Two iconic Mexican music queens have reunited for a new music video, and we’re still kind of in shock that this is actually happening.
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.
