Xtina pays tribute to Vicente Fernandez on his album “La Fuerza”
The American singer of Latin origin, Christina Aguilera, has released her second album in Spanish La Fuerza, and pitched is a tribute to his roots and to the king of regional Mexican music, Vicente Fernandez.
“I wanted to do something that would show them how proud I am of my Latin side, the strength that gives me this part of my life, my ancestry and my culture,” she said.
After 22 years, Xtina returned to the language that connects her to her roots, and in doing so, she rediscovered the sounds and memories of her childhood with her Ecuadorian family.
“I wanted to do something that would show them how proud I am of my Latin side, the strength that gives me this part of my life, my ancestry and my culture,” the singer explained.
Collaborating with Ozuna, Nathy Peluso, Becky G, Nicki Nicole and other Latin artists, the result is a three-part project that the 41-year-old artist will deliver to his fans throughout 2022. La Fuerza is the first of these three chapters with original songs co-written by Aguilera, although she is not fluent in the language.
In this first part, Aguilera goes from reggaeton to Latin fusion, passing by the ballad and the guaracha. In her song “La Reina”, she addresses ranchera music and pays homage to its eternal king, Vicente Fernandez.
The first song released was “Pa’ mis muchachas”, and it sought to demonstrate the strength of Latin women. The song was first performed in November last year with Becky G, Natti Natasha and Nicki Nicole at the Latin Grammy Awards.
Aguilera has already released three songs from his new project and his fans are waiting for the rest of the tracks to enjoy his iconic voice.
