Musica Alma Sexo :Ricky’s back with a bang

Remember Ricky Martin ? The Latin Pop hunk of the 2000’s.

His tracks were huge hits back in 2000’s.  The guy was a craze back then. His crossover tunes from Spanish to English with such scintillating Latin rhythms were an instant hit with people. They used to play his tracks as a filler before our school events when I was a kid. Not to mention I learned my Un, Dos, Tres from him 🙂

The Cup of Life – FIFA 98’s anthem, Livin’ la Vida Loca and Maria – He is still remembered for these tracks. But the sparkle started soon fading away. His other albums didn’t make an impact as large as his debut tracks.

They guy who made people ’Livin’ la Vida loca’  is back making us all want ‘Mas Mas Mas a la Vida’ .  He had recently released his Predominantly Spanish album with just two English tracks – Musica Alma Sexo (Music Soul Sex) : MAS a few weeks back.

The Album completely rocks. Though the lead feel-good single Spanish & English  ”Lo Mejor De Mi Vidas Eres Tu” (The Best thing about me is you) sounds kinda 80’s out-of-date and too cheesy, not exactly the she-banging (err.. k..k.. now he-banging 😛 ) we would all expect.  But is kinda enjoyable after few times. Ricky’s is all now for Equality, feeling happy, blah-blah – after he came out as a Gay last year.

The next single in English is Shine, which is also Good but not too Good :-/. Interestingly, the Songs seems to speak about love with a girl 🙂

 

Hey, thats the English part of the Album. Lets jump on to the Spanish part of the Album.

 

The Lead track of the album “Mas” is amazingggggg.. This is the Ricky we all loved and wanted. Guys.. Believe me.. I have been hearing this track all day long ! Its such a cool track. The hook of the song “Mas Mas Mas ” is so so catchy. One wonders why that guys didn’t release this as the lead single. It should have been such a smashing hit with people !!! You should listen to this track ! : (See: Mas : Rick Martin – Live )

He ought to release an English version of this track !

Perhaps, releasing “The Best thing about me is you” as the lead single was in tune with his coming out as a Gay in public and I suppose he wanted to make a point directly and not make us wait until ‘Manana” 🙂

And the next best track would be “Frio” which has a solo version by Ricky and another one in collaboration with Wisin & Yandel. The one with Wisin & Yandel is better [Their Collaborations with Enrique Iglesias for the tracks “Gracias a Ti”, “Lloro Por Ti” and from Enrique’s latest album Euphoria – ‘No Me Digas Que No’ were all too good. ]

The next two best tracks would be “Sera Sera” and “No Te Miento”.  The Deluxe version of the Album has the English version of the tracks as “Too Late” and “Liar” respectively. Don’t miss out the English versions 🙂

Tu Y Yo” &  “Cantame Tu Vida” are beautiful ballads.

‘Te Vas’ – is the Spanish version of Shine.  The other tracks ‘Basta Taare’ & ’Te Busco Y Te Alcazo’ are worth a listen too.

There are lots of homophobic comments about Ricky Martin in Youtube and other forums. It is just bad. Why the hell should one care whether Ricky is Straight, Gay or Bisexual. As long his Music sounds good, it doesn’t matter even if he is an Alien for Andromeda ! 

 

Don’t ever miss Ricky Martin in his latest. If you haven’t listened to his tracks his “Cup of life” or “Maria”.  Its time for “Muevelo” & “Subelo” !

Adieus Amigos 🙂
