AFTER AN 11 YEAR ABSENCE, THE MEXICAN STAR JOINED THE QUEEN OF THE URBAN GENRE DURING HER MORE RECENT SHOW IN MEXICO CITY, WHERE THEY BOTH PERFORMED A HISTORIC RENDITION OF THE MYTHICAL BALLAD THAT IMMORTALIZED THE VOICE OF ANAHÍ IN RBD
This past Saturday, June 11, attendees of the ‘Bichota Tour’, the series of concerts starring Karol G, lived a moment that will go down in history of Latin American music, in the middle of the show, the Colombian super star invited another luminary to the stage, Mexican artist and singer, Anahí.
The more than 20 thousand souls present in the Mexico City Arena, exploded with emotion when they saw Anahí on stage. The euphoria reached its climax when both artists performed an emotional version of “Sálvame,” one of the most emblematic ballads not only of the Mexican group’s repertoire, but also of Spanish-speaking pop.
“When I thought of inviting her, I knew she had been away from the stage for 11 years. She’s had a thousand invitations and she accepted mine,” said Karol G, “It’s a very emotional moment for two reasons: one, because I’m a huge fan. Two, because she was very nervous, she didn’t know if people were going to respond to her performance. I told her this moment was going to be so epic that it would not be repeated. That we miss her on stage.”
“For me it has been a tremendous honor to be with you,” Anahí commented. “You know I have been a little far away. For 11 years, I have not stood on a stage, and the nerves are strong. I just want to tell you that you are always in my heart, what we lived together and what we built together will never be forgotten. You are an incredible generation!”
The presentation of both singers was immortalized on video, which is already available on digital platforms and can be seen here. During the special performance, the more than 20 thousand people gathered at the City of Mexico Arena were able to enjoy, amidst an unprecedented euphoria, a new version of “Sálvame,” a generational classic that will undoubtedly remain in the hearts of RBD fans and of the new generations who love Karol G’s music.
“Sálvame” is one of the most iconic anthems of the Mexican group RBD immortalized by the voice of Anahí, which is part of the album ‘Rebelde’ released towards the end of 2004, which quickly reached Diamond and Gold certifications in Mexico given its high sales, and also achieved Gold certifications in Brazil and Ecuador, as well as Triple Platinum in Colombia and Platinum in Chile. From Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Brazil, to Italy, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Japan, the United States and Spain, RBD managed to break language barriers and set records, being the first Spanish-speaking group to fill the Maracana Stadium in Brazil in 2006, as the main performers; besides being a Latin American band with more than 10 million albums sold worldwide, and more than 10 million tickets during their world tour.
