"Celebrating Life" was the second single (he would include them both on Part 1, his first studio album). He was nominated for Best Spanish New Artist on the 2012 edition of Los Premios 40 Principales, losing out to Auryn.
Xuso served as the warm-up act for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez and he has also participated in the third season of Spanish TV show Tu cara me suena (Your Face Sounds Familiar), where famous artists have to impersante iconic singers on stage.
On 19 May 2015, Xuso releaded his second studio album, Vuela.
