Former adult starlet Lupe Fuentes has released two successful music singles so far in 2013 with The Ex-Girlfriends and is poised for a mainstream takeover.
Here's the full press announcement:
Spanish-Colombian model, singer and dancer Lupe Fuentes has spent this past year writing music, forming her own pop group, The Ex-Girlfriends and releasing two infectious singles "We Are the Party" and "Whatchya Lookin' At?" to iTunes, with an astonishing amount of success.
The Ex-Girlfriends' ultra-sexy videos have been seen by millions of people; "We Are the Party" received over 25 million views and "Whatchya Lookin' At?" – released three weeks ago – is currently at 5.1 million views on YouTube and counting. The video exposure has since translated into dollar signs at iTunes, an especially remarkable feat for The Ex-Girlfriends in a climate where music is widely available online for free.
Fuentes will continue to release new music – and those playfully risqué videos – this year. "I have a full album worth of material written and recorded," says Fuentes "but I'm not sure yet if I will release an album or focus just on singles."
The Ex-Girlfriends' Do-It-Yourself success story without the help of the music industry machine has, ironically, created a buzz in that industry that's been building steadily for months. While Fuentes is excited about the future, for now she is simply enjoying expressing herself through her music. "Music can be so positive and help people to feel so free," affirms Fuentes. "We all need to laugh and we also need a soundtrack for our lives."
