La Bichota and her band performed some of her most well-known songs from her new album “Mañana será bonito,” released earlier this year. The studio record has made history as the first Spanish-language album by a female artist to debut at number one.
In March, both Colombians reached number one on the Hot Latin Songs chart with the song “TQG,” becoming the third pair of female artists to debut at that position since the chart’s launch in 1986, according to Billboard reports.
Karol G’s concert started with the song “Amargura,” rousing crowd members who started singing with her. On Twitter, her followers shared their love for the spectacular moment they witnessed.
Some even slept on the streets to see their idol face to face.

The last time the TODAY stage saw a record break was when Lady Gaga drew a staggering crowd of 20,000 fans in 2010. Thirteen years later, Karol G has shown that Latinas can do it too.
Among the many fans that attended the event, one moment took the cake for us. Prepare the tissues.
In the middle of the electric atmosphere, a 12-year-old girl shared the stage with the “Provenza” singer, and had an adorable moment.
When host, Hoda Kotb, asked her about the overwhelming experience, the visibly excited and joyful young girl simply replied in Spanish and with tears in her eyes, “Something very beautiful.”
The singer, equally moved, couldn’t contain her emotions, amplifying the enchantment that filled the air. A magical encounter that transcended language, uniting the artist and her devoted admirers in an unbreakable bond. Social media exploded with compliments and messages for the Medellín native:
As this person tweeted, Karol G is a real “chimba.”

“Today was my debut on the Today Show stage, a stage that music legends have stepped on. Being our first time, we had over 15 thousand people, breaking a new record after 24 years. How do you land on this?” she wrote in Spanish.
