Dominican singer Andy Andy has emerged as one of a handful of musicians on the cutting edge of the Bachata craze, beginning with his debut album, Aqui Conmigo. Infused with traditional Dominican folk music and contemporary Bachata, Andy juxtaposes new and old sounds to reach a wide audience. With his sophomore album, Necesito un Amor, he was nominated for the Latin GRAMMY award for Best Contemporary Tropical Album. Andy Andy has topped the Billboard’s Top Tropical Albums charts with Ironia, which featured his staple sounds – guitar and percussion driven, mid-tempo rhythms and his mellifluous vocals that bring it all together. Its hit single, “Que Ironia” was multi-formatted as a ballad and in Bachata and Reggaeton styles. His success continued with the album Tu Me Haces Falta with his latest, Placer y Castiga peaking in the top 20 on the Billboard’s Tropical Album chart.
