Andrés Felipe Rivera Galeano was born in Pereira, Colombia. He is the son of Colombian singer Jhonny Rivera and Luz Galeano. He started following his musical career with his dad at the age of 12, in his free time he dedicated himself to vocalization and playing the piano.

His dad wanted him to lead a singing career but instead, he chose to be a reggaeton artist. His first song was supported by his friend Pipe Calderon and his producer Dj Cano and made the song "En Busca Con Ella".

He then made a remix with Riko "El Monumental", He kept continuing his career by releasing more songs to get more fame, He released a song called "Si Me Necesitas" but also did not get much success from it, But when he made a remix of the song "Si Me Necesitas" with the popular Puerto Rican duo Baby Rasta & Gringo it had become a success.

He then made a great leap in his career when he realized two separate songs with very popular Puerto Rican reggaeton artists Nicky Jam and Dalmata, The song "Los Perros se Enamoran" with Nicky Jam was popular and some parts of Colombia but the most successful one "Espina de Rosa" With Dalmata was very successful gaining over 100 million views on YouTube. The song "Espina de Rosa" was so popular, that it was number 1 in many Spanish speaking countries.
