Young Miko, without a doubt, has become one of the most important figures in today’s urban music scene, with a significant impact in the music industry. Ever since her song «Lisa» went viral on social media, her rise to fame has been unstoppable, and she keeps achieving more success. This year has been particularly great for her, with many live performances, like her outstanding show at the LOS40 Music Awards Santander 2023, where she performed «Classy 101» alongside Feid.

Her latest performance was last weekend at the Coca Cola Flow Fest, an urban music festival in Mexico City. Miko’s performance was a showstopper, igniting excitement in the audience and causing her fans to cheer passionately. 

‘The Miko Effect’

While it’s natural for all fans to get completely absorbed when they see their favorite artist performing live, something peculiar happened when Miko was singing. One person noticed that the Puerto Rican artist not only generated the typical excitement among her fans but also had them completely captivated, almost hypnotized, especially the women. This user shared a video on social media and called it ‘the Miko effect.’ 

With their eyes wide open, as if they wanted to capture every moment of the singer in their memories, and their mouths slightly agape in amazement, the girls in the video watched her with a love that only true fans possess. Which is completely understandable because Miko’s energy is something truly special and captivating. The comments on the video might have been different, but they all conveyed the same feeling:  

  • “The Young Miko effect 😍”  
  • “My expression when Young Miko performs for real:”  
  • “Young Miko is the only thing you’re good at in this world 😍”  
  • “My expression in every video of mine for you where Young Miko appears ✨😩”  
  • “I really want to experience the Miko effect in person 😞”  
  • “It’s just that Young Miko 🥴”

Miko at The Coca Cola Flow Fest

The singer took the stage in a denim outfit adorned with colorful embroidery and Japanese-inspired designs on the back of her jacket. Her hair was pulled back, and she held a microphone with an LGBT flag design. She performed some of her hit songs, including «Big Booty,» «Fina» (her collaboration with Bad Bunny), «Bi,» «8 AM,» and closed her set with «Chulo.» Wrapped in the LGBT flag, Miko said her goodbyes to the audience, leaving a lasting impression with her debut at Flow Fest. 

“I want to thank you for such a special night; this is the largest crowd I’ve ever performed for in my life, and it was right here in Mexico,” she later shared during the concert, receiving a thunderous applause before she sang «Classy 101,» her collab song with Feid.
