|Birth name||José Daniel Betances|
|Also known as||El Nene la Amenaza|
|Born||August 4, 1995|
Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic
|Associated acts||Don Omar, G-Eazy, Farruko, El Alfa, Bryant Myers, De La Ghetto, Myke Towers, Nicky Jam|
He is praised for his combination of reggaeton and R&B music. He has collaborated with artist such as Lary Over, El Alfa, Bryant Myers, G-Eazy, Farruko, Don Omar, De La Ghetto, Myke Towers, and Nicky Jam. His song “Baby” with Nicky Jam and Farruko garnered over 200 million views on YouTube.
His so-called nickname "El Nene" is due to the fact that when he was about 10 years old he was part of a group of fans and as he was the youngest he decided to call himself that way. Apart from singing, El Nene always liked to play ball, a sport in which he began to stand out, managing to travel to Mexico with a small baseball league, when he was 11 years old with coach Fernando Paulino. However, music was taking over his soul and in a short time that was his great passion. “I was more inclined towards music while I was growing up, because it was the most inspiring me,” he said. As an amateur he made about seven songs a few years ago, but none of them had a hit, such as La Sicaria, Capel 2, Despegue and others. In 2013 he achieved his first hits with the musical cut "After the party", a song that opened the doors to him in the music market. “That was my first song that sounded mine, which I recorded with“ Los Mellos ”. “They promoted it very well because they had how to do it and from then on people started talking about me,” said the urban music singer. His next success was in 2014. This is the theme "La Chanty" followed by "Me Haces Falta", "Munchies De Mujeres", "Sin Maquillaje", the latter duet with Don Miguelo, among others.
In addition, he confesses that he did not expect such an extraordinary punch, because wherever he goes, people receive him with euphoria and much joy, something he understands was not expected to happen so quickly and never imagined that the future would offer him a successful artistic career and with which he would direct his family to have a better life.
