Early life[edit]

Natalia Alexandra Gutiérrez Batista was born on December 10, 1990[1] in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, where she started her involvement in music. When she was seven, Natasha registered at the school of Fine Arts in Santiago, where she took classes for singing and developed her singing abilities, which she has described as one of the best times in her life. From a very young age, she had admired artists such as Bob Marley and Jerry Rivera, and especially Lauryn Hill, whom she still names as one of her favorites.[3] Natasha also expressed that she has followed and admired Ivy Queen since the beginning of Queen's career,[4] with Queen responding via Twitter: "Thanks for the respect, admiration. That's having class and more than anything intelligence".[5] When she was 18, she moved to the Bronx hoping to make it in the "City of Dreams". There she met reggaeton veteran Don Omar who then signed her to his record label.[6]

As of 2018, Natasha has been a vegetarian for more than three years.[7][8]
