∙ The 2007 LP Entre Mariposas, her first to feature original songs, included such radio staples as “Ahora Entendi” and “En Su Lugar,” the theme song for the telenovela Secretos del alma.
∙ Former Elefante frontman Reyli tapped her to duet on his 2011 single “¿Qué Nos Pasó?,” which spent a month atop Mexico’s Pop chart.
∙ Nearly all of her releases have hit No. 1 in Mexico, including the 2015 LP, 6, which also became her first to make the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.
