About Ivy Queen
The undisputed queen of reggaeton and a pioneer for women in a genre that is often
dominated by men; the Puerto Rican singer and composer, Ivy Queen, has been one of the strongest and most important figures of the urban genre for more than 20 years. Her road to stardom began when she was 18 years old, since then she was forced to mark a space for her voice to be heard within the genre. His lyrics condemn violence against women, demand respect and empower anyone who has felt oppressed. Songs like "Quiero Bailar", "Que Lloren" and "Cuéntale" have become hymns for a whole generation of young women who found an idol in the intrepid artist. Ivy Queen has been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards such as the Latin Billboards, BMI Awards, People's Choice Reggaetón and Urban Awards and has been a Latin GRAMMY nominee.
