While the pandemic derailed touring plans, Walter Kolm, CEO of the artist management firm WK Entertainment—a roster highlighted by Carlos Vives, and cross-over sensation Maluma, Wisin, and CNCO, made a bold pandemic pivot that led to the launch of WK Records.
Today, his label celebrates “Fiel,” the clingy reggaetón hit by Wisin, Jhay Cortez, and Los Legendarios, one of the most streamed Latin songs in the world. It’s perched upon Spotify’s Global Top 200 chart—the list’s only Latin hit to crack the Top 10. It’s certified platinum in the United States, Spain, Chile, and Mexico, plus made Gold in Colombia, rippling through Latin America in the #1 seat on Spotify and Apple. It’s also the only song represented by a Latino-owned artist management firm and label to pierce the Top 10 frame of Spotify’s Global Top 200 Chart.
“Fiel’s” music video, which became the most-watched visual the day it premiered on YouTube, has over 60 million views. It’s a viral sensation on TikTok with over 2 million uploads and more than 300 million views. Also, it’s ranked Top 40 on Shazam’s worldwide chart and #1 for the platform in Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Chile, El Salvador, Venezuela, and Costa Rica.
The single was recorded in the mountains of Cayey, Puerto Rico, at Wisin’s record label’s studio, La Base Music, and was released via Walter Kolm’s WK Records in February.
