Celestial (English: Heavenly) is the third studio album recorded by Mexican pop group RBD. It was released on November 23, 2006 in Mexico and on November 24, 2006 in the United States and the rest of Latin America by the EMI label.[1]

The album was recorded in Los Angeles, California and Mexico City, Mexico and was produced by Carlos Lara and Armando Ávila. RBD also recorded a special version of the album for their fanbase in Brazil. This edition of the album, recorded in Portuguese, was released on December 4, 2006 and was titled Celestial (Versão Brasil).

In the United States, the album reached number one on Billboard magazine's Latin Pop Albums and Top Latin Albums charts. The album reached positions #2 and #9 in the albums charts of Spain and Mexico, respectively, and sold 40,000 copies in the former country and 150,000 in the latter, gaining Gold certification in Spain and being certified Platinum + Gold in Mexico. In Brazil, the album reached position #3, while in Ecuador, Romania and Chile the album was certified Gold, with sales of 5,700, 10,000, and 12,000 copies, respectively. The album also charted at #37 in Croatia.

"Ser O Parecer" served as the lead single for the album, and was released on September 18, 2006 and had the support of a CGI-assisted music video. The song garnered great success, being number one in various music charts worldwide for weeks. With the song, RBD gained the best single chart performance of their career on the US Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, where it became their first #1 hit, while also debuting and peaking at number 84 on the main Billboard Hot 100. The album's second single was "Celestial", which had an accompanying hippie-style music video. The third single released was "Bésame Sin Miedo", which had its music video filmed in Romania. Lastly, "Dame" was released as the final promotional single from Celestial.

Background and release[edit]

"We've selected "Celestial" as the second single due to the surveys we have conducted with the fans, and the polls they've been sending us and they've demonstrated that the song is one of their favorites, as well that they have managed to connect really well with the lyrics and the feeling of the song, which is Carlos Lara's, and we worked together on the lyrics."
Pedro Damián on the release of the album's second single.[2]

Celestial was released through EMI on November 23, 2006 in Mexico and on November 24, 2006 in the United States and the rest of Latin America. On December 4, 2006, a Portuguese language version of the album was released in Brazil, including 8 tracks in Portuguese and 3 in Spanish.

The album was produced by Carlos Lara and Armando Ávila, who were responsible for the success of RBD's first two studio albums, Rebelde and Nuestro Amor, with Pedro Damián serving as executive producer. The release contains a two-minute sample of tracks that RBD would include in their English language debut, Rebels, which was put on sale on December 19, 2006.[3]

The album included the Spanish language cover version of "The Little Voice", originally recorded by Swedish singer Sahlene and later by American recording artist Hilary Duff on her album Metamorphosis (2003); the cover was titled "Tu Dulce Voz". Another cover track on the album, "Bésame Sin Miedo", is the Spanish language version of the song "Kiss Me Like You Mean It", by singer and actress Sara Paxton.

The album was re-released as Celestial (Fan Edition) in Mexico on June 26, 2007 and on July 10, 2007 in the United States. The Mexican version of Celestial (Fan Edition) contains a CD with the tracklist of the standard version of the album plus "The Family", the theme song from the group's 2007 sitcom RBD: La Familia, and remixes of "Tu Amor", "Tal Vez Después" and "Ser O Parecer".[4] The CD also has Opendisc enhanced content, so when inserted into a PC, it grants access to an exclusive website with photo galleries, digital downloads and more. The reissue also includes a DVD with the band's exclusive rehearsals of songs like "Nuestro Amor", karaoke of ten of the group's hits and the music videos for "Tu Amor", "Ser O Parecer" and "Celestial". The US version of the Celestial (Fan Edition) includes a different DVD with the group's soundcheck performance on Walmart Soundcheck and interviews with the band members.[5]

To promote the album, four singles were released. The album's lead single, "Ser O Parecer", was a success all over Latin America, also managing to top the Mexican airplay and US Latin singles charts. After the success of the first single, RBD released three singles simultaneously for promotion all over America. While Mexico got "Celestial" first, "Bésame Sin Miedo" was sent first to Colombia, and at the same time the United States and Puerto Rico were able to hear "Dame" on their local radio stations.

Artwork[edit]

RBD member Anahí was put in charge of the image and style of the group for the album, so for the wardrobe she got inspiration from urban clothing, attempting to emulate the clothing of street beggars.[6] The album's photoshoot took place in some train tracks, alleys and urban settings in Los Angeles, California.[7] The cover artwork for the standard edition of the album shows the members of RBD looking intently to the camera, wearing ragged clothing, in front of a backdrop of what seems to be blue sheet metal. The CD backcover shows the group on some train tracks.[8]

For the cover artwork of the fan edition of the album, a picture from the previous photoshoot was used, which showed the group in front of a blue background with fuchsia-color details.[9]

On the Portuguese edition of the album, a photograph taken during filming of the music video for "Ser O Parecer", which was filmed in Brazil, was used as the cover artwork. The picture shows the group in tattered clothing inside some type of abandoned building.[10]

