Listen to Becky G on iHeartRadio

If you haven't heard the name Becky G yet, allow us to introduce you. She sings. She raps. She writes songs. She dances. She's 17. Oh, and did we mention she's just been added to a couple of dates on Katy Perry's Prismatic World Tour? 

Becky G -- born Rebbeca Marie Gomez -- is making waves with her fierce drive, beyond-her-years songwriting skills and her infectious, electric energy. Add to that serious vocal and rap chops and dancing ability, and you've got a bonafide pop star in the making. The popular YouTube cover artist has also toured with fellow YouTuber Austin Mahone and is one of the youngest faces for COVERGIRL. Her debut EP, Play It Again, dropped last year, and a full-length album is slated for a 2014 release.
