Lucky

An eclectic blend of salsa booming along the sidewalks and hip-hop ridden boom boxes gave rise to Urban Merengue’s newest sensation. Born and bred in Washington Heights, New York, Felipe Fernandez became familiar with the importance of hard work and persistence growing up with a single mother in a neighborhood filled with people trying to survive day by day. His introduction to the music industry certainly didn’t arrive by chance, rather because of his unrelenting “journey toward the top.” Felipe considers himself to be one of the “lucky” ones.

Felipe is known artistically as Lucky Reyes because of the “luck” he’s had in life. Moreover, in tribute to his mother he decided to use his mother’s last name. Creativity has always been the staple of Lucky’s career, allowing him to ensue his musical work at home. He built a studio where he played with different beats and began creating musical fusions at a time where sounds were better left to be homogeneous. He simultaneously graduated from The School of Audio Engineering (SAE) in New York. The unique sounds allowed him to meet Raul Acosta, from the popular merengue group “Oro solido.” Acosta encouraged Lucky to combine his unique sound with his clever choice of words and rap in Spanish. The idea paved the way to a world that catapulted him to the music industry.

Lucky has learned the different dimensions of the performing arts without cutting any corners. He’s opened for various artists in both the Dominican Republic and his native New York, including Tego Caleron, Jowell y Randy, Toby Love, Don Miguelo and his good friends Oro Solido. He also participated in an important showcase for one of NYC’s most popular radio stations, as well as the internationally recognized New York City marathon a year later.  

Hard work, not luck, continues to be the protagonist in Lucky’s life where now he’s working in his debut album “El más dichoso” with his first single “Mujere Ajena,” which is currently being promoted in the Dominican Republic and in the United States. The song circumvents around a man who falls for a woman who already has a love, involving him in a complex triangular affair. This is Lucky’s first album distributed under the label Young Boss Entertainment, founded by Christopher Ruiz, who was an intricate part of the Chosen Few Movement and its success. This dynamic young man has come to his own in the business industry in his own right, after helping find and develop Fuego, also featured in “El más dichoso.” The album also includes a remake of the popular song “Bidi bidi bam bam” in honor of Selena featuring the king of urban merengue, Omega. “It’s a long journey, but it’s all worth it at the end,” said Lucky. An impressive and unique approach to music makes this versatile rapper/singer/producer the music world’s best revelation.
