Marta Sanchez - Soy Yo

Marta took a break for a few years, but bounced back with her fifth solo album in 2002. Entitled "Soy Yo", it was a mostly ballad heavy album with a few pop tracks inbetween. The biggest hit was the title track "Soy Yo", the second release from the album.

After this, Marta took some more time out and got married and had a little boy, and her most recent release was a best of album "Lo Mejor De Marta Sanchez", which included pretty much all of her singles as well as some new tracks, and new remixes of some old ones. Since then, she's gone a bit quiet, but there are rumours she will be back in 2006!

"Soy Yo" was written by the team behind Cher's "Believe" (originally in English and translated into Spanish by Marta.) You can certainly hear the similarities between the two, but Marta has the added advantage of having a few hotties in her video!

So there's my quick tour of some of my favourite Spanish music. Sorry I haven't been updating as reguarly as I should be, but now we go back to normal and I'll be posting some of my favourite tracks over the next few weeks! I will try to post on regular days, usually Wednesdays and Sundays (time permitting) so check back reguarly for some good stuff!
