Becky G

Singer-rapper-dancer-actress Becky G was discovered in 2011 after posting remix videos of herself on YouTube. Born Rebbeca Marie Gomez in 1997, the California girl decided at the age of 9 that she wanted to be an entertainer. Commercial work followed, as did a pair of failed attempts at forming successful girl groups. She soon began posting videos on YouTube, and her cover of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s ‘Otis’ earned her a contract with Dr. Luke. The teen started writing and appearing on tracks by the likes of Cody Simpson and Cher Lloyd. Becky’s ‘Play It Again’ EP dropped in 2013 and included the track ‘Can’t Get Enough’ featuring Pitbull. The Latina beauty became the face of CoverGirl later that year.
