Chino Pacas, also known as Chinito Pacas, only 16 years old, is the one many are betting on to unseat Peso Pluma. Through TikTok, as a lucky shot, Chino Pacas uploaded a song to see the people’s response, but he never imagined that his first hit would come out of it.
Surely you have heard “El Gordo trae el mando” because it is the song that Cristian Humberto Avila Ortega, as is the name of Chino Pacas, managed to position alongside world-class singers.
And if it doesn’t ring a bell, here’s the most famous verse on TikTok.
“And all along the boulevard, with my compa Flaco rolling up my sleeves
A pair of huaraches, my cap on the side, down Zapata, el Gordo brings the controller
Throwing line with Manny and el Caña, a la orden pa’l desorden conectado”.“El gordo trae el mando”.
Who is Chino Pacas? He is already seen as the successor of Peso Pluma in the corridos tumbados.
If Peso Pluma – 23 years old – has managed to attract attention because of his young age and the success he has obtained. The same goes for Chino Pacas.
Although Chino Pacas is just starting in the music industry, he is already backed by the success of Fuerza Regida. He promises to be one of the greats in corridos tumbados, although he defines his style as corrido urbano.
Chino Pacas is Mexican, as he was born in Apaseo El Alto, Guanajuato, but at 12, he moved to the United States with his mother, “following the (American) dream.”
Chino Pacas worked in the construction field in Tampa, Florida, but previously in his native colonia in Mexico, he was part of the church choir.
Chino Pacas says that when he saw Natanael Cano, he liked his music and realized that this style was accepted, so he decided to experiment.
The singer of corridos tumbados wrote fifteen songs, and through TikTok -without a manager, representative, or record label- he uploaded “a random.”
There, “El Gordo trae el mando” hit as his first big song and the only one he uploaded to TikTok.
