Guadalupe Rivera Saavedra, known better by his professional name Lupillo Rivera, was born in Long Beach, California USA, on 30 January 1972 – his zodiac sign is Aquarius, he holds American nationality, and is of Mexican descent. He gained recognition in 2010, when his album “Tu Esclavo y Amo” won him a Grammy Award.
Lupillo was raised in Long Beach alongside his sister Jenni Rivera, by their father Pedro Rivera, and their mother Rosa Saavedra; his sister Jenni was a singer-songwriter and actress, who died on 9 December 2012 aged 43, when her plane crashed.
Lupillo studied at Long Beach Polytechnic High School, and upon matriculating in 1990, he chose to focus on music, rather than to pursue a college degree.
He initially wanted to become a restaurateur, but as his father was the owner of the studio Cintas Acuario, he gave his son a job. Lupillo was hired to be a talent agent, and to search for performers in local bars, but instead he became a singer himself.
He released his debut album “Selena, La Estrella” in 1995, and in 1999 two albums, entitled “El Moreno” and “Puros Corridos Macizos”. He released seven albums in the following two years, and gained recognition with his 2001 album “Despreciado”, which topped the Billboard Top Latin Albums Chart.
In 2002, Lupillo released his albums “Amorcito Corazon” and “Los Hemanos Mas Buscados”, and in 2004, his album “Con Mis Propias Manos” came out, again topping the Billboard Top Latin Albums Chart. In 2006, Lupillo’s album “Entre Copas y Botellas” was released, and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2010, Lupillo released his album “24 Horas”, but hasn’t since been active in the music industry, although he hasn’t officially retired.
He has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, winning one in 2010 for Best Banda Album, for “Tu Esclavo y Amo”. Lupillo has also been nominated for three Latin Grammy Awards and seven Lo Nuestro Awards, winning three in 2002, for Regional Mexican Male Artist of the Year, Banda Artist of the Year, and Regional Mexican Album of the Year.
