Claudio grew up in Miami and is half-Cuban and half-Puerto Rican. She would later move to Los Angeles where she began her music career in earnest. She first began recording and releasing video covers on Twitter and YouTube before transitioning to original tracks which she released on SoundCloud. Over the course of 2016, Claudio released several singles, including "Runnin' Thru Lovers," "Orion's Belt," and Confidently Lost. She was also featured on Duckwrth's single titled "I'm Dead" from his album I'm Uugly.

These songs would form part of her EP, Confidently Lost which she originally released independently on SoundCloud. The EP received a wide release in March 2017 via SC Entertainment. In May 2017, she released a single, "Unravel Me," off of an upcoming project due to be released later in 2017. The song would go on to peak at #22 on the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart. She released another single for that project entitled, "Belong to You," in July 2017 which peaked at #2 on the same chart.

It was announced in August 2017 that Claudio would be touring North America with 6lack on his Free 6lack Tour.

On October 5, 2017, Claudio's debut full-length digital mixtape, About Time, was officially released. The mixtape is supported by the singles "Unravel Me" and "Belong to You". From October through November 2017, Apple Music promoted Claudio as their Up Next artist, a series that focuses on breakthrough artists by documenting their journey, inspiration and influences through exclusive interviews, live performances and a mini-documentary.
