancho Humilde. He brought the group to Los Angeles to record late in 2019. In early 2020, the band delivered the video single for "Es Diferente," which registered more than a million views. Impressed with the reaction, Humilde quickly brought them in again to cut a handful of non-album singles that were released digitally and to radio in specialty markets. They registered across social media, bringing the band major industry attention. Porte Diferente appeared on Natanael Cano's Corazón Tumbado album, collaborating with the singer on a cover of their own "No Soy lo Que Piensas."
