New Jenni Rivera Songs to Be Released Soon, Family Confirms
The tracks were discovered by the late singer's brother Juan, Chiquis Rivera announced on Mexican television June 11.
Jenni Rivera tracks never heard publicly will be released soon, according to Chiquis Rivera, who made the announcement during an appearance on a Mexican talk show.
One of those discovered tracks by the late regional Mexican star is "Quisieran Tener Mi Lugar" (You Wish You Had My Place), which was included in the March release of Chiquis' Entre Botellas album. The track includes vocals for both mother and daughter.
"She left it recorded," Chiquis said during the Hoy interview. "My uncle Juan found it among others songs that my mom recorded. I think they’ll be released soon, but I don't know when."
Recording "Quisieran Tener Mi Lugar" as a duet with her mom was a labor of love for Chiquis, who conceded that she did not tear up in the studio while recording it, but "when I heard our voices together -- that's when I cried."
Rivera died in a plane crash in late 2012, while she was working in Mexico. Billboard reached out to Rivera's longtime label, Fonovisa, about upcoming projects, but confirmation was not immediately available.
Rivera said that she also contributed a verse for the song with her mother because it wasn't finished. During her media visits in Mexico City, Rivera also said that there will also likely be a fourth season of the NBC Universo reality series The Riveras in addition to also confirming that she's planning to marry Lorenzo Mendez, the lead singer of La Original Banda el Limón de Salvador Lizárraga, who also appeared mid-interview on the talk show to sit next to his fiancé.
