Becky G won big at the Latin American Music Awards on Thursday, earning four of the nine awards she was nominated for, including song of the year, collaboration of the year and best pop/urban collaboration for her 2022 song “Mamiii” with Karol G.

Becky also took home best regional Mexican collaboration for “Ya Acabó,” a collaboration with the regional Mexican group Marca MP. During her emotional acceptance speech, she talked about her relationship with her Mexican heritage.


“I’ve always talked about how much it means to me to be Latina, but the pride of being Mexican is something else,” Becky said. “Throughout my career, I’ve mixed and played with different genres as an artist because there are a lot that inspire me, but being Mexican not only inspires my music.” She continued, stating that her Mexican roots define the way she loves her family and significant others.
