Song History

The song exemplified some of Gloria's musical roots, much like in the style of her earlier music with Miami Sound Machine, and is much in the style of "Conga" and "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You".

Though the song was only a minor chart hit in the US, in Europe it increased Gloria's popularity. Furthermore, she obtained her first MTV Video Music Award for this song for the "International Viewer's Choice Awards" at the Ceremony in 1990.

The remixes of the song and short editions were created by: Pablo Flores, who would go on to remix many other Gloria recordings, as well as Keith Cohen and David Morales.
