Daniel Valencia, better known as DANEON, is a Colombian singer-songwriter and music producer, who has stood out in the music industry for his dominance in the fusion of genres such as Pop, R&B, Reggaeton and the traditional rhythms of Latin music. His music has transcended international levels, as several of his compositions and productions have stood out behind the hits of artists Marc Anthony, Bad Bunny, Will Smith, Karol G, DJ Blass and Llane. In addition, he participated in the sound engineering of productions of Daddy Yankee, Dj Blass, Ivy Queen, Jay Cortez, Karol G, Maluma, Nicky Jam, Wisin, Tainy, Zion & amp; Lenox, among others.

From his upbringing between Colombia and Venezuela, Daneon grew up exposed to traditional Latin music, such as ballads and boleros, as well as the rhythms of international popular music. He was surrounded by influences from mainstream artists such as the Beatles, Michael Jackson, John Mayer, and Bob Marley. In the same way, he was very influenced by Latin icons such as Maná, Shakira, Fito Paez, Juanes, among others.

His studies at the university between Colombia and the United States made him a professional in classical music, and the production of commercial music. Years later DANEON managed to establish himself between the cities of Miami and New York as a producer and DJ, with his own artistic project of Pop / Electronic music, and at the same time he embarked on his path in musical production with artists of the Reggaeton genre.

This single conquered massive audiences worldwide, debuting # 2 on Billboard’s “Latin Digital Song Sales” chart and # 5 on the prominent “Hot Latin Songs” listing. Also, this song was the opening of the 2018 Latin GRAMMYs ceremony.
