That and it like stood out to me so much I think that I was just like I actually like this at the time I wouldn’t really listen to Regional music it was more of like my dad’s mariachi music and like the old school stuff couple years later

NATO dro you know coros Talos he’s definitely like a Pioneer for this new genre that you call S Sero and like coros tumbos so many people got inspiration from Nat that he really took a big step and just changed the whole coros I feel like a lot of people just

Adapted to that quickly I do get some surprised sometimes when like for example in my shows I do meet and greets and after the shows like sometimes times even the moms are like crying and telling me how happy they are to have brought their daughter and it’s a great

Feeling when you just see the mom and the daughter crying it’s heartwarming just hearing everybody’s stories and it made me realize how much power you have towards you know your supporters and just that motivates me more to to keep doing what I’m do they’re like all my

Mini judges and I just I want to make sure I make them proud every time I drop an album there’s something that feels bigger than the one before and I think this album’s definitely going to feel bigger and just you know I feel like a musician after a year you know there’s

Improvements and like little things even musically and lyrically and the sound is just going to be a lot better it’s definitely exciting that the charts are literally full of you know Mexican artists yeah I’m excited for the next year to drop the album and be a part of

Those charts for the full cover profile head to billboard.com Lil nasx is no stranger to pushing boundaries and his latest track J Christ is no Different he brings all the religious and pop culture references in the music video take y back up you know we always bring you the latest in music news and here’s our top story peace out peace peace Usher John Cook Jay Balin and LeBron a teaser for Usher’s halftime

You how have you been keeping this a secret what’s been the hardest part of that I had to do some shows and I was on a times list so I had to do a red carpet that was really hard and then when the time does come what are you most excited

For about being a mom I don’t know it’s so much to be excited for honestly so it’s hard to say just one thing you know until it happen yeah exactly the flower for me it always symbolized timelessness femininity luxury it has a Eerie mystical quality about it as well

And it’s also the national flower of Colombia so for me it all tied in and then I didn’t find out that I was pregnant till later in my roll out but actually it’s also the flower of fertility so it actually all came together perfectly being that I’m Latina

And I’m a music you kind of get um categorized as a Latin artist even when you know not all of the music that I do is technically Latin music yeah exactly so realizing that it’s in a way people view it as its own genre when really like how I was saying earlier

There’s so many different genres that have to do with Latin music in the first place there’s so much different types of music you can make or in my case where I don’t only make music in Spanish I also make a lot of music in English and a lot

Of different genres in English as well so I think that in a way it can be a bit limiting because of that so for me definitely part of what I want to do and accomplish with my work is expand the way that people view all of the things

That we’re capable of doing for the full interview head over to billboard.com kid cuty took a little break from battling online trolls to release some new beats here’s [Applause] insano he recruited some of the biggest rappers on this this album like Travis Scott and ASAP Rocky time to talk about YY they just dropped their new album Born to Be and if you don’t know much about them well don’t worry we got you cover YY is no
