Arcangel went on to release his debut studio album, El Fenomeno, in late 2008. The album included songs that were produced in 2008, as well as the DJ Nelson produced "Chica Virtual", which was produced in 2007. Half of the album also included newly produced tracks, including "Pa' Que la Pases Bien" and "Por Amar a Ciegas", which went on to become successful airplay songs on American Latin Urban radio stations across the U.S. Also, in other countries as well as the U.S., Arcangel has achieved success very fast by the help of various artists such as De La Ghetto, Daddy Yankee, Zion & Lennox and much more.
