I’m not gonna lie. I just discovered 15 year old Mexican American Becky G – as in G for Gomez – myself. Although not to be confused with that other Latina teen by the same last name. Becky G. if you are not familiar is an up and coming Latina rapper-singer-songwriter from Inglewood, California who until not too long ago was merely another hopeful musician sharing her talents on YouTube with the world. That was long before she was discovered by producer Dr. Luke who’s worked with the likes of Ke$ha, Kelly Clarkson and Pink, or before Simon Cowell called her a “star in the making” in a tweet.
Her music is pretty infectious and fun. A lot of it she has written herself. She’s worked with Cher Lloyd, Cody Simpson, will.i.am, and opened for Justin Beiber, on part of his US tour. Now this mexicana is working on her own debut album to be released later this year and featuring none other than La Diva Del Bronx, JLO herself on her first single and video.
Here’s a little taste of what you might expect from that album. I’m really digging the Turn The Music Up lyrics. ¡Ajua!