Promotion[edit]

Singles[edit]

On September 18, 2006, the first single off Celestial, titled "Ser O Parecer", was released. Two days later, the Portuguese version of the single, "Ser Ou Parecer", was released in Brazil.[11] In the United States, the single reached the #1 spot on both the Billboard Latin Pop Airplay and the Billboard Hot Latin Songs charts.[12] The single also ranked at position #84 on the all-encompassing US Billboard Hot 100, becoming RBD's first Spanish single to do so.[13] The single received a nomination at the 2007 Premios Juventud in the category "My Favorite Ringtone".[14] The single's music video was directed by Esteban Madrazo and was filmed in São Paulo, Brazil. The music video was also nominated at the 2007 Premios Juventud in the category "My Favorite Music Video".[14]

On March 11, 2007, the album's second single, the title track "Celestial", was released in Mexico and the rest of Latin America. The single was chosen through a survey made to RBD's fanbase. The single reached position #40 on the US Billboard Latin Pop Airplay chart.[15] The single's music video was filmed in Mexico, and shows the members of RBD as hippies enjoying a day in a field between the volcanoes Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl, and was also directed by Esteban Madrazo.[16] The single was also nominated at the 2007 Premios Juventud in the categories "My Favorite Music Video" and "My Favorite Ringtone".[14]

On June 28, 2007, "Bésame Sin Miedo", the third and final official single from the album was released. The single ranked at #15 on the US Billboard Latin Pop Airplay chart and at #30 on the US Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.[12] The single's accompanying music video was filmed at Bran Castle, popularly known as the castle of Count Dracula, in Transylvania, Romania.[17]

On August 12, 2007, "Dame" was released as a promotional single only in the United States. The promotional release managed to chart at #14 on the Billboard Latin Pop Airplay chart and at #38 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.[12]

Live performances[edit]

In 2006, RBD presented themselves in the American TV show Sábado Gigante, where they performed "Ser O Parecer". In the 2006 edition of Walmart Soundcheck, a program sponsored by the Walmart retail chain to promote albums being released, the group sang "Ser O Parecer", the album's official lead single. During the group's 2006 visit to Brazil, they performed "Ser O Parecer" on the Brazilian TV show Domingo Legal. In December 2006, the group performed "Ser O Parecer" on AOL Music; in this particular performance, however, Anahí was not present.

In 2007, the group participated for a second time on Walmart Soundcheck. This time, they performed the tracks "Bésame Sin Miedo", "Dame", and "Celestial".[18] That year, the band also appeared on the music television show CD USA, where they performed "Celestial" and "Ser O Parecer". In June 2007, during their visit to Romania, the group performed the track "Ser O Parecer" on Acasă TV. On July 19, 2007, the group attended the 4th annual Premios Juventud, where they performed their single "Bésame Sin Miedo".[19] On July 20, the group returned to Sábado Gigante and performed "Celestial" and "Bésame Sin Miedo".[20] On July 25, the group appeared at the Ritmoson Latino-organized concert titled "Confesiones en Concierto", where they performed "Ser O Parecer", along with "Quizá", "Bésame Sin Miedo", and "Celestial".[21] In August 2007, the group appeared on the Mexican TV show Muévete, where they also performed "Ser O Parecer". In September 2007, the group performed "Ser O Parecer" on the Mexican daily morning program Hoy and appeared on the ninth episode of the reality show Buscando a Timbiriche, La Nueva Banda to perform "Bésame Sin Miedo". In December 2007, the group appeared on the Mexican Teletón, where they performed their singles "Celestial" and "Bésame Sin Miedo".[22] On December 12, RBD performed their #1 hit "Ser O Parecer" at the Premios Fox Sports awards show in Miami Beach, Florida.[23] On December 15, the group appeared on the TV program Mi TRL, broadcast in the United States by MTV Tr3s, and performed "Celestial" and "Bésame Sin Miedo". To close 2007, the band also appeared on the Mexican TV program Otro Rollo and on the Miami-based El Show de Cristina, where they performed "Bésame Sin Miedo", "Celestial" and "Ser O Parecer" at both venues.[24]

After the promotion for Celestial had officially ended, on February 1, 2008, RBD performed at the festivities preceding Super Bowl XLII, where they sang again "Ser O Parecer".[25] On March 20, 2008, the group performed their single "Bésame Sin Miedo" on the US television special Feliz 2008, hosted by Don Francisco. On March 25, 2008, the group appeared in Spain's TVE gala, where they again performed their successful single "Ser O Parecer". On July 19, 2008, the band performed at the concert organized to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of Televisa in Monterrey, Mexico, where they sang "Celestial", "Bésame Sin Miedo" and "Ser O Parecer".[26] Lastly, on October 25, 2008, the group performed songs from Celestial in one of the last performances of their career at the Exa TV concert in Mexico, which was broadcast through the Mexican television network TeleHit.[27]

