Ahead of his new album KG0516Karol G dropped by Jimmy Fallon’s late night show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, to create his new song, “El Barco”. Prior to her performance, she spoke with Fallon about her stage name and revealed that she was a Backstreet Boys fan.
“In Colombia we knew them a lot,” said Karol G. “I was so in love with Nick [Carter]. He was so hot! You know what BSB, Karol G is a huge fan of you. Unlike *NSYNC, BSB is still together, so maybe this cross-collaboration could happen in the future.
Instead of opting for one of his current singles like “Bichota” or “Location”, Karol G performed his new song “El Barco”. After her ballad “Ocean,” where she professed her love for Anuel AA, the choppy waters she sings about in “El Barco” appear to lend credence to recent reports that the couple are broken up. None of them have yet publicly responded to these reports.
While performing “El Barco”, Karol G had a special guest with her, Lenny Santos from the hit bachata group Aventura. He played his guitar on his own little boat while Karol sang from his boat. During the show, a couple danced on the docks to the sound of bachatón bop by Karol G.
Karol G’s KG0516 the album will be released late tonight (March 26). The album will also feature her Latin Grammy-nominated worldwide hit “Tusa” featuring Nicki Minaj.
