Born in Cádiz, Andalucía, Spain, on February 13, 1979, La Mala rose to prominence in Seville’s 1990s hip-hop scene on her growling raps and “bad girl” persona.
As her career developed, Mala moved to Madrid and released her first album “Lujo Ibérico” in 2000. The album’s hit “Yo Marco el Minuto” put her on the map. It’s kind of freestyle.
In 2003, the video of “La Niña” from “Alevosía was banned for its depiction of a young girl dealing. The bad girl keeps growing up and it turns out she’s not so bad after all. Know what I mean? Anyway you work with what you got and Mala is real. She’s an international star now.
Her song “No pidas perdón” won the 2010 Latin Grammy for Best Urban Song. Her 2012 album “Bruja” won Best Urban Music Album.
Mala is bad, but she’s not bad, but her latest album really is “Mala.” This outing is more reggaeton.
