“There’s so many collaborations going on that I was like, ‘You know what, Texas Latino hasn’t done a collab.’ I thought we should do a collaboration to kick off the new year,” Rivera tells Tejano Nation. “We teamed up with Monica Saldivar, who of course an amazing vocalist and when I was thinking about who I wanted to work with as far as a female vocalist, she was at the top of my list becaue she’s an amazing vocalist, she’s a great artist, and I got to see her perform a few times and I was just blown away by her talent.”
Monica Saldivar, known for her powerful vocals and emotive performances, brings a unique flavor to “Pienso En Ti”. The collaboration between Texas Latino and Saldivar is a testament to the band’s commitment to evolving their sound while staying true to their Tejano roots.
