Album information[edit]

After a successful year, Kany entered the recording studio to record her second album.[5] According to Kany herself, the album is more "pop, rock and soft ballads". Garcia is also excited to collaborate with Tego Calderón on "El Feo" song.[6] With the duet with Tego Calderón, Kany explained that the song with Calderon, "El Feo", is the genre of ska and rock and is based on the history of this beautiful girl who falls in love with an ugly man.[7]

Garcia recorded some of the songs of her second album with Latin American instruments such as the Puerto Rican cuatro and tiple. Kany experience more into the rock music more in this album. The first single Feliz, has more of "Latin American" style and folk style.[8] The song was inspired by an argument that Kany had with a friend of hers and while visiting Latin American countries when promoting her last album Cualquier Día.[9]

The album "Boleto de Entrada" has received mostly positive reviews.

  • AllMusic review: "Garcia continues to evolve as a full-flavored artist on a record that mingles the melancholy majestic with the firestorms, the overarching pop with breezy power rock. Despite the album's title, Garcia is more a Spanish-language pop singer than a Latin popster. Although she does slip in a bolero or two, namely the comely "Esta Vida Tuya Y Mía", most of the tracks on the 2009 album reveal an artist weaned on the American Pop of the 90' from alternative soul, as she throws in everything from Indigo Girls-style folk ballads "Hasta Donde", to The Strokes-ish baroom indie-rock "Eres Tu" to new country balladry "12 de Noviembre" to Guy-level R&B seduction pieces "Cuando tu no Estas". It's an alluring and unpredictable, if heavily airbrushed, breakout."[15]
