Grace's Dominican heritage has everything to do with who she is and the music she creates. The 22-year-old singer, who is known for her bachata sound, first made waves with her bilingual rendition of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," which landed her on the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Tropical Songs and Latin Airplay charts, becoming the youngest female artist to do this.
"The appreciation for both my Dominican and American influences enabled me to create the fusion of music I perform today, which ranges from bachata to pop/urban sounds," Grace tells ET exclusively. The three-time Latin GRAMMY nominee has released two studio albums, Pasión (2009) and Leslie Grace (2013). She is now working on her third LP, which includes a more Latin pop sound than before, and her latest single, "Díganle," featuring Becky G.
"For the past two years I’ve focused on steadily growing as a person and artist, and channeled all of my experiences into writing in the studio," Grace shares. "I’ve had the fortune of collaborating with so many amazing songwriters, who I’ve learned from and created wonderful friendships in the process! I’ve definitely matured personally in this time and it’s reflected in my music. I’ve grown to feel much more comfortable and justified in expressing myself and being vulnerable in the studio."
As far as what Grace wants to accomplish in the future, the singer says she wants to try her hand at acting, and as a fashion lover, hopes to one day be able to design her own clothing life.
