How Did Malu Trevejo Achieve Popularity? What Is Her Worth and Who Is Her Boyfriend? 

Malu Trevejo is one of the better-known successes of social media. Many users of the technology, specifically those on Instagram and TikTok (formerly, will be quite familiar with the talents of the beautiful young lady who is known for her amazing dancing and singing abilities. Her videos on these platforms, as well as those uploaded to her YouTube page, garner millions of views.

Additionally, the Cuban-born American has also ventured into the music industry to establish herself as a bilingual pop queen to watch out for. She hopes to follow the footsteps of her idols like Jenifer Lopez and Shakira.

Malu Trevejo’s Life Before Fame

Trevejo, whose birth name is Maria Luisa Trevejo, was born in Havana, Cuba on the 15th of October, 2002. She spent the first few months of her life in the country of her birth before moving to Madrid, Spain with her Spanish father and Cuban mother.

Malu lived in Spain until she was 12 years of age. Around this time, her parents separated and so she moved with her mom to the United States to make a new life for themselves. As the story goes, the young girl had a hard time adapting to her new environment in Miami, Florida. She is said to have experienced culture shock while also dealing with bullies who ridiculed her thick accent and her relatively small stature.

With a desire to make the best out of her relocation to the states, Trevejo taught herself English in record time and quickly got accustomed to the society she was living in. She further took solace in the music of successful Latina artists like Shakira and Jennifer Lopez who later on proved to be inspirations to her career choice.

Her Use of Social Media and How She Became Famous

Social media has given a platform and made celebrities out of many people, of which Malu Trevejo is one of them. She started by first joining Instagram in 2014 and then began sharing videos of her insane belly-dancing skills. While her dancing videos fetched her a ton of followers, the most popular of them all was a video of her dancing to Rihanna’s 2016 hit single, “Work”. The video went viral, helping her garner over 7 million followers on the video-sharing platform.

Malu later extended her influence to other social media platforms such as YouTube and TikTok. On the latter, she gained a reputation for lip-syncing and has amassed more than 2 million followers while on YouTube, over 1.2 million people are subscribed to her channel.

Malu Trevejo’s success has, however, not come without challenges as she has been a victim of bullying and internet trolls. No matter how innocuous her posts are, some trolls would always leave hurtful/rude comments. Some people would also approach her in real life and abuse her to her face.

All this has forced the social media star to abandon regular schooling for homeschooling. This, however, does not suggest that she is letting the haters win. The lady still utilizes her platform to inspire other youths. She also takes practical steps and avoids reading the comments on her posts.

What She Has Earned From Her Various Endeavors

Malu Trevejo is reportedly worth $1 million, a figure she has made mostly from her activities online. Another veritable source of income for the Instagram star is her music. In September 2017, she dropped her first song, “Luna Llena” which has so far garnered 97 million views on YouTube. The song further reached the top 20 of the Billboard Top Latin Chart and achieved platinum status as well.

Following this outstanding debut, Trevejo has dropped other tracks such as “Swipe Dat”, “Hasta Luego”, and “Nadie Como Yo” (a collaborative effort with award-winning Cuban reggaeton band – Gente De Zona). In 2019, she released her debut EP titled Una Vez Mas. The body of work featured four fun-filled and romantic tracks that have received wide play and thousands of digital downloads, thus adding more to her revenue stream.
