Well, I don’t seem to manage writing this kind of posts on time… but better late than never, right? 😀
Thalia’s 9th studio album, El Sexto Sentido, was released on July 19, 2005, with 12 tracks and 3 English versions. It had a great debut in Billboard’s Top Latin Albums (#3) and got two Gold certifications in Argentina and Mexico and two Platinum ones in the USA, being sold in nearly 300.000 copies.
Now, enough with the numbers, why don’t we go a little bit behind the story of this album? On the special website released for El Sexto Sentido (http://thalia.com/elsextosentido/) we can find a section titled “T Undressed“, where Thalia herself answered to some questions about the album. I think it’s pretty interesting, so I’m going to choose a few of them and show them here as well.
Amar sin ser amada
Speaking of, here’s the poster of the “two Thalias”, I love it and I love the text on the right:
As for the songs, El Sexto Sentido is definitely one of my favorite albums and I think that was pretty obvious, since a lot of my “Song of the week” posts were inspired by this album and my experiences and how I felt during those weeks. In case you missed them, here’s Olvidame, No me voy a quebrar, 24.000 besos and Cantando por un sueño, from the Re+Loaded album. It’s worth mentioning that Un alma sentenciada is also one of my favorite ballads, as well as Loca, while Amar sin ser amada and No puedo vivir sin ti are as well on my list of favorites from this album.
I was also glad to see that this album’s birthday got a proper celebration on Twitter, here are some of Thalia’s RTs 🙂
Feel free to leave your comments about this album 😀
PS: 1. Look at her body on the ASSA Grammy performance!
2. What is the pretty blonde lady doing to her in the Seduccion video, minute 2:08? hahahaha just kidding 😛
3. Are there any more LIVE performances of songs from this album, other than Amor prohibido? 😀
