Lares is quickly becoming known as the “Queen of Collabs” over the past few years lending her voice to many duets and this one is a cover of a song recorded by late Latin music icon Jenni Rivera. Virginia Y Valor frontwoman Virginia Champion tells Tejano Nation she discovered the song in Rivera’s catalog of music after watching the biographical series about the singer, Mariposa de Barrio.

“I liked it and I thought, you know what, that song if we did it Tejano Conjunto with a little bit of attitude I think would be awesome,” she said. “Good dancing music, good drinking music, music for people that just accept the reality of what love can be. It’s not always beautiful, sometimes there’s heartache, sometimes there’s pain. That’s life.”

“La Reina Es El Rey” will be part of Virginia Y Valor’s upcoming sophomore album, Adelante, produced by Severo “Sevy” Contreras, who was instrumental in setting up the duet with Virginia and Lares.

“Shelly’s such a good role model,” said Virginia. “She sets the stage for that to happen between other people. The collaborations, it’s critical in any industry, but in the music industry, it’s just as important. People need to be willing to share and together I think we could create better projects.” 

“La Reina Es El Rey” from Virginia Y Valor featuring Shelly Lares truly speaks to the power that love and passion for a woman can have on a man and is available to stream or download on all digital music platforms.
