Rosalíais hittin’ the fest…
The 26-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter is set to take part in the 2020 LatinFest+, which is produced by Billboardand Telemundo.
Hailed as one the breakthrough artists of the world last year, Rosalía was the only newcomer to secure a spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Latin Artistschart and one of only six female acts to claim a spot on the 50-deep male predominant list. She has steadily populated the Latin charts captivating the industry with her flamenco genre-bending sonority and stylistic musical collision making her a trailblazer of the genre.
Her second-studio album, the flamenco-pop-urban tinged El Mal Quererdebuted at No. 10 on the Top Latin Albumschart and Rosalía has claimed four titles on the Hot Latin Songs chart, including “Con Altura,” with J Balvinand El Guincho, which peaked at No. 13 and won best urban song at the 2019 Latin Grammyawards.
Formerly known as Billboard Latin Music Week, the now substantially bigger weeklong event and panel series will unite Latin’s top artists, including Los Tigres del Norte, Ozunaand J Balvin, to celebrate Hispanic music and entertainment at large.
The inaugural Latinfest+ also marks the 30th anniversary of Billboard’s Latin Music Conference, the longest-running and biggest Latin music gathering in the world.
Latinfest+ will be an immersive, weeklong experience for the Latin entertainment industry, artists, executives and fans and will include superstar conversations, industry panels and workshops, celebrity fireside chats, live concerts, fan experiences and live activations of some of Billboard’s most celebrated franchises, including On the Riseand Growing Up Latino.
The full-run week of activities culminates with the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which will air live April 23 on Telemundo. Finalists for the awards will be announced in February.
