Khea is one of the biggest stars in the Argentine trap scene. Generally focusing on lyrical themes such as romance and sex, his songs mix pop, hip-hop, and reggaeton, and his vocals are closer to smooth singing than harder-edged rapping. By the time he turned 18 in 2018, he had scored several viral hits with singles such as "Loca" and "Vete."
Born in Uruguay but based in Buenos Aires, Khea began releasing songs in 2017, starting with "B.U.H.O" (featuring Duki and Klave). However, it was "Loca" (with Cazzu and Duki) that made him a major star, reaching over 100 million YouTube views within months. Soon after, Khea shared the stage with Daddy Yankee and Ozuna, and "Loca" was remixed by Bad Bunny, furthering the song's popularity. Khea continued touring and releasing singles such as "Calentita" (with Brytiago) and "M.I.A" (featuring Omar Varela) throughout 2018. His singles in 2019 included "Sola" (featuring Dayme y el High, Myke Towers, and Alex Rose), "Tengo 30" (featuring Duki, Cazzu, Neo Pistea, and Tali Goya), and "Hot Girl Bummer" (with blackbear). In spring 2020, Khea released the mixtape Trapicheo and collaborated with OneRepublic on "Better Days." ~ Paul Simpson
