RBD Fans Have Another Chance To Live The Band’s Greatest Moments In A Documentary

In less than five years, six actors and singers went from starring in a Mexican novela to becoming global pop superstars. The cast members were Dulce María, Anahí, Maite Perroni, Christian Chávez, Alfonso Herrera, and Christopher von Uckermann. The group appeared in the novela “Rebelde,” which spawned the musical pop group RBD. Finally, a documentary is coming out that details their rise to superstardom and what it was like living that life.

A new documentary looks into the rise and end of RBD and how these six people changed the lives of millions of people.

The documentary is directed by Pedro Damián, who created the group. The film features clips from “more than 200 hours of unpublished material that portrays the most intimate moments of the band, from its formation to its breaking, and for the first time, we can see a preview of what it will have,” MTV Latin America reports.

Here’s the trailer.

The documentary explores the short-lived musical group. Four to five years as a group isn’t that huge, so for these six people to be able to have so much fame so fast is pretty astounding.

People on social media could not contain their joy over having RBD back, even if it’s just in a film.

Yes, we got emotional too. Watching singer Christian Chávez crying over how much the group impacted young people was so touching.

The film is like a time machine that takes us back to our childhood.

We’ve grown up right along with them.

Too many emotions in just a couple of minutes.

Just imagine how much worse we will be after we watch the entire thing.

Some are wondering when the film will actually be released.

There’s no official word as to when the film will be released but our radar is on.

None of the group members, whom are still performing as solo artists, have commented yet about the documentary.

But who knows, the film could make them want them to get back together.

Pedro Damián, the director of the movie and creator of RBD, has already launched a new novela that he hopes has the same success.

It also looks like Cristian Chavez will be in the new novela, and the prototype of the show (and group) will be just the same as “Rebelde.”

The new RBD-inspired novela is called Ponte Like.

But there’s no way in hell this new group will ever replace RBD.

Christina Aguilera Will Release A Spanish-Language Album And OMG I’ve Been Waiting For This Since ‘Mi Reflejo’

@MrNickLocke / Twitter

This month marks 20 years since Christina Aguilera released “Genie in a Bottle,” and the artist is celebrating a new milestone this weekend: “The Xperience” opening show of her Las Vegas residency. It was at her Vegas residency that Aguilera dropped some highly anticipated news that is making fans flip out with excitement.

“Let us not forget,” Christina Aguilera told her fans. “The Latin album is coming.”

@idolator / Twitter

It seems that Xtina is raising a family, enjoying her residency in Vegas and working on a new album… in Spanish.

“I want to do it the right way,” she tells Billboard.

@billboard / Twitter

“I’ve been wanting to do it for years,” she told Billboard. “But I want to do it the right way. I want to work with musicians and beautiful people from the Latin world who just eat, sleep and breathe it, and live it, and learn from them. I want to really experience it from the ground up.”

Fans are already trying to help Xtina out with some references.

@NBCTeamShakira / Twitter

Twitter user @NBCTeamShakira called out Aguilera with a little suggestion, “Hey @xtina… Call @shakira to help you with your Spanish Album. She is a producer, songwriter, and singer. She has 12 Latin GRAMMYs and 3 GRAMMYs. It’s the biggest female name in Latin America, and the fans dream of their collaboration. Powerful women. #XtinaAndShakira”

And a hashtag was born. #XtinaAndShakira

Demi Lovato might have been her No. 1 stan at the show.

@ehadshealth / Twitter

Lovato filmed nearly the entire performance on her Instagram live, including selfie videos of actual tears running down her face. Fans are now wondering if Lovato will be featured in her new album.

In case you forgot, Aguilera released “Mi Reflejo” in 2000 and Latinos had a moment of representation in mainstream pop music wept.

@cammcma / Twitter

Aguilera’s “Mi Reflejo” won the Bet Female Pop Vocal Album Latin Grammy and has been promising a follow-up album for a minute now. Why the hold-up?

Aguilera revealed that she’s starting to take Spanish lessons.

@RARESTXTINA / Twitter

“I always heard my parents speak it in the house, but I never fully learned [Spanish],” she tells Billboard. “I’m even digging in and trying to start the lessons.”

“It’ll take a little time balancing the show and the recording hours, but it’s coming.

@morganhoneyb / Twitter

Fans have heard this before and are jaded by false promises. Others, however, have high expectations.

This fan who experienced #TheXperience first hand predicts a new Latin Queen.

