Video also released via Kemosabe Records/RCA Records
Global superstar Becky G releases new single “My Man” along with the music video via Kemosabe Records/RCA Records. The track, which was produced by Di Genius, was written by Becky alongside Di Genius, Elena Rose, Edgar Barrera, Fresh, Maurice “Verse” Simmonds, Janée “Jin Jin” Bennett and Jenni Rivera. Inspired by Jenni Rivera’s “La Gran Senora,” the song is a fun and flirty expression of female empowerment as it takes on the narrative of staying with your man through ups and downs, thick and thin. The video, which was shot at home and inspired by spending time nonstop with your partner during quarantine, features Becky alongside her boyfriend, LA Galaxy player Sebastian Lletget. It was creative directed by Pedro Paulo Araujo of 2 Wolves/SOTA.
“I always loved the perspective Jenni Rivera sang from on ‘La Gran Señora’ and thought that it was so different,” Becky G shares. “It’s a unique perspective that is never really shared in songs, so I thought it would be dope to bring an up-beat 2020 Becky G flow to a concept story like that with my Spanglish style.”
“The music video is a true moment that has now been captured forever. This pandemic will be something Sebastian & I will never forget. Sharing a ‘fly on the wall’ point of view to the silly and competitive side of us from behind closed doors and that people usually don’t get a chance to see, was so much fun. We really didn’t feel like we were shooting a video, we were just being us.”
Singer, songwriter and actress Becky G was born for the spotlight and her multifaceted career is shaping up to be nothing short of iconic. The 23-year-old global superstar’s achievements include two No. 1 hits on the Billboard Latin Airplay Charts (“Mayores” & “Sin Pijama”), a starring role in Power Rangers, and guest-starring in Fox TV’s Emmy-winning Empire series.
