massively more popular among norteno music fans. Unlike another norteno legendary group, Los Tigres del Norte, whose music was popular among recent Mexican immigrants, particularly in California, 

Reyna and Ayala easily crossed over into the Tex-Mex market. Though both were from Mexico, they had deep ties to the Rio Grande Valley, and their music became part of the Tex-Mex music heritage.

Earlier this year, Reyna Jr. was working on a tribute album to his father. There was no official word on what would become of that recording project.

His son, Alejandro Reyna said his father had several projects in the works: “Tenía pensado hacerle un homenaje a mi abuelo (Cornelio Reyna), tenía planeado grabar un disco con los Cardenales de Sinaloa, el cual quedó inconcluso,” declaró Alejandro Reyna, 27.Cornelio  Reyna Jr.

Reyna Jr began writing songs while in high school in Mexico. His first hits included  "Señor, señor" and "Descarada."

He left behind his wife, Norma Alicia López. And his other sons César Cornelio, 21; Sebastián Eduardo, 16, and Fernando Romina, 11.

For his songwriting contributions, unique style and family heritage, Reyna Jr. will be remembered as one of the top names central to the progression and advancement of Tex-Mex music.

From El Sol de Cuatla:

"A la edad de 50 años, la mañana de ayer murió Cornelio Reyna Jr, hijo del afamado cantante del mismo nombre, quien estaba próximo a grabar un disco en homenaje precisamente a su padre.

Víctima de un paro respiratorio, Alberto Reyna, su verdadero nombre, dejó de existir a las 3 de la mañana mientras recibía atención médica en un hospital de la Ciudad de México.

Cornelio Reyna Jr siempre trató de seguir los pasos de su padre, logrando grabar varias producciones discográficas, siendo uno de sus éxitos más sonados La Chacha, material que alcanzó la venta de más de 100 mil discos en México.
