La Flaca is the debut album by the Spanish Latin rock group Jarabe de Palo, released in 1996. The album was produced by Joe Dworniak for Virgin Records España. Immediately after its release, the album obtained a poor commercial reception, selling only 12,000 copies within seven months. However, when the title-track of the album was used as a TV advertisement, the album became a commercial success in Spain,[2] reaching number one on the charts and being certified six times platinum for domestic shipments exceeding 600,000 copies. Released in Europe, Latin America and the United States, it also received gold and platinum status in several other countries, including Italy, where it peaked at number two and it was certified triple platinum by the Federation of the Italian Music Industry.
