Fito Blanko

843974_10151421159615240_538911358_oFito Blanko is an irresistible new artist from Canada whose charisma and passion have propelled him to the forefront of the Latin music scene. Hit single “Pegadito Suavecito” (where he featured with merengue icon Elvis Crespo) reached #1 on the Billboard Latin Tropical Chart in November 2012.

Fans and industry professionals agree Fito Blanko is one of the hottest new talents to enter the Latin Crossover market.

Fito emigrated from Panama to Canada as a youngster, and he began writing lyrics in English and Spanish at age 14. Fito’s debut album, Higher Level (2004), launched his career in the Latin market, and he was soon featured in magazines such as Urban Latino, Billboard and People en Español — where he was voted “The Newest Latin Sensation” for 2005. Fito also appeared on television channels Mun2, MTV, HTV and MuchMusic, and he received the Latin Industry Award for “Best Solo Artist” and the Canadian Urban Music Award for “Global Rhythms, International Recording Artist.”

Fito’s touring schedule brought him to every major city in Canada, and he showcased his talent as the closing act for the TLN Latin Fest in the summers of 2005, 2008 and 2010. 

Fito’s success continued as he collaborated with an array of talented artists, such as Daryl Riley and Grammy-winning reggae artist Beenie Man in the hit single “Tear it Up”; with the popular rapper Drake — whom Fito met through their mutual producer Sensei Musica — on the song “Mambo”; and with Omar Ferrari on the sensual dancehall track “Whine On You.”

He expanded into the American market in 2011 with the independent release of the catchy mambo track “VIP, which charted on three U.S. Latin Billboard Charts: Latin Rhythm, Tropical Latin and Latin Pop. From New York to L.A. to Miami, Fito quickly developed a reputation for turning up the heat at parties with his electrifying performances and dazzling charm.

The year 2012 kicked off with Canada’s largest daily newspaper, the Toronto Star, giving Fito front-page coverage in its People to Watch 2012 feature. The recent #1 Billboard Tropical Chart success of “Pegadito Suavecito” (Produced by Sensei Musica) has the industry buzzing with anticipation over Fito’s upcoming album Amor y Dinero. As the co-owner and president of Crown Loyalty Entertainment (Music Company), run by some of Toronto’s brightest young entrepreneurs, Fito has the support and know-how for advancing into the international spotlight. 

In 2013 Fito shared the stage with Icon Elvis Crespo performing the #1 Tropical Latin Billboard hit Pegadito Suavecito during the Premios Lo Nuestro 25th Anniversary awards ceremony.  In July, Fito was nominated for the Cancion Del Verano (Song Of Summer) at the Premios Juventud where he performed live, with DJ Chino and Papayo, their hit single Si te Agarro.  Adding to the list of nominations, Pegadito Suavecito for the Best Party Song (Canción Comienza-Fiestas) at the Premios Tu Mundo in Aug 2013, has made Fito a leading voice in Tropical music.  Oct 2013, Pegadito Suavecito in which Fito was a composer and featured artist, was nominated for the ‘Best Urban Performance’ category for the Latin Grammys.  

His fresh style, signature voice, sexiness and congeniality will likely see Fito continue to dominate the charts well into the future
