BackgroundEdit

"Día de Suerte" was written by Mexican singer-songwriter Alejandra Guzmán and José Luis Ortega, produced by Armando Avila, and performed by Guzmán. The song is featured as the main theme for the Mexican telenovela Una Familia con Suerte, produced by Juan Osorio and starred by Arath de la Torre, Mayrín Villanueva and Luz Elena González.[1] The telenovela began its broadcasting on February 14, 2011 and featured Guzmán in a supporting role named Viridiana, in honor of her late sister Viridiana Alatriste.[1] The song was released during the accusations made to the singer of having participated in a narcofiesta circa 2006, to which the singer responded: "I do not care about that [the accusations]."[2]

Recording and releaseEdit

Guzmán found inspiration for the song at the middle of one night and immediately called Juan Osorio with the news. "It was a song I felt, I gave the best of me, but you never know if the audience would like it." Guzmán said.[3] The song was co-written by José Luis Ortega and produced under the guidance of Armando Avila. During the recording of the live album 20 Años de Éxitos En Vivo con Moderatto, Guzmán performed the song for the first time along the band Moderatto who joined her on stage.[4] On the release of 20 Años de Éxitos the studio version of "Día de Suerte" is included as a bonus track.[5]

AccoladesEdit

The track won for Rock Song of the Year at the Premio Lo Nuestro 2012, while the live version, featuring Moderatto, was nominated for Collaboration of the Year.[6] "Día de Suerte" also was nominated for Song of the Year and won for Best Song for Telenovela, Series or Movies at the Mexican Premios Oye!.[7][8]

Chart performanceEdit

"Día de Suerte" reached the top of the Mexican Airplay charts, and peaked at number nine in the Billboard Latin Songs and at number two in the Latin Pop Songs charts, becoming Guzmán's sixth top ten single in the latter chart.[9][10] On the week of September 24, 2011, Guzmán had two top ten singles in the Latin Pop Songs chart simultaneously, at number nine "Tan Sólo Tú" (a featured performance with Franco De Vita) and "Día de Suerte" climbing to number two, blocked at the top by "Rain Over Me" by Pitbull and Marc Anthony.[11]
