Hu Hu Hu is the fourth album by Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade, released in May 2009 after an almost four years hiatus from popular music.[1] (She had released a classical EP, Las 4 Estaciones Del Amor in 2008.) Lafourcade decided to name the album "Hu Hu Hu" because she perceived the phrase to be "an expression of joy".

The album was produced by Emmanuel del Real (who produced "Casa" in 2005), Marco Moreno and Ernesto García. The album was nominated for Best female Pop Vocal Album at the 2009 Latin Grammy Awards (won by Laura Pausini) and Best Latin Pop album at the 2010 Grammy Awards (won by La Quinta Estación). Club Fonograma also named the album the 2nd best of 2009,[2] and the 7th best of the decade.[3]

"Azul" was not supported by her record label, had an independent promotion by Natalia only (by choice), so she included it in her playlist on her MySpace.
