Karol G And Anuel AA Announced On Instagram That They Will Definitely Be Married In 2020

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you probably know that Karol G and Anuel AA were major players in the 2019 Latinx music game. Both artists (as well as Maluma) were listed as the most streamed Latinx artists of the year.

Separately, they have made serious names for themselves. Karol G is killing it as 2019’s most listened-to woman in urbano. “Tusa,” her latest—and possibly most celebrated—song of the year debuted at the top of Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, making history as the first female collaboration to do so. As for Anuel AA? He won Billboard’s 2019 Latin Music Award for New Artist of the Year, though he’s been on the scene since the early aughts and is considered a major pioneer of Latin trap music.

Although both Karol G and Anuel AA are independently famous, they’ve been making headlines together since they first started collaborating late in the summer of 2018, shortly after Anuel AA was released from prison for unlawful possession of a firearm. Their debut came in the form of the straight bop “Culpables,” and though fans everywhere speculated that they must be a thing, the artists insisted for months that they were just close friends. (At the Latin GRAMMYs in November of 2018, Karol G told Billboard: “We have a great friendship. Anuel is all yours, ladies.”)

But have you heard “Culpables?!” Not only is it an absolute jam—it recounts the story of two people who fall in love while they are dating other people (though these other people are also fooling around), and the lyrics (paired with chemistry shared by Karol G and Anuel AA in the music video) seemed to confirm back then that they were, for sure, a couple. But they continued to play with the public, staying silent in the face of rumors and avoiding any real PDA (during their first live performance of “Culpables” in Miami, Anuel went in for a kiss, and Karol seriously dodged him, causing people to think that what she’d said about them being “just friends” must actually be true).

But then it happened—on Anuel AA’s November 26 birthday, the couple made their relationship Instagram official, posting precious messages that (finally!) declared their love to the world.

Since then, they have assumed true power couple status. Three of their collaborative singles topped the charts in 2019: in January, “Culpables” peaked at No. 8; “Secreto” hit No. 4 in April; and “China” debuted at No. 2 in July. When they appeared together at Billboard’s Latin Music Awards in April, the world got their first red-carpet glimpse of them as not just a hyper-successful collaborative pair, but as an official romantic couple. That was also the moment we realized how serious of a couple they were. Because Karol G was wearing something very shiny on a certain finger—a jewel that had started many engagement rumors in the months prior to that awards show.

Although the couple didn’t speak much about their wedding plans last year, Karol G did share some ideas about how she envisioned her big day.

“I think I want something super simple, something natural, something small,” she shared. “To be honest, I haven’t thought about the specific things because I want everything to be super simple and natural as possible.” She added, “In reality, what I want is for people not to stress about how they’re going to look and what they are going to wear. Or by the fact that there might be news outlets around, and we might feel restrained from having a good time.”

Though, of course, the superstar also mentioned some of the most necessary ingredients for a picture-perfect wedding: “I want there to be cakes and pastries all over the place, meats and pastas and sweets,” she said. “So my family, a super DJ and lots of food. And obviously the groom.”

And after an almost year-long engagement, Karol G’s vision will become a reality! Because the power pareja has announced via Instagram that they are definitely getting married in 2020.

An exact date has yet to be shared, but Anuel AA captioned his Instagram post with the words “Este a año hay boda,” so fans everywhere rejoice! According to Entertainment Tonight, Anuel AA also wishes for a simple wedding, just like his wife-to-be.

“As long as I have the beach, we good,” he said. “All the family [there].”

So superfans of the “prince and princess of Latin music” can rest easy (and get excited!) knowing that wedding bells are on the horizon. Let’s hope that their union comes with some more hot releases to top the charts of 2020!

Bad Bunny’s ‘Yo Perreo Sola’ Music Video Has Drag, Female Empowerment, And Artistic Styling That Is World-Class

Bad Bunny is known to push gender norms and supports the LGBTQ+ community. His music videos are artistic expressions of the world he wants to live in. His latest music video for the song “Yo Perreo Sola” is catching everyone’s attention for several reasons including the trapero singing and dancing in full drag.

Bad Bunny starts his “Yo Perreo Sola” music video in a hot red leather drag outfit.

Like, dayum. The Puerto Rican trap star did not hold back. His look was everything as he gave us some “Oops…I Did It Again” dominatrix vibes. The fans were not prepared for this but it seems that most of them are all for Bad Bunny pushing boundaries even further in Latin trap.

