The visual for the song of unity showcases the four ladies interrogating a man, portrayed by singer Eric Lee, who was a love interest of all four and it doesn’t end well for him in the video.
Lares spoke with Tejano Nation about choosing the three amazing vocalists she wanted to be part of this collaboration. “I knew I wanted Monica, only because I’ve been a huge fan of hers and I love the texture and tone of her voice, and then Demmi I’ve known since before she was born. I’ve known her her whole life, her mom is one of my best friends, and I love her soft, beautiful voice. And then I wanted someone in between. So, it was weird how I heard of Sonja. I came across her song on the radio and said, ‘Oh my God, that’s the voice I need. That’s the voice I’m missing as the fourth girl.’”
“Little Miss Dynamite” added “Nada De Ti” was a way to showcase the next generation of women in Tejano music, “It’s the way for me to pass the torch on to the next generation of women. I just wanted to do this to kind of share some experiences with them, to mentor them like I usually do. The girls, they nailed it! This song represents unity, strength, camaraderie and the lifting of each other.”
Saldivar is winner of 2015 Tejano Idol and released her self-titled debut album in 2019 earning her Best New Female Artist at the Tejano Music Awards in 2020. Garcia is a third-generation Tejano singer and musician currently working on her solo debut album and was most recently featured in a song with her father’s band, Avizo.

The collaboration is one of many from the final Tejano album by Lares titled LMD82 released in April. She will officially retire from the Tejano music industry to pursue other interests, namely a career in nursing, after her LMD Legacy Tour wraps up in 2022.
