Since then, he's been a regular on Latin music charts in the U.S. and around the world. His 2016 album Mantra produced another hit single, "Traicionera," which was classified double platinum in Colombia, platinum in Ecuador, Peru and Central America, and gold in Spain.

The following year, he hit the charts again with "Esperándote," "Bésame" (a collaboration with Puerto Rican reggaetón star Valentino), and "Déjala Que Vuelva" (on which he worked with the Colombian unit Piso 21).
