The 10-track CD includes the advance lead singles, “Say Yes To La Vida” and “Caña Dulce” The album’s third single, the title track “Bacharengue”, will debut with a new music video soon after the album’s official release.
Combining a unique and original blend of merengue, reggaeton, salsa and other influences, Nelson O’s music is stylish, energetic and universal, perhaps even more so for its irreverent bi-lingual lyrics. Frequently switching between English, Spanish and Spanglish, Nelson O’s lyrics reflect an expansive and generous world-view. “Bacharengue is the result of 4 years of writing, experimenting, and recording,” Nelson O said. “The musicians who contributed to Bacharengue are an outstanding group of talents who followed my vision for dance-friendly Latin beats that affirm freedom from boundaries, and a passion for life!”
The album was produced by Nelson O and Julliard School of Music graduate Pete Masitti, who has written for and produced major label acts such as Toni Braxton, Hootie and the Blow Fish, Luis Miguel, KC and the Sunshine Band, Julio Iglesias Sr., Julia Iglesias Jr., Shakira, Taylor Dayne, Kelly Rowland, Paul Stanley of KISS, Geri Halliwell (The Spice Girls), Mana, Yolandita and numerous others. Bacharengue will feature a remix of the single “Caña Dulce” by internationally acclaimed DJ Hex Hector.
