Latin superstar Karol G has signed with Interscope Records.
Tuesday’s announcement comes months after the singer’s Manana Sera Bonito became the first Spanish-language album by a female artist to top the Billboard 200 albums chart.
“Manana Sera Bonito marked a new era for me with many unforgettable milestones. I am constantly amazed at the support my fans give me, which motivates me to be the best I can be, and I am sure that this partnership with Interscope and their incredible team will help us continue to build and make history. I’m thrilled to see what’s to come,” Karol G said in a statement.
The Latin Grammy-winning artist signed with Universal Music Latin Entertainment in 2016. Also part of the Universal Music Group family, Interscope is home to artists such as Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish, and Olivia Rodrigo.
Karol G, who is Colombian, has generated nearly 80 billion music streams worldwide and launched hits like “Provenza”, “TQG” with Shakira, “Mamiii” with Becky G, “Bichota” and “Tusa” with Nicki Minaj. She is one of the few artists who can sell out stadium shows like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift and will start her Stadium tour Mañana Será Bonito in August.
“Karol G is without question one of the most powerful, creative and dynamic artists in the world,” said John Janick, Chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M Records. “We are delighted to welcome her to the IGA family and look forward to working with her and her team on the next phase of her incredible career.”
Karol G’s career has expanded beyond music as well: she voiced the character Chima in the 2021 animated film Koati and she will appear in the upcoming Netflix series Griselda opposite Sofia Vergara.
“Our collaboration with Karol and her team dates back to the beginning of her career and it has been an exciting journey filled with incredible music. She is simply one of the most exciting artists in popular music today and we are honored that she has chosen to deepen her partnership with UMG for many years to come,” said UMG Chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge.
