Becky G Reflects On The Success of 'Shower' & How It's Shaped Her Future Music

Becky G shines on stage while performing at Calibash Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena over the weekend in Las Vegas.

The 21-year-old singer recently spoke with Paper magazine about her mega hit song, “Shower”, which hit airwaves back in 2014.

“‘Shower’ really did teach me a lot of things: Good things and maybe not the most positive things, but it did teach me that a song can be bigger than the artist, and it can take on a life of its own,” Becky shared while looking back on the track.

She adds, “I was very fortunate that that song was mine, but that song wasn’t written with me in mind, let alone was it a style of music that I wanted to continue singing. I think my fans could see that. I think people who loved the song [just] loved the song but didn’t know who I was.”

Now, Becky is taking inspiration from the song and putting the work into her future music.

“Moving forward, take away the numbers of views and social media — I just want to make good music that means something to me,” she adds. “That kind of captures these moments in my life, and like I said, that may be more rap music, that may be more R&B music, that may be more ballads, that may be more, I don’t know, reggae-type songs. The truth is I can’t say I am one genre because I am inspired by everything, and that’s kind of created this overall sound.”