@levolti / Twitter

Unquestionably, J.Lo has sat at the throne for decades now. This is the “Game of Thrones” chisme we deserve.

Other fans are already opening space in their hearts for a Latin tour.

@JeanCDeLuca / Twitter

Latin America has been waiting for a tour for far too long, and @JeanCDeLuca predicts Aguilera will grace the diaspora in 2020.

We’ve moved past asking when the album will drop to begging for the tour.

@SERGIOTHEHUMAN / Twitter

We’re blasting @SergioTheHuman’s request from the rooftops in the hopes that Aguilera will hear her fans. Her Spanish language album success has only marinated into stronger cravings for more content.

Obviously fans wan a headlining performance at the Latin GRAMMYs.

@paige_t / Twitter

The biggest question folks have right now is: who will be on the album? So far, Christina has only alluded to the album being in the making.

Those ride or die fans are already making threats in exchange for live music.

@GottaLoveXtina / Twitter

Cuidado, Xtina! Your Latino stans need you more than you know.

Needless to say, fans are shooketh by the whole Xperience.

@EmanuelGtrz / Twitter

As the summer goes on, who knows what else we’ll learn from Christina’s own mouth. We hope she’ll practice her Spanish with the audience.

As J Balvin Is Taking Over The World, Why Aren’t People Talking About Maluma

As J Balvin Is Taking Over The World, Why Aren’t People Talking About Maluma

jbalvin | maluma / Instagram

So far 2019 has been a breakout year for Colombian megastar, J Balvin.

He is not only one of the hottest acts in Spanish-language music but across the entire music industry.

At Coachella, he delivered one of the most talked about performances in a star-studded lineup and even gave a shout out to classic reggaeton.

Like if J Balvin isn’t a Coachella headliner next year, trust that #BoycottCoachella will be a thing.

He’s been all over US talk shows and he’s announced a North American tour with Lyanno and Eladio Carrion.

His summer tour is going to be one of the highlights of summer. I already know.

And after this weekend, the Colombian made history becoming the first reggaetonero to appear on Saturday Night Live.

The singer performed alongside the likes of DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, SZA, and Lil Wayne.

Performing with a star-studded lineup, J Balvin was there to represent.

That Saturday Night Live stage was pure party mode and we were totally living for it.

And obviously, he didn’t disappoint us, repping the Latino community by singing in Spanish on the main stage.

In a country where all too often Latino voices aren’t heard and speaking Spanish can even land you in an ICE detention center, this was everything.

Basically everyone who was watching his performance on SNL.

I know because this was me.

There’s already a growing chorus of J Balvin fans demanding he gets his own set next season.

And we are stanning.

The 34-year-old singer though already has a busy lineup ahead. This summer he’ll become the first Latino artist to headline Lollapalooza in Chicago.

J Balvin is living his best life.

And I am absolutely living for him.

But as a diehard Maluma fan, I have to question why just him?

Credit: maluma / Instagram

Maluma has been pumping out album after album with hit after hit and yet he’s just not getting the attention he deserves.

The two are this year’s best bromance.

They’re both from the city of Medellín and both built their careers up from the likes of Daddy Yankee and Shakira.

And that’s all great, but where is Maluma’s hype?

I mean everyone remembers how he was completely ignored at the Met Gala, right?

Despite being one of the absolute best-dressed guys there.

And with the release of his new album, “11:11”, history seems to be repeating itself.

Credit: @SantiRios09 / Twitter

This is an abomination. Maluma has morphed from Pretty Boy to Dirty Boy. He’s got collabs with Shakira, Annita, and Madonna. And J Balvin! And he is pure fire.

Even his summer bop with Becky G isn’t getting much love.

Why? How is this even possible?

This isn’t taking away from J Balvin in any way, but Maluma is also the total package and I for one think there is enough room for both reggaeton superstars.

Credit: @xtaniayvette / Twitter

So yea…can we make sure that we all get back to talking about the “Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy” and make sure that Maluma has as epic a year as J Balvin?

I’m hoping that this is just a phase and that 2019 is going to be an epic year for Maluma.

Aside from partnering with major brands, he’s also starting to embrace more social messages in his songs and videos.

Plus he’s got his new album out, “11:11” and he’s got collab after collab going down. I mean everything from Fifth Harmony and Shakira to Madonna and Marc Anthony. Most recently he teamed up with Lil Pump and XXXTentacion for “Arms Around You” which gave the superstar his first Top 40 entry and highest-charting hit yet.
