Charting Panamanian singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer Sech arrived on the reggaeton and dancehall scenes with his slinky, seductive, Rich Music debut single "Little Miss Lonely" (featuring Justin Quiles and De La Ghetto) in 2018. Seemingly out of nowhere, the urbano had established his roots as part of Panama's El Combo de Oro production stable before going solo, and within a few short years, he was the most visible, media-savvy persona on Panama's music scene. Sech's canny rhythmic and lyrical intelligence was evidenced by video singles such as "¡Que Más Pues!" (featuring Justin Quiles), which racked up over 63 million views in its first three months, and "Otro Trago" (featuring Darell), with almost 133 million views in a month. All this established Sech as Panama's best-selling musician and a sensation in the world of Latin music in general. His 2019 debut album, Suenos, entered his country's charts already in the top slot. Sech was born Carlos Isaías Morales Williams in Rio Abajo, Panama, in December of 1993. As a member of a devout evangelical Christian family (many of his relatives are pastors), he spent his formative years singing in church and learning to play piano, guitar, and bass, as well as other instruments. At 13 he and his brother formed a band that did original songs, but the secular material was initially discouraged by his family. A year later, he began entering singing and songwriting competitions and won several, as well as his family's support for his God-given talent. Sech learned production skills and earned a spot in the legendary Panamanian El Combo de Oro stable next to his mentor Rafita; he learned to record, write, sing, rap, and produce everything from salsa and son to bachata and reggaeton. In 2015, Sech made his first video/single "El Kbreo de Tu Pollo," with collaborators R.D. Maravilla, Real Phantom, Mr. Fox, and Robinho, and scored a considerable amount of radio play as well as a decent view count on YouTube. A few months later, he released the music video single "Sentimientos de Papel" (featuring El Blopa and El Tachi). Over three years, the video racked up over six million views. Its initial reception was popular enough to not only encourage Sech, but pique his imagination. In November of that year, he issued the now-famous "El Grammy" video single (featuring Robinho and El Blopa), with production from El Combo de Oro. These three tracks created the demand for Sech's breakthrough single in 2016. In all, he delivered four that year with high-ranking accompanying videos for the tracks "El Error," "X 4 Días," "Ella Es, and "Admítelo," all produced by El Combo de Oro. Early the following year, Sech released "Tocó Mentir," and his first non-El Combo De Oro production, "Mintiendo y Enamorando" (featuring Jhon El Divertido), produced by Rikemusic. Over the next two and half years, Sech was ubiquitous, not only releasing ten singles of his own -- all of which charted -- but appearing as a featured collaborator with everyone from Maluma and Dalex to Bad Bunny, Anuel AA, and Karol G. In 2019, Sech issued the video and streaming singles "Solito" (featuring Farruko and Zion and Lennox), "Falsas Promesas," "Tien Novio" (featuring Manuel Turizo), and "Otro" (featuring Darrell). The remix for his version of "Little Miss Lonely" did as well as the original. In March 2019, Suenos was issued by Rich Music and entered the streaming urban charts at number one. ~ Thom Jurek
