Draco Rosa featuring Ricky Martin – Más y Más

Puerto Rican singer composer Draco Rosa, who also used to be in Menudo, returns to the music scene after his 2-year absence, in which he was diagnosed and defeated cancer, with a proper music video (he had previously released a version of Penélope [1] featuring Maná), featuring fellow Menudo member Ricky Martin, reuniting after working together for Martin’s Sound Loaded.

For those not in the know, Draco Rosa wrote and/or produced (or is blamed for, depending on your stance on Ricky Martin’s music) some of Martin’s biggest musical hits, including Por Arriba, Por Abajo [MV], La Bomba [MV], La Copa de la Vida [MV], Livin’ La Vida Loca [MV] and a lot of other tracks from Ricky Martin’s English debut, and finally She Bangs [MV].

The single titled Más y Más (More and More), included in Rosa’s upcoming album titled Vida — which had been postponed a number of times — is a re-working of Draco Rosa’s Grammy Latino winning song [MV]… which in turn in the Spanish version of his song titled Crash Push [1], included in his 2004 album titled Mad Love.

While lyrics are…  a bit on the weak side, in terms of use of language, this new version of the song feels better… with better production and a lot moodier than the 2004 original versions (in both English and Spanish). I kinda dig the music video, shot in a mansion in New York by Carlos Perez [website], who has directed music videos for Marc Anthony, Mala Rodriguez, and… er… Don Omar, Daddy Yankee, and some other music videos for Martin himself, including, Lo Mejor de Mi Vida Eres Tú [MV].

Vida is set to be released on March 18th and 19th [1] and will include a tracklist filled with Draco Rosa’s hits in collaborations with a BROAD variety of Latin artists, including Juan Luis Guerra, Alejandro Sanz, Ruben Blades, Enrique Bunbury, Shakira, Andres Calamaro, Rene from Calle 13, Marc Anthony and Juanes… which can only mean one thing: as a new edition of Grammy Latino comes, Draco Rosa’s album will be sweeping it for numbers of votes alone.
