A Latin pop trio from Monterrey, Mexico, 3BallMTY popularized the tribal guarachero style stateside with their full-length album debut, Inténtalo, which topped the Regional Mexican Albums chart in 2011.
The trio is comprised of Erick Rincón
, Sheeqo Beat (born Sergio Zavala), and DJ Otto (born Albert Presenda), all of whom were teenagers at the time of Inténtalo's release on Fonovisa
, a division of Universal Music Latino
. Produced by Toy Selectah
, the album was instrumental in popularized tribal guarachero stateside. Synonymous with pointy boots and skinny jeans, tribal guarachero combines Mexican cumbia with cutting-edge electronic dance music. 3BallMTY were far and away the style's most successful representatives. Peaking at number two on the Top Latin Albums chart, Inténtalo spawned a hit single in its title track. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
