The Art Tigerina Band have released, “No Te Olvidare” featuring Cortney Rico, the lead single from their upcoming sophomore album. It’s a cover of the 1991 Tejano Music Awards Song of the Year, written and performed by Joe Lopez Y Grupo Mazz.
The iconic ballad is revered by many, and it is the hope and anticipation of Art Tigerina and the Art Tigerina Band that this new twist to a long time favorite will be enjoyed by those who listen.
“We knew it would definitely be a gutsy move to re-record this amazing song,” said Tigerina. “Artists many times do this to iconic songs and it doesn’t do the song justice and people don’t like it. We believe that because of our musicianship, production quality, and respect for the music that the release of ‘No Te Olvidare’ will be appreciated. Besides, I’m a pretty gutsy guy, so I’m always up for the challenge.”
“No Te Olvidare” was produced by Eric “E-Rock” Avalos with Chavalos Music, Inc. and includes female vocals performed by rising singer Cortney Rico.
Tigerina recorded 10 album during his tenure with Grupo Vida, receiving two Grammy nominations, multiple Tejano Music Awards awards and nominations, and many other accolades for their music. He left Vida in 2013 and began his solo career almost two years after his departure, releasing De Mi No Te Olvidaras, Art Tigerina Band’s debut album in June 2017.
He is proud of the music he has released in his solo career with the Art Tigerina Band and feels it’s a true reflection of the style of music he wants to sing.
The band’s sophomore album is expected to be released in late 2018, and the Art Tigerina Band looks forward to bringing fans more the same sound from the debut album with hardcore Tejano rancheras, cumbias, and maybe even some of that highly requested country music Art does well!
