I remember that when I invited Alejandro Sanz to do the torture I had invited Mana, but they refused. They invited me later to do My Truth, but at that time it was true, when I invited Alejandro, who was also successful, there was no collaboration and reggaeton had just started, it was something very separate from Puerto Rico. The Colombian presented and confirmed that this did not prevent him from maintaining a good relationship with the band.

He also added: “We practiced torture, which I remember was very successful In Spain. But in Spain, reggaeton was not yet heard, and there were many prejudices against reggaeton, and “La Torture” was reggaeton. “What happened is we put Alejandro Sanz in to hide it a little bit.”

This decision was one of the most successful in his extensive music career, allowing him to break out all over the world. The song rose to the top of various charts, something so far unusual for Spanish-speaking music. As the artist mentioned, this was a time when reggaeton was just emerging and didn’t have the support that artists like Bad Bunny, for example, have today.
