After serving two years in prison for gun possession charges, Anuel AA has turned his life around and it’s reflected in his music. Since his release in the summer of 2018, the Puerto Rican trap artist has topped the Billboard charts with his debut studio album Real Hasta la Muerte and sold out his first-ever U.S. tour. He’s currently making the rounds in Latin America with his Culpables Tour, joined by Colombian singer and girlfriend Karol G.
“We were the first media outlet to interview Anuel AA the day he walked out a free man, and now, we will be the media outlet to celebrate nine months of extraordinary achievements,” Leila Cobo, Billboard’s executive director of content and programming for Latin music and entertainment, said when the panel was announced in January.
