About Ivan Cornejo
Ivan Cornejo is a singer and songwriter of Regional Mexican Music from Riverside, California. Alma Vacía, his 2021 debut album, was released in August, just two months after his 17th birthday; it peaked at number two on the Regional Mexican Albums chart, while the singles "Noche de Relajo," and "Corazón Frío" also charted Top 20. A week before his 18th birthday, he issued the full-length Dañado; it topped genre charts during its first week of release.
In February 2022, Cornejo released the single "Perro Abandonado," a corrido of insufferable heartbreak. Two weeks later, he released "Triste.” . In June, a week before his 18th birthday, Cornejo released the romantic, ballad-centric Dañado, another seven-track album. It rocketed to the Top of the Regional Mexican Albums chart as well as streaming, debuted at number four at Top Latin Albums, and cracked the Top 200, entering at number 149.
Ivan is currently the second most consumed Regional Mexican artist in the US and top 10 overall Latin in the US. He has reached over 1.1 billion combined streams, notably one of the most nominated artists at his year’s Premio Lo Nuestro with 6 nominations and winning “Debut Artist of The Year” and “Regional Mexican Album Of The Year” at the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards, cementing his status as one of music’s most promising new generation of stars.
