Featured content: Gerardo-Rico Suave
In 1991, Gerardo released the song “Rico Suave” and it quickly became one of the most popular songs in the United States reaching #7 on the Billboard Charts AND reached #2 on the Rap charts.
It is also one of the top 100 songs of the 90s by VH1
The video was also nominated Best Music Video by MTV.
And this was also one of the first “Latin” musicians to reach mainstream American culture.
The ironic thing is that most people in Mexico never even knew that this song existed.
