We’re always on the lookout for the next artist who will win the title of El Headliner! But we don’t know who September’s El Headliner is going to be without the help of you, the fans!

“Two heads are better than one” wouldn’t be such a well known cliche if it wasn’t a little bit true. Take urban duo Hancel y RiGo, for example. If the pair went solo as originally intended, then who knows where they would be today. Fortunately, their partnership lead to some great music. In fact, their song “Mi Corazon” was good enough to beat out the rest of the competition in the “Tr3s Latin Music Channel”, which means that the pair share the title of August’s El Headliner! For their efforts, Hancel y RiGo have been rewarded with some killer publicity: editorial coverage across MTV Tr3s on Top 20, Music My Güey, Blogamole, and Descubre y Download, reaching millions of new eyes and ears.
Congratulations again to Hancel y RiGo! Check out the winning track “Mi Corazon” below.

After two months of heated competition, New York Latin urban artist Lokixximo is finally catching a break after being crowned the Grand Prize Winner of the Tr3s Dame Un Break Competition with his song Noche Europea,” featuring DJ Mesta. Growing up in the Bronx, Lokixximo teamed up with partner Jose Josexx to form the Lokiximo Boyz in 2005, and the Latin duo began establishing a name for themselves on the underground Latin scene. After appearing on various radio stations, Latin charts, and tours through the US and the Caribbean, founder Bonao took on the name ‘Lokixximo’ when parter Jose Josexx parted ways. Now, the club hit, ‘Noche Europea,’ has claimed victory over more than 200 formidable Latin artists with its unique style and catchy lyrics. Lokixximo will have the chance to film a music video created by a professional producer selected by Tr3s, receive a one-day recording session with a GRAMMY Award-winning producer, and will be awarded a cash prize of $2,500. Congratulations to Elshamusic, Lilo, Xcelencia, and Radial for finishing in the Top 5 finalists.
