It's been two years since the singer released her sexy single "Mayores" with a then-relatively unknown Bad Bunny. The song because an instant hit, as well as introduced audiences to a whole new grown-up Becky.
ET's Denny Directo and Grecia Lopez caught up with Becky at the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Thursday, where she shared how amazing it has been to re-team with the reggaeton artist on his world tour.
"It's incredible, [he's] like family to me," Becky expressed. "When we did 'Mayores' together, although we loved the song so much and knew it was going to be a hit, what it did for both of our careers was monumental for both of us. Him taking that opportunity to allow me to take the stage on his world tour, that is amazing."
"For me, that was an honor because the truth is that's part of the men taking responsibility and saying, 'Hey, we want to be a part of this movement too," she added. "And it's not about creating a world where only women exist but equality and about coexisting."
"It’s so surreal and I think for me it's a true testament to continue working and continue staying focused, and sacrificing, and being creative because it really has started to pay off," Becky marveled. "Someone like her, who has accomplished so much, to be in the same category as her, I'm winning already. I feel very blessed."
With many mainstream and English-speaking artists have collaborated with Latin hit makers, Becky is loving how everyone is embracing the culture. However, she stated that there are a couple requirements for anyone who wants to be an honorary member of the "Latino gang."
"I think the biggest thing is to be authentic, be genuine. Don't do anything just because it’s hot right now, but because you genuinely want to be a part of it," she said. "And that is what I see with a lot of people. And one thing about Latinos that I do know for a fact is we love sharing. We love when people embrace our culture and enjoy it and have fun. I'm happy that people are joining la familia."
