Album information[edit]

El Sexto Sentido is mostly sung in Spanish, except for three songs in English at the end of the disc. The album contains some exquisite ballads (as "Un alma sentenciada" or "Olvídame"), pop rhythm songs (like "Amar sin ser amada", and "Un sueño para dos") and Latin dance songs (like "Seducción" and "No me voy a quebrar"). She also covered "Amor Prohibido", which belongs to the fellow Latina Selena, Thalía sang the song Live on Selena ¡VIVE! in 2005 and "24,000 Besos", an 1980s Italian hit by Adriano Celentano. On the other hand, El sexto sentido Re+Loaded (a special version of this album) included the bachata-ballad styled song "No, no, no" featuring Anthony Romeo Santos.

El Sexto Sentido brings the well-known composer's songs and producing Estéfano. The album in general was well planned, very fact and acted with emotions. The album has also been nominated in both 2005 and 2006 Latin Billboard Awards and Latin Grammy.[3] This album was a financial success internationally.
