“Becky G is making big waves in the reggaeton scene—owning a genre that is primarily dominated by men. In “Sola,” one of her edgiest songs yet, the words “Mejor Sola que Mal Acompañada” scroll across the screen at the beginning of the video: “Better Alone than with Someone Shitty.” That may be a bit of a liberal translation, but she makes it clear that while at only 19 she may not yet be a #nastywoman, she’s certainly an #independentwoman amongst her male counterparts.
