Dulce María remembers those crazy days, back in 2006, when she and the other five teenage members of RBD would finish recording their telenovela on the Televisa forum at 4 in the afternoon. From there, they would be picked up by a helicopter, flown to a private airport, then to another city, and finally taken directly to some arena, where they would sing and dance for two hours or more. Afterwards, they’d be back at the hotel, where, if there was time, they would rehearse or record some music.
The following day, they would do it all over again.
“It was being on a roller coaster that never stops,” says Dulce María today. “You can’t assimilate neither the good nor the not so good, until you stop and it’s, ah!”
Everything stopped on December 22, 2008, when RBD, perhaps the most successful Latin pop group of all time, gave their last concert in Madrid.
But 15 years later, five of the six original members of the group have returned in what appears to be one of the most monumental reunions in Latin music.
In an exclusive interview with Billboard and Billboard Español, Anahí, Dulce María, Maite, Christian and Christopher sat down together for the first time in over a decade and spoke at length about their return to the stage, what RBD meant in their lives, where they are today, and their role and legacy in Latin pop music.
