Julieta Venegas Teams Up With Jack Daniel’s Studio No. 7 Latino

Californian-born Mexican pop rock singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas is an award-winning artist about to release her 5th studio album in March.

Venegas is known for her catchy love (or anti-love) songs “Canciones de Amor,” “Limón y Sal” and “Eres Para Mi,” not to mention 4 Latin and 1 Amercian GRAMMY awards. Another notable distinction, her song “Canciones de Amor” was featured in the movie The Heartbreak Kid (during Eddie and Lila’s long drive to their honeymoon destination). This mainstream achievement proves Venegas is an artist who can break boundaries.
