Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Chantell'


Chantelle was a popular merengue musical group from Puerto Rico, which performed from the late 1980s to the early 1990s. The group's name comes from the popular French feminine given name (translated to "Chantal" in Spanish and English).

Formed in 1988, Chantelle was an all female music group, which is somewhat of a rarity for tropical music bands. One of their few predecessors in that respect was "Las Chicas Del Can", a Merengue music group from Dominican Republic, that performed during the middle 1980s.

In 1989, Chantelle became known on the Puerto Rican and Latin American airwaves with their biggest hit, "Aunque tu no Quieras" ("Even if you Don't Want to"). That song was about a girl telling her boyfriend that they had to separate, despite their feelings. This song gave Chantelle television and radio coverage, and the three girls in the group (Olga Tañón, Sandra Torres and Daly Fontanez) became famous women, although Olga Tañón became the most famous of the three.
