Colombian singer-songwriter Karol G, aged 32, has been bestowed with the prestigious title of Woman of the Year by Billboard. The announcement, made ahead of the forthcoming Billboard Women in Music Awards scheduled for March 6th, marks a significant milestone in the artist’s career.

Karol G, born Carolina Giraldo Navarro, has garnered widespread acclaim, recently clinching her inaugural Grammy award. Her musical prowess and unapologetic confidence have catalyzed a global movement, resonating with audiences through her empowering lyrics.

Hannah Karp, Billboard’s editorial director, lauded Karol G’s impact, stating, “With her immense talent, Karol G has created a movement for women across the globe due to her empowering lyrics and shameless confidence.” Karp further emphasized the significance of Karol G’s chart-topping album, “Mañana Será Bonito,” which has solidified her position as a dominant force in both English and Spanish music charts.

Notable among her achievements is the hit single “Ahora Me Llama,” featuring Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, which elevated her profile on the global stage.

Her debut album, “Unstoppable,” released in 2017, peaked at number two on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, further cementing her presence in the music industry. However, it was her fourth album, “Mañana Será Bonito,” released in February 2023, that marked a watershed moment in her career. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, showcasing Karol G’s meteoric rise to prominence.
