The Mexican trio Reik was established in 2003. In a rather short space of time the band became widely known not only in their home country, but also well beyond its borders. As of 2005 when they released their first same-name album, the Reik bandmates’ popularity helped boost the album sales and it gained platinum status not only in Mexico, but also in the United States. Reik’s music is highly appreciated in Latin America where the trio was nominated for prestigious music awards on a number of occasions. Reik won the 2009 MTV Award as the Best Pop Group and the Latin Grammy Award for the Best Pop Album, Un Día Más.
