Becky G Is All Grown Up In Sexy “Mangú” Video
Becky G is only 19-year-old, but she’s already reinvented herself more often than most veterans. After bursting on to scene as a gap-toothed teen rapper, the lovely Latina dabbled in dance-pop on “Shower” and landed her first top 20 hit. That lead to string of great singles (“Can’t Stop Dancin’,” “Lovin’ So Hard” and the Demi Lovato-intended “Break A Sweat”). Unfortunately, none of them connected at pop radio and the pop/rap diva went back to the drawing board — only to emerge earlier this year with Spanish-language bop “Sola.”
It turns out the song is the first taste of Becky’s debut Spanish-language album. She follows it up today (October 7) with a fiery banger called “Mangú,” which finds her sing/rapping over sultry Latin beats. It’s a great sound for her and definitely sets the persistent teen apart from the legion of wannabe millennial pop divas. The video, in particular, makes a statement. The Empire actress shows off her sexy side, dancing on the top of a bar with her girls. The message is clear — she’s all grown up and doing things her way. Watch up top.
