Colombian star on the rise Karol G brought her Road to Innovation Tour to L.A. on Nov. 6. The reggaetonera brought down the house with her hits at the Avalon Hollywood nightclub. Karol also provided plenty of girl power moments during the concert that felt like a victory lap for her following a breakthrough in 2018.
After releasing her debut album Unstoppable at the end of last year, Karol G has been on the up-and-up since then, banking multiple top 10 hits on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart and garnering two Latin Grammy nominations this year for Best Urban Song ("Mi Cama") and Best New Artist. She previously toured the U.S. with the Unstoppable Tour at the beginning of the year and returned thanks to Nissan and K-Love 107.5 FM with the Road to Innovation Tour. Having had the chance to see both tours, there was a lot more confidence and pep in her step on this latest trek.
Karol G brought fellow Colombian and reggaeton star Reykon with her as a special guest and he opened the show with his hits like "El Chisme" (The Gossip). The lady of the night then appeared and strutted onstage through her hits like "Pineapple," "Casi Nada" (Almost Nothing) and "Hello." She also changed up the arrangements of some of her songs like adding a swaggering intro to "Ahora Me Llama" (Now He Calls Me) where she rapped Bad Bunny's guest verse, an acoustic intro to the heartbreaking "A Ella" (To Her) that allowed her to flex her vocal prowess and an unplugged snippet of her latest single "Créeme" (Believe Me) sans Maluma.
As stamped on her Unstoppable CD, the #GirlPower was high-wattage during the show. Karol G shouted out the ladies in the crowd before singing her Mau y Ricky collaboration "Mi Mala" (My Bad Girl) and her female guitarist amped-up all of the songs throughout the night, including that aforementioned "A Ella" intro. Karol also brought out another woman, Venezuelan artist Lele Pons, who performed her single "Celeso" (Jealous) in a surprise moment. Throughout the night, Karol controlled the stage with fierce femininity, especially during the grand finale featuring her sexy and savage smash "Mi Cama" (My Bed).
In Spanish, Karol G said, "There was a journalist that told me how he didn't respect a woman who had made a song about my bed making noise." She added, "'Mi Cama' that brought me to the Grammys and that has me here to sing to you all. It keeps making noise, noise and more noise." Her Road to Innovation Tour was like a promising pit stop on what's sure to be a path to greatness ahead for the reggaeton music queen.
