Karol G to Make Acting Debut on Netflix Series

Karol G is ready to make her acting debut…

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 https://www.hispanicallyyours.com/gay-dating-sites-online/. 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 dating a nigerian woman 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.

Feid to Serve as Opening Act on Karol G’s Bichota Tour

Feid is hittin’ the road with his Colombian compatriot…

The 29-year-old Colombian singer and songwriter will serve as the opening act for Karol G, as she hits the road for her first-ever U.S. headlining Bichota Tour, named after her unapologetic and empowering single.

“I was looking for an artist that I listen to a lot and that the exposure of my tour can also be a plus in their career,” Karol, who’s making the rounds with her single “Sejodioto,” tells Billboard in a statement. “Besides, I love the fact that he’s from my country and my city, Medellin! I want to show the world where we come from. I’m very grateful for Feid and his team for joining this wonderful experience that will start soon.”

Feid, a Latin Grammy-nominated artist, is currently making the rounds with his fourth studio album Inter Shibuya – La Mafia. He’s known for penning hits for J Balvin and collaborating with countless artists, including Maluma and Sech.

“For a lot of people, I’m still a new artist and I want to find my space in reggaeton,” he previously told Billboard. “I don’t try to be like any other artist. I feel that I have a certain flow that characterizes my music.”

Now, Feid will take his unique flow and edgy reggaeton on the monthlong Bichota tour, kicking off on October 20 in Denver’s Mission Ballroom with pit stops in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, and Miami before wrapping up on November 27 in San Juan’s Coliseo de Puerto Rico.

“For me, it is going to be a huge door that is going to open. Ever since I began making music, for me, it is a dream to be able to tour in the USA and that Karol has given me the opportunity to accompany her by opening the shows is super important,” Feid tells Billboard. “I am very grateful to her and her entire team for the great opportunity they are giving me. We are preparing a very special show for this occasion and we are already dreaming of our own tour.”

Karol G’s “El Makinon,” Featuring Mariah Angeliq, Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

Karol G’s winning streak continues…

The 30-year-old Colombian singer’s collaboration with Mariah Angeliq, “El Makinon,” rises from No. 7 to No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart dated June 5.

Karol G & Mariah Angelique

The rise to the summit comes a week after Karol G’s first live performance at the Billboard Music Awards on May 23, and her win for Top Latin Female Artist. She performed a medley of the tune and “Bichota” on the NBC broadcast.

The track rises with a 26% boost in audience impressions, to 8.7 million, earned in the week ending on May 30, according to MRC Data. That’s a 1.8 million gain from the previous week. “El Makinon” marks Karol G’s 11th Latin Airplay No. 1. Mariah Angeliq claims her first on any Billboard chart.

“El Makinon” is the fifth consecutive track from KG0516 (Karol’s first Top Latin Albums No. 1 debut) to crown Latin Airplay: “Tusa” with Nicki Minaj, “Ay, Dios Mio!,” “Bichota” and “Location” with Anuel AA and J Balvin all ruled for at least one week. Among women, she holds the record for the most leaders on the chart from the same album.

Beyond its Latin Airplay coronation, “El Makinon” takes the Greatest Gainer/Airplay honor on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, digital sales, and streaming data, with a 7-6 lift.

It’s only the third female pairing to rule since the chart’s inception in 1994.

Bad Bunny: The Top Latinx Winner at the Billboard Music Awards

Bad Bunny is celebrating a memorable night…

The 27-year-old Puerto Rican superstar took home four awards at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, the most of any Latinx artist.

Bad Bunny collected the awards Top Latin Artist, Top Latin Male Artist, Top Latin Song (“Dákiti“) and Top Latin Album (YHLQMDLG).

Bad Bunny, who performed “Te Deseo Lo Mejor” after accepting his Top Latin Artist award, presented by Lena Waithe, holds the record for the most top 40 hits on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart with 104. He also holds the record for the most hits in total on that chart: 111. His chart-topping YHLQMDLG won him his first Grammy on March 14, when it was named Best Latin Pop or Urban Album.

In the Top Latin Artist category at the BBMAs, Bad Bunny was up against Anuel AA, J Balvin, Maluma and Ozuna.

“I share this [award] with all of my colleagues nominated who are doing big things for the genre,” he said in Spanish during his speech.

El Conejo Malo wasn’t the only one representing Latin music at the BBMAs. Colombian hitmaker Karol G also took center stage performing “Bichota” and “El Makinon” after being announced winner of the Top Latin Female Artist award, beating out Becky G and Rosalía.

Karol G, whose most recent album KG0516 debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, becoming her first No. 1 on that list, has amassed 25 hits on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, including three No. 1s. She has had 10 No. 1s on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

She performed a medley of her hits “Bichota” and “El Makinon,” both from her latest album KG0516. She also flaunted her “next level” dance moves that she rehearsed “very hard” for, as she told Billboard’s Leila Cobo.

“I’m happy and I’m nervous,” she said ahead of her big night. “A lot of power…with this performance, I want to express that I feel like a woman and a business girl. I feel so happy and grateful for everything that’s happening in my career and my life, and to have the opportunity to inspire girls all over the world.”

Finally, representing the Regional Mexican realm, Eslabon Armado took home the Top Latin Duo/Group award. The teenage trio was up against Banda MS de Sergio Lizárraga and Los Dos Carnales in that category.

Known for their sierreño ballads, Eslabon Armado – comprised of brothers Pedro (lead vocalist) and Brian Tovar (bass and bajoloche), along with friend Gabriel Hidalgo (harmony and background vocals) – scored three consecutive chart-topping albums in 2020: Tu Veneno MortalVibras de Noche and Corta Venas.

“Always grateful to God, our parents, our label and our fans,” Eslabon Armado posted on their social media after they won the award. “This award is for all of you.”

In addition to topping the Billboard 200, Bad Bunny has also reached No. 1 on Billboards other flagship, all-genre chart, the Billboard Hot 100. He topped that chart with “I Like It,” his 2018 collab with Cardi B and J Balvin.

But Bad Bunny won’t be the only Latin artist to perform…

Karol G will take the stage for a special medley of her hits “Bichota” and “El Makinon.”

Karol G has amassed 25 hits on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, including three No. 1s. She has had 10 No. 1s on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

Karol G Teams Up with Anuel AA & J Balvin for Country-Tinged Track “Location”

Karol G’s gone country…

The 30-year-old Colombian singer has joined voices with Anuel AA and J Balvin for “Location,” a country-tinged track that deftly fuses reggaetón and hip-hop.

Karol G

On “Location” — which starts off country but quickly picks up speed and transitions into an irresistible reggaeton track — Karol G is feeling cheeky, asking her crush to send his location because “hoy tengo mala intencion,” she confesses.

Produced by Ovy on the Drums, “Location” follows Karol G’s chart-topping hit “Bichota,” which also has a Western vibe to it.

“I like to give my fans a unique experience with every single release, both musically and visually,” Karol G said about “Location.” “It’s a very special song for me because I was able to collaborate with artists that I admire and we were able to fuse reggaeton/hip-hop/country influences into an amazing song and video filled with energy and rodeo vibes!”
