5 Uplifting Moments in Latin Music This Week (February 26)

From career milestones and new music releases to major announcements and more, Billboard editors highlight the latest news buzz in Latin music every week. Here’s what happened in the Latin music world this week.

UMG’s Latin artists showcase

On Feb. 23, Universal Music Latino presented a handful of emerging artists on their roster during a showcase that took place at Miami’s hit spot La Otra. Taking the stage during the star-studded event were artists Alex Sensation, Álvaro Díaz, Bad Gyal, La Gabi and Nino Freestyle who serenaded fans with their current hits and previewed new music.

The showcase — hosted by Lil’ Sabotage and Mike Deuce — kicked off with a medley by La Gabi, who became the first artist to be signed by MA G Nation, J Balvin’s music label. Another show-stopping performance was Bad Gyal’s who closed the showcase singing “Zorra,” “Flow 2000” and “Fiebre.”

Christina Aguilera talks about her biggest little fan

In honor of Billboard‘s upcoming Women in Music celebration on March 2, Christina Aguilera joined us for a candid conversation via Twitter Spaces where she talked all things music and motherhood. She also gushed about her daughter whom she describes as her biggest little fan since she has her mother’s Spanish EP, La Fuerza, on repeat during car rides.

“I don’t listen to my own music because I’m a perfectionist but my daughter when she gets in the car, all she wants to listen to is ‘La Fuerza’ and I’m so excited to get to share this with her,” the chart-topping artist shared. “She’s very into it. It’s been well-received by my biggest little fan.”
