Las cosas son así sin ti

The female singer featured in Moenia's "Te equivoque" was Denisse Guerrero, the stylish lead singer of Mexican group Belanova, whose second album Dulce Beat was a huge success in Mexico. The group's style is thoroughly pop, maybe with a little electronica influence (or just synth-pop) thrown in, sweet as a result of both the melodies and Denisse's voice, practically designed for cooing. The group is currently working on its third album and hasn't ruled out the possibility of recording English language songs some day--they've already toyed with that a little, as Dulce Beat contains the English language song "Sexy," but that song doesn't rival their Spanish-language work, though it's still pretty good. Still, if they can manage to nail down the feel of their Spanish work in English, expect them to become blogger favorites.

Niño--the album's fourth single, but my favorite song on it, although there are multiple other songs on the album that rival it for quality. Sweet and catchy (two adjectives which you could apply to almost any song on the album), you're not going to get a full-out throw-your-hands-up-in-the-air aggressive dancefest from this song, but there is a sort of exuberance in the chorus (despite the song's subject, telling the one you love you have to leave because "la vida me invito/hacia otro lugar/sin ti"), and the song itself is definitely danceable.

To buy Belanova's second album Dulce Beat, go here (physical) or visit iTunes; for example, if you live in the U.S., go here. The album is full of quality songs and, if it were in English, would undoubtedly be being enjoyed almost everywhere; I very much recommend listening to some preview clips and then picking it up.

Next up: a boy band, I think.

It's the sort of song that I might play when I'm in a mood that would also lead to me playing Sophie Ellis-Bextor's "If You Go." "Lush" is a perfect word! :)

I am in love with dennise. I would do anything to see her. She has a body of a godess and the voice of a angel. She has eyes that hypnotheis you the first time you see them. She is the hottest women in the GALAXY. I would give up my soul just to talk to her. I love dennise!!!!
