Fuerza natural (Spanish for Natural Strength) is the fifth and final album by Gustavo Cerati, released on 1 September 2009. The album features a folk sound with acoustic guitars and presence of mandolins. The first cut of the album was Déjà vu. This album was certificated gold in Argentina for 40,000 copies sold on its first week of release and 500.000 worldwide.[2] The album won a Latin Grammy in 2010 for Best Rock Album.[3]

In 2010, a year following the release of the album, Cerati suffered a stroke post-concert in Caracas, Venezuela[4] and went into a coma; his death on 4 September 2014[5][6] leaves Fuerza natural as his final-ever release.
