Release and promotion[edit]

Tego Calderón released three singles for El Abayarde Contra-Ataca, and they were all major singles. All three singles have music videos, though the "Quitarte To'" single didn't have as much airplay as the others. All three singles are available for digital download on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, and other major retailer stores. Tego Calderón performed "Tradicional A Lo Bravo" live on Mi TRL, and got interviewed for the album.

Background[edit]

As Tego Calderón stated, he wasn't too happy about making music on his previous album, The Underdog/El Subestimado, but when he made El Abayarde Contra-Ataca, Tego was really happy about making music. To reflect that, the lyrical style of the album is mostly influenced by African sounds, and other things Tego likes. The musical style of the album also had African sounds, including the third single, "Ni Fu Ni Fa" Produced by Gabriel "Gabo" Lugo.
