BECKY G

Rebecca Marie Gomez is a typical Los Angeles teenager apart from having what you may call an old head on young shoulders.  At the age of 9 she had a moment where she wondered what direction her life was taking, something every adult goes through in later years!  She grew up listening to Soul legends like James Brown and Etta James while helping her mother clean and making Mexican food with her grandmother.  Also, her idols were the likes of Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez while also taking in the Latin sounds of her father's Mexican ranchera songs.
Becky G taught herself guitar at age 13 and two years earlier she wrote and recorded her own songs on Garageband on the Internet.  She has done voice overs and commercials to help her parents with money and in 2011 a lucky break came her way.  Putting videos of herself on YouTube singing and rapping her own lyrics over famous songs caught the eye of producer Dr Luke, who signed her up for his Kemosabe record label! Luke had previously worked with such high profile stars as Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Britney Spears.
After a few collaborations on singles with Cody Simpson, Cher Lloyd and Kesha, Becky has released several singles including her biggest hit so far in 2014 "Shower" which hit the Billboard chart's highest placing of #16.  She also appeared on "Excuse My Rude" on Jessie J's second album "Alive".
Becky G is a potential superstar, she certainly has an intelligence and savvy beyond her years.  She says of her songs, "all I'm doing is putting my life on paper".  Her Rap-Pop-Latin style is certainly growing on the American public and the world will soon take notice.  Becky's debut album will soon be following in the footsteps of her initial E.P. "Play It Again" and she has already previewed 4 tracks as singles.
