Tito El Bambino is the stage name of Puerto Rican singer Efraín David Fines Nevares, born in the city of Carolina on October 5, 1981. Widely regarded as one of the most celebrated reggaeton artists of his generation, he made his debut in 1995 through a series of collaborations with the urban music collective The Noise 5 and later rose to fame as one-half of the seminal reggaeton duo Héctor & Tito. After the group's breakup in 2004, Tito El Bambino officially began his solo career with the full-length Top of the Line (2006), a star-studded affair that included cameos by Don Omar, Daddy Yankee, and Beenie Man, who guested on the single "Flow Natural." The album rose to the top of the charts in his native Puerto Rico and was also quite popular in the United States, where it reached Number 3 on the Top Latin Albums chart. A deluxe edition titled Top of the Line/El Internacional appeared in 2007, preceded by the hit single "Siente el Boom." Later that year, his sophomore effort It's My Time went to Number 1 on the US Latin Rhythm Albums chart thanks to the singles "Sólo Dime Que Sí" and "El Tra." Driven by chart-topping hits such as "El Amor" and "Mi Cama Huele a Ti" with Zion & Lennox, his third studio effort El Patrón broke streaming records in 2009, also topping the Top Latin Albums chart in the US. In the following years, Tito El Bambino remained a major player on the Latin urban music scene with releases like Invencible (2011), Invicto (2012), Alta Jerarquía (2014), and El Muñeco (2020).
