Mexican pop/rock artist Gloria Trevi has extended her multi-album music publishing contract with independent music publisher peermusic.
Trevi first joined peermusic as a songwriter in 2007 and went on to compose hits such as "Psicofonia," "El Favor de la Soledad," "Vestida de Azucar" and "Me Rio De Ti." These songs were featured in the Una Rosa Blu and the self-titled Gloria albums.
Trevi has had three top 10's and one No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums including Como Nace El Universo in 2004, which peaked at No. 4; Una Rosa Blu in 2007, which peaked at No. 9, and Gloria in 2011, which peaked at No. 1. Her most recent album, Gloria: En Vivo, was released in June, 2012, and peaked at No. 15.
"I can't put into words how honored we are that Gloria Trevi wanted to expand her publishing relationship with us," said Yvonne Drazan, peermusic's director of A&R, who who originally signed the singer/songwriter. "She's at the top of her game with her first novela and its soundtrack. Her creativity and perseverance is an inspiration to women in music, and we are looking forward to this new phase of her career as a writer, artist and actress."
Trevi can currently be seen in a leading role on the Mexican soap opera "Libre para amarte" on the Televisa network.
In a June interview with Billboard, Trevi said she was an independent artist. However, her brief indie status changed soon after. The release of Trevi's new album is scheduled to go on sale in September through Universal Music Latino. The album, De Pelicula, features 8 tracks that appear as "incidental music" in the soap opera. The songs include "Libre para amarte," "Aurora" and Trevi's current single, "No Soy Un Pajaro," featured in the telenovela's closing credits.
In 2000, Trevi was arrested along with her manager and a backup dancer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on charges of corrupting minors. Nearly five years later, Trevi was acquitted and cleared of the charges due to lack of evidence. Trevi returned to the stage with great success and an outpouring of support from her fans.
