Mexican teen group RBD are heading up to studio for their last album before officially breaking up. The not-yet-titled album is scheduled for release in early 2009. "Later they'll record a new album that's slated for an early 2009 release," says their producer, Pedro Damian.
In addition, this year the group are also on the work of compiling their fifteen most popular songs in an album, tentatively called "Greatest Hits of RBD". In a statement, Pedro says, "A new disc, called Greatest Hits of RBD, will be released this year with 15 of their most popular songs."
Beside working on their greatest hits and farewell album, the band also plan to make a saying-goodbye movie. "We also want to make a movie, but we'll see how that pans out with the tour and saying goodbye to their fans," says Pedro in a further explanation.
Meanwhile, when asked about their split, Pedro says that the group decided it in a band's meeting without others' pressure. He also denies any rumor saying the split is led by an internal dispute. He insists that they all just need a break before embarking on solo careers. He confirms it in a statement, "This is a decision the group made together, so that they could continue to evolve (as individuals). It wasn't forced by me or any of the higher-ups, or anything like that."
With their physically fit-to-perfection and uniquely fashionable looks, RBD are often compared to super groups, such as Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys. Their 2006 latest album "Rebels", which is their first English album, debuted at number 40 on the Billboard 200 album chart in its first-week sales of 94,000 copies.
