Song informationEdit

This song was written by Thalía, Cory Rooney, JC Oliver and S. Barnes, and produced by Poke y Tone and Cory Rooney. Also, it contains an excerpt of "Mexican", written by Alan Shacklock.

Spanish version features Marc Anthony's vocals in the chorus - Both Thalía and Marc Anthony were recording their new albums with Cory Rooney at the same time, and one day Rooney showed Marc Anthony a song that he was producing for Thalía ("The Mexican 2002"). Then he thought it was amazing and asked Rooney for a collaboration in the chorus in order to surprise Thalía.

The Hex Hector Club remix of the song received airplay in 2002. An extended version of this remix (clocking in at 8:48 & is performed in English) appears on Thalia's self titled 2003 album.

PromotionEdit

In December 2003, Thalía was invited to the Jingle Ball along with other artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Beyonce, Sean Paul, and Simple Plan and where she was the first of nine artists to sing where she performed the song along with her hits Baby, I'm in Love, I Want You, and ¿A Quién le Importa?.[1]
