  1. Well, many of you may not know her, but for all the Latin fans in here, Mexican singer Fey's 1996 hit Azúcar Amargo just hit 100M views on YouTube. This is huge considering she only has less than 300k subscribers on her official channel and has not had the support of a record label for many years now. Directed by Luis de Velasco and filmed in a museum, it premiered in October 1996, as the lead single off her second studio album Tierna la Noche. Thanks to its popularity, it helped the album get certified Gold in Mexico just one day after being released. Azúcar Amargo (translated as Bitter Sugar) is considered Fey's biggest hit of her career, topping the US Billboard Latin Pop Songs chart, as well as becoming #1 in Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and Top 10 in several other countries, such as Brazil; this came as a huge surprise, considering her debut single Media Naranja (1995) was also a big hit and nobody imagined she would surpass it. The teen pop song, written by Mario Ablanedo and produced by José Ramón Flórez, starts as a slow piano ballad during its first verse, only to explode into an energetic Dance track starting from the second verse till the end. It talks about discovering the betrayal of her partner and having to make the decision to leave him despite still loving him, with analogies that describe the duality of the situation, such as the title of the track, bitter sugar, as well as other comparatives like being an angel and a devil. A very distinctive choreography for the chorus has remained imprinted in the memories of thousands of fans, and she herself keeps doing it 25 years later. She has performed the song in all of her tours since it was released, and she's stated she feels very proud of it and would never get tired of the song. The song was re-released in 2012 as a single from her live album Primera Fila. Fey was an icon of the 90's Pop music in Mexico and many Latin American countries. Not just her music, but as a fashion icon she influenced the way girls dressed up, to the point she even released a clothing line and accessories line, and was the image of many brands, including Fanta. A version in English and Portuguese of the song were released as well, though they're unknown to most of the public. Fey, who is turning 48 years this month, has teased to be planning more music, but meanwhile she keeps serving looks in her social media. @Midnight
  2. So probably, most of you have never heard of Fey, but she once was our Mexican version of Britney Spears back in the 90's (well, before Britney was even Britney lol). She ruled that decade with her first three albums, that were packed with bubblegum, teen pop jams, but also had a lot of Euro and Dance influences. Her career has had many up and downs ever since she decided to explore new sounds and was forced to quit the major record labels to go independent (even though she went back to Sony for a while when she released her acoustic album in 2012). She released her first album Fey in 1995 so this year was supposed to be the celebration of the 25th anniversary, but due to our current situation, she decided to record this sort of concert at home. This is Me Enamoro de Ti, the fifth single from her debut album. Edit: so this is actually part of the 90's Pop Tour concert from home where other artists participated, but she's using it as part of the celebration of her career. A few weeks ago, she had already recorded another video from home, for the anniversary of her debut single, Media Naranja. A peculiarity about her career was that she was forced to lie about her age when she came out, saying she was 17 years old, when in reality she was 22. She's actually older than her peers from back in the day, Shakira and Mónica Naranjo, which were already singing for a more adult audience since the beginning of their careers while Fey kept appealing to teenagers and kids. She was a trendsetter when it comes to fashion, with all the girls trying to dress up like her and wear the same accessories. Her debut album Fey sold more than 2.5M copies worldwide and her second album Tierna la Noche, more than 4 million. She's often nicknamed the Queen of the 90's. In recent years she's became quite the sensation due to the pictures she's been sharing on her Instagram, which show her in a more provocative way, different than anything she's ever done in her career.
