Mexican superstars Christian Nodal and Peso Pluma set social media ablaze over the weekend when Nodal posted a photo of the two artists together in a recording studio. The picture, shared on Instagram on Saturday, October 22, sparked immediate speculation that the regional Mexican music icons are collaborating on new music.
Nodal, one of the genre’s early innovators, and Pluma, a leader of the massively popular corridos tumbados movement, hinted they are cooking up a song but provided no other details. Their musical worlds colliding in the studio ignited excitement among fans eager for a taste of what the pair could be brewing.
Nodal Shares Cryptic Studio Snap
On Saturday afternoon, Nodal shared a photo of himself and Pluma on his Instagram story. It shows the singers smiling, their arms around each other inside a studio at Prajin Music Group, Pluma’s label.
Pluma is seen wearing his signature sporty style, while Nodal displays his famous tattooed face. The music playing in the background sounds like Pluma’s hit “Lady Gaga.”
Nodal offered no caption, simply adding Mexican and camera emojis. But the imagery spoke volumes, immediately sparking speculation that two of regional Mexican music’s biggest stars are joining forces.
Pluma Fuels Intrigue
Pluma further fanned the flames by re-sharing Nodal’s post on his own Instagram story. The elusive singer, who eschews interviews, added nothing but a hug emoji and a Mexican flag.
But combined with Nodal’s original teaser, it was enough to send fans into a frenzy, guessing what the pair could be collaborating on.
Nodal Long A Pluma Fan
This isn’t the first time Nodal has hinted at working with Pluma. He’s made no secret of his admiration for the young star who catapulted corridos tumbados into the mainstream.
During an interview in Colombia earlier this year, Nodal praised Pluma as “number one in the world” and representing regional Mexican music globally.
“I’m happy because he’s doing things that have never been done before,” Nodal said then.
While Pluma has avoided commenting specifically on Nodal, his re-post of the photo suggests an openness to joining forces.

His latest single, “Qlona,” currently sits in the platform’s Top 20 as Pluma crisscrosses the U.S. on a sold-out tour.
The 22-year-old singer has collaborated with artists like Bizarrap and Grupo Frontera. His genre-bending songs incorporate elements of reggaeton and pop, transcending traditional Mexican music boundaries.
Nodal’s Crossover Appeal
Christian Nodal has long been a leader in pushing regional Mexican music into uncharted territory. With his edgy style and progressive sound, the 23-year-old shook up the genre’s conventions.
Nodal came to fame in 2016 with his breakout hit “Adios Amor” and has since collaborated with urban acts like Gera MX and Nanpa Basico.
He’s currently wrapping up a U.S. leg of his Forajido Tour and recently released the single “Mexico en mi Voz,” showing his continued pursuit of innovation.
Two Worlds Collide
As young trailblazers with parallel meteoric rises, Nodal and Pluma each have massive fanbases spanning generations.
A team-up between regional Mexican music’s elder statesman and its new guard has the potential to make major waves.
The photo indicates their musical worlds may be on the verge of colliding, though no release date or other details are known.
For now, fans are left to speculate what these two hitmakers are cooking up. But one thing seems clear – Nodal and Pluma are poised to drop something big.
