Definitely, Karol G is the great figure of urban music, in addition to continuing to reap resounding successes, now he breaks the record that only great singing stars have achieved in the world record industry.

The most recent feat of the extremely popular Colombian singer is the entry of two of her new songs into the top of Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs, something that only reached Selena Quintanilla in 1995.

The “Bichota” became the second woman in history who has managed to have two songs in the privileged top of the Billboard list with “Mamiii” and “Provenza”, which were located at positions 1 and 2, respectively.

It should be remembered that this achievement had only been obtained by Selena Quintanilla with the songs “Tú Solo Tú” and “I Could Fall in Love”, which reached the same positions in the count for the month of September 1995.
