The singers continued their feud and stopped talking to each other, and the composer of most of their songs, Rolf Soja, decided to stop working with them. In 1981, Baccara released his last album with RCA, “Bad Boys”; Coming at a time when the popularity of disco music was starting to wane, it was not a great success. RCA has not renewed Baccara’s recording contract and the two singers have formalized their separation.

María Eugenia Martínez Mendiola was born on April 4, 1952 in Madrid. Her mother, Lola Mendiola, was a housewife; his father, Emilio Martínez, was a police officer at Madrid airport.

Ms Mendiola studied at an Italian school in Madrid and trained as a ballet dancer at the national school before joining the dance troupe of the Spanish public channel.

Even though both singers were Spanish, Baccara represented Luxembourg in the 1978 Eurovision Song Contest, with a song about a holiday romance titled “Parlez-Vous Français?” (Ms. Mendiola spoke five languages, including French.) The Luxembourg candidate finished seventh in the competition.

After the separation of Baccara, the two singers pursue separate careers. In 1981, Ms. Mendiola formed another duo, New Baccara, with another former ballet dancer, Marisa Pérez. Although they never lived up to the fame of the original Baccarat, one of their songs, “Call Me Up”, was a hit in Spain in 1987 and performed well in Germany as well.

Ms Pérez ended her career in 2008 due to illness and a niece, Laura Mendiola, replaced her as Ms Mendiola’s partner. In 2010, Ms. Mendiola formed a final partnership – Baccara with María Mendiola – with another singer, Cristina Sevilla, who had previously collaborated for six years with Ms. Mateos. Their most recent single, “Gimme Your Love”, was released in 2018.
