SGZ Records (Univision)

Puerto Rican/Jamaican-descendant singer Huey Dunbar was discovered by tropical music arranger/producer Sergio George after performing in a talent contest.

During the following two years, the young artist honed his skills as he learned how to speak and sing in Spanish. Dunbar debuted as a backup singer for Yolandita Monge, participating in India’s 1994 Dicen Que Soy album, and singing along with Víctor Manuelle. In 1996, he joined tropical-club/dance act DLG (Dark Latin Groove), performing alongside James de Jesús and Wilfredo Crispin, also known as Fragancia, climbing to the top of the Latin charts with a song called "No Morirá." After issuing "Swing On" and the Grammy nominated "Gotcha," Huey’s solo debut, Yo Si Me Enamoré, was released in 2001, followed by his sophomore effort Music for My Peoples, in '03. Fast-forward, after a seven-year hiatus, and a new record deal, Dunbar is back with his self-titled third studio album Huey Dunbar IV, which debuted at No. 2 on Latin Billboard Charts.-
