Welcome back to the Latin Connection, Billboard's weekly podcast of all things Latin music.

In this week's episode, we have a very special guest on the podcast: the one and only Draco Rosa. Just days before kicking off his Lo Sagrado y Lo Maldito Tour in the U.S., the Grammy- and Latin Grammy-winning artist visited Billboard's Los Angeles office to talk about his tour, beating cancer -- he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma back in 2011 -- and gives exclusive details about his upcoming album.

"I'm living to the fullest as much as I can. That wasn't always the mind-set, but I've had to learn the hard way ... I decided to pause on my album to go on tour because that's all that matters to me now. I've done good records, I've done a good job and have nothing to prove to anyone. But I'm at a place in my life where if I can play live, I'm going to go."

Listen to our Draco Rosa interview below and come back next week for a brand-new episode of the Latin Connection Podcast:
