Latin Grammy-winning artist Chiquis opens up about her humble beginnings, growing up in a bilingual household, and falling in love with banda music in Billboard's new "Growing Up" episode.
In the 8-minute clip, the "Mi Problema" singer shares her journey as one of the few women in the male-dominated regional Mexican genre. "I knew it would be difficult because I lived it with my mom (Jenni Rivera) and had seen it first hand," says Chiquis, who grew up in a musical household as part of the Rivera dynasty.
She went on to release her first LP, Ahora, in 2015 but it was her 2020 album, titled Playlist, that scored her her first Latin Grammy. "I was scared because we had to release it during the pandemic, but we won the Grammy. It was amazing, I still look at it and think, 'Wow, I'm so grateful.'"
