Natti Natasha has traveled from the cold streets of New York City to the sunny 305 in Miami, where she has been invited to be part of Premio Lo Nuestro airing Thursday, Feb. 18 on Univision. Although she's not nominated this year nor will she be performing, Natti is taking advantage of her trip to the Sunshine State to promote her latest new single, "Grind." We caught up with the 29-year-old Dominican artist to get the scoop on her captivating new jam. Here's everything she told us!
