Yahritza y Su Esencia
What started as a wide-eyed teen dream has now become a cultural phenomenon. When Yakima, Washington singer/songwriter Yahritza Martínez began uploading videos of the music she made with her two brothers, she never imagined that international fame would find her at only 15 years of age.

And yet, her newly created band – Yahritza y su Esencia – is quickly becoming the revelation of the year in the Mexican genre. After being discovered on TikTok by Lumbre Music, Yahritza’s first single, the soulful “Soy El Único,” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, hitting No. 20 on the general Hot 100 Chart, making her the youngest Latin performer to enter the all-genre tally.

“Soy El Único” broke the record for the highest Música Mexicana song debut on Apple Music worldwide – as well as the highest Latin female-led song debut. In addition, it was the fastest ever Música Mexicana song to reach 100,000 Shazams - doing so in seven days – and was also the genre’s most Shazamed track in a single day, globally, on March 25.
