Solo Quédate En Silencio

"Sólo Quédate En Silencio" (English: "Just Stay in Silence'") is the second single released from RBD's debut album Rebelde (2004). The second single was first meant to be "Un Poco De Tu Amor", but due to the heavy rotation of "Sólo Quédate En Silencio", it was chosen as the second single.

The Brazilian version of the song peaked at number 2 in Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks.[1]

The song has a version in Portuguese too, called "Fique Em Silêncio" (Get In Silence) and was a single on Brazil. This makes the song the only from RBD, along with "Sálvame", "Tenerte Y Quererte", "Nuestro Amor" and "Dame" to have three versions: in Spanish, English and Portuguese.
