Tragically, Ariel Camacho’s life was cut short on February 25, 2015, at the age of 22. He died in a car accident in Angostura, Sinaloa, while returning from a performance at the Carnaval de Mocorito music festival.

The accident, which occurred around 2 AM, also resulted in the death of two others, with one person injured. It was reported that Camacho was driving at a high speed, though it’s unclear if alcohol was a factor.

Following his death, Camacho’s band renamed themselves “Los Plebes Del Rancho de Ariel Camacho” in his honor. They continue to release albums, and each year on February 25th, his band, family, fans, and fellow artists gather at his grave to remember him. Camacho is affectionately remembered by many as “El Rey del Requinto,” “El Mentado,” “Rey de Corazones,” and “La Tuyia.”

His first album, “El Karma,” reached number one on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart after his death, and his legacy continues to inspire artists in the corridos tumbados scene. His net worth at the time of his death was estimated to be around $2 million, considering his music royalties and assets.
