It's hard not to sway to the bilingual dream pop of Cuco. His lo-fi lullabies are infectious; "Lo Que Siento," his most popular single, has more than 51 million streams on Spotify. But while his music is decidedly chill, this Hawthorne, California–based solo artist has been down a tumultuous path producing his first album, Para Mi, out July 26. Last October, Cuco and his band were involved in a terrible car accident that wiped out most of the album's material. But now, after recovering, the 21-year-old is one of the most sought after rising artists, recently the subject of a bidding war that culminated with Interscope—the record label that's been home to Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, and Lana Del Rey, among many others—buying him out for seven figures. SEVEN! His brokenhearted love songs are about to be everywhere. I'm not mad about it.

Cuco performs at at Capitol Hill Block Party 2019 Sunday, 9–10 pm, on the Vera Stage. Some media below.
