Ricardo Arjona’s New Single “Te Quiero”
The 3rd single, Te Quiero, from Ricardo Arjona‘s 13th album Independiente has officially been released! After much success of his first two singles, “El Amor“, which reached #1 on the Billboard Latin charts, and “Fuiste Tú” (my fav!) featuring Gaby Moreno. Te Quiero is expected to rapidly climb the charts after its June release. Add to that the world tour Arjona just launched to promote this album…so, Arjona fans…get excited!
This lovely song has been a fan favorite since the 2011 release of the album which was produced by Arjona himself, “Los Gringos,” and Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Tommy Torres. Fun fact: It is Arjona’s first album not to be directly released by Warner Brothers, but by his own independent label, Metamorfosis.
As a gringa, what I like about this song is the way it so eloquently describes the meaning of the title phrase….which doesn’t really have an equivalent in English. Since I learned the difference between Te Quiero and Te Amo in Spanish class, I’ve always been intrigued by the deep differences in these phrases and I love how Arjona explains it in his lyrics:
“No voy a rebuscar en la academia, palabras para ver quién me las premia, si este mundo cabe en dos palabras: Te Quiero”
