“I was depressed, without a job and without a contract, but Danna Paola saved me with this song”

“I went through a very strong depression,” confesses Alan Navarro, who had known the fury of fame and had lived 10 years of popularity thanks to the boy band CD9, with which he had set records not only for music sales, but also for the longest autograph signing in the history of Mexico.

From one day to the next, CD9 disappeared. There was no official announcement but they simply stopped making records and no longer toured.

“My depression started when the band ended without a goodbye or anything. I felt a kind of suffocation” she says.

The blow was greater when Navarro realized that one of his CD9 companions was released as a soloist, Jos Canela, while the rest of the members were frozen by the record company.

“I talked to Alonso (another member of CD9) and asked him ‘what are we going to do, why is he releasing a new song and we can’t do anything?’ It was a stab in the back, I felt betrayed.”

In mid-2020, while the pandemic deepened his problems, Alan Navarro received a call from Danna Paola.

“She invites me to appear in one of her videos, the one for the song ”Don’t dance alone”, where I play the role of her toxic boyfriend. When the video comes out, people start asking me if I was going to be an actor anymore, and I also get messages from many fans asking me when I’m going to release new music.”

Navarro says that this experience made him realize that it was time to get up emotionally.

“Literally, I got out of depression thanks to Danna Paola. I was without a job, unable to make music, without a label and without a contract, but that day I said: ‘I have to talk to the management of CD9, to see what happens, ask if it would be okay to start from scratch’.

That’s how it went. Alan Navarro came out of his depression, began to write music and now releases a new album, “Heartbreaker”, whose first single speaks precisely of the emotional process he experienced.

“The lyrics are about the emptiness in which we sometimes feel and in which you are your own enemy and it is up to you to get out of that depression.”
