Early life and Career
Gomez was born and raised in the Inglewood, California area, but she spent her early childhood in Moreno Valley living with family. Financial struggles forced her family to sell their home and move into the converted garage of her grandparent's house in Inglewood when she was nine years old. Gomez wanted to earn money to help out her family and began doing work including voice-overs and commercials.
Beginning in 2011, Gomez began releasing remix videos through YouTube featuring her own lyrics rapped on top of popular hip-hop and pop songs. These songs caught the attention of veteran song-writer Dr. Luke who signed Becky to his Sony Music Entertainment imprint label Kemosabe Records. Gomez released "Problem" featuring Will.i.am, which was subsequently remixed into "Problem (The Monster Remix)" for the Sony Pictures Animation film Hotel Transylvania. On May 6, 2013, Gomez released the video for "Play It Again", which serves as the first promotional single from her EP Play It Again, released on July 16, 2013. The EP also features four previously unheard tracks - "Can't Get Enough", which features Pitbull, "Built for This", "Zoomin' Zoomin'", and "Lovin What You Do." In July 2013, she became the face of CoverGirl. Becky G appeared alongside American singer Jasmine V, on the cover of Latina magazine's February 2014 issue. On April 23, 2014, she released the first single from her debut album, "Shower". The song eventually became her first solo charting entry on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #16. She performed "Shower" at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. "Can't Get Enough", from Play It Again EP, was later sent to Latin radio and received heavy rotation, becoming her first #1 on Billboard Latin Airplay.
