In the early '90s, the singer/songwriter, producer, and arranger joined Rockabanda, deciding to start his solo career in 1995, recording El Hombre Merengue, getting his song "Cachamba" topping the most important Latin charts. In 1997, Kinito Méndez made El Decreto, working on Barrio Boyzz' Ven A Mi that same year.
