After premiering his latest single “Life” last month, the Puerto Rican artist Joonti has been selected as an artist you should know during the month of October according to the music platform Audiomack. Each month, the streaming service picks 10 risin artists and introduces them via social media.
Joonti, who is signed under AP Global Music label, reached one million views on YouTube with “Life”, five days after its release. The song, composed by the artist himself, is all about celebrating life, and enjoying the little things and experiences while making every moment worthwhile because in the end that’s what we take with us rather than the material things.
Jonathan Andrés Pagán Vélez, better known as “Joonti”, is a singer-songwriter born on June 21, 2002 in Caguas, Puerto Rico. From a young age, Joonti had a great interest in music, and driven by this interest, his parents enrolled him in competitions like La Voz Kids when he was just 11 years old. However, it was not until 2019 that Joonti became interested in pursuing music as a profession and began uploading freestyles on Instagram, producing thousands of visits. With his music, Joonti seeks to differentiate himself from other artists by interpreting his songs in a new and unique way.
Joonti has scored his first ever million of views on Youtube after his most recent single “Life” reached the figure five days after its release.
“I can’t believe it. It is definitely a dream that has come true” says the 19-year-old singer who recently performed at AP Global’s showcase in Miami, FL during Billboard Latin week, last month.
“Life” is Joonti’s 4th single, following “Kendall,” “Sentencia,” and “Kendall Remix,” and his first single with AP Global. The song is all about celebrating life, and enjoying the little things and experiences while making every moment worthwhile because in the end that’s what we take with us rather than the material things.
