WOW. Simply amazing or should I say asombrosa since Christina Aguilera is belting her little heart out in Spanish on her new track. “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti” which roughly translates to “Today I Feel Like Having You” is a duet with Mexican singer Alejandro Fernandez. The track is a remake of a famous Spanish classic originally sung by Miguel Gallardo back in 1975. Xtina and Fernandez recorded it as the theme of the telenovela La Tempestad. Even before learning that, I immediately noticed how dramatic the song was. It all makes perfect sense now.
Alejandro is a fantastic vocalist, but he’s just musical roadkill when Christina gets to her parts. The 32-year-old singer just slays it. Even though he probably connects with the lyrics more since its his native tongue, Aguilera does a good job of pulling it off even though I’m sure she doesn’t understand a lick of it. LOL. Granted, she did release an entire Spanish album back in the day. I loved Mi Reflejo where she translated a few of her biggest hits to Spanish and sang original tunes as well. Check out Auggie’s superb new song below. Love or hate her, you can’t deny the woman has a phenomenal instrument.
What do you think of the track? Do you think Christina should release another Spanish album? Sound off below.
