Biography of Eladio Carrion

Eladio Carrión (born November 14, 1994) is a singer and internet personality. He was born in Kansas, United States and gained popularity on social media through his comedic videos. Before launching his solo career, he worked as a composer and collaborator with other artists. Some of his pre-debut hits were “2×2” with Flowsito and “No quiero más amigos nuevos” with Rawenz. He finally debuted in 2017 with “Me enamoré de una Yal,” followed by other hits such as “Si tú te vas,” “Mi Cubana,” and “Ave María.” Since then, he has collaborated with successful urban artists such as Big Soto, Randy, Zion, Darkiel, Myke Towers, Amenazzy, Rauw Alejandro, Lyanno, Lunay, and Noriel.

Currently, he is considered one of the references in the Latin American trap genre with songs like “Mi Error,” “Se Moja,” “Mi llamada,” and “Animal.”

Family and beginnings

Son of a renowned military man, due to the nature of his work, Carrión grew up constantly moving. He lived in different military bases located in Kansas, Alaska, and Baltimore. At eleven years old, he arrived in Puerto Rico, a country that he initially struggled to adapt to. He was a rebellious young man and had numerous problems in school until he became passionate about swimming, a sport that he practiced seriously and represented the country in the Pan American Games in Guadalajara in 2011. In that competition, Eladio managed to advance to the preliminaries of the 200 meter breaststroke, finishing in eighth place.

Later, the young artist left behind the medals and swimming to focus on his career as a comedian and internet personality. At that time, Carrión regularly uploaded comedic videos to platforms like Vine and Instagram, which helped him gain popularity and become one of the country’s most prominent influencers.

Once he was known thanks to his fans, Eladio took his first steps as an artist by composing and collaborating with various urban genre artists. In 2015, he released his first work in collaboration with Flowsito titled “2×2.” This was followed by collaborations “No quiero más amigos nuevos” with Rawenz and “OG Kush” with Subelo NEO and Jon Z in 2016. These works allowed him to gain recognition and experience in the industry.

Paulina Rubio Biography

Paulina Rubio took her first steps in music at a very young age. At the age of 10, she joined the children’s group Timbiriche, which already had a substantial following in Latin America. Throughout her time in the group, Rubio showcased her talent and charisma, making her one of the standout members. Her voice and stage presence propelled her to fame and provided a strong foundation for her solo career. This ensemble included renowned artists, among them Thalía.

During that time, apart from delving into the musical world, she also ventured into acting. She participated in well-known soap operas and theater productions.


In 1992, Paulina Rubio released her debut solo album titled “La Chica Dorada”, which quickly became a success in Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries. The album showcased a fresh and catchy pop style that resonated with the younger audience. Her single “Mío” became an instant hit, solidifying Rubio’s position as a prominent figure in the world of Latin pop music.

Over the following years, Paulina continued to release successful albums such as “24 Kilates” in 1993, “El Tiempo Es Oro” in 1995, and “Paulina” in 2000. Her music blended elements of pop, rock, and electronic, allowing her to remain relevant and appeal to a wide audience. Songs like “Y Yo Sigo Aquí”, “Ni Una Sola Palabra” and “Lo Haré Por Ti” became pop anthems throughout Latin America.

As her career progressed, Paulina Rubio managed to expand her success internationally. Her 2000 album “Paulina” opened doors in international markets, particularly in Spain and the United States. The song “Lo Haré Por Ti” reached the top of charts in several countries.

In the 2010s, Paulina Rubio continued her musical career with albums like “Gran City Pop” in 2009 and “Brava!” in 2011, which included the popular single “Me Gustas Tanto”. Besides her musical endeavors, Rubio served as a judge on the talent show “The X Factor” in the United States during its second season in 2012. Two years later, La Chica Dorada returned to acting with a cameo in the American dramedy series “Jane the Virgin”.

The most recent album released by the talented Mexican artist is “Deseo”, which saw the light in 2018 and features a special edition. Additionally, in 2022, she had the honor of being part of the judging panel on the show “Mira Quién Baila All Stars”.

Personal life

Paulina Rubio’s personal life also garnered media attention. She married Spanish businessman Nicolás Vallejo-Nágera, known as “Colate”, and later had a relationship with Mexican actor Gerardo Bazúa. With Nicolás, she had a son whom they named Andrea Nicolás Vallejo Rubio.

However, her marriage to Nicolás faced difficulties, and they separated in 2012, leading to a legal custody battle over their son. Throughout the years, Paulina also experienced ups and downs in her relationship with her family and her career.

Following that, it was when the artist entered into a relationship with Gerardo Bazúa, also known as Jerry Bazúa, from which her second child, Eros Bazúa Rubio, was born.

The relationship of La Chica Dorada with her ex-partners is tense, as she maintains that she must financially support her children while they are with their parents and also cover the expenses of both children full-time. On the other hand, the children’s parents argue that their incomes are insufficient, a stance which was acknowledged by the United States court. But that’s not all, as Rubio’s attorney mentioned that the singer is the one covering the expenses of the legal proceedings she maintains with both ex-partners.

History of Yahritza y Su Esencia

Yahritza y Su Esencia (2022) is a regional Mexican music group originating from Yakima Valley, Washington, United States. The ensemble consists of a trio of siblings: Yahritza Martínez (vocalist and acoustic guitar), Jairo Martínez (acoustic bass), and Armando “Mando” Martínez (guitar). Their melodies stand out within the urban sierreño subgenre.


The group “Yahritza y Su Esencia” is formed by the Martinez siblings: Armando is the oldest, followed by Jairo, the middle brother, and finally Yahritza, the youngest sister, who is also the main vocalist of the band. All of them were born in Yakima Valley, Washington, United States, but they have Mexican roots due to their parents, who come from Michoacán and emigrated in search of opportunities in the United States.

From an early age, they grew up immersed in Mexican traditions at home. Their parents passed down their rich culture, allowing them to explore the rhythms of regional Mexican music from its roots. Moreover, their father, who had once been a part of a regional music band while living in Mexico, provided his support and experience in that field.

At the age of 14, the youngest of the Martínez siblings began playing the guitar and delved into the world of social media. It was through these platforms that she shared her talent and her voice, which are now the heart and soul of the ensemble.


One of their most recognized songs is titled “Soy El Único”. The vocalist wrote this song at the age of fourteen, focusing on the theme of a romantic breakup. The inspiration for the lyrics came from the comments she received on her videos, where people shared their own experiences in relationships. The single climbed to the #1 position on the Billboard Global 200 chart, also achieving the prominent #1 spot on the YouTube Music ranking in the United States, and a respectable #5 position on the popularity charts in Mexico.

They gained prominence when a video featuring their music audio went viral on Tik Tok. This achievement drew the attention of influential figures and, thanks to the collaboration of Ramón Ruiz and Alex Guerra from the group Legado 7, the record label Lumbre Music emerged, which currently represents Yahritza y Su Esencia.

After signing the contract, the band released their debut album, “Obsessed”, in late April 2023. The album performed exceptionally well in terms of commercial success, achieving platinum certification in the United States, with sales of 60,000 equivalent units in the country.

In 2023, Yahritza y Su Esencia joined forces in collaborations with prominent artists such as Yuridia, Ángela Aguilar, and Grupo Frontera. These collaborations, particularly with Grupo Frontera, played a significant role in their increasing international popularity. Their strong track record has earned them nominations at various award ceremonies, including the Latin Grammy Awards, Latin American Music Awards, and Premios Lo Nuestro. In the latter, they managed to clinch the coveted award.


The controversy arose in August 2023 when a video of an interview conducted with the group in January of the same year went viral. During the interview, they were asked about their experience in Mexico City (CDMX), to which the vocalist responded: “Yes, I like it, but I don’t like it when I wake up and as I’m falling asleep, because you can hear the cars and the police sirens, but yeah, I do like it. It’s nice here”.

After this, the vocalist hands the microphone to her older brother, who expresses with little enthusiasm his lack of excitement for Mexican food, emphasizing his preference for the food from their hometown in the United States. Then, the microphone is passed to Jairo, who agrees with the opinions of “Mando” Martínez and shares that he has a sensitive stomach and is careful about what he eats.

“For me, it’s also the food because I’m quite sensitive and well… I mostly eat, eat chicken. Ajá. I only eat… wings”.

Apologies from Yahritza y Su Esencia

Following the emergence of this controversy, Yahritza y Su Esencia spoke out. In the company of her brother Jairo, Yahritza Martínez offered apologies to the Mexican people. Although her older brother couldn’t be present, he contributed his thoughts to the subsequent statements.

“Hello everyone, how are we? Ah, we want to send you a big greeting on behalf of Yahritza y Su
Esencia. Unfortunately, “Mando” couldn’t be here with us, but he was indeed part of this message we want to convey to you. Um, so to start, first and foremost, we want you to know that what motivates us every day to write songs and music is the great pride of having Mexican blood in our veins. No matter where we were born, we are proudly Mexican and deeply appreciate the love from the audience, especially in Mexico. Ahm, you always show us so much affection and receive us with so much, much love, and for that, we are grateful, but also apologetic.

We’ve seen the recent comments on social media and we believe you, the audience, are absolutely right. And, well… No, we didn’t express ourselves correctly. Instead of talking about how much we love the country, especially Mexico City, we were discussing some details that were out of place, and we understand that now. Ahm, so we genuinely offer you an apology from the bottom of our hearts. If we offended anyone, that was never our intention. Ah… We love Mexico, our culture, and its people, and we’re honored to be part of that culture. We never wanted to disrespect our land, I swear, it was never our intention.

For us, it’s important to have an honest relationship with you, and that’s why we appreciate you letting us know when something isn’t right or when something you don’t like happens, because that way we can improve. (Jairo:) And really, we love you a lot too and we appreciate all your support, so… Thank you very much. (Yahritza:) And again, everyone, ahm… A thousand apologies on behalf of Yahritza y Su Esencia, a big hug”.


The statements made by the group caused discomfort and offense among many Mexican citizens. They were labeled as “No sabo kids” (a term implying ignorance or naivety), and there were mockeries about their appearance and derogatory comments were made. On TikTok, a trend started where people would hit their speakers whenever a song by Yahritza y Su Esencia played, as a form of protest and criticism.

The repercussions were not limited to reactions. Prior to this incident, Yahritza y Su Esencia had over 5.7 million followers on Instagram, but following the statements, that number drastically plummeted to 718k followers. Furthermore, on their music platforms, their audience, subscribers, and listeners experienced a concerning decrease.

Tina Turner Biography

Anna Mae Bullock (November 26, 1939), known professionally as Tina Turner, was an African-American singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and choreographer. She was born in Brownsville, Tennessee, United States. She is considered the “Queen of Rock” after a fifty-four-year musical career.

Early years

Tina Turner is the youngest daughter of Zelma Priscilla Currie and Floyd Richard Bullock. She lived with her grandparents for much of her childhood and youth as her parents moved to Knoxville, Tennessee during World War II. Her grandparents took her to Woodlwan Missionary Baptist Church near Highway 19, which is now known as the Tina Turner Highway in her honor. They were very religious, disciplined, and strict individuals. Tina attended Flagg Glove Elementary School and continued attending church, this time at Nutbush Hill Baptist Church, where she had her first exposure to music.

For a period of time, Tina returned to live with her parents, but the family situation was never good; her father was a violent and abusive man. When she turned eleven, her mother left them to live in St. Louis. Two years later, her father started a new relationship and gradually distanced himself from his daughters, until the sisters were forced to be taken in by their grandmother in Georgeanna, Brownsville. For Tina, experiencing the lack of love from her mother was a very tough aspect of her life. Tina dedicated herself to studying and balancing her school days with her role as a cheerleader for the basketball team, and sometimes she even played the sport herself.

When she was sixteen years old, her grandmother died unexpectedly, and her mother took her with her to St. Louis. In this city, she was enrolled in Sumner High School and completed her studies in 1958. She then worked as a nurse’s aide at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, with the goal of eventually becoming the head nurse. After some time in the 1950s, she discovered that her sister Aillene had a magnificent voice. They started singing together at home.


Later, Tina suggested to her sister that they should sing in nightclubs. They started frequenting the Manhattan Club, a nightclub in the East St. Louis area, and over the months, Tina and her sister formed a small band. During one of their performances, Tina heard the Kings of the Rhythm band. The lead singer was Ike Turner. On another occasion, Gene Washington, the band’s drummer, invited Tina and her sister to join them on stage and perform a song.

The only one who dared was Tina. With Tina’s astonishing voice and magnificent performance on stage, Ike approached her and they sang a duet. Some time later, Ike offered Tina to join the band. From that moment on, Tina’s musical career took off, and Ike played a significant role in her career. In 1958, Tina made her first studio recording titled “Box Top” with singer Carlson Oliver under the name “Little Ann”.

Career: Iker & Tina Turner

Annie Bullock was already known by the stage name “Little Ann” before being associated with Ike Turner, who was already a prominent figure in black music in the city of St. Louis. In the late 1950s, they formed the duo Ike & Tina Turner, which had a successful artistic career from 1959 to 1973. They released their first songs in 1959, but it wasn’t until 1961 that any of their songs managed to enter national charts. Annie then formed the soul duo with Ike, whom she was in love with.

The duo quickly gained popularity, thanks to Ike’s recognition as one of the finest African-American voices in soul, being a singer who successfully evolved from his blues roots and seamlessly adapted to the rising R&B genre. In just one year, they managed to place three songs in the top 100, and the critics hailed them as the group with the greatest potential and impact of the moment. In essence, Tina Turner’s sexy image, the divinity of her voice, and her stage presence made them one of the best duos of the 60’s.

In 1966, they released the song “River Deep, Mountain High”, produced by Phil Spector, which gained tremendous worldwide resonance. Their subsequent singles topped the charts, and tours followed one after another. However, due to personal issues, Tina realized that her relationship with Ike was not as successful as her music career, leading her to make the decision to separate and end the duo. Her decision was influenced by Ike Turner’s inappropriate behavior, as he was arrested multiple times for drug possession, and his drug addiction had a negative impact on his vocal performance.

Solo career

Tina continued her solo career, but it wasn’t easy for her as she was emotionally devastated. She had a role in “Tommy,” the film by The Who, and recorded the album “Acid Queen”, which had little commercial success. Unfortunately, the same happened with her next work, “Rough” (1979). Fortunately, her career started to revitalize with the support of her sister, and she was invited in 1982 to sing on a version of “Ball Of Confusion” by the group B.E.F., who also produced a rendition of the song “Let’s Stay Together” (1983) by Al Green.

Over time, Tina continued to achieve brilliant success thanks to her talent. She released albums like “Let’s Stay Together” (1983) produced with the support of David Bowie, “Private Dancer” (1984), “Break Every Rule” (1986), “Foreign Affair” (1989), “Wildest Dreams” (1996), and “Soul Kiss” (1998), among others, many of which were Grammy Award winners. This marked Tina’s return to superstar status. With “Private Dancer”, her music was firmly established on the international scene, selling over ten million copies. Her fame continued to grow after she took on a role in the film “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”. Additionally, her single “We Don’t Need Another Hero” was included in the film’s soundtrack.

Another one of her successes was “Break Every Rule” (1986), an album that featured collaborations with important figures such as Phil Collins and Steve Winwood. She later embarked on a fourteen-month tour across various parts of the world. In 1988, she released “Tina Live in Europe”, which featured collaborations with Eric Clapton, David Bowie, Bryan Adams, and bluesman Robert Cray. In 1989, she once again dominated the playlists with the album “Foreign Affair”, which included hit singles like “The Best” and “I Don’t Wanna Lose You” and achieved million-selling status.

Between 1991 and 1993, Tina Turner released the albums “Simply The Best” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It”. In these albums, she maintained her distinctive musical style and iconic image. In early April 1996, she released the album “Wildest Dreams” and embarked on a tour in the United Kingdom. Her next album, “Twenty Four Seven”, was a major success both in sales and critical acclaim, reaching number nine on the Billboard 200 chart. This album marked the beginning of a new phase in her career.

In addition, she embarked on a successful worldwide tour called the “Twenty Four Seven Tour”, which became one of the most prominent tours of the year. During this time, Tina Turner demonstrated that she still possessed an electrifying voice and an inexhaustible charisma to thrill audiences. She embarked on a significant tour across the United States and several European countries.

After several decades of a music career and sixty years of life, Tina Turner announced her retirement in the summer of 2000 while residing in Zurich, Switzerland.

In 2004, Turner released a new compilation album titled “All the Best”, which included her most notable hits and some new songs. This album served as a reminder of her incredible journey in the music industry and was warmly received by both critics and fans.

The year 2008 marked Tina Turner’s triumphant return to the stage with a series of concerts at the famous O2 Arena in London. These performances not only generated immense interest but also proved that Tina’s energy and charisma were still intact. The audience response was overwhelming and confirmed her status as a living legend in the music industry.

2009: Retirement from Performing

In 2009, after concluding her successful “Tina!: 50th Anniversary Tour”, Tina Turner announced her official retirement from music. Although she has made sporadic appearances at special events since then, she has made it clear that she does not plan to tour or release new albums. The following year, Turner attended the opening of a Broadway musical based on her life, titled “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical”. This musical captivated audiences with its powerful storytelling and talented cast, receiving critical acclaim and nominations for several Tony Awards.

During the 2018 Grammy Awards ceremony, Tina Turner received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to music.

In 2019, the singer shared her personal story with the world by publishing her autobiography titled “Tina Turner: My Love Story”. In this book, she recounted her life and career in detail, allowing readers to delve into her triumphs and challenges over the years. The book was well received and became a bestseller.

On March 27, 2021, Tina Turner once again moved her fans as she bid farewell through the HBO documentary titled “Tina”, a work that offers a deep look into her life and career. In this captivating film, the legendary Tina Turner shares her longing to embark on the final and most meaningful stage of her life, where she seeks to find peace and fulfillment away from the spotlight. Furthermore, she courageously reveals that she has experienced post-traumatic stress as a result of the painful abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband and father of her children, singer Ike Turner.
