Whether it's singing, dancing -- or her latest adventure -- acting, Becky G always knows how to bring it, even if she needs a little caffeine boost.

"Coffee is great," laughed the 19-year-old during her exclusive interview with AOL.

The young pop star, who was the perfect artist to kick-off iHeart Radio's "Move with the Music" concert series with deodorant brand, Degree, also chatted with AOL about her upcoming debut album, her role models and what new endeavors she has up her sleeve.

"I'm working on re-vamping my style of music," the energetic singer revealed about her upcoming debut album. "As you grow as a person you evolve and as an artist that is one of the most important things you have to go through."

The proud Latina is currently in the studio recording Spanish music and hopes to one day do a Spanish-English crossover project - and would love to collaborate with one of her biggest inspirations in the Latin music industry.

"People like Jennifer Lopez," gushed Becky G. "I love Shakira -- I think she is awesome and amazing."

Another role model? Pitbull. "They're just not big in the Latin world ... it's just as a big of a deal if they were in Mexico or to Spain, it's just they're universal artists."

Another major project she's been working on is her first role in a movie, the new action-packed "Power Rangers," set to release in 2017.

"It's pretty surreal," she said about playing the role of the yellow Power Ranger, Trini. "There's definitely a lot of pressure to do a good job but I feel like I've been doing pretty well!"

"I think that I'll be really proud of me playing Trini once I get to watch the film," said the former "Empire" guest star.

One thing is for sure -- we can't wait to see our favorite childhood heroes come back to life.
