Musical career

1996–2004: Héctor & Tito

Tito and his partner released a number of hit songs in their native Puerto Rico, including "Amor de Colegio" (ft. Don Omar), "Felina", "Baila Morena" (ft. Glory), and "No Le Temas a Él", a song which not only raised their popularity, it helped raise popularity for the then up-and-coming Trebol Clan. After years of working together, they separated, but not before releasing a final album, Season Finale , which featured some of their greatest hits. The duo broke up due to Tito's belief of disloyalty from Hector. [ citation needed ]

Héctor & Tito released their first album in 1998. Together they became reggaeton stars after releasing several successful albums and making appearances in several compilations. They became one of the most sought-out duos in the genre. Both became the first reggaeton artists to sell out a massive concert in Puerto Rico, opening the path to other artists such as Tego Calderón, Daddy Yankee and others.

2004–2006: Solo career and Top of the Line

After much delay, his first solo album was released, Top of the Line . The album was a hit, reaching No. 1 in Puerto Rico.

Top of the Line featured 20 new songs, with collaboration from artists such as Daddy Yankee, Don Omar and Beenie Man. It featured quite a number of hits, such as "Caile", "Mía" (ft. Daddy Yankee), "Tu Cintura" (ft. Don Omar), "Flow Natural" (ft. Beenie Man and Deevani) "Secreto", "Máximo", "Tuve Que Morir" and "Me Da Miedo" among others.

Top of the Line/El Internacional is a limited edition of Tito's first album Top of the Line. It features five bonus new songs that were not included in the original version: "Siente El Boom (Remix)", "Enamorado", "Calentándote", "Bailarlo" and "Voy a Mí". The first single of the album is "Siente El Boom (Remix)" that is a big hit in Argentina. "Siente El Boom" is also on Chosen Few II: El Documental featuring Randy. [ citation needed ]

In Top of The Line: El Internacional, the remix features Randy, along with his partner Jowell, & De La Ghetto. The second single recently released, "Enamorado", did not get a lot of airplay as "Siente El Boom" was still a hit on Puerto Rico's radio stations. "Siente El Boom" expanded throughout Latin America, peaking at No. 14 in the Billboard Hot Latin charts. Apparently "Enamorado" got cancelled and now the third single is "Bailarlo" that's starting to get airplay on the radio and a video has already been released.[ citation needed ]

2007–2008: It's My Time

It's My Time is the second album by Tito "El Bambino" released on October 2, 2007. The first single "Solo Dime que Sí" received notable airplay on the radio.

2009–2010: El Patrón

El Patrón is Tito El Bambino's third solo CD. The hit, "Vamos Pa'l Agua", was released before the CD to let fans know what lay ahead, but was ultimately not included in the album. The CD includes his fellow reggaeton artists Zion y Lennox and Plan B. Some chart toppers of this album include "El Amor" and "Under", which also have chart topping videos. "El Amor" was officially remixed four times with four different artists: Yolandita Monge, Jenni Rivera, Chiky Flow, and La India.[ citation needed ]

In February 2011, Tito El Bambino's label, On Fire Music approached producer duo group GrüvStar [2] to create the official dance remix of the song "Llueve El Amor" to support the record during mix show play at Latin Urban radio stations.
