In later 2014, the singer signed an exclusive publishing contract with Sony Music Entertainment Argentina and released "Mil Años Luz" as the third single from A Bailar. To celebrate her incorporation to Sony Music, Espósito released a deluxe edition of A Bailar, which contained unpublished material including a new song, a remix, several video clips and a documentary of the tour. The album peaked at No. 3 in Uruguay and at No. 5 in Argentina, where it was certified gold a few days after its release.

Espósito released her second studio album Soy on 20 May 2016, with El País newspaper writing that "she takes one more step with this album, she experiments, shows herself as she is, and that is always valuable".[66] In an interview with Intrusos, the singer referred to the album's title (Soy, English: I Am) saying that "it is called Soy because I am sharing the truth about what I think and feel. It is super personal".[67] It sold more than 20,000 copies in Argentina in just three hours, being certified gold by the Argentine Chamber of Phonograms and Videograms Producers (CAPIF).[68] The album debuted at No. 1 in Argentina, Uruguay and Israel, and at No. 5 and No. 6 in Italy and Spain, respectively.

The film, which was directed by Ariel Winograd, grossed US$1.9 million and has been viewed more than 370,000 times.

In July and November, respectively, Espósito released "Una Na" and "Tu Novia" as the first two singles from her upcoming third studio album.[72] The former one rapidly reached the top of the Argentine National Songs chart.[73] In November, the singer kicked off her second concert tour in support of Soy, titled Lali en Vivo, with two sold-out shows at the Luna Park Arena.[74]

In that period of time Lali was the most popular in the global ranking of different topics in multilingual Wikipedia.[75]

2018–2019: Brava, The Accused and Talento FOX edit

From January to July, the singer continued with her Lali en Vivo tour, which visited Peru, Spain, Italy, Israel and the United States. In February, Espósito was featured on Mau y Ricky and Karol G's remix of "Mi Mala", with Becky G and Leslie Grace, and, in May, she teamed up with CD9 and Ana Mena for the remix of "Prohibido".[76] Preceded by the release of "100 Grados", in April, and "Besarte Mucho", in July, the singer released her third studio album, Brava, in August 2018. One week after, the album received a gold certification by the Argentine Chamber of Phonograms and Videograms Producers for having sold ten thousand copies.[77] Espósito embarked on the Brava Tour immediately after the album release, on 23 August, with two sold-out shows at the Luna Park Arena.[78] The album was succeeded by the release of the singles "Sin Querer Queriendo" with Mau y Ricky, and "Caliente", with Brazilian drag queen Pabllo Vittar. The singles peaked at number 14 and 51 on the Billboard Argentina Hot 100, respectively.

Outside of recording music, Espósito made her debut as a judge on Fox Latin America's original television talent show Talento FOX.[79][80] In September, Espósito starred in the film The Accused, as Dolores Dreier, a girl accused of killing her best friend.[72] The film was directed by Gonzalo Tobal and it made its premiere in the main competition of the 75th Venice International Film Festival.[81]

Lali started off 2019 performing in Times Square, New York City, for Univision's Countdown Feliz 2019.[82] Early that year, the music video for "Lindo Pero Bruto", her collaboration with Thalía, was released.[83] The singer received notable nominations for the Premio Lo Nuestro and the Billboard Latin Music Awards.[84][85] During the first months of the year, Lali continued touring with Brava, which was certified four times platinum in Argentina.[86] For the 21st Annual Gardel Awards, Lali won three awards, the most of the night, in the categories for Best Female Pop Album and Best Cover Design for Brava, and Song of the Year for "Sin Querer Queriendo".[87]

In the last months of 2019, Lali took her Brava Tour to Europe, the United States and the Rock in Rio music festival in Brazil,[88] where she also received a gold certification for "Caliente."[89] It was in these months that Lali officially kicked off her fourth music era: in October, she released her fourth studio album's lead single, "Laligera", which peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Argentina Hot 100;[90] in November, she released "Como Así", which features boy band CNCO, with whom she co-hosted the 2019 Premios Juventud ceremony back in July.[91][92]

2020–2021: Libra and Sky Rojo edit

The year 2020 saw the release of Lali's fourth studio album titled Libra, which reached the number one position in Argentina.[93] The album was preceded by the release of three more singles, namely "Lo Que Tengo Yo", "Fascinada" and "Ladrón" with Argentine trap singer Cazzu. At the 23rd Annual Gardel Awards, Libra earned a nomination for Best Pop Album, a recognition of its musical excellence. Although the album didn't clinch the award, Lali added another accolade to her name by securing the Song of the Year award for "Ladrón". This marked her second victory in this category, the first being in 2019. 2020 was also marked by collaborations as Lali was featured in Los Ángeles Azules's "Las Maravillas de La Vida", Fito Páez's "Gente en la Calle" and the Dvicio-duet "Soy de Volar". Lali was also part of the charity single "Color Esperanza 2020" alongside Diego Torres, Thalía, Camilo, Carlos Vives, Manuel Turizo, Rauw Alejandro, Ivete Sangalo and others. The song was released as a joint effort by Sony Music Latin and Global Citizen to benefit the Pan American Health Organization's (PAHO) response to the COVID-19 pandemic.[94]

