The Sounds of America: ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’
Martin had seen some previous success with his solo records in Spanish-speaking markets. But it was his 1999 Spanglish recordings that made him a star in the United States.
“Livin’ La Vida Loca” did more than take Ricky Martin to the top of the charts in the U.S. and around the world. It paved the way for an avalanche of Latin pop artists who followed in his footsteps.
The Sounds of America is produced by Jennie Cataldo for BMP Audio.
