Influenced by Justin Bieber’s superstardom, Bryson Tiller’s dynamic R&B/soul, and Shawn Mendes’s songwriting abilities, D. Muñoz hit the studio and recorded his first single, “Wait,” a fusion of R&B, dancehall, and trap, which he released independently in 2017. He followed that up with “Love Me,” a tender R&B song about missing an ex. What followed was a deep dive into his relationship with his “Love Me” muse. The result was the lovesick, R&B/soul-heavy EP Until Next Time, an effort that peaked on the iTunes R&B and Soul chart at No. 7. When the video for “Love Me,” which has garnered over 4.6 million views, dropped in February 2018, Muñoz cemented his place in the industry as the budding heartthrob of Colombian and Dominican descent with impeccable vocal range and a sweet, slick inclination.
Muñoz signed to Triangle Offense/Epic Records in April of 2018 and is now preparing for the release of his first major label EP, Moments, due out in early 2020. Focusing on “the moments that define us and make us grow,” says Muñoz, the EP explores lust, longing, and loneliness, and sees production from Jorgen Odegard (Pink, Imagine Dragons).
