We’ve been addicted to the music of Latin Grammy-nominated rapper and singer Guaynaa since his single “ReBoTa” went totally viral in 2019.

Since then, we’ve seen hit song after hit song from the star, and there are no signs that he’s stopping anytime soon. In January, he released the sultry new track “El Payo” with India Martínez and its enchanting music video, which already has more than 2.7 million hits on YouTube. We can’t get enough of the artist and his stunning Spanish-language tracks, and here’s everything we learned about him as our latest Man Crush Monday.
