The urban artist “Mando El Pelado” is promoting “Olvidar”, the new single he recorded in collaboration with the Puerto Rican singer from the Bronx (New York) called E.Q .Armando F. Arteaga is the name of this singer who was born in the United States and whose parents are Ecuadorians. The song was produced by Eddiel, a Dominican producer who has worked on his previous projects like “Es Complicado EP”.
The song “Olvidar” was ‘mixed’ and mastered in the renowned New York studio Quad Studios, in charge of the sound engineer Geeflow who has worked with artists such as Busta Rhymes, Lil Baby, Ozuna, Tainy and many more. “Olvidar” is about a love that cannot be forgotten. The song also includes parts in English, which are interpreted by the artist E.Q.
Mando always wanted to make a song in both languages: Spanish and English. The two recorded their parts together at the studio “The Vibe NYC” located in Queens, New York. Mando and E.Q met three years ago, since they are the family of the duo Miguel and John Q., with whom “Mando El Pelado” has shared the stage. The video is directed by Edgar Andrade. On May 27, he was nominated for the urban awards organized by Univisión and at the event show he presented his new song with the artist E.Q.
Armando Arteaga at age 6 moved with his parents to Guayaquil. He lived in that city until he was 13 years old and then returned to New York, where he currently lives. 2020 was a key year for “Mando El Pelado” because he was invited for the second time to appear at the Calle 8 Festival in Miami on the Univision platform, but this event was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. His songs “Hoy se va bebe”, “La que Vale”, “Tu amigo”, “Deseos”, “Bésame” and “Traición” were chosen to be part of the Ecuavisa telenovela “If you can”. He also released a song titled “Corito Sano” with the Guayaquil singer Oveja Negra. “Mando” was the best urban artist at the Viva La Juventud Awards organized by the Telemundo network.
