The MuseBox today announced the release of “Low,” the culturally diverse and musically captivating new single from buzzing Toronto rapper Leondro. An intriguing mix of African congos and Caribbean reggaeton, Leondro’s “Low” represents a brand new sound that features a unique blend of hip-hop and dance. The release of “Low” marks Leondro’s continued rise within the hip-hop community, a prospect deemed unlikely following several adolescent run-ins with the law.
Leondro was born in Toronto in 1988. He was the youngest of three children raised in social housing in West End Toronto. His single mother worked three jobs to support her children. When Leondro was five years old, his mother gave him a life-altering gift that would spur his love for music: a Karaoke machine with a microphone.
