Ever since she was a little girl, Dulce María has been singing and acting. It was during her time on Rebelde, however, that people really took notice of the Mexico City native. The telenovela spawned the group RBD, which to date has made 9 studio albums, including albums in Spanish, Portuguese and English. The group has sold over 20 million albums worldwide, and toured across Mexico, South America, Serbia, Romania, the United States, and Spain. Sadly, the group parted ways in 2008 and since then, Dulce María has been focused on launching her solo career. Here is what the 25 year old had to share.
You are teaming up with Club Papi and Granda Entertainment on a national club tour this summer for the LGBT community in the US. What can fans expect?
I'll be singing songs from the first and second album. I want people to relate to it.
Why did you decide to split Extranjera into two parts?
To give the fans more material, a great price and it's also a way to avoid piracy.
Ya No is the first single from your upcoming album Extranjera: Segunda Parte. What is it about?
It's a cover from Selena, an icon in Latin music. It really is an honor to be able to sing the song my way. This track truly empowers women.
Most know you from your successful time with RBD. How was it to be part of such a phenomenon?
It was a grand experience that gave me so much and opened a lot of doors in a number of different countries. It allowed me to perform in many venues.
Christian and Anahi have gone on to have amazing solo careers. Do you still keep in touch with them?
Yes, I keep in touch with all of them!
