Paulo Londra (born: April 12, 1998 (1998-04-12) [age 22]) is an Argentinian rapper, singer and composer. His music has topped Argentine charts and been highly successful across Argentina.

Early life

Londra was inspired to become a rap artist by watching Eminem's 8 Mile film. The urge to interpret his lyrics outside of a recording studio led him to improvise and rap in Argentinian squares with friends, gradually creating a local buzz. Leaving his comfort zone and freestyling in squares helped with his shyness, and launched a competitive period spanning around five years. He forged his style battling in freestyle contests as the so-called El Quinto Escalón, and rapidly stepped up to Latin trap.

Career

His professional career kicked off with "Relax", a song he uploaded in early 2017. Londra's music avoids themes prominent in urban music, such as violence and drugs.

Londra became to be known after his hit-songs "Nena Maldición", featuring Lenny Tavarez; "Te Amo", with Piso 21; and "Cuando Te Besé", with Becky G. The latter peaked at number 45 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs and became the first song to ever top the Billboard Argentina Hot 100. His song "Adán y Eva" topped Billboard's Argentina Hot 100, as well. In 2019, he was featured on Ed Sheeran's No. 6 Collaborations Project, with the theme called "Nothing on You", accompanied by British rapper, Dave.

On September 26 of the same year, Londra launched a collaboration with the American rapper, producer and composer, Artist Julius Dubose, also known as A Boogie wit da Hoodie, with the theme called "Party".
