The Colombian music artist, Karol G, received the Rule Breaker Award that honors female artists who use their music and platform to defy expectations, during the Billboard Women in Music awards, streamed on March 2. 

“I’m happy, happy, super happy. Believe me that I saw this a lot of times on TV, dreaming of one day being here…” the urban artist said. “Thank you, Billboard, for giving me this and for giving me the opportunity to perform in front of all these amazing queens.”

Karol G has topped Billboard‘s year-end top Latin artists female chart for the past three consecutive years: 2021, 2020, and 2019. Many of her songs and collaborations have also been at the top of the charts, such as “Bichota”, the Becky G collaboration “MAMII”, and the Nicki Minaj collaboration “Tusa”.

The Colombian artist offered a special thank you to Christina Aguilera, and said “the world teaches us all the time to see bad things in each other and in ourselves, and what about if we just see the beautiful things in us? I try to do that every day.”
