Children of Jenni Rivera Reveal Details on Her Upcoming Album at 2022 Latin Music Week
More Jenni Rivera music is coming soon.
Guests at the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Week on Tuesday (Sept. 27) got the exclusive when Chiquis, Jacqie, Mike, Jenicka, and Johnny Rivera formed part of the panel, “Children of Jenni Rivera presented by Amazon Music”.
The five siblings were moderated by Griselda Flores (Billboard Latin senior writer), and had a once in a lifetime conversation about their mother’s legacy as well as new music that Sergio Lizarraga will produce.
Johnny said that Lizarraga was the perfect fit to lead the project because his mom was very particular about musical arrangements. Sergio is a master of la banda sinolasense, which she loved. He was able not only to preserve her essence, but also the music.
As of now, the untitled album will include 11 tracks and is slated to be released on Dec. 9. Some singles have been released already, but Chiquis promises that fans will be pleasantly surprised.
The Rivera family shared a preview for “Mision Cumplida,” Jenni’s next single, during the heartfelt panel. According to Johnny, who is at the forefront of the musical production, the single was composed in 2008 but it was until this year in January that they found out their mother actually recorded it. Jacqie said that it felt like everything was falling into place.
Chiquis said, “[This song] confirms that the timing is perfect and my mother is still here with me,”
Coinciding with National Hispanic Heritage Month, Billboard Latin Music Week includes workshops and panels featuring artists such as Christina Aguilera, Romeo Santos, Camilo, Nicky Jam, Wisin y Yandel, Maluma, Chayanne, Ivy Queen, Grupo Firme, Bizarrap, Blessd, Grupo Firme, and many more.
The event will also feature superstar concerts, intimate showcases and new music premieres from Bizarrap, Elena Rose and Ozuna. BRESH will host the ultimate closing party at Oasis in Miami’s Wynwood.
For 30 years, Billboard Latin Music Week has been the longest-running and biggest Latin music industry gathering in the world. It will also dovetail with the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards on Sept. 29, in Miami.
Telemundo will broadcast the Billboard Latin Music Awards live. It will also broadcast simultaneously on Telemundo Internacional, the Spanish entertainment cable network, Universo and throughout Latin America.
