Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track from the Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin's ninth studio and first bilingual album Musica + Alma + Sexo ("Music + Soul + Sex"). The record is more uptempo than many of Martin's previous releases and he explained to Billboard magazine: "When I get up on stage, the first thing I say is, 'We're here to forget everything and to have a blast the next two hours.' And when I work with my producers, we look for that liberty. It's up-tempo because I'm at a point in my life where I simply want to be, and be free and not be contrived at all."
  • Martin told Billboard about this song: "It could be the '80s or the '90s or last Spring. Depends what generation you belong to. What I wanted to do was dance a little with this track and get away from the things you're supposed to do in life. And I introduce some characters there who are all artists, like Tico with his boom box in Manhattan. I made them up but they're real."
