Gloria Trevi and Alejandra Guzmán, two singers who are known for being kick-ass, assertive women, debuted a brand new single and music video together titled “Cuando Un Hombre Te Enamora.”

While the song itself is definitely pop, and a departure from the heavier stuff than they’re known for, the music video itself is pretty edgy. Billboard reports that the video was filmed in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, and was directed by Alejandro Pérez.

The storyline is kind of like a telenovela, in the sense that it features a love triangle. Think of “Dos Mujeres, Un Camino,” but with better clothes.

The two women text the a**hole (played by Rafael Amaya of “El Señor de los Cielos” fame) who has been playing both them and tell him to meet them in the desert. The guy clearly knows that both women know about each other, but goes to meet them anyway.

Before Guzmán and Trevi confront the cowboy, they bond by dancing in the desert.

Seeing these two ladies dancing together is so crazy… in a good way!

When the guy finally does show up, the ladies try to poison him!

This needs to be a telenovela ASAP! There’s too much drama to inhale in 4 minutes. If you’re not familiar with these wild ladies, let me give you a brief refresher on who these talented artists are.

Alejandra Guzmán made her debut as a singer in 1988, and she really changed the game for female artists in Mexico.

She released 14 albums since then and isn’t slowing down by any means.

In Mexico, Guzmán is considered as bold and as outspoken as Madonna.

One of her big hits, “Hacer el Amor Con Otro,” which translates to “making love with another,” was very controversial back when it was released in 1991. Female artists rarely sang so openly about sex.

Gloria Trevi is also a breakthrough artist, and is considered one of the most risqué female singers.

Trevi made her debut one year after Guzmán, and right off the bat, you knew she was unlike anything you’d ever seen before.

Her sound drew influences from hard rock and her look matched her intense music.

She wore her hair teased up high and had tattered clothes. She was basically every mother’s worst nightmare, which is why little girls idolized her.

For decades, Guzmán and Trevi proudly showed off their rough edges.

They were assertive and didn’t back down when it came to singing about taboo subjects. It makes so much sense that the two women responsible for bringing feminism to Rock en Español would team up for this new song.

Billboard also reports that the two ladies will be releasing a joint album titled “Versus,” and will also go on tour together in June.

Amazing!

Mon Laferte Talks Regional Mexican Album ‘Seis’ and Singing With Gloria Trevi

Mon Laferte Talks Regional Mexican Album ‘Seis’ and Singing With Gloria Trevi

Chilean singer-songwriter Mon Laferte is back with her new album Seis. Across the 14 tracks, she tackles various regional Mexican music genres while enlisting the support of local legends like Gloria Trevi and Alejandro Fernández. That alternative edge that Laferte is known for is still present. In an interview with Latido Music, she talked about her inspiration for the album and the stories behind a few of the songs.

Chavela Vargas was a big inspiration for the album.

Laferte is from Chile, but she’s lived most of her music career in Mexico, so these sounds are familiar sounds to her. Another famous Mexican transplant, Costa Rica-born Chavela Vargas, was a major inspiration for Seis.

“She was a very free woman,” Laferte tells mitú. “I admired her freedom and her gall. She didn’t care what anyone thought. She was who she was. She sang her songs with heart and soul. She left her life in every song.”

There’s even a banda moment on Seis.

Regional Mexican music is heard around the world, especially in Chile. Before moving to Mexico, the sound of the country was part of Laferte’s childhood. She dabbled in banda music for the first time in “Se Me Va A Quemar El Corazón” with Banda El Limón De René Camacho.

“This album is an homage to Mexico, so it had to have a bit of everything that the country is known for,” Laferte says. “It was very important for me to represent banda music on this album. The truth is banda has always been interesting to me.”

“La Mujer” with Gloria Trevi

In a highly-anticipated moment on the album, Laferte teamed up with Trevi for “La Mujer.” She reveals this was a heavily requested collaboration by both their fan bases. In the incredible music video, Laferte and Trevi dance together in front of a giant vagina. The girl power here is everything.

“Gloria is someone who I have always admired since my childhood,” Laferte says. “She’s always been an inspiration to me because she’s a powerful woman too. She’s like Chavela. She’s a woman that rose from the ashes. We were practicing the choreography for the music video and I had so much fun with her. She was just as I imagined she would be.”

During the interview, I blurt out that this was a big moment for their fans in the LGBTQ+ community. “It’s a big moment for me too!” Laferte says with a laugh. “[To my fans in the community] I send them big kisses, a lot of love, and give them my thanks for listening to my music and for all the support.”

“Esta Morra No Se Vende”

Another girl power moment on the album is “Esta Morra No Se Vende.” Laferte is living her best Norteña life in this song that speaks to overly-advertised consumerism. She even lets out a grito to boot.

“That was one of the last songs I wrote for the album,” Laferte says. “Now with what’s happening with social media, this is an ode to ostentation. That I have expensive things. That I have this. That I have that. I believe that’s the reality that me and many other women face. You’re not going to buy me with your money, or your likes, or your numbers of any kind.”

“Que Se Sepa Nuestro Amor” with Alejandro Fernández

“Que Se Sepa Nuestro Amor” was the first single from Laferte’s Seis album. With Mexican music royalty, Fernandéz, she has a mariachi music moment. Even though the artists haven’t been able to meet face-to-face, they came through with a dreamy duet.

“When we recorded the song, we were at the beginning of the [COVID-19] pandemic,” Laferte says. “When we were very closed-off and didn’t go out. It was all done from a distance. He was very nice and very professional, but we didn’t see each other. Till this day we haven’t seen each other in person but only through technological means. He’s very cool. Very sweet. He has a beautiful voice.”

“Aunque Te Mueras Por Volver”

One of the most striking songs on Seis is “Aunque Te Mueras Por Volver.” This is most similar to the alternative drama that Laferte has served before in her greatest hits. If there was ever a need for a James Bond theme song in Spanish, this would be the perfect fit.

“The song was inspired by cinema like James Bond and all that,” Laferte says. “It also has that spirit of the music from the time of Frank Sinatra, Raphael from Spain, and José José from Mexico. Like that orchestral era with beautiful voices. The lyrics are the story of my life.” With a smirk, she adds, “Aunque te mueras por volver, but you already lost your chance.”

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Puerto Rican singer Dalex is back to his Latin R&B roots with “Feeling“, which is about leaving behind that relationship that made you question everything, including changing who you are to please the other person.

Produced by Dimelo Flow, “Feeling” not only does it get deep about leaving behind what no longer serves you, but it is also packed with punchlines like “Te olvide como El Chavo, sin querer queriendo“.

In our interview for Latido Music by mitú, Dalex talked to us about the feeling he wanted to convey with the song, singing about heartbreak instead of his usual songs that tend to be more intimate.

Watch out interview below:

In “Feeling,” Dalex wants to explore other sounds and try doing a more commercial record that more people can relate to.

The colorful music video was shot in Miami, directed by Adrián Arredondo for Wildhouse Pictures. Dalex and his love interest are seen riding around dirt bikes, which we later found out in the interview was one of his Top 5 Feelings.

Watch the music video below:

Dalex has a busy 2021 ahead, and “Feeling” is the first single from his upcoming album due this year. The Rich Music singer told us that he has a collab with Reggaetón heavy hitters Wisin & Yandel and Zion & Lennox on the way, as well as an American singer which for now he can’t reveal, but we can’t wait to find out.
