Becky G – My Man

Today, global superstar Becky G releases new single “My Man” along with the music video via Kemosabe Records/RCA Records. The track, which was produced by Di Genius, was written by Becky alongside Di Genius, Elena Rose, Edgar Barrera, Fresh, Maurice “Verse” Simmonds, Janée “Jin Jin” Bennett and Jenni Rivera. 

Inspired by Jenni Rivera’s “La Gran Senora”, the song is a fun and flirty expression of female empowerment as it takes on the narrative of staying with your man through ups and downs, thick and thin. The video, which was shot at home and inspired by spending time nonstop with your partner during quarantine, features Becky alongside her boyfriend, LA Galaxy player Sebastian Lletget. It was directed by Pedro Paulo Araujo of 2 Wolves/SOTA. 

Becky G says, “I always loved the perspective Jenni Rivera sang from on “La Gran Señora” and thought that it was so different. It’s a unique perspective that is never really shared in songs, so I thought it would be dope to bring an up-beat 2020 Becky G flow to a concept story like that with my Spanglish style.”

“The music video is a true moment that has now been captured forever. This pandemic will be something Sebastian & I will never forget. Sharing a “fly on the wall” point of view to the silly and competitive side of us from behind closed doors and that people usually don’t get a chance to see, was so much fun. We really didn’t feel like we were shooting a video, we were just being us.”

Singer, songwriter and actress Becky G was born for the spotlight and her multifaceted career is shaping up to be nothing short of iconic. The 23-year-old global superstar’s achievements include two number one hits on the Billboard Latin Airplay Charts (“Mayores” & “Sin Pijama”), a starring role in “Power Rangers,” and guest-starring in Fox TV’s Emmy-winning “Empire” series. She won two 2018 Latin American Music Awards, for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Urban Song (for “Mayores”) and was awarded YouTube’s Diamond Play Button for surpassing 10 million followers on the platform. Becky G has toured alongside Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, J Balvin, Fifth Harmony and Jason Derulo and has recorded collabs with Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, Maluma, Anitta, Natti Natasha, ZAYN, Bad Bunny and CNCO, among others. 

Becky has been honored by the Latin Recording Academy as one of the Leading Ladies in Entertainment (2018) and by her home city of Inglewood, California for her contributions to the Hispanic community; she has been recognized as one of Rolling Stone’s “18 Teens Shaking Up Pop Culture” and one of Billboard’s “21 Under 21”. Becky recently garnered the Extraordinary Evolution Award at the 2019 Latin American Music Awards for her success as a young performer who has reached the pinnacle of success in a short period of time. Her debut album Mala Santa was released in October 2019 and has been certified 8X Platinum in the United States, Platinum in Spain and Gold in México. 

A few months ago Becky her track “They Ain’t Ready” along with a special T-shirt. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt went to the The Los Angeles Students In Need Charity.

Kim Viera “Here For Ya”

KIM VIERA RELEASES NEW SINGLE “HERE FOR YA” TODAY

Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Kim Viera releases her brand new single “Here For Ya” today in both English and Spanglish.

Listen to “Here For Ya”: HERE

The track is powered by a throwback beat and sultry production, building toward a seismic and soaring refrain carried by Kim’s powerhouse voice. The two versions in English and Spanglish speak to her worldwide appeal.

In many ways, Kim Viera was destined to merge cultures in her music. Growing up of Puerto Rican descent in an artist-friendly New York household, her parents both worked in the entertainment industry. Dad launched, owned, and operated a live production company, and Mom could be heard as a backup singer for Willie Colon, Ruben Bladés, and more. Yearly vacations in Puerto Rico represented that balance as the travel mixtape spanned Selena, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, La India, Sia, Brandy, and Whitney Houston. A vocal powerhouse, she made her introduction on viral hits alongside YouTube mega-star Kurt Schneider in between writing for superstars such as Lil Wayne. In 2016, she landed a major label deal with Republic Records and made waves by contributing “Tribe” to the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 3. This anthem quickly clocked 1.8 million Spotify streams. Along the way, she honed her “American Latina” style and set fire with her single “Como” feat. Daddy Yankee. It exploded as an international smash with 40.8 million cumulative streams and counting, while the music video surpassed 24 million views in under a year. Meanwhile, she garnered acclaim from Billboard and NPR who pegged it among “Our Favorite Latin Songs This Week,” upon release, setting the stage for her 2019 anthem “Here For Ya.”
