She drove dancers into a frenzy by issuing rough screams -- see "Piel a Piel" and "Presencie Tu Amor," where it's as if James Brown suddenly popped into the studio during a merengue recording session -- and cheerful interjections of onomatopoeic goofiness: "brrrrrrr!" And she was shadowed by precise, piquant backing vocalists, who sometimes echoed their leader, and sometimes engaged her in a vocal boxing match.
The combustible combination proved immediately successful -- Tañón breached the top 20 on the Hot Latin Songs chart with her debut single, "Una Mujer Rota" -- and durable: in April, "Asi Es el Amor," a collaboration with Wisin, cracked the top 10 on the Tropical Airplay Songs chart. It's her 27th top 10 on that chart, the most by any female singer, and a good omen for the release of her latest album, Olga Tañón y Punto, which hit shelves on Friday (May 12).
The arc of Tañón's career, in some ways, has paralleled that of Marc Anthony: both performers pumped a series of records onto the charts in the early 1990s, reinvigorating traditional forms -- merengue for Tañón, salsa for Anthony. Both gradually moved away from the driving style of their early days to make room for stately, dramatic ballads later in the decade. And both eventually tacked back towards the hard-nosed music that initially won them fame.
