The band was doing pretty well - in 2011 they win a university competition, two years later they qualified for the final of the Spanish talent show ¡Tú sí que vales!. They also released two albums. However, the crucial moment for Alvaro was the departure from the band in 2014 and the start of a solo career. His debut single "El Mismo Sol" from 2015 appealed to listeners all over Europe, winning the top of many charts. In Poland it was the most played radio song. Even more successful was the album "Eterno Agosto" released a year later, which got triple platinum in Poland. It included a new version of "El Mismo Sol" recorded in a duet with a latino music diva, Jennifer Lopez, who suggested Soler cooperation. The re-edition of the album contained several new songs, including "Libre". Later, it was recorded in three language versions, also in the Polish/Spanish version with Monika Lewczuk. The year 2017 Alvaro Soler spent on the road - he played over 50 concerts all over Europe. For the last time Polish fans could watch him in Katowice on New Year's Eve.
