Gloria Trevi (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈgloɾja ˈtɾeβi]; born Gloria de los Ángeles Treviño Ruiz on February 15, 1968) is a Mexican singer-songwriter, dancer, actress, television hostess, music video director and businesswoman.
1985-1995: Early success and initial breakout
In 1985, Trevi became a member of a short-lived girl group named Boquitas Pintadas. After the group broke up in 1988, she approached Sergio Andrade for the production of her first solo album, ¿Qué Hago Aquí? (What Am I Doing Here?), which was released in 1989 and scored a number one hit across Latin America, "Dr. Psiquiatra". Trevi was often dubbed as the Madonna of Mexico.
In 1991, Trevi released her second album, Tu Ángel de la Guarda (Your Guardian Angel), which is widely regarded as one of her best albums. "Pelo Suelto", the lead single from the album, was a worldwide success, reaching number in several Latin America countries and in Spain. Her third album, Me Siento Tan Sola (I Feel So Lonely), was released in 1992 garnering another hit, "Zapatos Viejos". Trevi starred in the film of the same name in 1993. In 1994, she released two singles, "El Recuento De Los Daños" and "La Papa Sin Catsup", from her fourth studio album Más Turbada Que Nunca (More Turbulent than Ever). Both singles reigned the Billboard Top Latin Albums. In December 1995, Trevi released her final studio album of the decade, and her final album produced by Adrade, Si Me Llevas Contigo (If You Take Me with You). The album produced two moderate hits, "Ella Que Nunca Fue Ella" ("She Who Never Was Herself") and "Si Me Llevas Contigo" ("If You Take Me with You"). On March 13, 1996, Trevi announced that she would retire to care for Andrade during his cancer battle. She offered her last two concerts at the National Auditorium, 16 and 17 March.
2004-present: Post-arrest career and continued success
Following her release, Trevi released her sixth studio album, Como Nace el Universo ("How the Universe was Born"). The album was preceded by the moderate hit "En el Medio de la Tempestad" ("In the Midst of the Storm"). While her sixth record was well-received as her comeback, her seventh studio album Una Rosa Blu was a massive critical and commercial success. Released in 2007, the album produced several successful singles included "Psicofonia, Pruebamelo" ("Prove it to Me"), "En Favor de la Soledad" ("In Favor of Solitude"), "Cinco Minutos" ("Five Minutes"), and "Todos Me Miran" ("Everyone Looks at Me"). In 2010, Trevi released her eighth, self-titled studio album Gloria. The album included the successful singles "Vestida de Azucar" ("Dressed in Sugar"), "Fuego con Fuego" ("Fire with Fire"), "Me Rio de Ti" ("I Laugh at You"), "La Noche" ("The Night"), and "Esa Hembra es Mala" ("That Female is Evil"). The latter was used as the theme song for the telenovela Teresa.
In 2013, Trevi released her tenth studio album De Pelicula. The album produced the single "No Querias Lastimarme" ("You Didn't Want to Hurt Me"), which was a critical and massive success. The song reached the top ten of the Latin Billboard charts and topped the charts of several Latin American countries. In 2015, Trevi embarked on a new passion project, which would become her eleventh studio album, El Amor. The concept album included covers of popular Latin American love ballads, including previous songs from Trevi's catalog as well as original work. Trevi had two alter-egos for the album, Mr. Trevi and Mrs. Gloria. The album debuted at the top of the Billboard charts and produced two successful singles, "Como Yo Te Amo" ("How I Love You") and "Las Pequeñas Cosas" ("The Little Things"). In 2017, Trevi collaborated with fellow Mexican artist Alejandra Guzmán for the album Versus. The album included two singles, "Cuando un Hombre te Enamora" and "Mas Buena". The two singers embarked on the Versus World Tour during summer and fall 2017.
Trevi married Armando Gómez, a lawyer, in 2009. She now lives in McAllen, Texas, with Gómez and her two sons. Trevi received the BMI President's Award on March 2, 2016 at the 23rd BMI Latin Awards for her impact on Latin pop.
In 2000, Trevi, Andrade and backup singer Maria Raquenel Portillo were arrested in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on charges of corrupting minors. A year later, while in prison, Trevi announced that she was pregnant. The father was Andrade, according to DNA tests by Brazilian authorities (Trevi and her defense claimed that the results of the DNA test had been doctored). Trevi was cleared of the charges in 2004, due to lack of evidence, after spending four years and eight months in prison.
