Gabriel Hidalgo (guitar and backing vocals) left the group after they had released three albums. He bought a house in Los Angeles for his family.

Pedro Tovar's 2023 hit song, Ella Baila Sola, is a romantic sierreño tune about two friends talking about a beautiful girl they spotted dancing at a social gathering. The song is not based on Pedro's experience but his imagination and creativity.

The singer explained his band ended up featuring Peso Pulma in the song. Pedro Tovar said:

When I wrote it, I gave Peso Pulma a call. He was at an airport; I sang it to him over the phone, and he liked it a lot. A month later, we recorded it...two days later, it went viral on TikTok, and we just had to drop it.

Shortly after the song was released on music streaming platforms, Ella Baila Sola reached No. 1 on Spotify and Apple Music. Additionally, its video got over 92 million views on YouTube.

Social media users started questioning online why Eslabón Armado didn’t perform the song with Peso Pulma on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on 28 April 2023. The band told El Gordo and La Flaca:

We didn't get the invitation. We didn't hear from anyone there from the Jimmy Fallon show. But it's all good. We didn't get upset.

Towards the end of the interview, Eslabón’s Brian Tovar said:

When it’s something like Jimmy Fallon or things like that, well, it seems to me that you have to have some respect where you have to invite both groups, but I don’t know what happened.
