Aracely continued its success with the latest telenovela of her first stint as television actress: Las vías del amor (2002), where she also sang the theme song. Besides music and television, Aracely entered the theater with productions such as Muchachos de Nueva York, Coqueluche, and Hermanos de Sangre.

In 2013, Aracely returned to telenovelas with La Patrona, produced by Telemundo and Argos, where she shares credits with Christian Bach and Jorge Luis Pila. In addition she sang two songs for the telenovela. Also, after the success obtained in La Patrona, Telemundo chose her as the lead in a melodrama based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo, Les Miserables, which was produced in 2014.[3][4]

Arambula currently working on an upcoming studio album she plans to release in 2014. "We are working on the album and you will soon know the music, meanwhile, sounds in "La Patrona" two songs that I sing. Would be an unpublished and grupero, I like that style because I am north", said Arambula.[7]
