Catarsis track listing

"I Love You... Te Quiero" is the fourth single from the Spanish born-Mexican singer Belinda featuring American rapper Pitbull, from her fourth studio album Catarsis. It was released on radio on January 22, 2014 by Capitol Latin.[1][2]

Background[edit]

"I Love You... Te Quiero" was announced as the fourth single by Belinda via her Twitter account. The song was released to radio stations globally in late January 2014.[3][4]

"I'm so excited. The radio positions gained impressive, in a few days (the song) is up more than 10 positions, so I'm very grateful to the public that is and has been requesting it. This song is growing much faster than the other, which has surprised and happy, just like Pitbull, who is also part of this song."

—Belinda, Perdiódico Noroeste[5]

Composition[edit]

The single is a powerful Spanglish pop-dance production with a dose of electronic sounds and dubstep.[6] "I Love You... Te Quiero" is co-written by Belinda, Pitbull, "Gavriel “Vein" Aminov, José Ignacio Peregrín, Paolo Prudencio and Lavi "Lavi Beats" Hoss.[6] The song was produced by Vein and Lavi Beats.[7]

"Originally, I had not planned to record with Pitbull, but my producer is his friend and partner. One day, Vein provided me a beat that was originally for Pitbull, I was surprised. We talked to him and he gave me the song with the condition that we recorded it together."

—Belinda, ElNuevoHerald.com[8]
