Mexican pop band OV7 releases new video from home for Al Ritmo de la Vida

Most of you might be unfamiliar with this group, but believe it or not they were once one of the most successful groups in the music scene in Mexico. They started since they were kids at the end of the 80's as "La Onda Vaselina" then changed it to simply "Onda Vaselina" in the mid 90's until in 2000 they had a complete change, renaming the band as OV7. This last change came after they decided to drop her former manager and creator of the group, Mexican actress Julissa, in one of the most controversial events of Mexican pop history, since many people saw it as a betrayal. Thing is they were seeking for independence and control over the group's direction, but Julissa wouldn't allow it, so they all told her they were quitting, while in complicity with the record label reformed as a new group, OV7.

 

They then went on to release CD 00 in 2000, their most successful album and one of the best selling records in Mexico according to AMPROFON. The group disbanded in 2003, right when they were about to record their first album in English. They came back in 2010 with just 6 members, then they were 5, sometimes 7 again lol

Last year, it was the 30th anniversary of the formation of the group, but they didn't celebrate it properly because they were still part of the joint tour 90's Pop Tour, which was very successful and lasted almost 3 years, and also because one of the members had a baby, so they decided to celebrate it with a tour this year. However, coronavirus happened, so it had to be postponed. 

 

The tour is now supposed to start in late August, but we'll have to wait and see how is the situation going by then. Meanwhile, they released a music video made from home for Al Ritmo de la Vida, a 20 year old track that came out in that album I mentioned, which is really cool and unexpected considering it wasn't released as a single back then.

 

They had already released another video during this quarantine

We should have an appreciation thread for OV7. Their album ‘7 Latidos’ (7 Heartbeats) is a masterpiece.

Who? :omg:

:gloria:

OV7 

they used to be so popular in Mexico and Spain before reggaeton came to infest everything and pop still ruled the music scene  :fakecry:

to be fair, it's their fault for disbanding in 2003, right when they were at the peak of their success, and literally seconds before jumping into the American market, only because some of them wanted to pursue a solo career.

Only one of them had success though :nochillbrit: 

 

They still have a lot of fans, but it's mostly people in their 30's and 40's. So, they don't have any streaming power, but they're still selling stadiums

And btw, they recorded some of their albums in Italy, back in the day.

 

Almost all the Mexican pop acts went to record their albums in Italy or Spain :idkney:

No I mean, they just went and recorded the albums there, with Italian producers / songwriters, but I don't think their music was ever marketed for Italy (if that's where you're from).

They did use to go to Spain though

 The fact that a Mexican pop group that nobody's heard about is doing more promo than Lady ******* Gaga has me livid. Imagine how tired we are.

Wow I totally remember having this album when I was a child, when it was the theme song for a telenovela. I remember seeing one of their shows when I was in Mexico for a summer and it was so packed and overwhelming. I didn't follow much of the their career after their first album, but this performance shows they still have it, all these years later. What a great pop group!

RBD OUTSOLD CIAO 

OV7 walked so RBD could run

Also, RBD members are so ungrateful, they refuse to do a reunion :kyliecry:
