A week before his 18th birthday, he issued the full-length Dañado; it topped genre charts during its first week of release.


An adept guitarist who taught himself to play at age seven, Cornejo began jamming with older friends at 14. They praised his playing and singing acumen and encouraged him to develop his skills further. He did. At 15 he began posting video requintos (guitar instrumentals) covering songs by his favorite artists on TikTok. They registered millions of views and drew the attention of the music industry from all over the world. 


"Noche de Relajo" appeared in late 2020, and registered on streaming charts. "Llamas Perdidas" followed in June 2021, just after his 17th birthday. In the meantime, his performance videos began to score major notice on YouTube, garnering millions of views. In late July, Cornejo issued the single and video for "Corazón Frío" and in October he released the eight-song album Alma Vacía; it rocketed to number two on the music industry's Regional Mexican charts. He followed it with the Top Ten single "El Greñas Mentado."


In February 2022, Cornejo released the single "Perro Abandonado," a corrido of insufferable heartbreak. Two weeks later, he released "Triste" , a duet with . In June, a week before his 18th birthday, Cornejo released the romantic, ballad-centric Dañado, another seven-track album. It rocketed to the Top of the Regional Mexican Albums chart as well as streaming, debuted at number four at Top Latin Albums, and cracked the Top 200, entering at number 149 (unusually high for a Regional Mexican album). 


In early 2023, Cornejo’s US “DAÑADO TOUR”' which was a very intimate and one of a kind opportunity to connect with his fans for the first time, completely sold out during the presale. He also released the deluxe version of “Dañado” which included three new songs “La Última Vez”, “Tatuajes” and “Ya Te Perdi”. 


Ivan’s budding career continues to expand, currently the second most consumed Regional Mexican artist in the US and top 10 overall Latin in the US. He has reached over 1.1 billion combined streams,notably one of the most nominated artists at his year’s Premio Lo Nuestro with 6 nominations and winning “Debut Artist of The Year” and “Regional Mexican Album Of The Year” at the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards, cementing his status as one of music’s most promising new generation of stars. He is gearing up to hit the road this Summer/ Fall on his TERAPIA TOUR which will include bigger venues and with stops in 31 cities.
