Biography

1994-2017: Early life and career beginnings

Camilo Echeverry Correa was born in Medellín. His family home did not have a radio, but housed a collection of records by artists such as The Beatles, Charly Garcia, Facundo Cabral, Mercedes Sosa, and Pink Floyd. He recalled, "That was my first seed, since I was little, my dream was to inherit that." He formed a musical duo with his sister, Manuela, and auditioned for XS Factor with her, but the pair did not reach final round of the competition. After winning the show as a solo artist the following year in 2007, Camilo began his career with the release of the single, “Regálame Tu Corazón”.

In 2008, Camilo made appearances on Colombian telenovelas Super Pá and En los tacones de Eva, as well as the children's program Bichos. He released the 2010 album Tráfico de Sentimientos and shortly after its release, Camilo decided to take a break from releasing his own music. In 2015, he moved to Miami, Florida, where he then furthered his career by writing songs for other artists, including "Sin Pijama" by Becky G and Natti Natasha’s, “Veneno” by Anitta, and “Ya No Tiene Novio” by Sebastian Yatra with Mau y Ricky. “Ya No Tiene Novio”, released in August 2018, garnered over 517 million views on Youtube by March of the next year.

2018-present: Success as a solo artist

Upon re-launching his solo career, Camilo made changes to his image. He eschewed his previously clean-cut style in favor of a more bohemian look, complete with a handlebar moustache. In 2018, he released the song "Desconocidos" with Manuel Turizo and Mau & Ricky. The ukulele-tinged reggaeton song peaked at number 23 on the Billboard Latin Pop Airplay chart. Following the success of "Desconocidos", Camilo revealed in February 2019 that he had signed with Sony Music Latin. On February 22, 2019, Camilo performed at the Venezuela Live Aid concert in Cúcuta, Colombia, a town located on the border with Venezuela. He reflected on the experience by explaining "It was a concert that moved me a lot. It was not easy, but so many people are suffering. I felt happy to be a part of raising global awareness to show what is happening in Venezuela is a tremendous injustice."

He released the video and single for "No Te Vayas" as his mainstream debut on March 28, 2019, and by August of that year, the video had reached more than 59 million views on Youtube. His 2019 song "La Boca" with Mau & Ricky was certified triple-platinum. After the release of the song, he made his US television debut, performing "La Boca" and "No Te Vayas" at the 2019 Premios Juventud in Miami. He released the song "Tutu" in collaboration with Puerto Rican singer Pedro Capó, which reached the number two position on the Latin Pop Airplay chart. Describing the lyrical content of the song, Camilo explained, “This song is who I am, what I feel every time I get on a stage or when I see my girlfriend.” Camilo released the album Por Primera Vez on April 17, 2020, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Latin Pop Albums chart and number five on the Top Latin Albums chart. The album contains the singles "Tutu" and "Favorito".

Musical style

Camilo describes himself as "an honest singer who uses love as a reason for his songs." His music is generally characterized as Latin pop and reggaeton. Suzette Fernandez of Billboard labeled his music as "romantic pop songs fused with urban beats". His vocals have been described as "distinctly delicate". He cites Uruguayan singer Jorge Drexler as a major influence on his work. He is also noted for his positivity on social media. Lucas Villa of MTV described his Instagram feed as "a Latinx Hallmark card filled with positive messages of hope", exemplified by his bio section consisting of "AMAR ES MI REVOLUCIÓN" ("Love is my revolution").

Personal life

His parents are Lía Correa and Eugenio Echeverry. He has a sister named Manuela. In February 2020, he married Evaluna Montaner, daughter of the Venezuelan singer and songwriter Ricardo Montaner and sister of the Venezuelan duo Mau y Ricky.
