HipHopMagz Latin Music Week: Anitta, Natti Natasha, Karol G & Lali to Headline ‘Women in the Lead’ Panel


Latin Music Week is just around the corner, and now we can announce that artists and 2019 Billboard Latin Music Award finalists Anitta, Natti Natasha, Karol G and Lali will headline this year’s “Women in the Lead” panel.

The four singers, who individually represent a new generation of chart-topping female artists redefining Latin music with their distinctive and successful sounds, will join marketing guru Luana Pagani; Universal Music Publishing Group president, Latin America/U.S. Latin Alexandra Lioutikoff; and USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative’s Dr. Stacy Smith.

“Our ‘Women in the Lead’ panel is not only powerful; it is an agent of change,” says Leila Cobo, Billboard’s Vice President and Latin Industry Lead. “We look forward to again having a marquee group of women who make a difference.”

The group of trailblazing women, who join previously announced conference guests Juan Luis Guerra, Wisin & Yandel, Anuel AA, Lele Pons and the Rivera family, will take the stage Wednesday, April 24, for an in-depth discussion moderated by Cobo.

Returning for its 29th year, Latin Music Week features Q&A sessions and panels, including its signature "Star Q&As,” as well as panels focusing on streaming, videos, both mainstream and Latin collaborations and more. Registration to the conference will give attendees access to three days of panels, one-on-one sessions, and showcases, plus tickets to the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which will air live on Telemundo on April 25.
