Carin León continues his rapid ascent after a monumental year, including winning a Latin Grammy for Best Norteño Album for Colmillo de Leche and releasing two massive hit singles, with “Primera Cita” and “Según Quién” each charting Top 25 on Spotify and Top 30 on the Billboard Global 200. His latest single “ALCH SI” with Grupo Frontera just reached the #1 spot on Billboard's Regional Mexican Airplay chart. Most recently, he completed an extensive sold-out run of U.S. arenas with his “Colmillo de Leche Tour.” The 38-date run saw León performing at Los Angeles’ Crypto*com Arena, Newark’s Prudential Center, Houston’s Toyota Center, Miami’s Kaseya Center and more.

Originally from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, León embarked on his musical journey at the age of 15, taking his first steps by learning to play the guitar and developing skills in singing and songwriting. In 2018 León released his debut album Desvelada con Banda y Mariachi which propelled him to quickly dominate the Regional Mexican music scene as a performer, singer and songwriter. In 2021 his album INÉDITO debuted atop the Apple Music charts, reaching #1 on the Mexican Music chart and #3 on the Latin Music chart and was named one of Billboard’s 25 Best Latin Albums of the year. León has received countless nominations and multiple awards, including an ASCAP Award for the song “Me La Aventé,” numerous Premio Lo Nuestro Awards (“Regional Mexican Breakthrough Artist,” “Best Male Artist” and “Banda Song of the Year”) and a 2022 Latin Grammy win for “Best Regional Mexican Song” for “Como lo Hice Yo,” a collaboration with Mexican pop group Matisse.
