Anahi & Her RBD Band Mates Set Date for Reunion & Virtual Concert

Anahí and the gang are getting back together again…

It’s been 12 years since the 37-year-old Mexican singer/actress and her fellow RBD members’ last concert. And after rumors of a band gathering in the works, the Mexican group has officially set a date for their highly anticipated reunion.

On December 26, four of the six RBD members — Anahí, Maite Perroni, Christian Chávez, and Christopher Von Uckermann — will come together for virtual event dubbed “Ser o Parecer.”

It kicks off at 11:00 am ET with a “marathon tribute” to the Rebelde generation, where fans from all over the world will be able to be part of the marathon by submitting their own tribute videos here.

“After 12 years, we’ll finally be together again,” the participating artists posted on their social media while inviting fans to purchase tickets for the 7:00 pm ET livestream concert that will wrap up the virtual event. Tickets to the livestream concert go on sale October 4.

The virtual reunion announcement comes just weeks after RBD’s catalog was made available on all digital streaming platforms.

The band, inspired by the hit telenovela Rebelde (2004-2006), became an unstoppable force, performing sold-out shows around the world. On the Billboard charts, RBD had a total of seven entries on the Billboard 200 chart including Rebelde, Celestial and Nuestro Amor, and eight entries on Top Latin Albums with six hitting the top 10. Over on Hot Latin Songs, the band had 10 total entries and out of those, five hit top 10.

 

Santos to Debut in the Top Five on the Billboard 200 Chart

It could turn out to be a memorable week for Romeo Santos

The 32-year-old Puerto Rican/Dominican American singer is predicted to sell more than 90,000 copies of his latest album Formula, Vol. 2 in its debut week.

If sales figures hold up, Santos’ sophomore solo album would land in the Top Five on the Billboard 200 and give him his best sales week ever on the chart.

It would also result in the largest sales week for a Latin album since 2006.

The last Latin set to have a bigger week was RBD‘s Celestial, which sold 117,000 in its first week (ending Nov. 26, 2006). The last male solo artist to sell more than 90,000 was Daddy Yankee, when his Barrio Fino: En Directo — which would secure his best bow with 100,000 in the week ending Dec. 18, 2005.

But Santos isn’t the only Latino artist who could reach the Top Five.

Kid Cudi‘s Satellite Flight is expected to sell 90,000 as well. The set debuted in the iTunes Store on Tuesday (Feb. 25) with little advance warning. It is presently only available through iTunes — and only as a full album. He follows in the footsteps of Beyonce, who released her surprise self-titled album in December as an album-only set through iTunes. (After a week, the set’s tracks became available for individual purchase.)

The Billboard 200’s new top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, March 5.
