People Want Houston To Honor Los Tigres Del Norte With Their Own Day After Beating Cardi B’s Record

Los Tigres del Norte is one band that all Mexican-Americans stan. They have a way of transcending generations and the whole family can go to a concert and jam out. That’s exactly what happened with their last concert at the Rodeo Houston, which broke Cardi B’s record attendance…by six people.

We can all remember the first time we heard “Los Hijos de Hernández” and “Contrabanda y Traiccion.” These songs are just two of the reasons the band is still a force to be reckoned with today.

Cardi B got a crowd of 75,580 people to fill the Rodeo Houston on March 1. She beat Garth Brooks’ record attendance on March 18, 2018 by just three people. The record-breaking attendance is a true testament to the diversity in the Texas city.

Houston even honored Cardi B with her very own day, March 1.

Cardi B was presented with a proclamation after her show announcing March 1 as Cardi B Day. A lot fo people are saying it is because she set a record with her concert attendance but the proclamation outlines the reason for her receiving the honor.

“On the weekend of August 26, 2017, the greater Houston area experienced a life-altering natural disaster. Houstonians dealt with devastating losses due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Through compassionate people willing to serve during this difficult time, Houston has remained resilient in its recovery efforts. Cardi B was no exception and unequivocally expressed her support by mobilizing into action to hose the Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive on September 16, 2017.”

Just 10 days after Cardi B’s record-breaking night, Los Tigres del Norte rolled into town.

If there is any band that can get all of Houston to the Rodeo Houston, it would definitely be Los Tigres del Norte. The norteño band has been rocking out homes and families since 1968 and they show no signs of slowing down, nor should they. They remain as relevant today as they were 50 years ago and for that we salute them as if they are family.

Oh, and they totally beat Cardi B’s record for Rodeo Houston attendance by six people.

That’s right. Cardi B brough 75,580 people to the Rodeo Houston and Los Tigres del Norte arrived with 75,586 of their closest fans. Only six people were needed to officially unseat Cardi B as the most attended concert in Rodeo Houston’s history.

And some people went straight to the Nicki Minaj/Cardi B feud to share their joy with this change.

Dayummmmmm. Rodeo Houston has been hosting some of the biggest names in music lately with a slew of artists taking their shows to Texas’ largest city. Kacey Musgraves, Cardi B, and Camila Cabello are just a few of the names to recently rock the concert venue. They even gave Selena touching and, some would say, necessary tributes while performing in Houston.

People are truly wildin’ out over Los Tigres del Norte beating Cardi B for attendance.

They really did that, though. Like, they legit rolled through, saw what Cardi B did and figured they could outdo her. They did and it seemed like they didn’t even flinch when they performed to the largest-ever crowd at Rodeo Houston.

Some people are flabergasted at how quickly Cardi B lost her title.

How could you really expect a norteño band wouldn’t bring in more people than any other kind of musician in Texas? It is Texas and Mexico is literally right next door. It makes sense that the most beloved band in the Mexican and Mexican-American communities would bring in the largest crowd. It just makes sense, tbh.

Some are even asking Houston if Los Tigres del Norte will get their own day.

Surely, Los Tigres del Norte have done something worthy of a day commemorating them. However, Cardi B was presented her proclamation tied to what she did for Houston following Hurricane Harvey, not just because of her concert size.

So many musicians have made their way through Houston lately and there could be a change to the most-attended concert in the near future. We’ll just have to stay tuned to see what the future holds.

Romeo Santos Streaming Historic MetLife Stadium Concert Next Month

For those who missed Romeo Santos’s historic MetLife Stadium concert in 2019, the king of bachata is going to release the show to streaming next month. The former Aventura frontman will also release a documentary on his meteoric rise.

Romeo Santos broke many records for his MetLife Stadium concert in 2019.

Starting with the announcement of his MetLife Stadium concert, Santos broke record after record. First, he became the first Latin artist to headline the massive New Jersey Stadium. After tickets went on sale, Santos became the first Latin artist to sell out the venue.  When the concert kicked off on Sept. 21, he then broke the record for the highest-grossing show in the stadium’s history. Before Romeo, the top-grossing record belonged to the Irish band U2.

Aventura and Cardi B joined Romeo Santos during that show.

Santos’ MetLife Stadium concert was not only historic for the records. The concert was also major for his reunion with Aventura. The guys came back together to perform “Inmortal” live from Santos’ Utopía album. That night Cardi B also joined Aventura to perform the band’s classic “Obsesión.”

Fans can see the MetLife Stadium show and a Romeo Santos documentary next month.

Santos is teaming up with Sony Music Latin, Endeavor Streaming, and iNDemand to release Romeo Santos: Utopía Live from MetLife Stadium on June 25. On the same night, Santos will also release his documentary Romeo Santos: The King of Bachata. Fans can buy their tickets to both pay-per-view events on his official website.

“These films have been such a special project for me and I’m honored and eager to show it to the world and pull back the curtain on the history of bachata,” Santos said in a statement. “For the film to showcase my upbringing and build up to my performance at MetLife Stadium, it gives me the opportunity to relieve one of the most incredible nights of my life while also bringing it inside the homes of my fans across the world.” 

Guests appearing in the films include Daddy Yankee, Emilio Estefan, Marc Anthony, Tommy Mottola, and Thalía. It’s because of that iconic MetLife Stadium show that Santos is nominated for Latin Touring Artist of the Decade at this year’s Pollstar Awards.

Yes, Beyoncé Really Did Run Into Selena Quintanilla At A Mall Back In The Day

Part 2 of Netflix’s “Selena: The Series,” is currently streaming, which means fans of the late Tejano singer are getting a chance to learn more about her origin stories. In the second part of the series, fans can expect to see more of the icon’s tragically brief but beautifully successful life. The new episodes chronicle Selena Quintanilla’s rise as a superstar and will no doubt make fans of the singer feel a deep sense of love for her.

Particularly when it comes to one episode in particular!

Part 2’s episode 6, called “Lo Más Bello,” sees the lives of two superstars collide.

The endearing episode sees Selena, played by Christian Serratos, on a shopping trip to an outdoor mall with her mother and sister. It’s then that the young singer catches the eye of a young girl who is also with her mother and sister.

Perhaps it’s real seeing real, but in either case in this episode, the young girl stops to gaze at Selena. She’s star-struck. In the episode, the young girl’s mother asks who she’s looking at and the girl replies, “Selena, a famous singer. Be quiet!”

Knowing that her daughter is a singer herself, the mother encourages her to introduce herself. Of course, the young girl is too shy to say hello but she does wave.

When Selena walks away, the young girl’s mother reveals a fun twist when she says “Beyoncé Knowles, you better learn not to be afraid of people if you ever want to be famous too.”

Like we said…

Real recognizing real.

While it might seem like the producers took creative liberty, it turns out they actually didn’t. And it makes sense. Fans of Selena and Beyoncé know that the two singers are Texan-icons.

In a recent interview for MTV Trés, Beyoncé revealed that she actually did see Selena, in the Galleria Mall in Houston. “I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity,” Beyoncé said in an interview for MTV Trés back in the day. “I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas I heard her on the radio, and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

Fans of the Texan starlets might also remember how Beyonce, in a 2007 interview with People en Español, spoke about her love of Selena.

At the time, Beyoncée was celebrating her re-release of six Spanish-language tracks. “I listened to Selena all the time” she recalled at the time of the interview. “She’s close to me because of where I’m from.”

Both “Selena: The Series” Parts 1 and 2 are streaming right now on Netflix! Check them out!
