RBD is a Mexican Pop group that gained popularity from Televisa's teenage-oriented telenovela Rebelde.
RBD debuted in December 2004 with the album Rebelde, released through EMI. The main writers for the project were DJ Kafka and Max di Carlo, and their songs proved just as popular as the show.
The first three singles ("Rebelde", "Solo Quédate En Silencio" and "Sálvame") were all number one hits in Mexico, with the fourth single, "Un Poco De Tu Amor" reaching number two.
In 2005 a portuguese languaged edition of the album was released for the Brazilian market called Rebelde (Edição Brasil). And though no english languaged edition was released, Rebelde sold well in the States, breaking into the Top 100 of the album chart (#95) and reaching number two on the Top Latin Albums chart.
Early in 2006, they RBD released a portuguese version of Nuestro Amor, entitled Nosso Amor Rebelde (Edição Brasil), specially for the Brazilian fans. Not long after, RBD toured the United States for the first time, issuing a second CD/DVD in April, titled Live In Hollywood, which peaked at number 6 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums Chart.
2006 also brought RBD a nomination for the Latin Grammy Awards in the category 'Best Pop Album by a Group or Duo' for their second studio album Nuestro Amor.
RBD was nominated for the 2006 Latin Grammy Award for Album of the Year, but lost to La Oreja de Van Gogh's Guapa. They are also popular in non-Spanish speaking countries, most notably in Brazil. RBD has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.
