Karol G, an outstanding singer and songwriter, has become an undeniable reference in Latin music.
Years ago, she faced rejection from music industry executives when she decided to venture into reggaeton, a genre predominantly performed by men. However, her unwavering determination and passion for music allowed her to break down those barriers and establish herself as one of the most influential female artists in the urban genre today.
Her album “Mañana será bonito” has accumulated a series of major hits, including a collaboration with her compatriot Shakira on the song “TQG,” which reached the top of the Billboard Global 200 chart.
Karol G made history by becoming the first Latina artist to headline the renowned Lollapalooza music festival, recognized worldwide.
Additionally, she had the honor of contributing to the soundtrack of one of the most anticipated films of 2023, “Barbie,” with her song “WATATI.”
Recently, she released her album “Bichota Season,” which includes 10 notable songs, such as “Mi ex tenía razón.” This song has caused a great stir not only for its lyrics but also for the northern musical influence it presents, as well as Karol G’s choice to wear a t-shirt with the image of Selena, thus paying homage to the “Queen of Tex Mex.” “I would love to find the precise words that define what this ‘season’ means to me,” she expressed on her Instagram account. “Mañana Será Bonito – Part B – Perreo Season, Bellaqueo Season, and why not? Romantiqueo as well.”
Karol G continues to demonstrate her bravery and talent in the music industry, inspiring women and breaking stereotypes in a genre that used to be dominated by men. Her energy and determination have catapulted her to international stardom, and her legacy will endure in the history of Latin music.
