Puerto Rican singer / songwriter / producer Lil Eddie is on his way to becoming household name. The 11x Grammy nominee has had an impressive 2018 between writing and producing for other artists (Eleni Foureira, Maluma, Aston Merrygold), working as a vocal coach on America’s Got Talent and X Factor UK, and releasing his own music.

Lil Eddie has a lot up his sleeve for 2019, but he’s closing out the year with the release of another solid bilingual single, “Ten Cuidado”. When asked about the inspiration behind “Ten Cuidado” Eddie shared, “Ten Cuidado is a song about the fear of falling in a relationship. One always falls harder. At times like in this story I’m the one pulling away warning, telling the girl don’t fall in love with me my heart doesn’t work anymore. But I’m honestly it’s the fear of me falling in love.
Born in Brooklyn, life was filled with his parents’ Puerto Rican culture and things were generally happy until Lil Eddie turned seven. A fire rendered his family homeless – sleeping in their cars and on the streets until they were able to find a home in Spanish Harlem. The neighborhood was rough, but it inspired Lil Eddie’s drive but also his musical influences.?
He’s a versatile Producer, Songwriter some of his latest placements are Charlie Wilson “Chills” which was #1 for 3 weeks on Billboard’s Urban AC chart, Maluma feat. Jason Derulo “La Ex”, Eurovison’s own Eleni Foureira hit song “Fuego”, Boy bands RAK-SU smash single “Dimelo” and Disney records bands In Real Life single “How Badly”.
Aside from the amazing song’s he’s helped craft for iconic talent, Lil Eddie also has a budding singing career for himself. He has seen worldwide success with his music, making an impressive impact in Japan especially – with five #1 albums and the demand for a Greatest Hits release.
“For so many years I’ve helped so many artist find their voice and sound. In that I abandoned my own voice and testimony. It’s time I tell the world my story and share my sound. Music found me and saved my life. I can’t die with all these songs and music inside my heart. This is the sound and voice of Spanish Harlem. The story of so many Latinos fighting for their dreams!”
Eddie is currently working on new music that will be coming in 2019.
