The inimitable Mexican pop queen Gloria Trevi is going back on the road — and taking Colombian superstar Karol G with her. In support of Trevi’s 2019 album, Diosa de La Noche, the duo’s fall U.S. tour opens this Friday the 13th, under an auspicious full moon, in Fresno, California.
In anticipation of their joint tour, Trevi and Karol appeared at a Los Angeles press conference, where they were surprised with a Gold record certification for sales of their scorcher of a reggaeton track, “Hijoepu*#,” which featured on Diosa de La Noche, or Goddess of the Night. In what translates to “Son of a Bitch,” the two sound off on a cheating ex-boyfriend; and in the video, they get sickly sweet revenge.

“We had a really lovely chemistry when we met,” says Trevi, whose black vinyl getup contrasted with Karol G’s fresh white leather. “I arrived to be inducted into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame in Miami, and she had also been invited. We greeted each other, took a photo and uploaded it to our social media. People went crazy commenting, ‘YOU HAVE TO COLLABORATE!!!’ — yes, in all caps.”
“When we talked about doing something together, I had this song that I had [written] long ago,” says Karol G, whose Ocean album was released in May. “But I felt it needed something — it needed attitude, strength, power. And obviously, we all know that [Gloria] is super powerful.”
“I’m very intense when exploring subjects like love,” Trevi told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. “But I also talk about getting up when you fall! And when I met [Karol] I couldn’t help but notice that she had been criticized a lot,” she adds, referring to Karol G’s public relationship with Latin trap artist Anuel AA.
“That’s how knew I wanted to collaborate with her,” Trevi continues. “The controversy around her was absurd. All she was doing was showing her boyfriend love, but you know how people are. All these comments like, ‘They’re slipping each other the tongue in public.’ Well then — don’t look!”
