Ricky Martin releases new album titled "A Quien Quiera Escuchar" on February 10, 2015
Sazoneros listen up! International recording artist and winner of multiple GRAMMY® awards, Ricky Martin, is gearing up to release his tenth and most personal album to date. On Tuesday, February 10th,. “A Quien Quiera Escuchar”, will debut for millions of fans all over the world so make sure you follow Ricky on Twitter and tweet him using the hashtag #RickyAQQE to let him know your favorite song on the album! Last week, I had the opportunity to sit down with Martin in Miami and chat about his new music which features a good balance between ballads and dance tracks. I was really impressed because Ricky told us he had spent months recording these songs in music studios in Australia, Puerto Rico, Los Angeles and Mexico City. According to Ricky, his new album is an open love letter that exudes romance, honesty and transparency. During our interview, Ricky also shared insight into his busy but fulfilling life and career. Whether he's composing music or helping children through his foundation, he always makes time for his two children, meditation and travel. When asked how he manages everything that's going on in his career right now (a new clothing line, children's book and an upcoming global music tour), Ricky stated "it's all thanks to my management team and the people who surround me." I was truly impressed by Ricky's relaxed demeanor during our roundtable chat. Ten albums later, he knows exactly what he wants out of life and where he sees himself going in the near future. One of the ladies in our group discussion asked Ricky: what is your next goal? Ricky answered that he wants to do a "one man show on Broadway" so keep your eyes open for this one! If that wasn't enough, he also revealed that he's producing a television show but we'll have to wait for a future announcement about this particular project. Toward the end of our session, I personally asked him about his inspiration for this album. Ricky says he wanted to "return back home with this album so that's why you'll hear romantic ballads." You have to admit...the man sings a love song and you can't help but melt! In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I hope you'll all check out his deluxe edition of awesome music tomorrow and if you can't wait till then, you can pre-order your copy on iTunes.
Here's a preview of Ricky's favorite song on the album called "Disparo Al Corazon." He agrees that the title of this song may sound dramatic but at the end of the day...most relationships can't function without a little drama. It's a very honest song for Ricky so leave me a comment below with your thoughts on this track. If you're curious to know when Ricky will hit a stage near you, you'll be happy to know that he's kicking off a promotional tour featuring concerts in multiple countries so stay tuned! Make sure you watch Premio Lo Nuestro 2015 because he's nominated in four different categories. Vamos Ricky!!!
