Los Tigres del Norte Make History — Again!

This week, Los Tigres del Norte broke its own stadium attendance record at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, drawing 75,595 fans during the rodeo’s Go Tejano Day. As part of their Siempre Contigo tour, the renowned norteño band, known as The Voice of the People, performed at the sold-out NRG Stadium just days after also closing out the Besame Mucho Festival with more than 70,000 fans in attendance. At the former, Los Tigres broke its own 2019 record by topping it with nine more attendees this year.

“Thank you to our beloved fans […] without you, this wouldn’t have been possible,” the Regional Mexican group wrote on Instagram.

From Billboard Latin Music Week to “Existo” 

On Friday (March 15), Pedro Capó and Carin León dropped their first collaborative effort “Existo,” a song they created in real time, in front of a live audience and in 30 minutes at the 2023 Billboard Latin Music Week in October. The captivating track starts off with country-tinged guitar riffs and transitions into a mid-tempo cumbia, and resembles the resilience and empowerment of human beings in the midst of adversity. The lyrics are based on the real experiences of both singers: “How can I not be successful if I exist?” they passionately chant.

The idea of the song was first created during the Making the Hit, Live! panel at Latin Music Week. In the Instagram Live video below, Capó and León talk to Billboard about finally bringing it to life. 

Goyo’s Daughter Shines on Stage

Goyo and her young daughter, Saba, had a shining moment this week when the pre-teen shared her talent on stage with CeeLo Green. “Last night was simply magical,” the Colombian artist, who shares her daughter with former Chocquibtown singer Tostao, expressed on Instagram. The sweet moment was captured on video, in which Saba is seen singing Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” as CeeLo and her mom hype her up on stage. “My daughter Saba demonstrated that the best pathway to empower is with example. CeeLo Green asked who knew the song and without doubting a second, made her dreams come true. The younger, the more wild,” she wrote.
