After getting a record deal, Karol G put out songs like “En La Playa,” “Por Ti,” “Dime Que Si,” and “Mil Maneras” almost right away. While she was a student at the University of Antioquia, she sang background vocals for several musicians, including the reggaeton performer Reykon.
Then, Karol G went to Miami, Florida, to meet with Universal Records. However, the record company decided not to sign her because they didn’t think a female artist could do well in the reggaeton genre.

At the beginning of the next year, they said they were together. When Karol G donned a diamond wedding ring at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in April 2019, it was evident that the duo was marrying. But Anuel AA said that his marriage to Karol G was over in April 2021.
