Karol G is back at the (tiny) desk 

The 32-year-old Colombian superstar returned to NPR’s headquarters for her second “Tiny Desk Concert,” which premiered on Monday, May 15.

Karol GThe 17-minute acoustic performance, where she was accompanied by an all-girl music ensemble, included new versions of four tracks from her Billboard history-making album Mañana Será Bonito. She kicked it off the mini-set with the ultra-personal “Carolina.”

“I have to say that I’m super proud of them because this show is special,” she said of the talented musicians. “It’s the first time after eight years that I never rehearse with my In-Ears. I forgot how cool it feels. I feel like I’m in my home, with my people, drinking wine […] but now, let’s bring some Mexican vibes to this place!” she added before performing her heartfelt Banda track “Gucci Los Paños.”

Rocking a trucker hat, a yellow jacket, and blue locks, the Colombian artist expressed “I don’t know why I’m so nervous,” she said. “The album is super new and this is the first time I’m singing some of the songs here, and they feel so good in this version.”

She then performed a sultry reggae version of her Quevedo-assisted “Pero Tú” and a heartfelt bossanova version of “Mercurio.”

“Tiny Desk, thanks for the opportunity, this is super great and it kind of takes us out of the routine of what we normally do,” she noted. “It was a pleasure for all those who are at home, to share this moment with you and to share it in this way that is so personal for many reasons.”


Karol made her NPR debut in 2021 for a “Tiny Desk Home Concert,” where she performed “Creeme,” “A Ella,” “200 Copas” with special guest Danny Felix, and “Contigo Voy a Muerte” with special guest Camilo.

Karol G took to social media to reveal the track list for the album, which will be home to 16 new songs including “Culpables” with Anuel AA, “Mi Cama (Remix)” with J Balvin and Nicky Jam, “Creeme” with Maluma, and her recent single “Punto G.”


Karol G’s new project represents a personal and professional milestone. 

“I worked with different producers from all genres, trying to bridge different styles of music, from urban to electronica to ballads,” she previously said in an interview with Ocean Drive magazine. “I put a lot of emphasis on the composition of the songs and the creative production. We finished it in Turks and Caicos because I wanted to capture the essence of the title. Imagine creating music in the middle of the sea. Spectacular!”

According to Karol G, “a percentage of the profits will go toward cleaning the ocean. It is our job to make a difference and leave the world a better place.”
