It was released on Wednesday, July 1 along with a music video that pays homage to La Diva de la Banda.

Penned by Luis Antonio LópezEl Mimoso” and Rivera, Rivera reflects on her hard work to get to the top with lyrics like, “It hurts them to see that I’m the diva, but I say what I feel … to earn respect, I’ve worked hard, I won’t stop.”

The video is a compilation of Rivera’s accolades like her Billboard awards and Premios Lo Nuestro, and footage from sold-out shows at the Staples Center and Arena Monterrey.

An unstoppable force, even eight years after her death, “Quisieran Tener Mi Lugar” follows Rivera’s two previous posthumous singles “Aparentemente Bien” and “Engañémoslo” released by the Rivera family.

Vives’ “Las Cosas de la Vida” Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

It’s Lucky No. 11 for Carlos Vives

The 54-year-old Colombian singer/composer leaps 12-1 on Billboard‘s Latin Airplay chart (dated March 5) with “Las Cosas de la Vida,” giving him his 11th career No. 1 on the list.

The song soars by 83 percent to 12.3 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music, earning Greatest Gainer honors.

Vives is now tied for the third-most No. 1s in the chart’s history with Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan and Romeo Santos. Enrique Iglesias leads with 25 toppers, followed by Ricky Martin (15).

Vives’ chart victory follows a star-studded performance on Univision’s awards show Premios Lo Nuestro (broadcast live Feb. 18), on which he was honored with the award of excellence. The singer invited several surprise guests to accompany him for a medley of his hits, all fellow Colombian musicians, including Juanes, J Balvin, Maluma and Fonseca.

Vives achieved his first No. 1 on Latin Airplay in 2000 with his longest-leading hit to date, “Fruta Fresca” (six weeks on top). 2001’s “Dejame Entrar” is his second-longest-ruling No. 1 (four weeks).

Following a seven-year absence from Billboard‘s charts (2005-12, as he took a hiatus from music), Vives returned with a No. 1 debut on Hot Latin Songs for “Volvi A Nacer” (Oct. 13, 2012), his fifth (and most recent) song to top the airplay/sales/streaming chart.

Rivera’s “I Love Jenni”: the Top Hispanic Reality Show on Cable

Talk about a diva on top… It seems there’s plenty of love for Jenni Rivera.

The second season of the 43-year-old Mexican-American singer/songwriter’s series I Love Jenni reigned as the No. 1 reality show on Hispanic cable during its 19-episode run, which ended Sunday.

Rivera, who has released 16 banda and norteña albums, launched her reality show last year on Mun2 and has since became the cable channel’s “most effective weapon in reaching an influential population of bilingual Hispanics,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

Commonly known as “la diva de la banda,” Rivera’s musical success has remained steady throughout her career. She’s been nominated for two Latin Grammys, won the Premios Lo Nuestro female artist of the year several times and scored a No. 1 album on the U.S. Billboard Top Latin Album charts in 2008.

And now she’s moving beyond her musical career, capitalizing on her appealing personality and glamorous lifestyle to gain more acclaim. Rivera, who has five children and a grandchild and is married to Mexican-born former pro-baseball pitcher Esteban Loaiza, recently signed on to become a mentor on La Voz… Mexico.

Rivera’s also a radio host and entrepreneur, with her own fragrance and curvy jeans line.

Rivera says I Love Jenni is about her life and what it’s like to be a Mexican-American woman living in California., even though she says the show can be enjoyed by viewers from any background.