In 2020, the filming of the Netflix series Sky Rojo became a significant chapter for Lali, requiring her to relocate indefinitely to Spain. Commencing in November 2019 in Madrid, the originally planned four-month shooting schedule was disrupted due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, halting production.[95] This unforeseen circumstance not only interrupted the series' filming but also impacted the release of Lali's album, Libra. Amidst the uncertainties, Lali managed to return to Argentina before the nationwide lockdown and underwent quarantine in her Buenos Aires residence.[96] In November, she disclosed testing positive for COVID-19, a challenge faced by many members of the Sky Rojo team between June and November.[97] Despite the setbacks, Sky Rojo premiered in March 2021, showcasing Lali in the role of Wendy, one of three prostitutes seeking freedom while evading their pimp and his henchmen.[98] The series garnered an enthusiastic response from both audiences and critics alike.[99][100] Sheena Scott of Forbes acknowledged Lali's impact, noting that the series topped Netflix's charts as the number one TV show in Argentina during its launch weekend.[101] Described by The New York Times as "sheer excess" for its "simultaneously minimal and over-the-top" plot, Sky Rojo not only secured widespread acclaim but also earned a renewal for two additional seasons.[102] The culmination of this success came with the third installment in January 2023.

Between June and September 2021, Lali took on the role of coach for the third season of La Voz Argentina, the localized rendition of The Voice, where she ended up in third position. The following year, Lali came back as a coach for the fourth season of the competition and ended up as the runner-up.

2022–2024: Lali and El Fin del Amor edit

After a hiatus of over two years from the music scene, Lali made a return in early 2022 with the trilogy of singles "Disciplina" "Diva" and "Como Tú". These releases served as a preview to her upcoming fifth studio album, marking a significant shift from her previous urban sound as she embraced a return to pop music.[103] Concurrently, Lali announced her Disciplina Tour, which kicked off in June 2023 and promptly became a record-breaking sensation selling out arenas and stadiums across Latin America, Europe, and Asia.[104] In the same month, Lali dropped "N5" a chart-topping single that soared to number nine on the Billboard Argentina Hot 100, her highest entry on the chart. The track achieved gold certification in the country, symbolizing its widespread acclaim and success. Notably, "N5" also marked a pivotal moment in Lali's career, as it became the first song where she openly embraced her bisexuality, garnering admiration for her authenticity and openness.[105][106] The year 2022 continued to be a prolific one for Lali, witnessing the releases of "2 Son 3" and "Motiveishon", the latter coinciding with the Buenos Aires Pride, showcasing her commitment to inclusivity and celebration of diverse identities through her music.[107]

In March 2023, Lali reached new heights as she brought her Disciplina Tour to the iconic José Amalfitani Stadium in Buenos Aires, captivating a sold-out audience of over 50,000 and etching her name in history as the first Argentine woman to achieve a stadium sell-out at this grand scale.[108][109] A mere month later, the singer unveiled her highly anticipated fifth studio album, Lali. This marked a triumphant return to her pop music roots, a departure from the Latin sounds of reggaeton and trap explored in her previous records Brava (2018) and Libra (2020).[110] The record was hailed as "an ode to pop music" where the artist revisited her diverse musical influences, creating a nostalgic yet contemporary piece.[111] Described as her "most pop album", Lali blended sounds and elements reminiscent of the late nineties and early two-thousands pop era, drawing inspiration from icons like Britney Spears, NSYNC, and Jennifer Lopez.[112][113][114] Music critics lauded the album for its production, lyrical content, concept, and clever references to pop culture.[111][115] Commercially, the album made an impressive debut at number one in Argentina within a mere three tracking days, maintaining its dominance for six weeks. Mirroring its success, Lali also claimed the top spot in Uruguay. Fueled by the infectious melodies of the top 20 single "Obsesión" and the witty track "Quiénes Son?" the album solidified Lali's status as the "Queen of Argentine Pop".[115][114] To complement the album's success, the Lali Tour embarked on a global journey, captivating audiences across France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Israel, Mexico, and Argentina.

