Welcome to #TBT Mixtape, Billboard‘s series that showcases artists’ very own throwback-themed playlists exclusive to Billboard‘s Spotify account. The curated set features the artists’ favorite tracks from their youth and childhood.
This week’s spin comes from Natti Natasha. The Dominican star is in the midst of a major crossover thanks to a series of hit collaborations this year including “Amantes de Una Noche” alongside Bad Bunny, the reggaeton smash “Sin Pijama” opposite Becky G, and “Justicia” featuring Silvestre Dangond, which hit the top 10 on Billboard‘s Latin Rhythm Airplay chart in the week ending Sept. 30. The fast rising upstart even went back to her Dominican roots with the bachata solo single “Quién Sabe” this summer.
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Natasha further reflects on her upbringing and musical origins with this week’s #TBT Mixtape, inspired by the early hits that first pulled her toward music. “These songs have been my inspiration,” she tells Billboard. “I listened to these tracks to remember my beginnings and who I am.”
Give the nostalgic set a spin and also check out some retro snaps of the star below.
