Natalie Cole En Español Album Giveaway
Natalie Cole’s first trip outside the USA was to Mexico, with her father, when she was 8 years old. At that time, Nat King Cole was promoting his first Spanish-language album, 1958’s Cole Español. It was an enormous success throughout Latin America, spawning two follow-up recordings — and now, 55 years later, his daughter’s Natalie Cole en Espanol, which was released on June 25.
Recently, Cole delved into her father’s recordings in Spanish, recruiting the renowned Cuban-American producer Rudy Perez to helm a collection of romantic classics covered by her father, along with some personal favorites. On Bachata Rosa, the first single, she is joined by the Dominican icon Juan Luis Guerra…such a great duo! But the track likely to garner the most attention (and included below) is Acercate Mas which is presented as a duet with Cole’s late father, using the same recording technique she popularized more than 20 years ago on Unforgettable.
We have to pay some mad respect to Natalie…who although she doesn’t speak Spanish, does a pretty good job in her pronunciation and totally transports you to a dreamy state with her voz!
