âWe had to record music that wayâ¦ throw a party, without planning, spontaneous, and it worked for us,â singer Eduin Caz said. Billboard. â’Juro Por Dios’, ‘Ni El Dinero, Ni Nada’ and ‘Pideme’ were our first songs to go viral. It was like magic. People sing our songs and recognize us on the streets, and it’s worth gold.
Since 2017, Grupo Firme has been under the management of Isael Gutierrez, who heads the Music VIP Entertainment label. Today, Grupo Firme is on the radar – as spontaneous as ever – but exports its music internationally.
On the Billboard charts, the group has six entries on Regional Mexican Airplay, five entries on Hot Latin Songs and six entries on Latin Airplay. The Lenin Ramirez assisted “Yo Ya No Vuelvo Contigo” reached the Top 10 on both Hot Latin Songs and Latin Airplay and peaked at No. 1 on the Mexican Regional Airplay Rankings dated June 6, 2020.
Currently, Grupo Firme is doing the rounds with their single “Enloqueceme”, which is a scholarly band-pop version of the classic OV7, performed by Caz’s brother and the band’s second singer, Johnny Caz. They’re also making waves with some innovative pop-urban collaborations born this year, including works with Reik, Carin Leon, C-Kan, and JD Pantoja to name a few.
âIt all happened so fast, but we merge with other genres, and people accepted it,â Caz says. âYes, we sing Regional Mexican, but our sound is very versatile. We make music not to compete, but to share. This is how I describe Grupo Firme.
