Karol G

‘La Bichota’ continues making history with her music

SEPTEMBER 28, 2023 12:20 PM EDT

Karol G has proven that no dream is impossible to fulfill. The Colombian singer made one of her greatest aspirations come true by collaborating with the most renowned female star from her beloved country: Shakira. The Medellín-born singer premiered “Mañana Será Bonito” in February of this year, her fourth studio album, a project crowned by “TQG,” her duet with the Barranquilla artist. Yet, this accomplishment merely scratches the surface of the successful journey Carolina Giraldo Navarro —her birth name— has accumulated in recent years. Her hard work and dedication have earned her international recognition as one of the most important figures in reggaeton and trap music.

The singer always had a clear vision that her future was in music. In fact, she focused her university studies in Antioquia following this path, before starting her professional career. After she had been working in the industry for a few years, her collaboration with Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny on “Ahora Me Llama” (Unstoppable, 2017) contributed to catapulting her career.

In Ocean (2019), her second studio album, she worked alongside her fellow Colombian Maluma, as well as with Anuel AA, who was her partner at that time. In addition to her success with those hits, she garnered further achievements in 2021 following the release of KG0516, a record that included duets with Nicki Minaj, Camilo, Nathy Peluso, J Balvin, Ozuna, and Ivy Queen.

In 2023, she released her latest album titled “Mañana Será Bonito,” which she had previously given a sneak peek of with a selection of singles that were warmly embraced by her fan base. Some of these singles include “Provenza,” “Cairo,” and “Gatúbela,” to mention just a few. Then, last June, she dropped the song “Watati,” as part of the soundtrack of the highly anticipated film “Barbie,” starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

Adding to the long list of awards she has accumulated (including two Latin GRAMMYs: Best Urban Artist in 2018 and Best Reggaetón Performance for “Bichota” in 2021), in March of this year, she became the first Latina to headline the Lollapalooza festival, which took place in August. Furthermore, with “Mañana Será Bonito,” she became the first singer to top the Billboard 200 chart with an album entirely in Spanish. Today, the sky is the limit for Karol G, as she has realized every singer’s dreams and still has much ahead of her.
