Aitana Ocaña Morales (born 27 June 1999), known mononymously as Aitana, is a Spanish singer. She first gained national recognition in 2017, placing as the runner-up in series nine of the Spanish reality television talent competition Operación Triunfo. While competing on the show, Aitana recorded the single "Lo Malo" with fellow companion Ana Guerra as part of the songs in the running to represent Spain in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. The song became an instant hit in Spain, debuting at number-one and holding the spot for several weeks. Following the competition, Aitana expanded her pre-contract with Universal Music and released her debut solo single "Teléfono" to commercial success and streaming-breaking records.

The singer later issued an extended play, Tráiler, in November 2018, which topped the charts in her home country once again. Her debut studio album, Spoiler, was released in June 2019 and received a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. Its accompanying concert tour visited many indoor arenas in Spain and was taped for the video album Play Tour: En Directo. Aitana later collaborated with international acts such as Morat, David Bisbal and Katy Perry. In late 2020 she released her sophomore album 11 Razones. It spawned the top five singles "+" featuring Cali y El Dandee and "Corazón Sin Vida" featuring Sebastián Yatra.

Throughout her career, Aitana has won two Premios Odeón, four Los40 Music Awards, a Radio Disney Music Award and a Kids' Choice Award, among many others. She has also been nominated for two Latin Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, and an MTV Europe Music Award.
