On XAVI and His Hit Song ‘La Diabla’

Credit: Billboard

Upon his release back in November 2023, the Spanish artist XAVI has become a chart-topper artist ever since. His chart-topping track, “La Diabla,” is a song about falling in love with a person with a dark side. The music video says it all as the singer is enjoying a university party at home. He meets a young woman he calls “the devil,” given his instant liking to her. So far, the song has achieved tremendous success, playing on the global YouTube chart and surpassing The Devil’s Spotify Global chart with four million daily listens. And of course, surpassing Tate McRae’s “Greedy.”

Who is XAVI?

XAVI is a Mexican-American singer-songwriter who has made a name for himself since “La Diabla” and his other hit, “La Victim.” He started playing songs on various music platforms when he was a teenager, releasing his first single, “Vete Ya,” in 2020. He was only 16 years old! Commenting about how he felt when “La Diabla” entered Billboard’s Global Top last December, the singer told WEBC Radio, “Seeing the artists and songs that are in the top 10 makes me feel very honored. I am also very grateful to the team and all the fans who have supported the song. I feel truly blessed.”

Given the popularity of “La Diabla,” this is the fourth time a song by a Mexican artist has reached Spotify’s global chart. One of the other songs is Eslabón Armado and Peso Pluma’s “Ella Baila Sola.” Grupo Frontera and Bad Bunny’s “UN 100xto,” as well as Pluma’s music session with DJ Bizzarrap, also reached the global charts. The song has also gone viral on TikTok and sits at number five on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs Chart. XAVI himself makes 17 million listeners monthly on Spotify. Though a world-record singer for his age, he still has a long way to go.
