How Natti Natasha Has Evolved for Her Nattividad Era
NN: As crazy as it sounds, I think I was getting more glammed up while I was pregnant. I felt so full of life, literally. I feel like that moment in my life, being pregnant, changed my whole environment, and I concentrated more on myself. I concentrated on having fun, getting glammed up, and feeling beautiful. I never stopped wearing my lotions at night. I kept on working out, whatever I could do with my belly. I took more care of myself than before, and definitely ate healthy, especially for the baby.
Allure: “Sin Pijama” arguably changed the game for women in reggaeton. What do you think about the impact that song had?
NN: “Sin Pijama” is an anthem. It’s a sexy, sassy song. We dared to collaborate together. At that moment, girls collaborating was like, “Oh no, you guys are competition. Why would you collaborate?” We did that. We broke the stigma. We broke the rules. I will forever be grateful for “Sin Pijama.” It gave me a beautiful sister like Becky.
I love collaborating with other girls. I like to see them feeling empowered. I feel like that’s how us girls are going to keep on being in the game. That’s what keeps the movement up there.
Allure: “Sin Pijama” also became an anthem for the LGBTQ+ community. There are drag queens that perform that song. How do you feel to have a connection with that community?
NN: I’m extremely grateful because they’ve been supporting me since day one. When I make music, I do it for everyone. I feel like that’s important because the same way that I’m supporting women, I’m supporting the LGBTQ+ community. It makes me feel good that they understand the message. That they feel like they’re a part of this. They supported “Sin Pijama” when the song was a huge scandal. People were like, “Don’t you feel nervous about singing ‘Perra en la cama (A bitch in the bed)’?” I was like, “No.” And I remember the LGBTQ+ community definitely backed us up.
