Our Take: Natti presents a refreshing presence in interviews, sharing her personal and professional experiences with an expressive mix of English, Spanish, and busy hand gestures. In her early days in the music industry, hustling for attention in New York City, Natti was blunt. “My parents would call and say ‘Are you okay?’ and I would say ‘Yeah, I’m fine, I’m enjoying it, everything is super good. But not. The reality is that I have no shit, I have no place to live, I have nothing to eat unless people, thank god for helping me.

In fact, if you move to the US market and stop showing love to the Latin market, you are in trouble with the fans.”
Whether Natti will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Shakira remains to be seen.
