The fifth edition of the Latin American Music Awards will take place on October 17th in Hollywood, California. Last year, Maluma was the first to receive a new special award called the Extraordinary Evolution Award which recognizes the rapid success of a young performer who has bolted to stardom in a very short period of time. Telemundo has announced that Becky G, Mexican female artist, will receive this year’s award and will perform at the event. The 22 year old has already accomplished a lot. She’s had two, number 1 hits on Billboard’s Latin Charts; “Mayores” and “Sin Pijama”. And she won two awards at last year’s Latin American Music Awards, one for Favorite Female Artist and the other Favorite Urban Song – “Mayores.” Young Becky G has also collaborated with such stars as Pitbull, Maluma, Natti Natasha, Bad Bunny and CNCO. She was also seen on the big screen in the most recent Power Rangers film.
