Bio

Latin pop trio Reik formed in Mexicali, Baja California, in 2003. After recording a demo that yielded the Mexican underground club favorites "Levemente" and "Ahora sin Ti," singer Jesús Alberto Navarro Rosas and guitarist Julio Ramírez Eguía invited backing vocalist/guitarist Gilberto "Bibi" Marin Espinoza to join the lineup in early 2004. After signing to Sony Music a few months later, Reik teamed with producers Abelardo Vázquez and Kiko Cibrian to begin work on their self-titled debut LP. The album proved a phenomenon, generating three consecutive Mexican chart-toppers in "Yo Quisiera," "Que Vida la Mia," and "Noviembre sin Ti." All three singles also crossed over to the U.S. Latin pop charts, and in mid-2005, Reik mounted a brief U.S. tour; the trio also received a Latin Grammy nomination in the Best New Artist category. The pre-release single, "Invierno," was issued in September, followed by the live Sesion Metropolitana DVD, in November, and their sophomore album, Secuencia, in December. It peaked just inside the Top 30 on the Latin Album charts. Three additional singles from the album placed on various Latin sales and airplay charts. 2008's Un Dia Mas fared better, placing inside the Top Ten Latin Albums, and netted them the number three single, "Inolvidable," and three more that landed on lower rungs. The full-length netted them a Latin Grammy Award for Best Pop Album by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 2009. Mexican and U.S tours followed the next year. The group re-emerged with Peligro in 2011. Helmed by three different producers -- Remy Palacios, Kiko Cibrián, and Ettore Grenci -- it netted five charting singles. It was was certified platinum in Mexico and hit number three on the pop charts. In the U.S., it peaked number two on Latin Pop Albums and number three on Top Latin Albums charts. Another extended international tour -- that took them to South Korea -- culminated in the live offering En Vivo Desde el Auditorio Nacional in 2013. Two years later, the trio entered the Viña del Mar International Song Festival and won first and second place awards for their entries. Well established with their pop songs and romantic ballads, Reik sought to shake things up when they re-entered the studio. While pre-release new single "Voy a Olvidarte," issued in January, was of familiar ballad stock, it landed inside the Top 20. The bilingual second single, "Spanglish," wed vintage early-'60s rock, surf, and big-beat pop, while "Ya Me Enteré" explored both folk and reggaeton with urban star Nicky Jam as a featured guest. Des/Amor was released June and marked the band's first studio recording in five years. ~ Jason Ankeny
