Sensato Is Back! Urban Superstar Shares Exclusive Details Of His Health, Life, Music [INTERVIEW]

After a short, but worrying pause, Sensato recovered satisfactorily and promises to return stronger and stay healthy. The Dominican artist, best known for his hit tune "Watagatapitusberry" and most recently on Pibull's "El Taxi," was hospitalized in his hometown of New York due to a health condition that has haunted him since he was a teen.

After six months of rest, the urban genre star is promoting the new video of the song "Gloria a Dios" ("Glory to God") released in 2016, featuring Poeta Callejero and LD Legendary. During the four-minute Hip-hop/rap song, Sensato thanks God for the opportunity to stay alive. 

"Amen, amen I feel like a Christian, today I am healthy but yesterday I was going to be eaten by the worms," the global sensation begins singing. "God gave me a hand, I left everything in his hands, and heaven sent a surgeon and look at me alive and healthy," sings Sensato with a smile on his face. 

The Dominican rapper from the Bronx includes in the song the unique style that characterizes him and that has revolutionized the Latin Urban industry.

"'Gloria a Dios' is a song that I dedicate to God for giving me another opportunity and saving me from what I just went through, a liver transplant," says Sensato in his interview via Facebook Live for Latin Times. "I wanted to do it to give all the glory to Him, to thank Him, and also to all my fans, to all who prayed for me."

Sensato first garnered international recognition in 2010 with the smash hit “Watagatapitusberry.” The “Berry Phenomenon” caught the eye of Pitbull and Lil Jon, who decided to make the official remix of the song and the video, blowing up the track and establishing it a bonafide worldwide phenomenon. Latin Times asked the rapper what differences exist between Sensato from "Watagatapitusberry" and Sensato from "Gloria a Dios:" "The Watagatapitusberry Sensato is me, with my madness, different music, and versatility," he says. "But Gloria a Dios is a more serious song. That's something that characterizes me, I can do a party song and also do something with a more serious theme."

In 2015, the collaboration between Sensato, Pitbull and Osmani García blew up the charts. The release of the song and video of the massive worldwide hit “El Taxi,” surpassed the 627 million views on YouTube. After that, Sensato headlined his own World Tour throughout Latin America, the United States and Europe; including stops in Spain, France, Switzerland, Portugal, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, among other countries. 

The rapper says that more music will be coming soon, along with more collaborations and viral songs. "For the next 10 years I visualize myself taking my career to another level, continuing to rise and making collaborations with more successful topics."
