On October 4, 2004, when the telenovela Rebelde was broadcast in Mexico for the first time, no one imagined the global sensation it would become, much less that it would give rise to one of the most popular musical groups in the history of Latin America: RBD.
For the many millennials who have followed the pop group from the beginning, RBD is a part of their identity. During their five active years, RBD recorded six studio albums in Spanish and their songs were then translated into both English and Portuguese. With each new album, they managed to consistently top the charts, win numerous awards and, above all, forge a permanent place in the hearts of all their fans. Now, after 16 years, the RBD catalog is available on Spotify.
“It makes me very happy for all the fans who have been with RBD all these years, and who have fought for this moment,” says band cofounder Anahí. “I am sure it will bring a lot of joy at this time.”
From 2004 through 2009, the band formed by Anahí, Dulce María, Maite Perroni, Christopher von Uckermann, Christian Chávez and Alfonso Herrera played three international tours with more than 860 thousand spectators; broke ticket sale speed records in numbers comparable to shows of the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears in Latin America; and amassed more than 100 fan clubs around the world.
The band achieved worldwide fame with memorable ballads and tracks made to accompany a night out. In addition to Mexico, they rose to prominence in Brazil, Spain, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, the United States, and even Japan, all countries where they obtained multiple gold, platinum, and diamond records.
Despite having separated in 2009, RBD is more relevant than ever in the ears of their fans, who have not stopped listening to them or following their new projects. And now, the songs that marked a generation are on Spotify.
