IMC Records proudly announces the signing of "Los del Rio" to an unprecedented deal between Record Label and Recording Artists. "IMC, short for International Music Content, delivers unparalleled original music content to the Music Industry and music lovers alike," says Darius Jordi Lassus, International Artist Manager and CEO of the company, "to that end, we like to think of ourselves as an artist-empowering music company introducing a new music business model that shifts the power back to the artists and the focus back onto the music itself."

"This exclusive partnership with 'Los del Rio' is precisely the type of opportunities and branding that we are looking for at the company," says producer/songwriter Domingo Zapata, Chairman of the company, "and we are very happy to have Antonio and Rafael on board."

"Fifteen years ago, Los del Rio released 'Macarena' which soon became the world's best selling single of all time," says Hollywood powerhouse entertainment attorney Peter Lopez, who brokered and negotiated the terms of this landmark agreement. The song became the second longest running #1 and best selling debut single of all time in the U.S. The single spent 14 weeks at the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, one of the longest runs atop the Hot 100 chart history. At the time, Macarena also broke records by remaining in the Hot 100 chart for 60 weeks.

Currently, Los del Rio are in the studio with multiple Grammy Award winner Jon Secada producing the new version of Macarena. A nationwide search for the Next Macarena Girl is planned as part of a TV Special tentatively entitled "En Busca de Macarena" or "Searching for Macarena" in English. "I have had the privilege of writing hits for Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and myself among others," says Jon Secada, "and now I have the privilege of writing and producing for Spanish icons Los del Rio. This is my first project producing under my company 'Secada Productions,' and it feels great to know that I am working on a hit."

"Last time, a female vocalist helped us make Macarena an international success, but we were unable to showcase her," says Antonio Romero (composer of Macarena and member of LDR), "this time around we want it to be about the girl, and we know that somewhere in America a girl's dream will come true and she will become huge, like the Macarena." The contest winner will record the song with Los del Rio in English & Spanish, and join them on tour, after which IMC Records will introduce her as a solo artist. "We are both really excited to have found a new home in IMC Records," Rafael Ruiz (member of LDR) adds, "the possibilities are endless thanks to the way in which our vision and passion is being carried out by Domingo Zapata, Peter Lopez and Jordi Lassus."

"Los del Rio have played at the Super Bowl half-time show, done every major television show and even had president Bill Clinton dance the Macarena. Their new album celebrates 15 years of Macarena & 40 years of Los del Rio and features some really cool collaborations, but it is all a big surprise so stay tuned," adds Darius Jordi Lassus. "Los del Rio have sold millions and received several accolades, including a World Music Award, we are now focusing on the Grammy." Incidentally, Antonio & Rafael are already working on a song titled "A Por El Grammy."
