stated that recording an album along with Cuban singer-songwriter Pablo
Milanes, which he expects to be ready by early 2005, was a dream come
A Cuban music fan, the popular singer has started to work
with Milanes in the preparation of the album, to include famous songs,
as well as to previously unreleased, as he disclosed in exclusive for
the local newspaper El Nuevo Dia.We have already chosen the songs and now we only need to agree where
we are going to record. It will probably be in Santo Domingo or
Venezuela. We will have a little bit of everything: boleros, guaracha
and, of course, the salsa Pablo loves. I think the two voices are going
to fit very well together and it will be a very nice project,” he explained.
