Karol G to Make Acting Debut on Netflix Series

The 30-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer will be starring soon in a Netflix series, she revealed a day after winning a Latin Grammy for best reggaeton performance for “Bichota.”

“I have a lot of things that I want to do in my life,” she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. “I want to push myself as a woman and see how far I can go in everything.”

During the interview, Karol G teased her forthcoming onscreen venture.

“I’m going to act,” she spilled. “I have a surprise for my people in January. I’m going to start shooting a series for Netflix. It’s not about my life. I’m acting. I have a character, so I’m preparing myself for that.”

She’s already hired an acting coach and enrolled in business classes because she thinks of herself as not just an artist, but a brand. 

“Artists aren’t really idols anymore,” she previously said to Billboard for its spark dating reviews in September. “Now it’s all about moments. If your song is a hit, they’ll talk about you, but because the industry is so saturated, they’ll forget about you when a new artist comes along. Selena died more than 20 years ago, but her albums are still charting, she’s still getting awards. That’s a legacy. My goal now is to create a product that will connect with many people and for people to remember me.”

Karol’s new Latin Grammy for best reggaeton performance is her second award from the Latin Recording Academy, after taking home best new artist in 2018.
