Enter to win four tickets to Young Miko at the Fillmore Auditorium on July 31 at 7 p.m.

María Victoria Ramírez de Arellano Cardona, artistically recognized as Young Miko, is an artist and composer born in Añasco, Puerto Rico. Her passion for sports and art led her to acquire her first microphone with the income she earned as a tattoo artist. That's how she started recording her songs in her room.

In July 2021, she debuted with the single “105 Freestyle '', marking the beginning of her career in the urban genre. Surprising the industry, she made an impact with the Trap/Rap “Vendetta” in collaboration with Villano Antillano. She closed 2021 as one of the most influential female artists of her generation in Puerto Rico with the release of “Puerto Rican Mami.” In July 2022, she released her first EP called “Trap Kitty'' where she demonstrated her complete dominance in the music scene. The EP started with “Standard,” the album's main track. Then, she made an impact with “Riri,” a song that has exceeded 30 million views to date. This success solidified her image as a versatile and outgoing performer. Her first world tour, the “Trap Kitty World Tour” took her to perform in 17 countries with a total of 46 shows in 44 cities, all sold out to capacity.

Songs like “Wiggy” and “Lisa” contributed to her career growth. In particular, “Lisa,” which surpassed 30 million views and positioned Young Miko as the first Puerto Rican artist to enter a solo song in Spotify's Global Top 200, reached #150. During 2023, she released collaborations such as “Chulo, Pt 2” with Tokischa and Bad Gyal, “ID” with Jowell & Randy, and “Colmillo” with Tainy, J Balvin, and Jowell & Randy. In addition, she received recognition as “Billboard's Latin Rookie of the Year” and was recognized as a Breakthrough Artist at the Los 40 Awards held in Madrid.

In her brief but successful career, collaborations such as “Classy 101” with the Colombian singer Feid stand out, which was positioned on the Hot 100 Latin Song Billboard. In addition, her collaboration with Bad Bunny in "Fina" debuted in second position on the Billboard Hot Latin Song and positioned itself on the Hot 100 Latin Song chart.

On the other hand, the singer and songwriter began 2024 by launching the 58th session of the renowned Argentine producer Bizarrap, which has more than 55 million views on YouTube.

At the 22nd edition of the Coachella festival, she made her debut as the only Puerto Rican to perform at this festival, which brings together great artists for two weekends a year, marking a significant milestone in her career.

Young Miko, who defines herself as someone with values, flaws, goals to achieve, dreams and ideals, obtained two nominations in the 36th edition of the Premio Lo Nuestro. She was nominated in the Female Artist of the Year - Urban and Song of the Year - Urban categories for her "Classy 101" hit, which won.

Additionally, she has been honored at the Billboard Women in Music Awards ceremony, where she received the Impact Award. This recognition comes after the song "Classy 101" reached Billboard's Hot 100 Latin Song last year.