The imagery is literally being celebrated for its strong statement for the LGBTQ+ community.

Bad Bunny was very outspoken about Alexa Negrón Luciano, a trans woman who was murdered in Puerto Rico and misgendered in media reports. The singer was on “The Late Show starring Jimmy Fallon” and used the moment to protest the treatment of Luciano’s legacy. Bad Bunny wore a shirt that read in Spanish, “They killed Alexa, not a man in a skirt.”

Bad Bunny fans were ready to defend their fave and his new music video.

To many, Latin trap is still a place where homophobia and misogyny fester in lyrics by some of the top performers. Bad Bunny is one artist that has been fighting against that culture from within. He has bent gender norms in music videos and it has set his career apart from other Latin trap musicians.

And they are all celebrating the anguish of straight men who listen to Bad Bunny and have social hang-ups.

The same homophobia in Latin trap is reflected within the community. Bad Bunny’s unapologetic willingness to take gender and flip it on its head is just one thing fans love about the trapero.

Bad Bunny never disappoints, does he?

Latinas Shared Their Best Bits Of Marriage Advice And The Comment Section Got REAL

Recently, a FIERCE reader posed a pretty poignant question on Twitter: “If you could give me advice on marriage, what would it be?”

Married folks and mujeres that were once married offered up their best bits of advice! Check them out below!

View marriage as a bonus not the piece to a missing puzzle.

My advice: don’t do it!! JUST KIDDING. my mom says, view marriage as an additional bonus to your life not as a completion . You’re an amazing complete woman on your own.” –pelucaazul

Beware the red flags.

“As someone going through a divorce: make a list of all the red flags (small and big) and play each one out and truly determine if any are problematic. The small red flags now always come back up later. Some can be worked on, some can be communicated through , but some are a sign of unsettled trauma/machismo/addictions/narcissism etc.”- _ashlyndarling

Keep up the dating game.

“Never stop dating each other!”-mariaelena34

If you’re getting advice about your life, get it from the right people.

“Its between you two!!! . Dont try to fit your relationship into stereotypical molds… what works for you may not be what other ppl say! Also, dont bad talk your boo even if you’re mad and frustrated. What you feed, grows. And always remember to flirt with your husband lik y’all still dating. And, if you turn to someone for advice, make sure they understand healthy marriages. Soooooo many ppl in the world giving advice but dont have a healthy successful marrige…. be open wi th your boo, be honest, nd hve fun! Best wishes&blessings – AH.”-autumnhype

Don’t compare yourself. It’s not a tit for tat game.

“Never compare yourself to other marriages or your parent’s marriage. Your marriage is whatever you want it to be and cultivate together, this is completely up to you and your spouse. This is the most freeing thing I have ever heard and made me appreciate my marriage more!”-cathrinemolstad

Don’t put up with behaviors or treatments within marriage that your instincts are telling you are wrong.

“Married 20 years and my best advice is to trust your instincts. In my marriage what has worked is respecting my partner and expecting that same level of respect, that reciprocity goes for kindness, compassion, patience, and forgiveness too. But, ultimately, this is big, don’t marry someone if your instincts are telling you it’s wrong, don’t put up with behaviors or treatments within marriage that your instincts are telling you are wrong, and don’t stay if those same instincts are telling you it’s wrong. You know you, what you want, need, can and can’t handle. That’s the voice to defer to – not your friends, society, or family. The union should bring you and the other person great personal growth. I realize that all sounds like a high bar and it is. People get and stay married, settling for far less than they should, because there is (or they perceive) external pressures to do so. Resist this. Marriage is not for everyone and not every partner is a commit your life partner. Finally, though, it’s 2020. Marriage isn’t irreversible. If it’s not working, that’s okay and don’t take it as a failure, but an awareness of your worth and growth.”-sheexistshere

Grow with each other.

“Grow with each other. Ive been with mine for 8 years (married 2). We started dating at 16 and 19, and man have times changed. If we didn’t make mistakes, keep each other accountable, help each other figure out what we each wanted to do, we won’t be together after all this time.” –danielaherreranyc

Communication is key

“Always communicate even if it sounds like something silly and always find time for each other no matter how busy your day can be.”-lauraelnasser