Tour[edit]

On April 20, 2007, RBD started their third worldwide concert tour, titled Tour Celestial 2007, in Guayaquil, Ecuador. The tour visited the United States and Europe, as well as Central and South America. The band also continued to increase their string of successes internationally;[28] the band's visits to Romania and Spain during 2007 surprised the Latin American entertainment industry, while giving the band the opportunity to win over the Spanish music market, one of the most competitive music markets in the world. On June 22, 2007, as a result of their successful performances in Spain, as part of the band's tour, in a unique concert in the Vicente Calderón Stadium in Madrid in front of 40,000 people, they recorded their third live album and live concert video, Hecho en España, where the group displayed their unique material and their command of the stage.[29] In early October 2007, it was announced through Roptus.com that the rest of the tour was postponed until later announcement. The reason given through RBD's website was that the group wanted to give their public a better show by performing songs from their then upcoming album Empezar Desde Cero, which would be released on November 20, 2007. With the tour, RBD collected $5,400,000 in ticket sales just in North America, and sold a combined total of 293,742 tickets to their concerts worldwide.

Territorio da Música 2/5 stars

Despite its commercial success, Celestial received mixed reviews from music critics. Jason Birchmeier from AllMusic gave the album a 3.5 out of 5 stars rating, and commented in his review that "producers Carlos Lara and Armando Ávila [...] stick with their winning formula and wind up with a few standout songs: "Tal Vez Después", "Ser O Parecer," and "Dame," which are front-loaded for a catchy kickoff to the album." He added: "In the end, such a factory-line approach undoubtedly amounts to generic music, and indeed, Celestial isn't all that different from Nuestro Amor (however, the departure of songwriter Max di Carlo, who had written [the group's] initial hits, including their theme song "Rebelde", does differentiate this from their superior debut album). But as with any heavily invested mass-marketed product, it generally pays off to give customers what they want and expect, and Celestial should indeed please the teen pop group's hemisphere-spanning fan base as well as the suits at EMI[...]."[32]

Joey Guerra from Amazon.com debated in his review: "It would be nice to compliment the group's maturity, but there's almost none on this plastic collection of pop pastries. If anything, the group's vocals seem even more limited -particularly the boys- maybe because they haven't had a break since RBD-mania hit." In his review, Guerra showed disregard towards the voice of RBD band member Dulce María, commenting that her voice "still squeals with all the weight of a helium balloon". Finally, Guerra also commented unfavorably about the preview of the group's English album.[31] However, MSN Music users gave the album a 4.5 out of 5 stars rating.

Catia Dechen, from the Terra Networks-affiliated Territorio da Música website, highlited the group's success, and reviewed: "Celestial without a doubt reached the success in sales as [the band's] previous albums, as the group resulted in being all the rage with the teenage public of various countries as well as with the media, is charismatic and keeps in the new album their proven formula for conquest: Beautiful youths and a pop repertoire easy to digest. The songs continue without losing quality, it goes without saying, but the fact is that the 'rebeldes' are America's favorites".[33]

Commercial performance[edit]

The album enjoyed great success in North America upon release. The album sold 137,000 copies[34] in 4 days from its release in the United States, making it debut at number 15 on the Billboard 200 and at number 1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums ranking, where it charted for 9 consecutive weeks.[35] The album, however, achieved the feat without a full week of registered album sales, due to its release being on a Friday, by then close to Billboard's tracking week. Despite both facts, the album became RBD's first and only album to peak in the top 20 of the Billboard 200. In 2008, Keith Caulfield of Billboard magazine revealed that Celestial had sold a total of 498,000 copies in the United States since its release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[36] In Mexico, the album debuted at number forty-six on the Mexican Top 100 Albums chart, having sold on its first day of release 100,000 copies.[37][38] On its tenth charting week, the album climbed to number nine in the Mexican Top 100 Albums Chart.[39] Due to the eventual sales of over 150,000 copies in Mexico, Celestial was certified Platinum + Gold by the Asociación Mexicana de Productores de Fonogramas y Videogramas (AMPROFON).

In Europe, the album also met with a warm reception. In Spain, the album was released on March 12, 2007, and debuted and peaked at #2 for two weeks on the Spanish Albums Chart.[39] The PROMUSICAE association awarded the album a Gold certification for the sales of 40,000 copies in Spain. In Croatia, the album reached position #37 on the country's album chart. In Romania, the album was also certified Gold for the sales of 10,000 copies in the country.

In South America, the album also met with a welcome reception since its release. In Brazil, the album charted at #3 on the Brazilian Albums Chart, where its eventually-released Portuguese-language counterpart only reached #17. In Chile, the Federación Internacional de la Industria Fonográfica (IFPI) awarded the album a Gold certification for the sales of 5,700 albums. According to IFPI, the album was awarded the same certification in Ecuador, but for sales of 3,000 copies in the country.

By 2008, the album had sold an estimated 8,000,000 copies worldwide.[40]
