As lead singer of the Latin pop group La 5ª Estación, Natalia Jiménez scored hit after hit during the early 2000s, sending three songs to the top of the Spanish charts while racking up nine Top 40 hits in Mexico. She co-wrote most of the songs with her partner, guitarist Ángel Reyero, and toured the world heavily in support of the duo's platinum-selling albums. When La 5ª Estación decided to take a break in November 2010, Jiménez took the opportunity to focus on her solo career, kicking things off with an appearance on the popular Ricky Martin song "Lo Mejor de Mi Vida Eres Tú." "Por Ser Tu Mujer," her first official single as a solo artist, appeared in April 2011, and her debut album, Natalia Jiménez, followed later that summer. As usual, Jiménez assumed a good deal of creative control over the record, writing the bulk of its 12 tracks and co-producing the entire set. In 2013, Jiménez featured on "La Noche de los Dos," a Daddy Yankee hit, and one year later she began working as a coach for Telemundo's talent show La Voz Kids. By the end of 2014 she was charting with a new single, "Quedate con Ella." The album Creo en Mi appeared in early 2015, and its second single, "Algo Brilla en Mi," also charted high in Latin circles. In the fall of 2016, she dropped the Jenni Rivera tribute album, Homenaje a la Gran Senora.
