"Empezar Desde Cero" (English: "Begin From Zero") is a song recorded by Mexican pop group RBD for their fourth Spanish studio album, Empezar Desde Cero (2007). It was released as the second single from the album. On January 29, 2008, Esmas confirmed the release of the song, after it won the official next single poll on the group's official website with 40% of the votes, leaving "Y No Puedo Olvidarte" behind with 30% of the votes.[1]

"Empezar Desde Cero" is only sung by Maite. It is the band's fourth solo-single (third in Spanish) after "Sálvame" (Spanish, sung by Anahi), "No Pares" (Spanish, sung by Dulce María) and "Tu Amor" (English, sung by Christian).

Music video[edit]

The video was shot on February 28, 2008 and premiered a month later on March 25 through RBD's Gyggs community.

The music video is based on the 70's. It shows Maite waking up, taking a bath, putting clothing on, whereafter she meets her friends (Dulce and Anahí). So on, to the subway, she finds Christopher and Alfonso to wall up Maite in order for her to quickly change clothes.

A new scene starts at the end of the chorus, showing Maite and Christian flirting, and then, Dulce María, Anahí and Maite tanning at the beach, and Christopher and Alfonso walking on the beach. It cuts to a scene where Maite is singing as a pop diva, dressed in a black jacket, it cuts again, showing the entire group having fun together, and then the day ends.

A new day starts, showing Maite in her routine, but now, meeting all her friends together and singing with them (Dulce and Christopher talking inside a phone booth). The video ends with everyone singing together over drinks.
