Amara La Negra is ready for a little love… and hip hop.
The 26-year-old Dominican-American artist and Billboard’s Artist on the Rise last month is preparing to make her debut on VH1’s reality series Love & Hip Hop Miami.
La Negra, the daughter of a single mother who immigrated to Miami, is hoping to cross over into the American market while showing Afro-Latinas that it’s possible.
Being a part of a Latin community that rarely gets recognition and representation frustrates La Negra because “[Afro-Latinos have] been here and no one has really spoken about us.”
But that’s all about to change when La Negra makes her Love & Hip Hop debut. She’ll co-star in alongside rappers Trina, Trick Daddy and Gunplay
Love & Hip Hop Miami premieres on VH1 on January 1st at 9/8c.
