While his time on “Objetivo Fama”came to an end, LEYO’s career was just beginning. With his novella star looks, infectious laugh, and outgoing personality, LEYO became a regular correspondent for “Sin Editar,” and a favorite TV personality in Puerto Rico.

In 2015, LEYO’s song “Vete Con El”was featured on Hulu’s hit show “East Los High,”produced by Jennifer Lopez longtime producer Cory Rooney, where he also made a guest appearance. He also partnered with Ford Motors and BYG Music to in a campaign focused on emerging Latin Artists.
