Rauw Alejandro, Mariah Angeliq and Sech came together virtually via Twitter Spaces on Thursday (May 13) for a Road to the Billboard Music Awards conversation on how reggaeton has helped popularize Latin music in the U.S. and globally, the importance of collaborations in the Latin space and social responsibility.
Hosted by Leila Cobo, Billboard's VP/Latin industry lead, the three artists kicked off the candid conversation talking about the projects they're currently working on. Both Alejandro and Angeliq are in the studio adding the last touches to their forthcoming albums. "Albums are very special for me," said Alejandro, while offering some advice to Angeliq, who will drop her debut set this year. "Take your time and if you like it, that's all that matters." Meanwhile, Sech is focused on promoting his recently released album 42.
Then, they went on to talk about about the genres that inspired their careers, which range from salsa to merengue, reggae and R&B, resulting in their eclectic sounds that have helped propel Latin music to a global level. "It's the flavor of our music that has been evolving and fusing with so many different sounds for many years now," Sech pointed out. "It's only time that we become global," he added.
