Becky G Reflects on 10 Years of ‘Shower’ & Her Co-Hosting Era at 2024 Latin AMAs

Becky G has a double celebration this week: co-hosting the 2024 Latin American Music Awards and reaching 10 years since the release of “Shower.” 

Joining Thalia, Alejandra Espinoza and Carlos Ponce, Becky (real name: Rebbeca Marie Gomez) will co-host the award ceremony that will be presented in a combination of English and Spanish, marking the first time any major U.S. award show will feature a bilingual broadcast, according to a press statement

“It’s my first time coming to one of these awards shows and not feeling ashamed of being a Pocha, speaking in Spanglish,” the Mexican-American singer exclusively tells Billboard of her co-hosting era. “The fact that this is a historical moment that I get to be a part of, for me, brings me so much pride.” 


As a 100 percent Latina and 100 percent American, she elaborates on the importance of forming part of the bilingual celebration. “I know there are many generations that also identify with their Latin roots and want to participate in celebrating our culture but maybe don’t always feel welcomed to do so, so our hope is to extend a big hug to all the multi-generational families that are going to be watching this show,” she notes. 

In honor of this year’s theme, “We Speak Música,” Becky also reflected on the impact “Shower” has had on her fans—a song she released 10 years ago and ultimately put her on a wider scale. “It’s crazy. Yesterday, I saw a picture of Little Becky performing ‘Shower’ for the first time at an awards show, and it was a Spanglish version,” she expressed. “To fast forward and be here still doing what I love to do so much […] I feel very, very blessed.” 

The 2024 Latin American Music Awards will air live at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 25, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas via Univision, UNIMÁS, Galavisión and ViX.
