This week, Lali Espósito will move from Argentina to the world stage in the Netflix series Sky Rojo. The accomplished actress is also an Argentinian pop star with a number of successes to her name.
Sky Rojo was created by the same people behind Money heist.
Sky Rojo premiered on March 19. Lali, who bears her first name professionally, co-stars with Spanish actress Verónica Sánchez and Cuban actress Yany Prado. The action-packed show was created by Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato, the creators of the hit Netflix series La Casa de Papel (or Money heist). The three women play prostitutes who run away from their pimp. Spanish actor and Sense8 Star Miguel Ángel Silvestre plays one of the pimp’s henchmen.
Lali is a very successful Argentinian pop star.
For those who know Lali in Argentina, Sky Rojo will also be his most intense role to date. The 29-year-old rose to prominence in her country thanks to teenage telenovelas. She found her big break as a star of Casi Ángeles, who created the pop group Teen Angels. Lali then went solo in 2014 with her first album, Soy. Lali has collaborated with some of the biggest names in Latin music over the years, including Mau y Ricky, Thalía, Fito Páez and CNCO.
After having watched Sky Rojo, Latido Music has selected some of our favorite Lali hits for your playlists.
