Editors’ Notes

Her first English-language album in nearly a decade finds Gloria Estefan produced by The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams. Yet even through his updated beats and studio gloss, Estefan sounds like the same Latin pop diva with just a touch more maturity on her vocal cords. The title track opens as Estefan weaves a narrative about a teen model from Havana teetering at the edge of the profession’s slippery slope. “Wepa” comes closest to approximating the chemistry of Miami Sound Machine with what sounds like an epic summertime party erupting in the streets: pounding parade drums, blaring horn sections, hyper conga rhythms, and a chanting chorus all play under Estefan like she’s leading a parade down South Beach. Both Williams and Estefan make disco sound totally relevant in the pulsing “Make Me Say Yes”, where Williams proves that the Auto-Tune effect can in fact be used sparingly and tastefully.

Customer Reviews

She is back!!!

Miss Gloria Estefan has made a return with another sizzling hot album with a fresh setlist of delicious tracks! I could not choose a favourite song from this record as they are equally brilliant! Well done Gloria, you never cease to amaze me! Now fans, feast your ears!!!!!!

Worth the wait!

Been waiting for what seems like forever for this and I must say it does not disappoint! Welcome back Gloria!

Pharrell Does It Again

Once again Pharell has single handedly helped to make the worst album of an artist's career. He did this once with Madonna's Hard Candy - easily the worst album she has ever made.
Sadly, for Gloria he has done this again. Somehow he seems to think that Latin music involves putting heavily dubbed drums and cowbells over everything.
I love Miss Estefan and she has inroduced me to great Latin music, this album is not one. Aside from the fact that Gloria allowed Pharrell to write half the album is in itself surprising as she has always written/co written her own material.
Pharell should stick to what he knows - using computers and drum machines and leave the real music to the musicians.

As one of the biggest new stars to emerge during the mid-'80s, singer Gloria Estefan predated the coming Latin pop explosion by a decade, scoring a series of propulsive dance hits rooted in the rhythms of her native Cuba before shifting her focus to softer, more ballad-oriented fare.
