She is one of among the very popular Mexican teen stars to become famous at a very young age. Rebecca has two brothers and a sister making her the middle child in a way.
Their family was in abject poverty and Rebecca began taking responsibility at a very young age and began doing part-time jobs locally and gigs in the music industry such as voice over’s. She was partly home-schooled because she faced a bullying problem in the public schools she attended. She knew by age 9 that she had to take a decision as to her career choice because she did not have adequate financial support from her family. Becky calls this her mid-life crisis which led to her making music a career choice.

She analysed her opportunities, made herself aware of her strengths and weaknesses and decided to sing for a living. This decision helped her to be clear in her life goals and she even learned the guitar by teaching herself at the age of 13. This was an added bonus as she started a YouTube channel to cover some songs and the fact that she could play the guitar as well worked in her favour.

When she was 13, she did a cover of the song ‘Otis’ along with a production group called the “JAM” Working with this production group was probably the best decision Becky would take as her cover of the song went to the attention of Dr. Luke a famous producer who immediately signed her on to his portfolio. He later mentioned that he signed her before she had showcased her abilities to play the guitar and her songwriting capacity.
While working on her debut album, Becky released her first single in collaboration with will.I.am titled ‘Problem’ for the hit movie Hotel Transylvania. On April 8, Rebecca realised her lifelong dream when she released her first official single on her own called ‘Becky from the Block’. This song was heavily inspired by the popular Jeniffer Lopez song ‘ Jenny from the block’ and as such, Becky made a music video to accompany the song which started Jenifer Lopez and was shot in Becky’s own neighbourhood.
Her mainstream success was due to her releasing the hugely popular ‘Shower’ on April 23 in 2014. She also opened for Katy Perry on certain dates of her tour. Rebecca made a stand for her people by releasing a song for the Mexicans titled ‘We are Mexico’
