The Spanish singer, songwriter, and actor is known for his hit songs “Mi Canto” and “Bebeto.” El Bebeto was born in Madrid on October 13th, 1955.
El Bebeto is a male singer, songwriter and producer. He was born in 1978. His birth name is Juan Pablo Sevilla López.
El Bebeto is a Mexican regional music award-winning and charting singer from Guasave, Sinaloa. His crystalline tenor voice and beautiful features propelled him into the Mexican popular culture spotlight at the age of 18 with his Universal debut Quiero Que Seas Tu, a compilation of corridos and romanticos, and he’s stayed there ever since. “Eres Mi Necesidad,” his song from 2011, charted on six separate charts. In 2012, he had a number two success outside of his preferred genre with the electro-cumbia song “Intento,” which he co-wrote with 3BallMTY and America Sierra. The songs “Lo Más Interesante” and “No Te So Importante” from Bebeto’s successful 2016 album No Que No: Banda y Tololoche cemented his fame in the United States as well as Central and South America. Bebeto’s voice is so emotionally expressive and powerful in his interpretations that he has been able to regularly acquire renowned composers such as Horacio Palencia, Jess Omar Tarazón, Gerardo Coronel, and Espinoza Paz to write for him. Mi Persona Preferida, the singer’s 2019 album, was completely written and produced by the latter.
Carlos Alberto Garca Villanueva, better known as El Bebeto, was born in Sinaloa in 1989. He started singing at the age of seven, and by the age of thirteen, he was performing with his father at parties, picnics, and other community gatherings. He was a member of the band Estrella Blanca until he was 16 years old, when he went to Mexicali, Baja California Norte, to join a band named La nica Estrella, but he left that band soon after to return home and join Banda Sair as lead singer. He stayed with them for four years, during which time he met A&R guy Jose Serrano, who wanted to sign him as a solo artist. Bebeto’s father died unexpectedly before he could sign, throwing his whole life into disarray. He made the decision to give up music and his ambitions in order to return home, attend school, and be closer to his mother and brothers.
Serrano, on the other hand, was not entirely out of the picture. He landed Bebeto a contract with Universal’s Disa three years later, with the help of mutual friend and composer Luciano Luna. Quiero Que Seas Tu, his first album, was released in 2010 and quickly established him on the radio and on YouTube. The album was a flop, but he had a smash single the next year with “Eres Mi Necesidad.” After then, Bebeto’s fortunes changed: he was asked to perform at higher-profile events and to tour as an opener for international artists. In 2012, he returned to the top of the charts with the electro cumbia blockbuster “Intento,” which he co-wrote with 3BallMTY and America Sierra. In the Mexican Regional category, he received three Billboard awards for the song: “Theme of the Year,” “Theme of the Year, Vocal Collaboration,” and “Theme of the Year Duranguense/Grupero/Cumbia.” The next year, it was nominated in four categories but did not win any. Luciano Luna produced his second album, Ese Soy Yo, which was released in 2012. The majority of the songs, which include cumbias, rancheras, and romanticos, were previously unpublished works by renowned composers such as Adrián Pieragostino, Sierra, and Palencia. Sierra’s debut song, “Corazón de Acero,” was a radio and streaming success, and was followed by “Lo Legal.” While Bebeto was now able to travel as a headliner in support of the album, it was his third album, En Tu Mirada, released in 2014, that propelled him to the top. It topped the radio and streaming charts, and its songs “Lo Más Interesante” and “No Te So Importante” hit number one in Mexico back-to-back. Bebeto’s social media and YouTube accounts blew up, and he became a household celebrity. On the categories of “Soloist of the Year,” “Video Más Pedido,” and “Most Influential Artist in Social Networks,” he was nominated for three Bandamax 2014 awards. On the charting electro song “De las 12 a las 12,” he teamed with 3BallMTY. In 2015, he released Eternamente Mexicano with Sus Banda Patria Chica, a mariachi-themed release. Its song “Lo Legal” charted in the Top 40 of the worldwide Mexican Regional Songs list. He released the banda album No Que No: Banda y Tololoche the next year. Two of the band’s three songs, “Como Olvidarte” and “Mente Degenerada,” reached the top of the Mexican Regional Songs and streaming charts, respectively. The album debuted in the Mexican Regional Albums Top Ten. El Bebeto embarked on a year-and-a-half tour that brought him throughout Mexico, Latin America, and the United States, as well as radio and newspaper interviews and appearances on television variety programs. For Mi Persona Preferida in 2019, Bebeto collaborated with Paz. The promotional songs “Seremos” and “Tiempo” were both high on streaming charts across the spectrum and at Mexican Regional Songs when they were released in March.
