Amara La Negra started her singing career at the age of 4 on the Spanish program Sabado Gigante, where she appeared for six years as the only girl with dark skin. After the performance, she started dancing for popular Latin musicians Tito Puente and Celia Cruz. Later, when Amara was a teenager, she started a group named Amara, but sadly, it was short-lived because they struggled to maintain their unity.

She chose to keep the name Amara and then added La Negra, Spanish for “black girl.” La Negra was added since she was frequently referred to as the group’s “dark girl” by others. She debuted her debut track, AYY, in 2013, and it immediately went viral in the Latin music scene. However, due of her dark skin and Afro hair, she struggled to gain acceptance in the business.

Amara appeared in the TV show Love & Hip-Hop Miami in 2018. Her background as a victim of colorism and discrimination by the Latin community was a factor in the show’s decision to cast her. Her appearance on the show garnered much media coverage and following.

She signed a multi-album deal with BMG shortly after the show’s premiere and simultaneously released the singles “Insecure” and “What a Bam Bam.” The song What A Bam Bam peaked at number eight on Billboard’s Latin pop Digital music sales charts in March 2018.

Amara has performed on numerous occasions since the release of her debut studio album Unstoppable in 2019, including the Hispanic Heritage Awards, 2019 Premios Juventud, and BET Live Experience. She appeared in the movies Fall Girls and Bendecidas the same year.
