Singer, songwriter, actress and activist Becky G was born for the spotlight and her multifaceted career is shaping up to be nothing short of iconic. The 24-year-old global superstar’s achievements include two number one hits on the Billboard Latin Airplay Charts (“Mayores” & “Sin Pijama”), a starring role in “Power Rangers,” and guest-starring in Fox TV’s Emmy-winning “Empire” series.
She has toured alongside Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, J Balvin, Fifth Harmony and Jason Derulo and has recorded collabs with Daddy Yankee, Maluma, Anitta, Natti Natasha, ZAYN, Bad Bunny, Ozuna, Pitbull and CNCO, among others.
Becky won the first-ever American Music Award for Favorite Latin Female Artist (2020) and the E! People’s Choice Award for The Latin Artist of 2020. She was awarded the Latin AMA for Favorite Female Artist two years in a row (2018 and 2019) and received the Latin AMA for Favorite Urban Song (for “Mayores”) in 2018. She was also presented the YouTube Diamond Play Button for surpassing 10 million followers on the platform (she now has over 18M).
Becky recently accepted the Agent of Change award at the 2020 Premios Juventud (Latin Youth Choice Awards) for her activism and using her platform to inspire positive change. In 2019, she accepted the Extraordinary Evolution Award at the 2019 Latin American Music Awards for her success as a young performer who has reached the pinnacle of success in a short period of time. She has also been honored by the Latin Recording Academy as one of the Leading Ladies in Entertainment (2018) and by her home city of Inglewood, California for her contributions to the Hispanic community; she has been recognized as one of Rolling Stone’s “18 Teens Shaking Up Pop Culture” and one of Billboard’s “21 Under 21”.
The multitalented star has hosted a number of prestigious award shows throughout the years including the 2019 European Music Awards (MTV) and the Latin GRAMMY Ellas TV special. Additionally, she hosted and produced her “En La Sala” podcast with Amazon Music – live from her living room during the lockdown. With every episode, Becky donated $10K to a charity of her choice, and spoke to high-profile guests from Vice President-elect Kamala Harris about politics to reggaetón star J Balvin about mental health.
As the granddaughter of Mexican Immigrants, born and raised in Inglewood, California, Becky is no stranger to hardships and is passionate about her community. She uses her massive platform to speak out against inequality and raise awareness on social issues, including Black Lives Matter and DREAMers, and has made it a point to give back to her community along the way.
After having released successful makeup collections for the Colourpop brand; Becky G recently launched her very own beauty brand, Treslúce. Treslúce Beauty creates, celebrates and supports Latinx heritage and culture, with high-performance, conscious, vegan-friendly formulations that deliver high impact artistry. Treslúce is inspired by Becky’s Mexican heritage and seeks to celebrate all Latinx cultures.
Becky is currently a brand ambassador for Xfinity Comcast and Michelob Ultra Pure Gold.
