Live in Hollywood is the second live album by Mexican pop band RBD, released on April 4, 2006 in the United States and Mexico. Live in Hollywood was recorded on RBD's first concert in Los Angeles, California on January 21, 2006 at the Pantages Theatre, as part of the group's 'Tour Generación 2006' world tour. The live album was accompanied by the same-day release of a live concert DVD, also titled Live in Hollywood. The acoustic music that appears on the album was recorded live, though in a way posing a different style to the group's previous Tour Generación RBD En Vivo.

On April 19, 2006, the first single off the album was released, a new song titled "No Pares", which was sung solely by Dulce María. The song proved to be a total success on Mexican radio. The song was written by former Mexican pop star Lynda Thomas and producer Carlos Lara.

Background and release[edit]

The day in which the album was recorded, we arrived the day before and I was told "you're going to sing this song... they're going to play it with a guitar and you're going to sing it" ...basically it has a message that people should not stop dreaming... and you always have to fight, that's the message of the song.
Dulce María talking about "No Pares", the live album's first single.

The live album was recorded on January 21, 2006 at the show performed in the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, California, which was part of RBD's second concert tour, titled 'Tour Generación 2006' or 'Nuestro Amor Tour'. The concert was the first the band performed in the United States. The show itself had a visually colorful and acoustic style, even counting with the support of a gospel choir.

One of the members of RBD, Christian Chávez, explained during an interview that the songs recorded belonged to the Nuestro Amor album, the difference being that this time the songs were acoustic, and added: "There are many instruments, strings, percussions, and the finished product is something very cool, more intimate".

The album was simultaneously put on sale on April 4, 2006 in Mexico, Brazil, and the United States. The live concert DVD recorded on January 21, 2006 was also released the same day. In Spain, the live album was released on December 11, 2006.[2] The release is mostly composed of the songs included in RBD's second studio album, Nuestro Amor.

Singles[edit]

On April 19, 2006, the first single off the album was released, titled "No Pares". The song is performed solely by Dulce María. The song was written by Lynda Thomas and producer Carlos Lara. The single's music video was taken from footage in the live DVD, and was released to promote it. In 2007, the song won the award for 'Latin Song of the Year' at the 2007 Orgullosamente Latino Awards.

In North America, the album became a commercial success. In Mexico, the release reached #14 on the Mexican Albums Chart.

Notes
  • "Me Voy" is the Spanish cover version of Kelly Clarkson's "Gone", originally released on Clarkson's Multi-Platinum album Breakaway (2004).
  • "Feliz Cumpleaños" is the Spanish version of Mikeyla's "Happy Worst Day".
  • Although the DVD featured the original live audio, the CD had re-recorded songs, mostly by Anahí, due to her vocal problem at the time the concert was recorded.
