The band was nominated twice at the 2004 and 2007 Billboard Music Awards.
Founded by Oscar Ivan Treviño and Dimas Lopez, who live in Roma, Texas, the band began as a duo in its early days. The two musicians decided to pursue music full time and started to recruit more members. By 1996, the band had six members and was officially named Duelo.
During the first five years of their career, the band continued to perform in clubs and bars while writing music. They slowly gained a loyal following through their relentless performances. By 2002, Duelo released their debut album El Amor No Acaba, which was well-received by fans in Monterrey and Nuevo León. The sales for the record reached over 100 thousand copies, earning them a gold certification in Mexico.
