Mexican-American pop duo Ha*Ash’s fame keeps growing
For the Mexican-American sister duo Ha*Ash, known for the hit “No Pasa Nada” (Nothing Happens),” among others, much is happening these days.
Consisting of Hanna Nicole Pérez Mosa, 33, and Ashley Grace Pérez Mosa, 31, Ha*Ash added to their long string of successes in September when “No Pasa Nada,” the second single from their sixth and most recent album, “30 de Febrero,” was certified gold in Mexico.
“Recognition is always inspiring to continue giving the best of us. But the biggest recognition we have is the applause from our fans at the concerts and seeing in social media how people identify with our music and that our music is a refuge for them,” Ashley Mosa says by phone from Mexico.
Like many acts of their generation, Ha*Ash uses social media to stay connected to their fans. They have more than 10.7 million followers on Facebook, 2.8 million on Instagram, 4.1 million on YouTube and 5.6 million on Twitter. Their videos have earned more than 2.5 billion streams on Vevo, and their songs are played about 3 million times a month on Spotify.
With hits such as “Te Dejo en Libertad,” “Te Quedaste,” “Amor a Medias,” “Lo Aprendí de Ti” and “Perdón, Perdón,” Ha*Ash promises a “very funny concert in Miami,” Mosa says. The concert is part of the second leg of their 100 Años Contigo world tour.
“We are promoting [“30 de Febrero”], in which there are songs of love and indifference, very sarcastic, funny, singles that speak of passion and desire,” Mosa says. “Anyone who is going through a bad time because of a bad love or anyone who simply wants to relax for a while can come to the concert that is going to a very funny one. We love interacting with our audience.”
Ha*Ash’s music combines Latin pop and rock with country rhythms. The duo debuted in 2002 with a self-titled album, and achieved popularity the following year with the single “Estés en Donde Estés.” Their fifth album, “Primera Fila: Hecho Realidad,” sold more than 2.5 million copies internationally.
Known as “the queens of the sold-out,” the sisters have a busy schedule, with another 80 concerts ahead in United States, Europe and South America, Mosa says.
“We invite our fans to contact us and ask us what they want to hear at the Miami concert,” Mosa adds. “And to come, because they’re going to have a lot of fun.” Ha*Ash will perform 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave. Tickets cost $58-$367.50.
