The Triplets (band)
The Triplets were a Latin pop trio from Mexico. Composed of the triplets Diana, Sylvia, and Vicky Villegas (all born April 18, 1959) of an American mother and a Mexican father, the group recorded in both English and Spanish. They first gained recognition after winning the MTV Basement Contest in 1986 for the song "Translate."
They scored a hit single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1991 with "You Don't Have to Go Home Tonight". They released a VHS tape in 1991 as well. Subsequent hits followed on the Billboard Latin charts.
"You Don't Have to Go Home Tonight" also reached the Dutch charts at the time. In 1995 its success was eclipsed by the Dutch-language version ("Je Hoeft Niet naar Huis Vannacht") that Marco Borsato recorded.
