Not too long ago, Billboard Latin Music Week welcomed 2x Latin GRAMMY award winner, Sebastián Yatra (@sebastianyatra), for the “Star Q&A.” The conversation with the Colombian singer-songwriter known for pushing the boundaries of Latin pop music was moderated by singer-songwriter, Lasso, who Yatra befriended and recorded a remix together for the song, “Ojos Marrones.”
Billboard Latin Music Week “Star Q&A”
During the “Star Q&A,” the multi-talented hitmaker spoke about his musical journey, the success of his critically acclaimed single “Tacones Rojos,” and the advice he received from his parents that still resonates with him. He highlighted his childhood move to the United States from Medellin, Colombia, and his decision to sing in Spanish. The multiplatinum composer also shared behind-the-scenes details about the composition process, sources of inspiration, his video directing contributions, including his latest music video for the single “Energía Bacana,” and more intimate topics like mental health and handling fame.
Lasso & Sebastián Yatra
Yatra stated, “Being human is what really transcends anything and enters people’s hearts, and what really gives you a meaning and a purpose for doing this.” Regarding what’s next, Yatra joked about maybe recruiting Lasso, Peso Pluma, Guaynaa, and Karol G to one day start a pop band – watch clips from the panel here (1) & (2).

At the end of the panel, Yatra also announced and presented his Disney Create100 project, a relationship that stemmed from his Oscar-nominated Platinum® single “Dos Oruguitas” from the movie, Encanto, which he also performed on the prestigious award show that year.
Most recently, Sebastián Yatra was awarded “Artist Of The Year” at the annual 2023 RIAA Honors – and the 14x Latin GRAMMY award nominee also nabbed another Latin GRAMMY nomination for 2023. His recent single “VAGABUNDO” landed him another Latin Platinum® plaque that was presented live on CBS Mornings television by famed media personality Gayle King while Yatra was in New York for a US Open partnership which saw him win a match on the courts with Carlos Alcaraz and Jimmy Butler (NBA). These recent accolades continue to prove Yatra’s status as a leader in Latin music.
