A Little Motorcycle in the Bahamas Said Carolina Giraldo Navarro

Carolina Giraldo Navarro was born in 14 February 1991, known professionally as Karol G (stylized in all caps), is a Colombian singer. She is predominantly described as a reggaeton and Latin trap artist, but has experimented with a variety of other genres including reggae and sertaneja. She is also noted for her prominent female presence in the reggaeton scene. In 2018, she won the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist, and has been nominated for several Billboard Latin Music Awards and Premios Lo Nuestro awards.

Born and raised in Medellín, Giraldo launched her career as a teenager, appearing on the Colombian spinoff of The X Factor. She moved to New York City in 2014 to learn more about the music industry and signed to Universal Music Latino. Her collaboration with Puerto Rican singer and rapper Bad Bunny “Ahora Me Llama” became her breakthrough hit, and was the lead single for her debut album Unstoppable, released in 2017. In late 2018, her song “Secreto” became a hit in Latin America as she and Anuel AA publicly confirmed their relationship in the music video.

In July 2019, she released “China” in collaboration with Anuel AA, J Balvin, Daddy Yankee, and Ozuna, which became her first music video with over one billion views on YouTube. In May 2019, she released the album Ocean, which served as a stylistic departure from Unstoppable, incorporating a more relaxed atmosphere in her work. Her song “Tusa” with Nicki Minaj became an international success and was certified 28× Latin Platinum by the RIAA, staying on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart for 25 weeks. In 2020, Karol G received four nominations at the Latin Grammys.

Carolina Giraldo Navarro was born on 14 February 1991 in Medellin, the middle child of three children. At age fourteen, she appeared on the Colombian version of The X Factor. A few years after her performance on the show, she obtained her first record contract with Flamingo Records (Colombia) & Diamond Music (Puerto Rico) and chose “Karol G” as her artistic name. She performed with J Balvin at a quinceañera party soon after.

Karol G met Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA in August 2018 on the set of the music video for their song “Culpables”, a month after his release from prison. In January 2019, the couple confirmed their relationship. On 25 April 2019, Karol G arrived at the Billboard Latin Music Awards wearing a diamond wedding ring, confirming the couple’s engagement. On 20 April 2021, Anuel AA confirmed the couple had ended their relationship.

In July 2020, Karol G tested positive for COVID-19.
