Happy 10th Birthday, “Thalía” (album)!
Today we’re celebrating the birthday of Thalia’s 7th studio album, which was released on May 21, 2002 in the USA and Latin America!
Her second self-titled album went straight to number one and it spent six consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Top Latin Album Chart and Top Latin Pop Albums.
The album received many Platinum and Gold certifications and was sold in more than 5,5 million copies worldwide.
Singles like “Tu y yo“, “No me ensenaste” and “A quien le importa” were #1 in lots of countries of Latin America, Europe and the USA, eventually becoming some of her greatest hits, while her three songs in English, “Dance dance (The Mexican)”, “Closer to you” and “You spin me round” prepared her crossover to the US market.
Looking back at users’ reviews on sites like Amazon, we find titles like “Thalia’s here, and better than ever!”, “Thalia one of the best around”, “Heavenly made!”, the album had lots of great reviews and was very well received by the public.
I don’t know how I would’ve felt about the album, had I listened to it 10 years ago when it was released (maybe the 10-year-old me would have enjoyed it haha) but ever since I became Thalia’s fan, this album has definitely been one of my favorites, I always have a great time listening to “Tu y yo” or “En la fiesta mando yo”, songs like “Asi es el destino” and “Y seguir” give me hope and strength when I need it, while “A quien le importa” is like one of my personal “anthems”… and just like I once said somewhere on this blog, “No me ensenaste” is one of the first songs that brought Thalia into my life.
I’m sure that for fans who have followed Thalia for many years before this album was released and up to this day, “Thalia” has a special place in their hearts and it’s truly great to be celebrating its 10 birthday today. That being said, let’s congratulate Thalia for doing such an amazing job, then listen to some of the songs that have been part of our lives for the past 10 years :D and watch some memorable live performances:
