Beginnings

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.

 

Career

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.

Peso Pluma Biography

Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija (June 15, 1999), known artistically as Peso Pluma, is a singer and songwriter born in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico. He gained international fame with his hits “Ella Baila Sola”, PRC” and “La Bebé (Remix)”.

 

Early years

Hassan, better known as Peso Pluma, originates from Zapopan, Mexico, and boasts Lebanese ancestry on his paternal side. Displaying a keen interest in music from a young age, he was greatly influenced by the musical environment within his family. During his adolescence, he took up the guitar, deriving joy from performing and singing songs by the renowned Mexican artist Ariel Camacho.

In the subsequent years, Hassan teamed up with his cousins, forming a musical group that included Roberto “Tito Double P” Laija. Together, they collaborated on writing and composing music.

 

Stage Name

Originally, the artist associated themselves with the recreational use of THC feathers and observed a shared slender build among some friends. During a performance at a private event in Guadalajara, fate intervened when they crossed paths with the featherweight boxing champion, Marco Antonio Barrera. Deeming this encounter as a sign from destiny, they embraced “Peso Pluma” as the artist’s stage name. Similarly, the Instagram moniker “La Doble P” is a nod to the initials of this chosen stage name.

 

Beginnings and Career

Peso Pluma embarked on his career with great fervor, sparing no time for rest and seizing every opportunity that came his way. In the span of a year, he released three albums, numerous singles, and collaborations. In February 2020, he unveiled his first live album, titled “Disco en Vivo (en Vivo)”, which received an enthusiastic response from the audience. Just a month later, he dropped his debut studio album, “Ah y Qué?”, which also garnered a very positive reception.

In October of the same year, he released his second live album, “Disco en Vivo, Vol.2 (En Vivo)”, featuring eight songs and a collaboration with Los Plebes de la Cuadra. During that year, he also released the singles “Relajado Voy” and “El Petter”.

In the first quarter of 2021, Peso Pluma released his second studio album, titled “Efectos Secundarios”, marking his fourth overall release. Throughout the year, he collaborated with Jorge Morales “El Jilguero” on “Gente del Cartel” and dropped the singles “Todo es Playa”, “Spiral” and “Por Las Noches”, with the latter propelling him to the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In 2022, Peso Pluma decided to bet on the song “El Belicón” in collaboration with Raúl Vega, which saw increasing success, selling 480 thousand copies in the United States. Concurrently, he participated in the song “Sentosa”, created for the mobile game Garena Free Fire, alongside singers Polo González and Tornillo.

On August 15, Peso Pluma released his collaboration with Luis R. Conriquez, “Siempre Pendientes”, which quickly became a success on Spotify. This achievement solidified Peso Pluma as a new figure in the regional and corridos tumbados genre, according to various media outlets. However, the promotion of the song was surrounded by controversy as some accused the lyrics of promoting drug trafficking, given references to one of the nicknames of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. As a result, the official music video of the song was taken down from YouTube shortly after its release, although it was re-uploaded months later.

“En una Urus me salgo a pasear
Diez camionetas se miran atrás
Cuido la plaza del señor Guzmán
Y al Piyi traigo de anillo de seguridad”.

In February 2023, Peso Pluma achieved another milestone by securing a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list with “AMG”, featuring Gabito Ballesteros and Natanael Cano. The track reached the #92 spot on the chart, serving as a platform for subsequent collaborations with various artists in the following months. This included partnerships with Fuerza Regida on “Igualito a Mi Apá”, Junior H on “El Azul”, Alemán on “Delivery” and once again with Natanael Cano on “PRC”.

Furthermore, on February 27 of the same year, the remix of “Por Las Noches” was released, featuring the collaboration of Argentine singer Nicki Nicole. Consequently, Peso Pluma’s solo version achieved its first individual success in the United States, entering the Hot 100 chart at number 92 weeks after its release.

On March 16 of the same year, Peso Pluma released his song “Ella Baila Sola” in collaboration with Eslabón Armado. The song reached the #10 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the highest-charting regional Mexican genre song in the United States and the second-highest for a Mexican artist, only behind Carlos Santana. Additionally, it became Peso Pluma’s first song to top the Spotify Global 200 chart, making him the first Mexican artist to surpass 30 million monthly listeners on the platform. The next day, Peso Pluma participated in the remix of “La Bebé”, a song by Mexican artist Yng Lvcas, which also secured a place on the Billboard chart at #77.

In March 2023, Billboard magazine included Peso Pluma in its list of the most influential artists in regional Mexican music in the United States, alongside Chino Pacas, Grupo Frontera and Natanael Cano. Towards the end of March, Peso Pluma collaborated with Becky G on her song “Chanel”. In April, he premiered “Las Morras” with Colombian artist Blessd.

Peso Pluma was the guest performer during urban singer Becky G’s Coachella presentation. Together, they delivered a captivating performance of “Chanel”, leaving the audience enthralled.

 

Ella Baila Sola: Pedro Tovar vs. Peso Pluma

Peso Pluma has rapidly achieved significant fame, even making appearances on highly popular television shows like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, aired on April 28, 2023.

However, Peso Pluma’s success has sparked some tensions. Pedro Tovar, the lead vocalist of Eslabón Armado and the songwriter behind the song “Ella Baila Sola”, on which Peso Pluma collaborated, has expressed his disappointment for not receiving the credit they deserve. For Tovar, it’s frustrating to see his group take a back seat while Peso Pluma reaps all the success from their joint effort. It’s important to note that many people are unaware that the single is a collaboration, leading to some resentment within the group.

 

Bizarrap: Music Sessions #55

On May 31, 2023, Peso Pluma teamed up with the Argentine viral producer Bizarrap for “Peso Pluma: Bzrp Music Sessions #55”. Opinions on this collaboration were mixed, with fans and followers of La Doble P considering it one of his best works, while some in the Argentine audience found it to be something different. The Mexican audience takes pride in seeing a compatriot in these renowned sessions and has aimed to surpass the record set by Shakira’s session. As of now, it’s unclear whether they achieved their goal, but what is known is that the singer was thoroughly satisfied with his performance.

 

 

Personal life

As of now, the singer has been successful in keeping his personal life private. In mid-June 2023, rumors began circulating about a possible romantic connection between Peso Pluma and the renowned Argentine singer Nicki Nicole. Currently, he has officially confirmed his relationship with the talented Argentine artist, Nicki Nicole.

 

Controversies

 “The Chapo”

Mexican singer Peso Pluma stirred controversy when he was invited to the 8 MusicFest in Culiacán, Sinaloa. During his performance of the hit song “El Belicón”, an image of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, a notorious Mexican drug lord, was projected. This sparked criticism and accusations of promoting criminal activities. Although the singer denied any responsibility, activists called for sanctions and assurances against repetition. The Culiacán government defended freedom of expression, while the event organizers distanced themselves from any responsibility.

 

Maluma

It all began when Maluma, one of the most successful reggaeton artists, posted a video on his Instagram criticizing the lyrical content of some corridos tumbados artists, including Peso Pluma. In response, the singer posted a series of messages on his own Instagram account, defending his musical style and arguing that corridos tumbados reflect the reality of many people. Peso Pluma also took the opportunity to criticize the content of some reggaeton songs, where women are often sexualized and objectified.

Natanael Cano Biography

Nathanahel Rubén Cano Monge (March 27, 2001), known artistically as Natanael Cano, is a singer and songwriter from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Regarded as a trailblazer in the corridos tumbados genre, Cano has left an indelible mark on the Mexican music scene, being one of the pioneers who introduced and popularized this genre both nationally and internationally.

 

Who is Natanael Cano?

Natanael Cano is a Mexican singer and songwriter, recognized as one of the foremost figures in the fusion genre known as corridos tumbados. His acclaim is built on successes such as “F1”, “Pacas Verdes”, “El de la Codeína” and “Soy El Diablo”. These tracks have not only gained popularity in the musical sphere but have also solidified Cano’s position as an influential figure in the contemporary Mexican music scene.

 

Early Years

Nathanahel Rubén Cano Monge, also known as Natanael Cano, is the son of Rubén Cano and Ciria Monge. He has two siblings: Daneiry and Ángel. From an early age, Natanael displayed a keen interest and innate talent for music. Growing up in an environment where regional Mexican music had a strong presence, Cano was drawn to the world of corridos, a popular music form in Mexican culture. At the tender age of 9, influenced and encouraged by his father, he took his first steps into music by picking up the guitar and starting to sing, showcasing his skills within the family at various gatherings.

The prominent singer Ariel Camacho became Natanael Cano’s source of inspiration, shaping his aspirations and guiding his initial steps into the world of regional Mexican music.

Throughout his time in high school, his affinity for music strengthened significantly, despite not excelling in his studies. While residing in Mexico, he began immersing himself in the captivating world of corridos tumbados, a passion he cultivated while sharing the stage with his peers in impromptu musical performances during the scarce breaks between classes.

The desire to pursue a musical career took deep roots within him, prompting him to make the serious decision to drop out of high school. With determination, he relocated to the United States, hoping to achieve recognition and fame in the music industry. This significant change marked the beginning of his exciting journey in the quest for his place in the international music scene.

 

 

Beginnings

Despite his youth, Natanael Cano quickly gained recognition in the music scene through social media, particularly on platforms like YouTube and Instagram. His unique style, blending traditional corrido with modern and urban elements, garnered him a growing fan base. He soon began making a name for himself in the music scene, gaining notoriety before joining Rancho Humilde, a group with which he began his career. After collaborating with them for a while, he made the decision in 2018 to embark on his solo path.

 

 

Career

In 2018, Natanael Cano burst onto the music scene at the early age of 17 with the release of “El de los Lentes Gucci”. In the following year, he quickly gained prominence with “F1”, a single that surpassed 11 million views on YouTube, solidifying his presence in the music landscape. His ascent continued with notable collaborations, such as “El de la Codeína” alongside Los hijos de García and Herencia de Patrones.

Recognition expanded with the release of his debut album “Mi Nuevo Yo“, featuring hits like “Soy El Diablo”, a collaboration with the renowned Bad Bunny. Songs like “Amor Tumbado” and “Compa Bladi” contributed to the album’s success. In 2019, Cano continued his streak with the release of “Corridos Tumbados”, which included hits like “El Drip” and “El Cazador”, alongside notable collaborations such as “El AK” with Junior H and “Tranquilo Me Han De Ver” with Dan Sánchez.

In the vibrant year of 2020, Natanael left an indelible mark on the music scene with impactful collaborations and shining successes. At the beginning of the year, he joined forces with the Colombian group Piso 21 in the single “Placas Verdes”, marking the start of a series of artistic triumphs. In a landmark collaboration, he took part in the powerful song “Cuenta Conmigo”, alongside various artists: Fuerza Regida, Los Tigres del Norte, and Ana Bárbara. The track successfully secured a position in the top 50 of Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

The pinnacle was reached with the release of “Arriba” on May 5, 2020, a song that stands as an essential pillar in the career of the talented Mexican artist. The lyrics of this track became a phenomenon by incorporating elements from Ed Maverick’s song “Fuentes de Ortiz”, catapulting the single’s popularity and ensuring the sale of over 240,000 copies in the United States. This success earned him the RIAA 4x Platinum certification and positioned him at an impressive #31 on the prestigious Hot Latin Songs chart in the country.

In the latter half of the same year, he released his fourth album, “Corridos Tumbados, Vol. 2”, a collaborative project with renowned artists. During this time, he forged notable collaborations, including partnerships with acclaimed artists like Junior H and Snoop Dogg. This continuous growth and artistic versatility have further solidified Natanael Cano’s position in the music scene.

In mid-2023, Natanael Cano surprised his followers with the release of his eleventh studio album, titled “Nata Montana”. This project stood out for its collaborations with various singers, including Amilkar Galaviz, Tito Torbellino Jr, Hernan Trejo, Chino Pacas, Gabito Ballesteros, Dan Sanchez, Peso Pluma, Luis R. Conriquez, and Junior H. Notably, the album marked a return to the classic style of corridos tumbados, completely stepping away from trap or electronic elements.

Originally composed of 16 tracks, “Nata Montana” experienced an unexpected change when the song “Cuerno Azulado”, which opened the album, was censored on various platforms. In response, the album was re-released, this time including only the other 15 songs. Despite this setback, the album has garnered notable successes, such as “Pacas de Billetes”, “Como es Arriba es Abajo”, “AMG” and “Mi Bello Ángel”. The diversity of collaborations and the return to his musical roots demonstrate the versatility and continuous evolution of the Mexican artist in his career.

In 2023, Natanael Cano left his fans astonished by taking an unexpected turn in his career and venturing into the world of acting. In the series “VGLY”, the talented artist not only immersed himself in the role of an actor but also embodied the character of Lil Vato, adding a new facet to his artistic versatility.

 

 

Personal life

The singer’s love life has sparked curiosity among many people. What is known so far is that Natanael Cano is reportedly dating the American actress Brighton Sharbino. They have been photographed together on several occasions, and the artist has been seen commenting on her photos on Instagram.

Xavi Biography

Joshua Xavier Gutiérrez Alonso (May 5, 2004), known by his stage name Xavi, is a singer and songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona. His ascent to fame was solidified through the success of his notable tracks, “La Víctima” and “La Diabla”, propelling him into the music scene and significantly contributing to his rapid growth and recognition in the industry.

 

Who is Xavi?

Joshua Xavier Gutiérrez Alonso, better known artistically as Xavi, is a singer and songwriter in the corridos tumbados genre. He is the son of Fabio Gutiérrez and Rubi Alonso González. Xavi is the second of six siblings; he shares parents with his brothers Fabio and Chris, and has three younger siblings: Leila and Mia from his father’s side, and the youngest, Oscar, from his mother’s side, completing the family.

He hails from Phoenix, Arizona, United States, but maintains a strong connection to his Mexican roots, nurturing his deep love for music. Despite being born on American soil, Xavi’s Mexican heritage has profoundly influenced his artistic identity.

There is often confusion among people about whether Xavi has a twin brother. However, this assumption is incorrect; Fabio is, indeed, his older brother and shares musical talent with Xavi. Under the artistic name Fabio Capri, he also stands out as a singer, with his most notable success being the captivating song titled “Delirio”.

 

 

Beginnings

Since his childhood, Xavi exhibited a profound interest in music, much like his siblings. While music was considered more of a pastime for the young members of the Gutiérrez Alonso family, for Xavi, it took a more significant turn. At the age of 10, he developed a unique skill by learning to play the guitar, a talent that has accompanied him ever since.

His early encounters with music took place in the community church, but it was alongside his father that Xavi began to explore his voice and perform covers, sharing them on various online platforms. It wasn’t until the year 2020 that his music career officially took off. The track “Vete Ya” marked the beginning of his journey, and from that moment, he started building his presence on social media, carving a name for himself in the world of music

 

 

Career

Independently and over the years, Xavi released a series of singles that captivated his growing audience. Among these gems are tracks like “Te Quiero”, “Ojitos de Miel” and “Zero Sentimientos”, to name a few.

The year 2023 marked a turning point in Xavi’s career, thanks to the TikTok platform, which catapulted his relevance both nationally and internationally. During that period, he dedicated his efforts to creating new singles, culminating in the release of his first album titled “My Mom’s Playlist” as an emotional tribute to his mother. This album offers a unique experience as Xavi pays homage to the songs from his mother Rubi’s personal music playlist. Through this project, he showcased the versatility he possesses as an artist, leaving listeners astonished with his ability to tackle different styles and genres. “My Mom’s Playlist” not only solidified his position in the music scene but also revealed the profound connection between music and family in Xavi’s life.

In the first week of December, the success of “La Víctima” translated into more than 5 million views in the United States, marking a significant milestone for Xavi. This achievement secured his first-place position within the top 10 in the category and an impressive debut at the ninth spot on the Latin Streaming Songs chart. “La Víctima” didn’t stop there, as it also secured the #24 position on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, climbing to the tenth spot by mid-December in 2023.

To date, his most viral track has been “La Diabla”, which, much like his previous works, skyrocketed to popularity on various music platforms and social media networks. Particularly, TikTok played a pivotal role in the song’s virality, attracting content creators who sparked trends, contributing to the track’s success beyond this social network. This phenomenon not only underscores Xavi’s influence in the musical realm but also showcases his ability to connect with diverse audiences through the most relevant digital platforms.

Xavi’s successes have thrust the artist into the spotlight, prompting questions and comments that inevitably draw comparisons to prominent singers like Peso Pluma and Natanael Cano. The uniqueness of his singing and intonation style reflects that this talented artist is destined for a bright future in the corridos tumbados genre.

To date, Xavi has amassed over 27.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify, solidifying his position as an influential force in today’s music scene. Additionally, his YouTube channel boasts a robust following, surpassing 2 million subscribers.

 

 

Personal life

Xavi has mostly kept his personal and intimate life private, creating a veil of mystery around the promising star of “corridos tumbados”. While it is known that his primary focus is on his musical career, details about his current romantic situation remain undisclosed.

 

Accident

Xavi biography

Credits: TikTok

Xavi faced a pivotal moment in his life after a severe car accident, an experience that left a notable scar beneath his lip. The narrative of this physical mark is directly linked to the incident that profoundly affected him: while driving, his vehicle collided, causing severe fractures to various facial bones, including the cheekbones, nose, and forehead.

The gravity of these injuries was exacerbated by the lack of precautions while driving; Xavi wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and the car lacked an airbag. This negligence resulted in devastating consequences for his physical health, leading him into a coma that lasted several days. Potential aftermaths, such as the loss of the ability to sing, walk, and implications on his brain, added an additional dimension to the seriousness of the situation.

Despite this dark chapter in his life, Xavi did not give up. He demonstrated incredible strength and determination to overcome the challenges that arose after the accident. His story is a testament to resilience and the will to move forward.

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.

 

Beginnings

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.

 

Career

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.

 

Controversies

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”.

 

Consequences

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.

 

Beginnings

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.

 

Personal life

Initially, in 1958, Tina was involved in a relationship with The Kings of Rhythm saxophonist, Raymond Hill. At the age of eighteen, she became pregnant with the artist. As a result, her mother kicked her out of the house. When she tried to seek support from Raymond, she did not receive it because he had decided to return to his hometown due to an ankle fracture, leaving everything behind.

With her firstborn son Craig in her arms, Tina had nowhere to live, and that’s when Ike Turner allowed the singer to temporarily stay at his house in East St. Louis. During that time, both artists maintained only a friendship, as Ike was married to Lorraine Taylor, the mother of his two children, Ike Jr. and Michael.

In 1960, Tina and Ike entered into a relationship, and the singer became pregnant with their second child, their first and only child together, Ronald Turner, also known as Roonie Turner. Two years later, the singers got married in Tijuana, and as their wedding night, Ike Turner decided to take Tina to a brothel, where he indulged himself with the ladies working there.

After marrying the singer, that’s when Anna Mae change your name a Tina Turner. Additionally, the artist adopted Ike’s children from his previous marriage, Ike Jr. and Michael.

 

Ike Turner: Physical, emotional and sexual abuse

Tina Turner suffered a series of abuses from her husband, Ike, which started with a beating for refusing to go on tour. These abuses and beatings escalated due to Ike’s cocaine addiction. Additionally, it should be noted that Ike was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

During her marriage, Tina endured everything from sexual abuse to beatings that left her face shattered. Despite it all, she remained silent. On one occasion, she had to be hospitalized with broken bones and third-degree burns after having a cup of hot coffee thrown in her face. The injuries were so severe that she required reconstructive nose surgery due to both the burns and the blows she suffered.

In addition to all of that, Tina Turner had to face the pain of betrayals and infidelities. In 1968, while expecting another child with Ike, she learned that her friend, Ann Thomas, was also pregnant by him, which led her to make the painful decision to undergo a secret abortion. That same year, just before a concert in Los Angeles, Tina attempted suicide by ingesting Valium pills.

In July 1976, after being involved in a violent fight at the hotel where they were staying, Tina decided to end her relationship with Ike Turner. She was a victim of brutal beatings by her husband and managed to escape shortly after their arrival. In that same month, Tina filed for divorce and dissolved the musical duo they had formed together, Ike & Tina Turner.

 

New beginnings: Erwin Bach

After her separation from Ike Turner, the talented singer decided to focus on her solo career and enjoy her time alone. However, in 1985, her life took an unexpected turn when she crossed paths with Erwin Bach, a German music producer, during a party organized by her record label in the city of London. Despite the traumas she had endured in past relationships, Tina made the brave decision to step forward, engage in a conversation, and ask him out. Over time, this choice would prove to be one of the best decisions of her life.

From 1986 onwards, Erwin and Tina began their relationship, and over the next 25 years, their love blossomed. Finally, in 2013, they decided to take their commitment to the next level and formalized their union in marriage, sealing their love officially.

After getting married and living in Switzerland for twenty years, Tina Turner decided to apply for the nationality of that country. In early 2013, she managed to obtain it, simultaneously renouncing her American nationality.

 

Tina Turner’s illnesses

In 2016, Tina was diagnosed with intestinal cancer, and the following year she received a kidney transplant from her husband, Erwin Bach. Turner had faced a series of health issues, including cancer, a stroke, and kidney failure. In addition to that, she suffered from post-traumatic stress due to the abuse she had endured from Ike Turner.

 

Death of her sons: Craig and Roonie
