Naldo worked with Dragon on refining his sound and provided Dragon with production opportunities. He also allowed Dragon to go on tour with the group and provided Dragon with features on albums such as “Los Duros Del Reggaeton”, where Dragon scored his first hit “Muerdela”.

With parenthood on hand, Dragon decided to return to music at a later date and decided to move his family away from the Island of Puerto Rico for greater opportunities.

Soon after, Dragon began work on his first solo album. Today, Dragon remains grateful for all the opportunities given to him and acknowledges that he is nothing without the support of his public and fans.