Beyond her musical endeavors, Lali showcased her versatility in the entertainment industry by taking on the lead role and producing the Prime Video series El Fin del Amor in 2022. Based on the 2019 bestselling essay El fin del amor, querer y coger by Tamara Tenenbaum, the series delves into the complex themes of love and desire. In this compelling narrative, Lali portrays the character based on Tenenbaum herself, an Orthodox Jewish woman embarking on a transformative journey. The storyline unfolds as she steps away from her traditional life, venturing into a world of new experiences that starkly contrast with her previous ideals rooted in bonding and religion.[116] At the 2023 Silver Condor Series Awards, Lali won the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series award for her role as Tenenbaum.[117] Originally commissioned with a straight-to-series order of 10 episodes, El Fin del Amor garnered acclaim for its thought-provoking exploration of societal norms and personal growth.[118][119] The series resonated so profoundly with audiences that it earned a well-deserved renewal for a second season, scheduled to premiere in 2024.[120]

Philanthropy edit

In May 2010, Espósito and her Teen Angels bandmates participated in an action organized by the Biodiversity Foundation on the occasion of the World Biodiversity Day and raised awareness of the importance of preserving biodiversity.[127]

Espósito has been named "Godmother" of Dono x Vos foundation, a nongovernmental organization dedicated to raising awareness about organ donation. In 2017, the singer joined forces with Red Solidaria and River Plate Football Club to launch a solidarity campaign named "Amor Es Presente". The campaign received donated toys that were later gifted to more than twelve-thousand children as part of Christmas festivities.

Social activism edit

Espósito is part of a feminist group of Argentine actresses and singers, such as Jimena Barón, Griselda Siciliani, Carla Peterson, Florencia Peña and Florencia de la V, among others. Espósito has declared herself in favor of the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy Bill in Argentina, where abortion was still illegal at the moment. The bill proposed that an abortion may be performed during the first 14 weeks of pregnancy, with no requirements other than the woman's desire. The bill was approved in 2020.

Political impact edit

In the latter part of the 2010s, Lali became an advocate in causes related to social, women's, and LGBT rights. Utilizing her considerable success in both her career and public profile, she actively mobilized political engagement, notably contributing to campaigns such as the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy Bill and the Transgender Employment Quota Bill in Argentina.[128][129] As the 2020s unfolded, Lali wielded substantial political influence, a trend that gained momentum following the 2023 Argentine primary elections.

In these elections, Javier Milei of the far-right Argentine Libertarian Party secured the highest vote share at 29.86%, followed by Sergio Massa (21.43%) from the center-left Renewal Front and Patricia Bullrich (16.81%) from the right-wing Republican Proposal.[130] Milei's political stance leaned towards social conservatism, opposing abortion, euthanasia, and mandatory vaccination.[131][132][133] He expressed support for legalizing organ trade and unrestricted firearm ownership.[134][135] His 2023 political agenda included proposals to eliminate the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy Law,[136] ban comprehensive sex education from schools,[137] restrict free education and universal healthcare,[133] withhold funding for gender-affirming care,[138] and dissolve the Ministry of Women, Genders, and Diversity, among other measures.[139] His proposals alligned to those by Donald Trump in the United States and Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.[140]

Following Milei's victory in August 2023, Lali, disillusioned by the outcome, tweeted, "Qué peligroso. Qué triste" (English: "How dangerous. How sad").[141] This tweet garnered strong support from Milei's opponents but also triggered intense hatred and harassment from his supporters, party, and the candidate himself. As of February 2024, the tweet gathered over 48 million impressions. Lali's words evolved into a rallying cry for both sides, symbolizing either support or protest against Milei.[142] Following the criticism received by Milei's fanatics, Lali added:

"I'm not bothered at all by being insulted for considering it dangerous and sad that there are people who vote for an anti-rights stance. The violence with which they insult and the arguments reflect exactly what they are voting for. We've become accustomed to thinking that if someone has an opinion, it's because they're on "the other side," but the only side I'll 'always' be on (within the current political and economic decadent context we're in) is the one that doesn't disregard the rights we've gained. That is what I think as a responsible young Argentine voter who doesn't only think about themselves. I could choose not to express any opinion, of course, it's the most 'comfortable' option, but I'm not like that, so... yes! For me, it's truly sad and dangerous to vote for such an anti-rights stance."[143]

In light of Lali's words, Lucía Peker of Infobae noted: "The concern expressed by Lali Espósito on social media about the 'danger' of the election results reflects the fear of many women regarding the advance of an electoral force that denies gender violence, wage inequality, and digital violence affecting young women when explicit sexual images are shared."[144]

