About Kany García
Singer-songwriter Kany García’s career almost ended before it began—after a successful audition for the reality competition Objetivo Fama in 2004, she suffered a near-fatal car accident.
∙ García’s Platinum-selling 2007 debut album, Cualquier Día, spawned three No. 1 singles in her native Puerto Rico and earned her four Latin Grammy nominations (and two wins).
∙ From 2009 to 2016, she had six straight LPs reach the Top 5 of Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart, with Kany García and Limonada both hitting No. 1.
∙ Reggaetón MC (and fellow Puerto Rican) Tego Calderón guested on 2009’s Boleto de Entrada, and García returned the favor in 2015, appearing on his LP El Que Sabe, Sabe.
∙ Limonada, the first Latin album ever helmed by veteran pop producer David Kahne, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart in 2016.
∙ Nominated for a whopping 20 Latin Grammy Awards, she’s won four times, including Best New Artist (2008) and Best Singer-Songwriter Album (2019 and 2020).
∙ Created during lockdown, her 2020 album, Mesa para Dos, is a collection of duets with such Latin artists as Nahuel Pennisi, Mon Laferte, Goyo, and Catalina García.
