Early Life and Career Beginnings: Becky G was born as Rebbeca Marie Gomez in 1997 in Inglewood, California. Through her parents, Alejandra and Francisco, she is Mexican-American, and has two brothers and a younger sister. When Gomez was around nine, the family lost their home due to financial difficulties. To help out, Gomez started to work part-time jobs, including doing commercials and voiceover work. She initially attended public school, but transitioned to homeschool due to bullying problems.
In 2008, Gomez appeared in the short film “El Tux” and the Discovery Channel television film “La estación de la Calle Olvera.” The next year, she realized her dreams of becoming a singer when she joined the girl group G.L.A.M., with which she filmed a music video. During this time, Gomez started recording herself singing and rapping, and posted her videos on YouTube. She also began writing her own songs, and learned how to play guitar. Subsequently, Gomez befriended and worked with production duo The Jam; together, they did covers of songs including “Novacane,” “Boyfriend,” and “Otis.”
Commercial Breakthroughs: Gomez’s cover of “Otis” drew the attention of producer Dr. Luke, who ended up signing the young artist to his label Kemosabe Records. While working on her debut album, Gomez collaborated on various projects with a number of other artists, including will.i.am, Cher Lloyd, and Cody Simpson.

Following this, Gomez became the spokeswoman for CoverGirl, filming commercials and featuring the brand in her music videos. She also released the singles “Can’t Stop Dancin’,” “Lovin’ So Hard,” and “Break a Sweat,” and did a co-headlining tour with Colombian singer J Balvin.
Transition to Latin Music: In 2016, Gomez released her single “Sola,” her first to be sung entirely in Spanish.

She released the single “Todo Cambio” in early 2017, and subsequently collaborated with Argentine singer Axel on the single “Que Nos Animemos.” A little later, she released “Mayores,” the first single from her debut album. Featuring rapper Bad Bunny, the song topped the charts in Spain, Chile, El Salvador, and Ecuador, and hit number three on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.
