Flashback Friday: Gerardo – Rico Suave

This song and video seems like a parody now but back in the early 90s Gerardo had a major hit. Rico Suave, released in 1990, reached number 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1991.

Gerardo, whose last name is Mejí, is also ranked number 9 on VH1’s 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders.

Do you remember Gerardo and his hit song Rico Suave?

  1. I’ll bet he’s somewhere frying fish right now…..and I’ll bet those guys from Color Me Badd are washing dishes and taking the trash out.

  2. Yep, he was working A&R at a label the last I heard. Back in the day, We Got Served by him and his crew at Club Metro in Riverside. (We ended up getting third.)
