(Los Angeles, CA) – Kemosabe / RCA Record’s new artist, 15-year-old Becky G, has just released “Problem (The Monster Remix)” feat. will.i.am, a special remix created especially for Sony Pictures Animation’s new animated family comedy Hotel Transylvania, which will be released in theaters nationwide on September 28th.

Commenting on the announcement, Lia Vollack, President of Worldwide Music for Sony Pictures, said, “We’d heard a lot about Becky from Dr. Luke, and we thought the song would be a great way to end the movie, over the end credits. Fortunately, Becky and Luke agreed – they saw the movie, loved it, and did a special remix of the song incorporating the monster theme especially for the movie.”
15-year-old Becky G signed to Kemosabe, the Sony Music Entertainment record label founded by veteran hitmaker Dr. Luke, and RCA Records last year. Luke signed Becky after viewing a YouTube clip of her swaggering her way through an original rap set to “Otis” from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s album, Watch The Throne. The song opens with Becky declaring: “If everybody’s getting one shot, I ain’t missing.” Born and raised in the Inglewood section of Los Angeles Becky’s family hails from Mexico and she is bilingual. Becky has been working with Jordan Omley and Mike Mani of The Jam, Cirkut, Benny Blanco, will.i.am, Billboard and Ammo, as well as a slew of other producers, on her debut album.
She is currently featured on Cody Simpson’s single “Wish U Were Here,” which went to #1 on Radio Disney, and will share the stage with him at The Staples Center in October, 2012 when he performs with Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen.
