Jhayco and Peso Pluma released an appealing music video for their “Ex-Special” single

Jhayco (@jhayco), formerly “Jhay Cortez,” is a leader of the new generation of Latin artists. Not too long ago, the Puerto Rican hitmaker recruited Mexican phenom, Peso Pluma, for their new Urbano Latino single, “Ex-Special.” The song isn’t the first time Jhayco has turned heads with collaborations and certainly won’t be the last as he continues to bring together creators into his Vida Rockstar world.

‘Ex-Special’ is about a still sizzling in-your-mind ex, showcasing the superstar’s latest Vida Rockstar season drop. Jhayco offers global appeal by taking a hands-on approach not only by getting in the studio to get behind the boards to self-produce the track but also by debuting as a co-director on the video. Coming off the heels of the global top-charting song, “Holanda,” “Ex-Special” is sure to be another global smash.

Jhayco brought the heat to Miami, where he celebrated the release of ‘Ex-Special’ with CÎROC Vodka Spritz, giving fans a first listen to his latest song, along with a performance of some of his biggest hits.

Jhayco marks a career milestone, entering the Top 50 for the first time as a solo release without a feature. The futuristic offering showcases Jhayco’s transformation and is accompanied by a NAVS-directed music video set in the post-apocalyptic city where his Vida Rockstar szn takes place.

Jhayco’s secret power: bringing together sonics from artists he admires into his own style. The trendsetting songwriter-producer combines new sounds and genres; continuing to pave the way for Urbano Latino music with electronic artists like Skrillex (“En Mi Cuarto”) to be the first to cross barriers with corridos like Ivan Cornejo (remixing “Esta Dañada”) and introducing artists loved in the indie world like Buscabulla (“Eternamente”) as well as bangers that will live the test of time, like Bad Bunny (“DÁKITI”.)

Jhayco continues to put women at the forefront as his muses, “Ex-Special” following “Holanda,” and Jhayco’s other summer anthem, “Mami Chula,” with Quevedo that serenades the coolest girl in the room. In another recent release, “Cuerpecito,” Jhayco pays adoration to women’s bodies. Jhayco’s previous collaboration with Sech and Feid, “En La De Ella,” boasts 34 million video views.

Jhayco’s summer has been hot, jumping on collabs with co-luminary Tainy (“FANTASMA | AVC”), Duki (“RoCKSTAR 2.0”), Haze (“En To Lao”), and KARBeats, Yan Block, and Omar Courtz (“Donde CRJ (Remix)).” Jhayco performed three of his smash collaborations with Bad Bunny at Coachella this year including their super-hit “Dákiti” which dominated the #1 spot on Billboard’s Global 200 chart, their most recent release “Tarot” and the “No Me Conoce” remix that recently hit 2.1 billion YouTube streams and still growing.
