Gloria Trevi and Karol G

Mexican pop icon Gloria Trevi, 51, recently released her 12th album, Diosa de la Noche (Goddess of the Night), and is currently on a tour of the same name in Mexico through June. But come Sept. 13 she’ll bring her show stateside with help from Karol G, 28, who appears on Trevi’s new full-length and has yet to embark on a major U.S. tour. Ahead of their co-headlining outing, the Universal Music Latin labelmates compare what else they have in common.

Gloria Trevi: McAllen, Texas -- my entire family lives there.

Karol G: I like to listen to music that’s not my own, and I pray with my whole team.

Gloria Trevi: I always put my trust in God, but aside from that, hair and makeup is a big ritual.

Karol G: I like to listen to music that’s not my own, and I pray with my whole team.

Gloria Trevi: All of them, because they were all conceived specifically for each song I perform.

Karol G: It depends on my mood. We go from a lot of bling to a hoodie, sweats and sneakers.

Gloria Trevi: On one of the first Diosa de la Noche dates, it was very hot, and we were sweating like crazy. When I turned around to look at the dancers after particularly taxing choreography, they all looked like sheep ready for slaughter. We just started to laugh in the middle of the stage.

Karol G: In Las Vegas, a day before the Latin Grammys, I was walking backward and hit a light and fell down. The worst part is that I was singing with Becky G and Mau y Ricky -- they all rushed over to help me. It was very dramatic.

Gloria Trevi: My children.

Karol G: My dog, Otto.

Gloria Trevi: "Mi Cama" and "Punto G." I also have a song called "Punto G," and we both have a G in our names!

Karol G: She has tons of amazing songs, but “Habla Blah Blah” is one of my favorites.
