RBD was a pop group from Mexico who were active from 2004 to 2009. Members of the group consisted of popular Mexican singers and actors, including Christian Chávez, Dulce María Espinosa, Alfonso Herrera, Maite Perroni, Anahí Puente and Christopher Uckermann.

2004 saw the release of their debut album, “Rebelde,” via EMI Records. 2005 saw the release of their second album, “Nuestro Amor,” which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Latin Albums chart and reached #88 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. The album spawned four #1 singles on the Mexican Pop chart. In the United States, “Nuestro Amor,” “Aún Hay Algo” and “Este Corazón,” also peaked on the Billboard Hot Latin Singles Chart at #6, #24 and #10 respectively.

The group’s success both back home in Mexico and in the U.S. generated a large and loyal following for the band. 2006 saw RBD embark on a tour of the U.S. and the album “Nuestro Amor” receive a nomination for Best Pop Album by a Group or Duo at the Latin Grammy Awards.

The group’s third offering, “Celestial,” charted at #15 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. The album spurred the hits, “Ser o Parecer,” “Celestial” and “Bésame Sin Miedo.” That same year saw the group release their first English-speaking album, “Rebels,” which peaked at #40 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart.

In 2007 RBD was nominated in three categories for the 2007 Billboard Latin Music Awards. “Celestial” and “Live in Hollywood” were both nominated for Latin Pop Album of the Year by a Group or Duo. They were also nominated for Top Latin Albums Artist of the Year and Latin Tour of the Year. They won in every category they were nominated.

The group followed up their success with a world tour and the release of their fourth album, “Empezar Desde Cero,” which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Latin Albums chart. The first single off the album, “Inalcanzable,” peaked at #2 on the Mexican Pop chart. 2008 saw “Empezar Desde Cero” nominated for Best Pop Album at the Latin Grammy Awards.

In 2009 the group announced they were disbanding. Herrera, Uckermann and Perroni focused on their acting careers, Chavez pursued a solo career, Anahí opened a clothing store in Mexico City and Dulce María shot a movie. 2009 saw the release of a greatest hits album, “Best of RBD,” and a final album, “Para Olvidarte De Mí.”
