“Tracksuit Nike, it used to be Kipsta” he sings on ‘Ella’, his now most viral song and one of the Spanish summer hits in 2021. The rise of El Bobe has been meteoric, from spanish urban rookie to the urban sensation in 2021.
The Barcelona artist has been building a loyal community of fans over the last few years, thanks to danceable anthems such as ‘Je m’apelle blessed’, one of the first afrotrap songs released in Spain, and also with Spanish drill songs ‘Aventador’ and ‘Ronaldinho’. However, everything changed last spring break, when he dropped ‘Ella’, a song that has spent months on the Spanish Top 50 playlist.
El Bobe has all the ingredients to become the next Spanish rap star: young, ambitious, but always keeping his feet on the ground. Unafraid to try out new genres or collaborations with other artists, always keeping the realness and personality that distinguishes him. He’s already one of the drill and afro artists to watch in Spain, and few artists in the scene managed to create a hit like ‘Ella’. He hasn’t reached his peak, and is just getting started.
