Young Miko; from tattoo parlour to Latin Music biggest stages

Puerto Rican rapper Young Miko has rapidly ascended in the Latin music scene, marked by her successful Trap Kitty world tour and Billboard-charting hits like “Dispo” and “Classy 101” with Feid. Breaking stereotypes with bold and raunchy lyrics, she embraces her identity as a queer woman, contributing to LGBTQ+ representation. The 24 year old artist, born María Victoria Ramírez de Arellano Cardona, began her journey with tattooing to fund her music dreams, eventually catching the attention of Wave Music Group. Her authenticity and unique style, blending trap, rap, and reggaetón, have resonated globally, earning her a devoted fan base called “Mikosexuals.” Collaborating with producers like Caleb Calloway, Miko’s sincerity remains a key factor in her success, exemplified by her debut album, “Trap Kitty,” and singles like “Riri” and “Wiggy.” As she reflects on her rapid rise, Miko expresses gratitude, growth, and anticipation for what lies ahead.

Miko’s meteoric rise from local sensation to captivating performer capable of holding her own beside a global superstar is a testament to her undeniable talent. In just over one year, Billboard‘s 2023 Latin Rookie of the Year has broken out of her native Puerto Rico’s música urbana scene, performing with heavyweights like Karol and Bad Bunny as well as headlining her own Trap Kitty world tour of nearly 50 cities across the Americas and Spain.

“I feel incredible — a world tour! At least this early in my career,” Miko says, still sounding awestruck.
