Latin pop trio Reik formed in Mexicali, Baja California, in 2003. After recording a demo that yielded the Mexican underground club favorites "Levemente" and "Ahora sin Ti," singer Jesús Alberto Navarro Rosas and guitarist Julio Ramírez Eguía invited backing vocalist/guitarist Gilberto "Bibi" Marin Espinoza to join the lineup in early 2004. After signing to Sony Music a few months later, Reik began work on their self-titled debut LP. The album generated three consecutive Mexican chart-toppers, all of which crossed over to the U.S. Latin pop charts. The trio also received a Latin Grammy nomination in the Best New Artist category. ~ Jason Ankeny
