More than a billion viewers in 187 countries across the globe 

    felt the power and energy of Ricky Martin's electrifying

    performance of "The Cup Of Life" at the 1999 Grammy

    Awards ceremony; "La Copa de la Vida," the official song of

    the World Cup France '98, has been a #1 single in more than

    30 countries. That same night, Ricky's latest full-length Latin

    recording, Vuelve, won the Grammy for Best Latin Pop

    Performance. With his magical career-defining performance,

    Ricky Martin -- an international superstar who has sold more

    than 15 million records worldwide and packs stadiums from

    Buenos Aires to Beijing to New Delhi and beyond-- was

    suddenly a recognizable name and presence in more than 24

    million U.S. households. Ricky Martin, his first English

    language album, is the next step in the evolution of this

    remarkable talent. 

    "It's all about communicating," Ricky says by way of

    explaining his decision to record in English. "I will never stop

    singing in Spanish -- that's who I am -- but this was always part

    of the plan." A labor of love and passion, Ricky Martin has

    been two years in the making. "I was not going to release this

    album until I was completely content with what I'd be

    presenting," admits Ricky, the consummate professional and

    painstaking artist. "I want to listen to my music in 30 years and

    say, 'Great album!' The time for this album is now, not

    because I'm ready now and I wasn't before, but because now

    the music is ready." 

    The first track off Ricky Martin is "Livin' La Vida Loca," a

    sensuous celebration of life driven by a loaded rock bass line,

    sexy-smart lyrics, raw vocals and pulsating rhythms.

    According to Ricky, "that's the single because I want to say,

    'Hey! Boom! I'm here! Check this out!' The song has a little bit

    of Latin, a little bit of ska, a little bit of rock, there's even a

    little bit of the '60s, sort of a James Bond sound." 

    Like the single, Ricky Martin explores an eclectic musical

    range. "Yes, I come from Puerto Rico," he says, "I grew up

    listening to Boston, Cheap Trick, Journey, David Bowie. When

    I was a kid, my brothers and I were all into rock, rock, rock." 

    Ultimately, however, Ricky got a lesson in Latin music he

    couldn't ignore. "One day our mother got tired of rock," he

    recalls with a smile. "She said, 'I can't stand it anymore!' and

    grabbed us by the ears and took us to a Celia Cruz concert. It

    really affected me."                 

    Today, Ricky says, "I listen to everything. I'm like a sponge.

    I'm in this creative moment that feels like, 'Let's get it out!'" On

    one end of the spectrum, Ricky delivers the stripped-down, yet

    impassioned, sitar-laced "She's All I Ever Had," while on the

    other there's "Shake Your Bon-Bon," a tantalizing Latinized

funk-rock-confection with hyper-horns, sly female background
