Austin Santos, aka Arcangel, was born in New York on December 23, 1985. Honoring his Puerto Rican-Dominican descent, he moved to Puerto Rico in 1999 to devote himself to Reggaeton. While being there, he formed a duo with De la Ghetto (signed under the record label Baby Records) with whom he obtained a certain popularity in the United States and Puerto Rico.
In 2007, Arcangel started his solo career by working on a single with DJ Nelson, considered the godfather of Reggaeton. The song, "Chica Virtual", was featured on Nelson's compilation album "Flow La Discoteka 2" and became popular in urban radios. Soon enough, Arcangel had become the most popular artist among Reggaeton fans in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
In 2012, he signed with Pina Records and was featured in the compilation album "La Fórmula". In 2013, he released his second studio album: "Sentimiento, Elegancia y Maldad", which included collaborations with Daddy Yankee, De La Ghetto and Ñengo Flow. The album became #1 on iTunes pre-sales.
In 2015, Arcangel released his most recent album, "Los Favoritos", a collaboration with DJ Luian, which features Farruko, Ñengo Flow, Alexio, Pusho, Nicky Jam, J Balvin, Wisin, De La Ghetto, Cosculluela, Maluma, Zion y Lennox, J Alvarez, Jory Boy, among others. This album has produced the hits "50 Sombras de Austin" and "Pa'l Muro". More recently, Arcangel released three new singles: "Más Que Ayer", with De La Ghetto, "Me Acostumbré", featuring Bad Bunny, and "Po' Encima", featuring Bryant Myers.
