This track also appeared on Billboard’s Global Excl U.S. and Global 200 charts, demonstrating his ability to transcend musical boundaries and achieve international recognition.

Debut Album and Future Projects

The album features 10 tracks and includes collaborations with artists from the new generation such as Brray, Ryan Castro, Maikel delacalle, Yng Lucas, and Blessd. Drawing inspiration from the vibrant reggaeton beats of Colombia’s streets, the album captures the essence of today’s urban sound. Looking ahead, SOG is set to release his second studio album in the coming year.

Global Influence and Ambitions

SOG is currently the third most listened-to Colombian producer on Spotify, following Ovy On The Drums and Sky Rompiendo.
