Anuel AA & Karol G Discuss Touring Together, Their First Kiss On Stage & More | BillboardOn February 11, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hi, how are you, family?
We are Annuel AA and Karol G. And you’re watching Billboard. Karol G, Annuel AA, finally together here on Billboard,
how are you? Good, thanks to God. Okay. What is the most exciting thing
about going on tour together? We will not be separated for a long time. Yes, I think it’s the best part
of the tour. Besides, we are touring
in many parts of Latin America, the fact we don’t have to separate
gives us something very special. And we are living the dream we both have,
but together and… Okay, you’ve announced
tour dates in Latin America, but not yet in the United States. Can you tell us a little more
why you started in Latin America? The thing is…
Last year we finished separate tours. At the end of the year
he finished his tour, his first tour in the United States, super successful,
almost at the end of December, and I finished mine
at the end of November. So, in a certain way,
those are markets that are… -that we just toured in a–
-Right. …in a separated way,
but we will start in Latin America… -Right.
-…to see what happens. I mean, there are many dates
we have in Latin America. We cover almost the first half of the year
and we will see what happens -for the half.
-Right. And where did the idea of going
on tour together come from? Who had that idea first? How did that come out? It’s just that we’ve been talking
about this tour for so long. The fact is, “Culpables” is… We were very surprised
by the success of “Culpables”, and more than “Culpables” success, when we started to see
like that love from people– -Yes.
-…about the relationship, and that every time
we did something together people talked about it and everything. It was really nice for us seeing that people were supporting
what was happening here, and somehow it came out that way. Yes, that’s one of the biggest reasons
for which we decided doing the tour. Because the fans kind of went crazy when they started
seeing us together and everything, and all the songs… they’ve been successful, thanks to God… -and yes… we don’t [inaudible].
-And he didn’t let go of me. What is the most you like about each one? You tell me what you like about Annuel
and Annuel, what you like about Karol. I like her heart. But that’s an answer that…
That’s my answer. -It’s the same.
-It’s the same one for the other side. What do you need in the dressing room
you can never miss during this tour? Any item, some candle?
I don’t know, roses, whatever. What things do you like to have
in the dressing room before…? Food. -I eat a lot.
-Yes, and I love grapes. -Right. Hey.
-Yes. Okay. What did you do…?
What was your reaction when you saw Annuel for the first time on a stage
singing live? And the same goes for Karol. When I first saw Annuel
singing live at a concert, I kissed him. That was the kiss everyone saw.
That’s what happened. But actually, that’s what happened
the first time I saw him. It was the first concert
I attended of him. First Karol’s concert I attended
I think it was in Los Angeles. -New York.
-Wasn’t in Los Angeles? -It was in New York.
-No, it wasn’t. Of course it was. Oh, no, you sang there.
Yes, no, we are clear now. Exactly. And, well, it impressed me a lot. I’d never been to one of Karol’s show
and since I was in jail, I couldn’t see
Karol’s career growth all to well. Karol was already famous and huge
when I got out of jail, and I was really impressed
when the show started, people sang all the songs
from top to bottom. I was excited like a little boy. You know fans throw things
on the stage, right? If you were to see
Annuel’s concert as a fan, what would you throw at him?
And the same goes for Karol. Maybe I’d throw him a towel
with my phone number, and my Instagram, and my e-mail. I’d wrap myself like a gift
and somebody throw me to the stage. You both spend your time
dancing on Instagram, you post dances, who is the best dancer? -No, that’s super clear.
-Yes, it’s super clear, honestly. I’m the beast. Him with his steps
and doing rap and everything, I leave that to him. What was the first thing you did
when you arrived in Colombia? We did a lot of things
when we arrived in Colombia. Really, we did so many things… Seriously, we had a great time. Where did you take him for the first time? Let’s see, it’s just that… -Ah, well–
-We went out with family the first night– -To see the lights–
-Yes. It’s just that it is December. December in Colombia
is a super special date. It’s super traditional doing many things and we ride in a car which is traditional… -in our city. Colombian.
-Yes, it’s Colombian. We went to see the lights
and went out to walk in the streets. -We had a great time.
-Yes. Okay, to finish. Why can’t your fans miss
Annuel and Karol G’s “Culpables” tour? Let’s see, first, you need to be consistent
with what is happening. People were actually
the ones who made sure “Culpables” was a success,
and people are actually making “Secreto”… thirty times more successful
than “Culpables”. So, we will bring you a little bit of what you are
listening from us together, but we will bring them visual, and obviously, if you saw something
awesome from Annuel’s tour and if you saw something awesome
on Karol G’s tour, now join that
and put a lot of crazy ideas, a lot of amazing ideas,
an exaggerated production, his dance team, my dance team, we will do…
Really, we have a thing… Starting from the concept of “Culpables”,
we will do something super, super amazing. Yes. Anything else you want
to add to the question? It will be the biggest tour of 2019
and God only knows from 2019 until when.