Despite his initial defeat against Massa in the first round of the 2023 Argentine general election, Milei emerged victorious in the runoff, securing the presidency of Argentina.[145] Since Lali expressed her stance back in August, she has faced relentless political persecution. Notably, she has become a target of misinformation propagated by the media aligning with Milei's and Mauricio Macri's positions.[142] False information and distorted figures regarding her participation and compensation for state-organized free shows have been disseminated.[146] While numerous artists, some earning even larger sums, have been engaged by the state for similar performances but have not voiced an opinion, they remain untouched by persecution from the president and his supporters.[147] The spread of these fake news stories has subjected Lali to continuous online and in-person harassment from Libertarian fanatics, turning her into a consistent topic of debate in the media and even resulting in doxxing. This has been interpreted as a tactic employed by the president and his party to convey the message that artists who voice dissent about government policies will face persecution and harassment—a move perceived by many as both fascist and authoritarian.[148]

After dismissing such an "absolute delusion" and explaining that the compensation is not only for her but for the more than 200 people working on her shows, Lali metaphorically explained that the hostility towards her was like "foam" created by the president and his media to cover up something bigger. Many connected this to the treatment of the authoritarian and unconstitutional Omnibus Law imposed by Milei.[149]

Political persecution persisted for months, involving ongoing interactions and social media posts by the president directed at Lali. In February 2024, the singer took the stage at the iconic Cosquín Rock festival. During "Quiénes Son?", a song characterized as a sarcastic commentary on online hate culture, she altered the lyrics of one verse to "Que si vivo del Estado" (English: "That I live off the State") in direct response to the actions of Milei and the media.[150] Days later, the president expressed his opinion once again in a quite violent interview with La Nación:

"When Córdoba hosts Cosquín Rock, which is a private event, it receives one billion pesos in subsidies. All the artists who were there, for example, Lali 'Depósito,' were paid by the State. But Lali 'Depósito' received payments from various governments. In one of the concerts, she received 350 thousand dollars. So, are you willing to finance those expenses against the VAT that takes away food from poor children in Chaco? To finance that culture, you'll burden it on two-thirds of the children are in poverty conditions. So, what are the priorities [of the governors]? Giving food to the people or filling the pockets of Lali 'Depósito' and having her criticize me at a festival?"

He further explained that he selected "Depósito" (English: deposit) to refer to the singer because, according to him, "she lives off tax payers at the expense of children's hunger."[142]

The following day, numerous figures from Argentina's music, television, and film industries, as well as politicians and other notable public figures expressed their support for Lali and the right to free expression. The list included María Becerra, Nicki Nicole, Duki, Ricardo Mollo and Catriel Ciavarella of Divididos, Marilina Bertoldi, Andrés Ciro Martínez of Ciro y los Persas, Andrés Calamaro, Dante Spinetta, Juliana Gattas of Miranda!, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Moria Casán, Carla Peterson, Pablo Echarri, Ofelia Fernández, and Guillermo Moreno among many others.[147][151]

That same day, Lali posted an open letter directed at Milei in which she shared her work history since the age of 10, highlighting her success in television and her dedication to music for over a decade. She also expressed pride in her achievements, including buying a house for her parents and performing in sold-out stadiums. While she stated her respect for Milei's stance on culture, she criticized the demonization of the industry and the unfair perception in his speech. Additionally, she asked the president to choose a path that benefited all citizens and advocates for the freedom to think differently. Finally, she inviteed him to attend any of her concerts to demonstrate her professionalism on stage.[152][153][154]

The case was compared by many to Trump's and Bolsonaro's political persecution of Taylor Swift in the United States and of Pabllo Vittar and Anitta in Brazil, resepectively.[155] It prompted Axel Kicillof, governor of the Buenos Aires Province, to assert the importance of investing in culture and to create policies that foster cultural events and protect artists, which was called "the Lali effect".[156]

Public image edit

In March 2014, the 23-year-old Espósito was ranked third sexiest Argentine woman in a survey reported by Radio Continental.[157] That same year, she was ranked the 27th-most influential Spanish-speaking celebrity on Twitter.[158]

Personal life edit

Espósito's nickname and stage name, Lali, was originated by her eldest brother who mispronounced the short form of her name "Mari" as "Lali".[159] She attended primary school and high school at the Colegio San Vicente De Paul in Parque Patricios.[5]

Relationships edit

From 2006 to 2010, Espósito was in an on-again, off-again relationship with her Chiquititas and Casi Ángeles co-star Peter Lanzani,[160] whom she called her "first love".[159] The couple is still a fan favourite in Argentina and they remained good friends after their breakup.[161]

In 2010, Espósito began dating singer and actor Benjamín Amadeo after they met in Casi Ángeles.[159] Espósito and Amadeo announced their breakup in 2015,[162] but they and their families remained close friends,[163][164] making several public appearances together.[165]

From late 2015 to early 2016, Espósito was in a highly publicized relationship with her Esperanza Mía co-star Mariano Martinez.[166] In 2017 Espósito began dating sound engineer Santiago Mocorrea;[167] they broke up in 2020.[168] Since 2024, she has been in a relationship with media personality Pedro Rosemblat.[169][170]
