Tejano singer Yvette Cruz released her comeback single, “Me Muero,” on Monday. The catchy cumbia is a remake of the 2006 worldwide hit from La 5ª Estación.
“I chose ‘Me Muero’ because I fell in love with lyrics,” Cruz told Tejano Nation. “It is a passionate song about loving someone and perhaps for reasons of fate they can’t be together.”
Cruz believes her fans will have an emotional bond with the new track.
“I think that many people can relate to maybe having loved someone from far away,” she said. “It’s a very heartfelt song.”
The Silver City, New Mexico native stepped away from the music scene to concentrate on her Associates degree in Business Administration after recording several rancheras, including the classic “Me Piden” and “A La Que Vive Contigo” in 2003.
Cruz began singing and performing at the age of 9 and has always dreamt of becoming an entertainer/singer. At the age of 13, she began opening up for Tejano super stars Elida Reyna, Ruben Ramos, Stefani Montiel, La Diferenzia, Patsy Torres, Pete Astudillo and more.
Cruz’s passion for music remained burning inside her. After stepping away from making music for a number of years, the singer decided it was time to begin playing music and recording again. In 2014, Cruz performed at Shelly’s All-American Showcase at the Tejano Music National Convention in Las Vegas and the 2015 Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair in San Antonio.
Cruz is currently working on an EP and plans to release it soon.
