In January 2017, Chimbala had the “To lo gogo” and “Desacatao” singles playing on all the main radios of the Dominican Republic, and achieved millions of plays in his YouTube channel.  

Fast Forward to May 2018, the project “Mannequin” is released.

The hits continued to come for the Dominican SuperStar, the next one being “So jealous”, which has millions of views on YouTube. 

These tracks gave Chimbala the push to become one of the most popular urban artists in 2018. By mid-2018, the Princess films company shot a film that gave Chimbala the opportunity to reach the big screen with “Dead End Street”.
