What caused the malfunction is yet to be revealed.

The Colombian singer won her first Grammy award (2024) - Best Música Urbana Album - for her 2023 record Mañana Será Bonito. It was her fourth studio album. She's also been named the 2024 Woman of the Year in February by Billboard magazine, for which the hitmaker will honoured at the upcoming Billboard Women in Music Awards. The award ceremony will be held on Wednesday, March 6, at the YouTube Theatre at Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. She's also expected to take to the stage for a special performance.

Karol G starred alongside Sofia Vergara in the 2024 Netflix biographical crime drama series Griselda. Taking on the role of the titular character's main confidant, she seamlessly slipped into the retro mood, trading her glitzy hairdos for sombre bangs. Although the 33-year-old has often channelled her acting chops for her music videos, Griselda marked her official acting debut. Despite the year just beginning, 2024 has proved to be a life-changing chapter for her.
