Karol G adds a new achievement to her career: being Billboard’s woman of the year

Music news

Karol G does not stop adding achievements to her career. And is not for less! The Colombian star has become one of the biggest stars in music. In the last year he has reached the top of the charts thanks to the two albums (Tomorrow will be nice and Bichota Season), has also won the Latin Grammy for Best Album of the Year and has sold out three times at the Santiago Bernabéu. Almost nothing!

To all these achievements, Karol G has to add the fact of having won his first Anglo Grammy. And on Sunday it won the award for Best Urban Album. Quite a feat!

When we thought that Karol G couldn’t win any more awards, the diva surprised us by being named Woman of the Year for the famous American media Billboard. Another feat! And the singer has become the first artist who sings in Spanish to win this award.
