Here’s How Natti Natasha Came From A Humble Town In Dominican Republic To Being The Woman With Most Views On YouTube

We love us some SLW! (it stands for Strong Latina Woman, of course), and Natti Natasha is certainly one of them. Her morenaza looks and her unashamedly fierce attitude have helped her climb the ranks of the musical industry, while becoming a voice for fellow women and for Brown identity, both in the United States and in Latin American markets such as Peru, Colombia, and Chile, where she is incredibly famous.

These are some facts you need to know about this gorgeous lady that has arrived para quedarse.

Su nombre completo is…

Her birth certificate reads Natalia Alexandra Gutiérrez Batist, but it is OK if you simply call her Natti, short for Natalia in most Latin American countries.

Her birthday is very close to Navidad

She was born on December 10, 1986. We wonder if tiny chiquita Natalia got double presents at the end of the year! And yes, this powerhouse is as young as she is talented.

She is a proud native of Santiago de los Caballeros, in the Dominican Republic

This Caribbean queen began her mi involvement in music at a very early age. When she was just seven-years-old she registered in the School of Fine Arts of her hometown, training as a singer.

As a child of the sea, of course, she was influenced by Bob Marley, but also by Jerry Rivera and the amazing Lauryn Hill, a member of The Fugees and one of the most powerful female Black voices of recent years.

She moved to New York when she was just 18

This brave lady moved to the United States when she was just dieciocho, trying to start a career in pop music. That is where she had a meeting that would change her life.

She met Don Omar and her life as a struggling singer living in the Bronx took a giant leap

Don Omar, who is the godfather of Latino reggaeton in the United States, singed Natti Natasha to his record label, Orfanato Music Group. Her dream was starting to take shape.

Just like any reggaeton artist, Natti Natasha’s beginnings were marked by collaborations with more established artists. She released “Dutty Love” with Don Omar and “Crazy in Love” with Farruko. These songs were part of a compilation album released by Don Omar.

2017: the year of Daddy Yankee

Another rite of passage in the industry is to collaborate with the legendary Daddy Yankee, and Natti Natasha did do in 2017, with the song “Otra Cosa”.

In 2017 she also broke into the Billboard charts, esa es mija!

After her song with Daddy Yankee she collaborated with Ozuna, and the song, “Criminal”, was a hit, one of those songs that seem to be blessed by the gods of music. She reached the top five in the Billboard Hot Latin Songs.

If you are reading this, we are almost sure that you have listed to “Sin Pijama”, Natasha’s collaboration with the other reina del raeggeton, Becky G. The video has reached one billion views. Damn!

Her debut album was released in 2019

Yes, the muy pegajoso and amazing album Illuminati was released on February 15 this year. It was launched by Pina Records and Sony Music Latin. Not bad for a Dominican princess who once had a dream!

Her YouTube numbers are higher than Taylor Swift’s and Ariana Grande’s

Just to get an idea of how big of a deal she is: in 2018 alone her videos were watched over 4 billion times. Just let that sink in for a moment. Son un chingo de veces. 

She is a natural beauty

Yes, she might be all maquillada and super-produced onstage, but she is a natural and honest belleza. Just look at this picture of her sans makeup: that skin speaks of self-care and self-love.

She has a raw, empowering sensuality

Natti Natasha is not afraid to show off her physical attributes and is very, very flirty and amazing on social media (see picture above!). She is what modern femininity is all about.

The industry has fallen at her feet

Natasha has won so many accolades that we can only imagine what her mantelpiece will look like when she is an old lady looking back at her life. She was a big winner in the 2019 Premio Lo Nuestro awards, where she took home four awards. She has also won the Hot Latin Songs Artist of the Year, Female, award at the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards.

She has visited Venezuela recently, where she experienced first-hand the awesomeness of its people

She recorded the video for “No voy a llorar” in the embattled country. She shared heart-warming photos and a positive message on her Insta. We can’t help but love her.

She is brave and is unafraid of challenges

In the Women in the Lead Panel at Latin Music week, she said: “It was more about not being afraid of doing certain things. Not being afraid of collaborating with other females, not being afraid of singing as a solo artist. That’s the key to becoming successful in this industry: to dare and to not be afraid.” Thanks for your courage, queen!

She has succeeded in a world dominated by men

And this doubles her merit. She told Rolling Stone about her experience writing her debut album: “I saw myself struggling with being independent. And being afraid to try different things, of going into different genres, of going into a studio and being [the only] girl.” We are thankful for women like herself and Becky G, who have broken the proverbial glass ceiling for future generations of Latina talent.

Rob Kardashian is head over heels for her, but he has been a bit creepy in doing so. No, Rob, just no.

Yes, Rob Kardashian was being a bit viejo cochino on Twitter... seriously, dude. There are DM’s and if Natti Natasha wants to reply, then that is her prerogative.

The international sponsorships have started… be ready to live in Natti Natasha’s world!

Natti Natasha has struck a deal with internationally famous liqueur Malibu (a coconut lover’s dream). This is a big breakthrough for any Spanish-speaking artist. Her charm and above all her talent will surely lead to more tratos jugosos.

She has collaborated with la crema y nata of Latin music, and she will continue to do so

Credit: Instagram. @nattinatasha

The ever-expanding list of talent she has collaborated with include Bad Bunny, R.K.M & Ken-Y, Becky G, Thalía and Cosculluela. The sky is the limit for this reina dominicana and we are sure we will see much more of her in the years to come.

