Becky G Says She's Pitched a Joint Album With Natti Natasha After 'Sin Pijama' Success (Exclusive)

By

Becky G is ready to take the magic that was "Sin Pijama" to the next level. 

ET's Denny Directo spoke with the 22-year-old singer after Billboard's "Women in the Lead" panel in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday, where she revealed that she's spoken with Natti Natasha about collaborating on a full album. 

"I told her, 'Dude, we need to do an album. Like, why not?'" Becky dished, explaining how working together on "Sin Pijama" last year was a "game-changing moment" for her. 

"I think for me, I was so confident and sure in what I brought to the table, I was so excited to work with someone who was the same way about everything that she's doing," she recalled. "That kind of changed the way people perceived female collaborations, especially in urban music, because it really had never been done before. And so when we did that, we did that." 

Natti agreed. "Those numbers... it didn't exist, and 'Sin Pijama,' I feel like that collaboration opened windows for those little girls that we want to see," she told ET. "Girls with girls are not competition, we're here to collaborate each one with their essence, and I feel like that's the important part here."

Becky continued, giving herself a pat on the back for ignoring the critics and trusting her gut to put Natti on the record, which she said made "music history." "That's going to be one of those first impressions in the urban Latin space that people remember, 'Damn, they killed that,'" she raved. 

The "Mayores" singer said she's "so ready" to release an album. "I've been ready for a long time... I've had five releases in five weeks, and that's different collaborations, different music videos, my own music, English, Spanish. I have another one dropping this week," she shared. "I feel like as artists, we deserve that liberty, that creative freedom to just create, and if it does well, awesome, but as long as we're living our truth, you know?"

Becky will be highlighting her collab with Anitta at the Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday, where they'll perform their new song, "Banana." 

"It's going to be so much fun," she teased. "We're blocking while learning the choreography, so we're just going to have fun. I'm just going to leave it at that. We're going to kill it, because it's all about having fun on the stage, right, and we're basically bringing the music video to life, so I hope people enjoy it."

The Billboard Latin Music Awards will broadcast live from Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Telemundo.
