Excerpted from an interview with Billboard....
(“Vivir Mi Vida”) It’s not a typical salsa track and it’s not a typical me track either. I thought it was the perfect punch to throw and it’s not the strongest song in the album. But I thought it’s the perfect track to espouse my philosophy... this was a baila baila song. But I was thinking of the long story. Go with your gut, it feels good, it sets the tone of where I’m at in my life, it’s a feel good song and I really wanted it to be part of my life...
I had waited so long and I had years and years of pondering my approach to the next album that when the time came is was like going through the notes in my mind and applying it. I don’t know how else to put it. I couldn’t wait to upload all that shit in my head. Me and Sergio would do three songs a day, live there with the band. Had we arranged these songs two hours later, two days later, it would have been totally different....
There’s hardly a week where I’m not performing in another country. There’s a lot of salsa. And even markets that you wouldn’t consider have salsa stations. There’s a lot of salsa clubs in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Panama, Venezuela. But you can’t give them shit to consume. I think it’s time for everybody to wake up and put the work in. Record the next album like your life depended on it. A relationship with an album is like everything else. If you give shit, you get shit. Slow and steady wins the race. (Label, 2013-07-18)
