Q&A: Becky G unveils every side of herself in latest album

NEW YORK (AP) — Becky G finds every bit of her represented in the songs of her new album, “Esquemas.”

“I can feel the parts of me that feel empowered. I can feel the parts of me that feel sexy. I can feel the parts of me that feel strong. I can feel the parts of me that feel vulnerable,” the Latin star says.

The 14-track “Esquemas”, which is out Friday and can be translated as outlines, includes the hit “Mamiii” with Karol G, as well as the previously released singles “No Mienten”, “Fulanito” with El Alfa, “Bailé Con Mi Ex” and “Ram Pam Pam”, with Natti Natasha.

It opens with the uplifting “Buen Día” and invites to dance and move with a mix of rhythms like pop, reggaeton, cumbia and hip-hop, in titles like “Tajín,” “Guapa,” the murky banger “Kill Bill” and the sensual “Una Más.”

It’s lyrics promote female empowerment, self-confidence and self-love.

“That definitely was the intention,” said the Mexican-American singer in an interview.

“I think throughout the pandemic we’ve all had our own personal experiences,” she said. “For me, it gave me time to think about things that were more important in life. Not about ticket sales or how many streams I got on a song … but (about) my family, my health, my mental health. And I was able to create music just to create music.

“‘Esquemas’ is literally a genre-bending or genre-less album. Its songs are really just based on storytelling, real, true emotion and empowerment, for sure.”

Becky G, whose real name is Rebbeca Marie Gomez, also spoke about “Dolores,” a touching song inspired by her “abuelita” (grandmother), and how important it’s been for her to honor her immigrant grandparents by staying true to her roots and singing in Spanish.
