Colombian Superstar Juanes to Live-Stream 'Terra Live Music in Concert' in Miami Featuring New Tunes from His Latest Album, "Loco de Amor"
"I believe love is the most powerful energy we have in this life. Everything is about love," says Colombian superstar Juanes about his new songs on his highly-anticipated album, Loco de Amor.
"It's like putting a ray of love through a prism, so it's all the different approaches that love has in all of its relationships," Juanes explained to Billboard.
The Grammy and Latin Grammy Award-winning star, who made his mark on an international scale at first as a Spanish-language artist and not as a Spanish-to-English crossover star, hasn't compromised his music to adhere to industry standards -- instead the music has always spoken for itself, regardless of the language.
Known for his stellar hits "Es Por Ti" and "La Camisa Negra," Juanes says that he's in a different place than he once was -- "I am a happy person now. I feel comfortable with myself, having learning many lessons in life. I have always loved music ever since I was a child, and now I am very happy about it, so this album reflects those moments and this feeling I have."
Juanes is gearing up for his latest album, Loco de Amor, in which he considers to be his "best album -- no doubt," he says.
He added that in this case, he is "100 pecent sure" that it is his best album considering his stage in life right now -- he's married to a beautiful wife with whom he has three children. He can also reflect on an incredibly successful career thus far, so he's doing alright I'd say!
Further putting himself on the map, Juanes teamed up with five-time Grammy Award-winning English producer Steve Lillywhite, who has worked with stellar acts, such as The Rolling Stones, U2, Dave Matthews Band, The Killers and Morrissey.
Juanes also teamed up with an impressive line-up of musicians, including: Emmanuel 'Meme' del Real ("Café Tacvba"), Abe Laboriel on the drums (Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney), Brian Ray on the guitar (Paul McCartney), percussionist Richard Bravo, and Fernando Tobon with the guitar and the Colombian tiple.
He continues to make a impact and bring the hits, and on March 6, he made a splash on the Billboard charts yet again.
He "leaps 11-1 on Latin Airplay with latest single 'La Luz' to secure his ninth No. 1 on the chart," Billboard reports. "The uptempo track surged to 12.1 million audience impressions at radio, a 64 percent growth, according to Nielsen BDS. It climbs 16-11 on Hot Latin Songs." In total, "La Luz" has reached No. 1 in 15 countries including Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, the U.S., among others.
Terra, a global digital media company and content producer with a presence in 19 countries, is teaming up with Juanes at the Terra Live Music in Concert in Miami (which will also be live-streamed) on Wednesday, March 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET to debut his upcoming new album Loco de Amor ("Crazy from Love") which will be released globally on Monday, March 10.
What can fans hear during the live-stream concert?
During the concert, fans can hear the songs from his highly anticipated new album, including his first single, "La Luz" (The Light) - which has been called "a dynamic, seductive, engaging and exhilarating track."
Juanes has six solo albums to his credit and multi-platinum sales of over 15 million copies. He's the world's leading all-Spanish language rock artist with two Grammys and 19 Latin Grammys under his belt, as well as with nine No. 1 singles on Billboard's Latin Singles charts.
He's been called "the first truly international rock star to emerge from Latin America" by The Associated Press and "a soulful poet and Latin America's hottest singer-songwriter," by The New York Times.
As a Spanish-speaking artst, he's has one of the biggest social media followings with over 15 million fans.
When he's not making magic with his music, Juanes is a philanthropist who does charitable work for his own Mi Sangre Foundation. He's also the co-founder of the Paz sin Fronteras (Peace Without Borders) organization, which "utilizes music to unite populaces regardless of political or geographic divides and advocates that all people are entitled to the basic human right of peace."
