While he doesn’t deny that talent is a family trait, for singer-songwriter Luis Alberto Aguilera, son of late Mexican music legend Juan Gabriel, his music is a story of his own.

The 18-year-old singer, who released two singles, Incertidumbre & Anoche, in 2017, said he’s been putting the finishing touches on his new production. Aguilera said his debut album should be ready to hit the market this June.

“I don’t like to pigeonhole myself into any specific genre,” he said. “Because I like to go with the flow and experiment with different types of music but lately, I’ve felt very inspired by urban music and Latino urban music artists like Bad Bunny, Natti Natasha, Becky G and Ozuna.”

Like in everything else, when it comes to music collabs Aguilera is a laid-back, go-with-the-flow type. And says he likes his work and any possible artist features to be organic.
“We’d have to meet and have to have a connection,” he said. “That’s the way I envision it.”
