This album is a harmonious combination of catchy, danceable, fun pop rhythms mixed with passionate velvety smooth ballads - all delivered in a spicy Latin flavor at its best. All new original songs by Lopez and friends, produced by Jerry and James Hosmer. Co-writers include James Hosmer, Bill Zappia, Paul Dourge, Gilberto Lopez Sr., Gilbert Lopez Jr., David Richardson, and Cocho Arbe.
The captivating Latin pulse of the first song will really coax you into listening to the rest of the recording and several of the songs are sure to be dance floor hits. Some of the songs are performed in Spanish and we also plan to release a total Spanish version of the whole album.
