They would like to have my place is the name of the song that Jenni Rivera has launched on the market almost eight years after her death. This was possible thanks to the fact that this July 2, the family of the remembered ‘Diva de la banda’ decided to celebrate what would have been their 51st birthday through the release of the unreleased song.
However, less than 24 hours after the appearance on music platforms of the song composed by the deceased performer in co-authorship with “El Mimoso”, Jenni’s new material is already in the midst of controversy.
The program Tell me what you know presented a talk with Laura Lucio, who was a close friend of the late band singer, and made certain statements that raised suspicions by questioning the authenticity of the voice that is heard in the new songs, which, according to Pedro Rivera, the interpreter left before losing her life in that plane crash that shocked the public in December 2012.
“When I heard that song something did not satisfy me, I was in the studio with Jenni, I know her voice, I know her timbre, I know everything about Jenni, then it is very difficult for me to come to say that this album is Jenni’s, ”she said, questioning the previously unreleased mariachi song that was released last December during the diva’s seven-year anniversary.
The woman, who was also employed by the interpreter of Unforgettable and Apparently finenoted that only the family knows whether or not it is Jenni’s voice: “You have to ask them that”
For that reason, I better remain silent and everyone who thinks what they want. Everyone, if you think that is Jenni, well that is Jenni
Also. Laura Lucio assured that she no longer maintains any type of contact with the children of “The big lady”, well Rosie Rivera, Jenni’s sister, is prohibited from approaching them.
Laura Lucio, who in August 2019 published the book A Crazy Life: Anecdotes and Conversations with my Friend Jenni Rivera, where he narrates his experiences next to the diva, he also said in the program that the alleged quarrels that exist between the members of the Riera family have caused the legacy of “The neighborhood butterfly” look tarnishedBecause her family members have not left her ego aside, they have not been able to honor Jenni’s memory with all the solemnity it deserves.
A first-hand documentary
Lucio is also preparing a documentary material Based on the book he published and the material he has, consisting of video, audio and photographs, files that he has jealously guarded since those days when he shared his days with Jenni and was able to meet her on a personal and professional level.
The woman expressed in the past not need the express authorization of the Rivera family to launch said project, since he considered that it will be a work carried out with his own means and resources.
“The family knows that I was going to check out this book, the family has known for years that I was going to continue with the plans to tell my story, because this is my story, obvious with Jenni. I don’t need your authorization, as a producer I can get what is mine, ”she declared in August last year.
