When these two lovable, talented, and larger-than-life Latin music stars come together, the room fills with boisterous laughter, friendly jokes, and best of all, incredible music with a sound like no other that moves listeners to dance, smile, sing along, and even shed a tear. Fans will revel in the unique chemistry, both on- and off-stage, between Jesse Turner, the leader of the hit-making group, Siggno, and Jennifer Pena, the much-adored Tejano princess who embarked on her musical return just a few months ago after more than a decade away from the music scene.
Take their first duet, “Casate Conmigo,” which doubles as the title of their tour that kicks off Friday, Feb. 9, 2024, in San Antonio, Texas. (Due to popular demand, a second San Antonio show was added for Saturday, Feb. 10, 2024.) The romantic song will surely serve as the ideal background music for countless future proposals of marriage and will ring out during that most special of days when two hearts become one. Oh yes, and not to mention, that upon its release Tuesday, “Casate Conmigo,” topped the iTunes Latin Singles chart, beating out the likes of Latin mega-stars Kali Uchis, Peso Pluma, Daddy Yankee, and even Bad Bunny.
Soaring vocalist Pena, whose long-awaited comeback to the industry is now a reality, and the multi-talented musician and crooner Turner, lead singer of the fan-favorite Tejano/Norteno band with a rocking edge, Siggno, act like longtime friends who have known each other for years, but in reality, their friendship and bond is only a few months old. Their voices blend seamlessly and after weeks of rehearsals for the “Casate Conmigo 2024 Tour with Siggno, featuring Jennifer Pena,” the time has arrived for fans to see this magic play out on stage.
Pena playfully jokes that she is the newest member of Siggno: “It does feel like that,” she said. While Turner said his band committed to learning Pena’s music for this tour. The two wouldn’t answer about how they would handle the two monster duets they each enjoyed during their careers with Pena and DJ Kane’s “Abrazame y Besame,” and Turner’s hugely popular duet with Elida Reyna, “Juntos Hasta Morir.” Fans will just have to wait and see what unfolds at the concert.
On the success of “Casate Conmigo,” hitting that No. 1 top spot on the iTunes Latin chart, both performers were simultaneously humbled and thrilled.
“I’m super excited,” Pena said. “I wasn’t expecting it. I don’t think either of us were quite expecting that. But, I’m honored that the fans have been super anxious for some new music and that they came out and really showed their support with the new single.”
“We love the song,” Pena continued. “I love singing it. I love hearing it. I love that the people are loving it. I love that I think that it’s going to help us be a part of so many people’s special and biggest moment of some people’s lives.”
“Thank you to each and every single one of you who formed part of our musical journey,” Turner said. “Thank you for helping us get to No. 1 and don’t stop. Keep supporting the music, the song, “Casate Conmigo.”
Turner talks more about the song’s origins as an acoustic version which was revamped into a cumbia.
“We had so much faith in this song that we literally created a whole concept of a tour for the song,” Turner said. “The name of the tour is called, “Casate Conmigo,”….Marry us on this tour for 2024,” Turner invites all of the fans.
“We’re hoping that you can come along on this journey and support our genre,” he said. “Support Tejano music. Support music in general. This is a once-in-a-lifetime, you know because Jennifer she’s coming back. We’ve been around, but to do this together, it’s an honor for us.”
Jennifer pipes in, “That is so cool!”
But Turner leaves it open as to just exactly how long the “Casate Conmigo” tour will last as interest in the show has poured in from around the world.
