María Becerra

María Becerra

At just 21 years old, María is widely referred to as “a leading voice in Argentina‘s urban pop movement.”

María de los Ángeles Becerra was born in Quilmes, Buenos Aires, knowing from a young age she wanted to make music. At just seven years old, she started taking not only singing lessons, but musical comedy and interpretative dance classes, as well.

When she was 12, María began her career on Facebook, where she posted a five-minute-long parody monologue which received over one million views in just a few hours. This encouraged her to create a YouTube channel in 2015, which she would later use to post videos of her talking, singing, vlogging, and making dance tutorials. While she no longer posts videos there, her channel has nearly 3 million subscribers.

In September 2019, Becerra released her debut EP 222, which featured her fusing elements of urban pop and hip hop. In November, she released her single “High,” which would later be remixed by Tini and Lola Indigo, reaching the No. 2 position on the Billboard Argentina Hot 100.

In 2020, Becerra dominated the feature game, making her mark on multiple remixes including “En Tu Cuerpo” with Lyanno, Rauw Alejandro and Lenny Tavárez, “AYNEA” with FMK and Beret, and “Además de Mí” with Rusherking, Khea and Duki, Lit Killah and Tiago Pzk, which became Becerra‘s first number-one single on the Argentina Hot 100.

In 2020, María became the first Latin artist to be signed to the indie record label 300 Entertainment. In 2021, she released her second EP, Animal, Pt. 1 which included “Animal” with Cazzu and “Acaramelao”. Both singles became hits in Argentina, where they ended up peaked at No. 5 and No.7, respectively. This year, Becerra has continued to collaborate with big names, releasing “Mal Acostumbrao” with Mau y Ricky, “Wow Wow” with Becky G, and “Qué Más Pues?” with J Balvin.
