Cornejo’s new album ‘MIRADA’ will be released on July 18 via Zaragoza Records / Interscope Records. “My new album represents an exciting evolution, and growth of my musical journey,” Cornejo says. “Each track has a blend of my signature style but with a fresh sound that pushes the boundaries of my art.”

Ivan recently co-headlined the Sueños Festival in Chicago. His upcoming festival performances include Milwaukee Summerfest on July 6 and Quebec City’s Festival d’ete on July 13.

Earlier this year, Ivan performed a record-breaking show in front of 72,000 people at a sold-out Rodeo Houston stadium show. The experience was daunting for the introspective then 19 year-old artist who only a couple of years ago was busy on TikTok, posting his confessional songs about having his heart broken in middle school. But the power of his own music – and a devoted fan base – carried him along during the biggest show of his career so far.

“That was the most shaky I’ve ever been during a show,” Cornejo says from his home in Riverside, California – the same place where he taught himself to play the guitar at age 8 watching YouTube videos. “It was a great feeling, but I could also hear my heart pounding. People often ask me if I get nervous onstage. And I do. I feel like, oh shit, this is really happening – but in a super exciting way.”

Cornejo has plenty of reasons to be excited about. His dreamy music – a sophisticated combination of sad sierreño roots and hazy, alternative-rock vibes – resonates with young listeners who identify with his bicultural sensibility, quiet demeanor and the need to let the songs speak for themselves. With over 1.6 billion combined streams, he is currently a leading música mexicana artist in the U.S., and top 10 in the overall Latin market.

On his latest single, “Baby Please,” he voices out a desperate plea for a second chance in love, evoking the lost kisses of a happier past as pieces of his soul that were robbed away from him and cannot be reclaimed. In a different context, those lyrics could easily sound melodramatic. But Cornejo’s musical instincts are mature beyond his age. The raspy quality of his voice adds a patina of disarming sincerity and grit, surrounded by sobering guitar riffs, an elegant violin line, minimal bass and percussion. He paints cinematic images in smoky chiaroscuro tones, and the sonic backdrop beautifully contains the passion conveyed with such brutal honesty in the lyrics. Fittingly, the visual for “Baby Please” finds him performing the song on a lonely stage, surrounded by darkness.

2023 marked a bevy of career-defining milestones including a 46-show tour with performances at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. Ivan shattered the record for most tickets ever sold by a Latin artist (dethroning a record held by Vicente Fernandez) at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, CA. Last year, the California singer-songwriter also released the groundbreaking singles “Aquí Te Espero” (85+ Million streams) and “Donde Estas” (60+ Million streams) and signed with Interscope Records.
