JB— When I was younger, I resonated with their attitude and energy more than anything else. There was something so cool about the different styles of confidence and swag that each of them had. Same with Dipset—the look and attitude was just as important as the music they were making. That inspired me to own whatever I was doing and just deliver it with confidence, whether it was playing shows to hardly any fans early on in my career or playing to stadiums like I do now.

When Beyoncé remixed “Mi Gente” and made some of her contributions in Spanish, that felt like a huge moment for Spanish culture.

 

IG— As other Latin music artists continue to achieve success, I’m curious what you think about the state of Latin music in 2021— do you think this ‘Latin music renaissance’ is going to continue?

 

JB— This is the most exciting time that has ever existed for Latin music, period. I spent the first half of my career trying to establish an audience for Latin music among people that don’t speak Spanish, and the way …….
