Former hustle for music career
Jhay Cortez was very young when he started preparing songs. The inspirational rapper has a long story to tell. He was almost 15 years old when he started composing songs and that piqued producer Eddie Dee’s interest in him. He began developing his songs alongside producers Lele “El arma secreta” and Eliel. With them he started writing songs and in this way he soon started connecting the industry. Together with the duo Zion & Lennox he worked and composed two songs called “Como curar” and “Detective de tu amor”.
Jhay has provided many of the industry’s blockbuster and well-known songs, including the hit Los Verdaderos album. He later worked directly on the five singles for Tito El Bambino and one of them was the hit called “Llama al sol” released on the 2011 album Invincible.

Jhay Cortez’s career
Although Jhay Cortez got into the singing industry at the age of 15, he developed his profession in 2013 when he started as a singer and started singing for the Latin pop group called Stereo 4. Stereo 4 was born with the idea of Joel Baez, who took the plunge with Roberto Sanchez and worked on the inseparable working duo Jhay Nieves (singer of the group).

Names included Jafet Cortes, Eduardo Esteras, Rubén Chinea and Jesús M. Nieves. At some point, Cortez established himself as a soloist.
Rise to Fame
In 2016, the young singer-rapper worked with the group for the last time for the hit “Te quiero ver,” which was (in reality) his former group’s collaboration, and he debuted the song as a soloist.
