Album information[edit]

The album was her second produced by Oscar Lopez (tracks 1 to 7) and the first by Juan Carlos Calderón (tracks 9 to 14), and both co-produced the track "Paloma Herida". It is the first album by the singer to include more than eleven tracks (and to date the only) with fourteen. This was the only time that Guzmán worked with both producers.

Three singles were released to promote the album, "Algo Natural", "Enemigos" and "Si no te has ido, vete". "Enemigos" being the most successful. She received a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. It lost to Shakira's "Octavo Día" at the first Latin Grammy Awards.
