1) NATALIA (SPAIN) (NATALIA RODR?GUEZ GALLEGO)
Natalia Rodr?guez Gallego (born December 11, 1982) is the full name of the Spanish singer Natalia. She was a contestant on the successful Spanish TV show Operaci?n Triunfo (Spanish American Idol) in 2001, where she finished 14th.
In 2002, she released her highly successful album 'No soy un ?ngel' (I'm Not an Angel), which didn't journey out of the genre pop music. She sold about +250.000. This album has got 3 singles. The first it was called 'Vas a volverme loca' (You got me going crazy) and it was a hit in Spain. The second one, 'La noche lleg?' (Crazy tonight) it was a little more latin, inspirated in 'La isla Bonita' of Madonna. This song was very succesful on summer of 2002. The third and last single from this album, it was 'No soy un angel', a dance song. This single has not received any promotion, but it sound in all clubs around Spain.
In 2003, Natalia released 'Besa mi piel' (Kiss My Skin), which equally was a success. On this album, she included 4 of her own compositions (including the first single, also called 'Besa Mi Piel'). The second single was 'Solo tu amor' (Only your love), a rock song, which was very succesful in radios. Natalia turns a little more rocker, and during the promotion she always wore leather sexy red trusers, and leather tops. Finally, she selected 'No, no' (No, no), a R&B song, which it wasn't very succesful in Spain, because the R&B is not very apreciated in Spain, but the song was included in some hit recopilations.
In 2004, she released 'Natalia', her third album. The first single was a track penned by Lucie Silvas called 'Sombras (Shadows). The video (which featured Natalia in a haunted house being seduced by a ghost) was seemed too inappropriate for young children and it wasn't shown on Spanish TV until the late evening, which caused a flop in sales. Amid this, the second single, 'Que No Puede Ser' (That it cannot be), became a lot more successful than the first single, due to another expensive video and a big promotional tour across Spain, where Natalia sang live on many important TV shows. This album, however, was mainly based on rock music. It included a version of ACDC's 'Highway to Hell'.
Natalia has appeared on many other artists albums. In 2004, she appeared on an album by Spanish singer Tony Aguilar on a song called 'Vuelve'. With addition to this, Natalia has appeared on AT's album 'Electric Grease' with the song 'I Love This Game', which was released across Europe.
Natalia took a break for a year. However, in September 2005, she made her comeback in style. First of all, she won the Spanish reality TV program 'Gente de Primera (#1 People), where celebrities take an anonymous singer and they transform them into pop stars.
In June 2006, Natalia released her fourth album, 'Nada es lo que crees' (Nothing is as you believe). It got to #25, 4 places lower than 'Natalia'. The first single, 'Loco por m?' (Crazy about me), got to number 3 in the Spanish chart, solely on Internet Downloads. In the video of 'Loco por mi' we could see the sexiest Natalia ever, and with this, she show the people that she was not yet the innocent girl that all thought.
