Spain: Rosa Returns to Music With New AlbumWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
The Eurovision Song Contest has not proven to be positive for Spain in recent years and following three disappointing results from 1998 until 2000, it dawned to the broadcaster; TVE to make some changes and come up with a brand new selection process. The idea worked because the new Operación Triunfo drew in huge ratings and also created stars in the industry apart from achieving consecutive top ten positions from 2001 until 2004. One of the winners of the selection process, Rosa Lopez is still a well known figure in the Spanish music industry but has been somewhat in hiatus in the past three years, gearing up for a comeback with a brand new album, her seventh in total and one which is self-titled featuring a brand new sound for the artist who has somewhat done it all from pop to flamenco.
The multi-platinum artist not only returns with a brand new sound but she looks far slimmer and ready to take the industry by charge. The first single off the album was released a couple of days ago and bears the name Yo No So Esa, originally performed by Mari Trini but given a facelift through a brand new sound which will surely be enjoyed by the masses. This seems to be the only cover of the album because the track listing infuses latin with pop along with a couple of ballads as well. Most of the songs on the album have been written by Jesús Cañadilla who is of course well known to our community as the writer of Algo Pequeñito performed by Daniel Diges in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest as well as Eos which was performed in the national final of 2011. The producer of the album is none other than Alejandro de Pinedo who has worked with the likes of Nazaret, D'Nash, Arkaitz and Lorena amongst others.
