It’s a close encounter of the music kind for Anahi and her band mates…
The 40-year-old Mexican actress and singer and her recently reunited RBD mates have released the new single “Cerquita de Ti,” arriving just days before launching the band’s highly anticipated reunion tour on August 25 in El Paso, Texas.
The title of the song translates to “close to you,” which perfectly captures RBD’s long-awaited reunion.
“So great that we meet again, nobody believed us but we did it. It’s been hard but we’re here … You know I’ll always be close to you,” they sing.
After splitting in 2008, RBD — comprised of Anahí, Dulce María, Christian Chavez, Maite Perroni and Christopher von Uckermann — announced their comeback tour in January, confirming stadium and arena shows in the U.S., Mexico and Brazil.
“There’re cycles in life and each one of us had to focus on our careers as actors and musicians and that meant we had to give those projects time, energy and a lot of dedication,” Perroni previously told Billboard. “It also allowed each one of us to grow professionally and personally. Now, the time [for the reunion] is perfect because we’re now more conscious, more mature, we’ll enjoy it from a different perspective now as adults.”
Earlier this week, Billboard announced that RBD’s Perroni, Chávez and von Uckermann will be part of the 2023 Latin Music Week, set to take place on October 2-6 at the Faena Forum in Miami.
The three RBD members will take center stage to share how their reunion tour came to fruition. This RBD marquee appearance follows another first as this month, all five members will sit down with Billboard and Billboard Español for their first interview as a group.
