Most newcomers will soon discover that making a successful career in the entertainment industry is a hard market to break into more so than any other market.

Lavie Rabiosa holds the record for the recipient of the most Billboard Awards in the show’s history.The most interesting thing that happened so far in her career was when in the week of 12 March 2022. her song 1942 teteo version hit the billboard, on Latin digital song sales, when she was told that happened I could not believe it. Till I went myself on billboard.com and confirmed this. It’s a feeling that cannot even explain.