Fans Are Telling Offset To Watch His Back After They Discovered How Hot Cardi B’s Bodyguard Is

Fans Are Telling Offset To Watch His Back After They Discovered How Hot Cardi B’s Bodyguard Is

@OceanPopNews/ Twitter

As you may know, on Tuesday Cardi B made an appearance at Queens Criminal Court to deal with the case of attempted assault on New York bartenders Sarah “Jade” Wattley and Rachel Wattley. While Cardi immediately made headlines for her fashion-forward outfit that consisted of a large black coat decked out in feathers and a matching wide-brimmed hat, another member of her entourage was making headlines for an entirely different reason

Of the litany of paparazzi pictures documenting Cardi entering the courthouse, Cardi’s fans clocked the visage of a particularly handsome man closely following Cardi In the background  The gentleman in question was revealed to be Cardi B’s bodyguard, who goes by the name of Price. Wearing a black turtleneck, a gray blazer, and a trendy fisherman beanie, Mr. Price looked as if he just stepped out of a Calvin Klein ad.

As soon as the internet set their sights on Cardi’s bodyguard, all mention of her legal woes went out the window.

With his chiseled jawline, furrowed brow and pouty lips, it seems as if Price was born to become an internet thirst trap. His Instagram feed is chock-full of pictures of him smoldering for the camera, decked to the nines in stylish designer clothes. It’s safe to say that Price could have had a very successful career as a male model if he hadn’t pursued a career in security.

But based off of his social media activity, Price seems to be completely content with his current calling. According to his Instagram page, Price owns and operates Priceless Protection Services, a private security company that’s based out of Georgia. He frequently shares posts about how blessed he feels to have the job he does. On Cardi’s birthday, Price shared a photo of the two of them on his page, with a caption that read: “It’s an honor continuing to protect you and your family”.

Not only is Price a successful businessman, but he appears to be a devoted father as well.

Adorably enough, Price often shares photos of himself with his son, the most recent one being on Thanksgiving. He captioned the precious photo of him and his son: “He has me lost for words when I usually have so much to say”. No word yet on whether Price is single or taken (but we’re hoping for the former).

According to Price’s Instagram page, he is also a loyal employee. He appears to have a close relationship with his employer, frequently singing Cardi’s praises through effusive posts, like the most recent one congratulating Cardi for gracing the cover of Vogue. “You are 100% deserving of god‘s plan for your life,” he captioned under a photo of Cardi holding her baby, Kulture.

Considering the popularity of Cardi’s hot bodyguard, it could be possible that she hired him in order to detract attention from her frequent headline-making antics.

It should be noted that Cardi wasn’t visiting Queens Criminal Court for a lighthearted matter. The “I Like It” singer was attending a hearing related to the 2018 altercation she had with Sarah “Jade” Wattley and Rachel Wattley outside of a New York strip club.

According to sources, Cardi tried to attack the Wattley sisters in retaliation for Jade’s romantic involvement with her husband, Offset. Cardi was charged and arrested in October 2018 for her involvement in the altercation, and earlier this year she pled not guilty to two felony counts of attempted assault as well as the lesser counts such of harassment, conspiracy, and reckless endangerment. In other words, Cardi is dealing with a lot right now.

Naturally, Twitter users couldn’t get enough of the tall, dark, and handsome Mr. Price.

People were shook that Cardi could be constantly surrounded by such a snack without giving into the temptation of…indulging.

This Twitter user decided to use the buzz around Cardi’s bodyguard to shoot her shot:

We can’t blame a girl for trying.

This girl decided to keep her love for price simple and to the point:

Join the club, chica.

This person had a brilliant idea after seeing pics of Cardi with Price:

We would even settle for a reality show at this point.

Some people had some spot-on jokes about how Offset should be watching his back:

Yes, we know Offset and Cardi have a solid relationship, but if there’s one thing that can sever a bond as strong as theirs, it’s a razor-sharp jawline.

Goodbye To The 2010s: 11 Crazy Reality TV Moments You Didn’t Remember Actually Happened This Decade

MTV

Reality is messy and unpredictable. So it’s only fitting that reality TV is just the same, messy and unpredictable —x1000. And these past 10 years have really seen a surge in reality programming. So we couldn’t say goodbye to the decade before revisiting some of the wildest reality TV moments of the past years. Some of these were so shocking that we thought they deserved their own shout out. So read along and enjoy. 

When Snooki got punched

Okay, okay, we know this isn’t technically part of the last decade but it was right at the very brink of it. In 2009 Jersey Shore cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was enjoying herself with her squad at the bar and having a good time when she started arguing with a random guy who seemed drunk, and punched her. Ferro was not a cast member and the whole thing became a huge scandal. 

Caitlyn Jenner’s Transition

In a “KUWTK” special called “About Bruce,” Caitlyn Jenner revealed that she was a transgender woman publicly for the first time and was beginning her transition. 

Miss Universe 2015

Steve Harvey only had one job the night that he hosted Miss Universe and that was to announce the rightful winner to the crown. As you know by now, he messed it up and big time. Instead of announcing Miss Philippines, as the winner, he announced Miss Colombia as the winner when she was actually the runner-up. 

American Idol Charlotte Auditions

Be honest: How many of you watched American Idol just for to see the eye rolls and subtle (and not-so-subtle) digs between judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey? You can answer truthfully, this is a safe place. And you are definitely not alone.

Mystique Summers Madison reminded Morgan McMichaels where she’s from.

When things got tense on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and Mystique Summers Madison reminded Morgan McMichaels where she’s from; “B*tch I will whoop yo a*s I’m from Chicago!” …things escalated pretty quickly from there. 

Tristan Khloe and Jordyn Woods’ cheating scandal

When Kelly and Abby got into a physical fight on Dance Moms.

Kelly brought up that Abby said Kelly’s daughter looks miserable, Abby denied saying that…cue the fighting.
