The publishing deal follows Lupita Infante’s ear-catching single “Flor Sin Retoño.”

Regional Mexican singer and songwriter Lupita Infante has been signed to an exclusive co-publishing agreement with peermusic.

Infante is the granddaughter of Pedro Infante, the legendary Mexican singer and actor known as “the King of Rancheras.” Her father was the actor Pedro Infante Jr.

"Lupita is one of the brightest new stars of her generation and a strong female presence in a very male dominated genre," Yvonne Drazen, peermusic’s Latin division vice president said in a statement from the company. "I am a huge fan of her grandfather’s music, and thus have a special appreciation for the way Lupita channels the tenderness of his voice while still making her own mark in the current market."

The signing comes on the heels of "Flor Sin Retoño," an ear-catching single that demonstrates Infante’s contemporary take on mariachi music.

Infante has opened concerts for Shaila Durcal and Beatriz Adriana. Most recently, she performed at this year’s Mariachi USA festival held at the Hollywood Bowl, and was also recently a finalist on La Voz, Mexico's edition of The Voice.
