This is the lead single from Spanish singer/songwriter Alejandro Sanz's eighth studio album, Paraíso Express. The song was premiered on a fan club members-only section of Sanz's official website on September 18, 2009.
The song finds Sanz trading lyrics with Alicia Keys in English and Spanish. This duet with Keys is not the first time the Spanish singer has teamed up with a female superstar. "La Tortura," his 2005 collaboration with Shakira was a #23 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
Sanz said in a statement regarding Paraíso Express: "On this album, I first composed the melody and then the lyrics. It is more of a rock album than my past releases, with more elegant and positive lyrics and a happier and more rhythmic spirit."
