Who was in Menudo?

Menudo was founded in 1977 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and has been regarded as the “Most Iconic Latino Pop Music Band.”

The Latino pop band was formed by music producer and songwriter Edgardo Díaz.

Its original members included Fernando Sallaberry, Nefty Sallaberry, Ricky Meléndez, Carlos Meléndez, and Óscar Meléndez.

Per Variety, since Díaz “infamously cycled out Menudo members once they hit puberty,” over 30 boys were in the band in a span of 20 years.

In addition to Adrián and Robert, other members have also included singers like Roy Rosselló and Ray Reyes.

Billboard reported that Menudo announced new members in March 2023, which include Nicolas Calero, Gabriel Rossell, Andres Emilio, Alejandro Querales, and Ezra Gilmore.
