Billboard and Telemundo will pay tribute to Intocable in recognition to their musical contributions during an outstanding 17-year career that has broken cultural barriers and re-defined the Norteño genre.
Intocable will also perform during the Billboard Awards show and the group and their record label Good I Music celebrate being nominated in the categories Duo o Group of the Year Regional Mexican-Album and Record Label of the Year “Regional Mexican Albums” respectively.
These achievements are added to an extraordinary career that in 2011 took an unexpected turn when the group decided to leave behind the record company to which they belonged and risked opening their own. Despite industry criticism, intocable proved to have made a wise decision launching as their first material Intocable 2011, an album that in a short span of time has become a musical classic, launching 4 highly successful singles. Robarte un Beso and Prometí achieved #1 in radio, Arrepientete placed in the Top 10 and their most recent hit Llueve is quickly following the same radio path.
Their 15 albums and various compilations have sold millions of units worldwide. The group has positioned 19 albums in the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums Charts, 11 of which have achieved the #1 spot and 15 of the 44 songs that have entered the charts have reached the #1 position of Billboard Regional Mexican Music Charts. Intocable also made history in 2011, by being the first of their genre to appear at the famed Dallas Cowboys Stadium during the halftime of Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins and last month became the first of their genre to perform at the Arena Mexico.
The Billboard Lifetime Achievement Award will be awarded during the Billboard Awards which will be held at the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami in Florida this coming Thursday April 26th at 7pm and will be broadcast live on Telemundo.
