Gloria Trevi has renewed her recording contract with Universal Music Latino, the label tells Billboard.

The Mexican singer-songwriter, known for anthemic pop songs such as "Todos Me Miran," "Cinco Minutos" and "Pelo Suelto," signed the new deal in March in Miami. Universal did not disclose financial details regarding the contract renewal.

"I’m renewing with Universal in this new stage of my life that will be more epic and fun, because what is the sense of having a life if you are not going to live it," Trevi said in a statement. "I’m going to explode with new music, crazy ideas and heart-wrenching romantic songs that will continue to be soundtracks to our lives."

About the signing, Universal Music Latin America & Iberian Peninsula chairman and CEO Jesús López – who signed Trevi's first album in 1989 (Qué Hago Aquí?) – said: "From the first moment Gloria stepped on the stage she has defended women’s rights, not only with her songs but also through her fight, and she continues to be the first line of attack so Mexican women and women around the world have equal opportunities and rights."

The multi-hyphenated artist, who has placed four No. 1s on Billboard's Top Latin Albums, recently joined forces with Mon Laferte for their first ever collaboration: a re-imagined version of Laferte's "La Mujer."

In February, the "Con Los Ojos Cerrados" singer received Premio Lo Nuestro's special award Premio A la Trayectoria, honoring her multi-decade legacy. Trevi is currently working on a new album due this summer.
