Who do you think owns YouTube as a woman? Beyonce? Taylor Swift? Cardy B? Or someone else? Well, this might come as a surprise, but reggaeton singer Natti Natasha is the most-watched woman on YouTube. She is beautiful, sexy, humble, and multitalented. In 2018, she got more than 4.5 billion views alone. So, how much is Natti Natasha’s cash flow?
Born as Natalia Alexandra Gutierrez Batista in the Dominican Republic, she came to the United States as an 18-year old girl. There, Natti started her rise to stardom from the bottom. And she worked hard and persistent to achieve her goal. After many years of rejections, Natti is now a powerhouse in the music industry. As of August 2020, Natti Natasha’s fortune is close to $10 million.
Career Ups and Downs
Before coming to America, Natasha tried to make it in the Dominican Republic. At the age of 14, she composed and recorded her own songs. At the time, she performed different musical acts in her native city, Santiago. There, with her friends, she formed the group D’Style. While they did record some musical themes, they did not achieve the expected results.
Eventually, the group disbanded. Natasha then put a short break and pause on her musical career. In 2010, she signed to Orfanato Music Group for a few songs. In 2010, she released Hold Ya with Gyptian and Don Omar. Natti also got featured in Don Omar’s song Dutty Love. She then worked with Farruko on his Crazy in Love song. Thanks to the success of these songs, Natasha collaborated with Don Omar again.
Her next song with Don Omar is Tus Movimientos. All the songs she recorded with Don Omar made it to his album, Don Omar Presents MTO: New Generation. The album got released in 2012.
At that time Natti was already in the US. But from 2012 to 2017, she did not achieve big success. Following the collaborations with Don Omar, Natasha didn’t get quality projects to work on.
That changed in 2017 Puerto Rican singer Daddy Yankee noticed her. He asked to collaborate on his song Otra Cosa. That song garnered immediate attention and success. She had another instant hit, Criminal with Ozuna. Criminal reached Top Five of the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart. It also earned the title of “most-watched” video overall in 2017.
In 2018, Natasha collaborated with Becky G on her single Sin Pijama. It is Natasha’s second global hit. It peaked at Number 3 on the Hot Latin Songs chart. Within three weeks of release, the song earned platinum certification. And it reached one billion views in just six months. That helped Natti earned the title the most-watched female song of the year.
The popularity helped Natti earned a contract with Pina Records. She also collaborated with Bad Bunny, Thalia, Cosculluela, and many other Latin stars.
On February 15, 2019, she released her debut album, Illuminati by Pina Records and Sony Music Latin. With 15 songs, the album earned platinum certification in 2019. The same year she collaborated with Daddy Yankee again. Other collaborations include Jonas Brothers and Sebastian Yatra.
