Let’s get to the nitty-gritty: 2018 has been a wonderful year for women in music, especially Latinas! If we get the conversation started, we can talk for hours about how awesome a year such as Natti Natasha, Becky G, Leslie Grace, Anitta, and Greeicy have had.
For now, let’s shine the spotlight on Karol G, who besides dropping catchy AF music selections in 2018 and headlining a U.S. tour is nominated for her first-ever Latin Grammy for Best Urban Song with “Mi Cama.”
Billboard is highlighting the Colombian singer’s exceptional year by recapping all of her collaborations in 2018 (so far).
