Congratulations are in order for Latto after winning her first BET Award at the just concluded 2022 ceremony.

Latto won the ‘Best New Artist’ over Baby Keem, Benny The Butcher, Muni Long, Tems and Yung Bleu.

She first appeared on the reality television series The Rap Game in 2016, where she was known as Miss Mulatto and won the show’s first season but later turned down the deal.

After releasing her 2019 single “Bitch from da Souf”, Latto signed with RCA Records. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2020, peaking at number 95. It was accompanied by a remix by rappers Saweetie and Trina. In 2020, Latto released the follow-up single “Muwop” (featuring Gucci Mane).

Both songs were certified platinum and appeared on Latto’s debut album Queen of da Souf, which was released in August 2020 and as a deluxe edition in December 2020.

Latto’s mainstream breakthrough came with the release of “Big Energy”, the lead single from her second studio album 777 (2022). Latto’s highest-charting single to date, the song peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100.

Latto received nominations for Best New Hip Hop Artist at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards and Top Rap Female Artist at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. She was named to the “XXL” Freshman Class for 2020. She was named MTV Global’s Push Artist of the Month in February 2021.
