Pantoja began performing precociously at the age of seven in the flamenco ensemble of her cousin Chiquetete. At 17 she met her "maestro" Juan Solano Pedrero, who wrote her first hits along with writer and poet Rafael de León. Pantoja cultivated copla, a genre in decline at the moment that she popularised again. Some of her early hits were "El Pájaro Verde", "Garlochí" or "El Señorito". In 1983 she released her first pop album, Cambiar por ti, which included the same-title song, "En la Niebla", or "Nada". From that moment, Pantoja alternated ballads and romantic songs with copla.

On 30 April 1983 she married bullfighter Francisco Rivera Pérez "Paquirri"; the wedding was widely covered by the Spanish media as they were both popular and successful and they embodied a Romantic Spain stereotype of the bullfighter and the "tonadillera". On 26 September 1984 he died in the bullring; Pantoja became known as "Spain's widow" in the media and a regular cover on gossip magazines. After a prolonged hiatus, she released the album Marinero de Luces, composed by José Luis Perales, that sold one million copies in Spain.

Pantoja has another daughter, named like herself María Isabel Pantoja Martín (born 8 November 1995 in Lima, Peru), whom she adopted in 1996, and who is better known as Isa Pantoja or "Chabelita". Both her children are television personalities who have participated in reality shows.

Pantoja was arrested in April 2013 by the Spanish police. She was accused of allegedly being an accomplice of her ex-boyfriend Julián Muñoz, who was accused of money laundering, bribery among other criminal activities while he was mayor of Marbella. She was found guilty and sentenced to a 24-month prison term. She later paid approximately four million euros and made a plea to avoid having to go to prison.

On November 3, 2014 the jury in Málaga decided to deny the plea of suspension of imprisonment, and ordered the immediate entry of Pantoja in the prison complex within 3 days after the verdict. The trial and Pantoja's entry in prison were widely covered by Spanish media. She was released from jail on 10 February 2016.
