Background[edit]

On August 26, 2009 A.B. Quintanilla y Los Kumbia All Starz debuted a new song called "Chica Fatal" on the program Don Francisco Presenta, transmitted by Univision, sung by A.B. Quintanilla and DJ Kane. They later sang the song again on Premios Oye! 2009 on November 24, 2009 this time sung by Ricky Rick and DJ Kane. It was thought to be the new single until A.B. Quintanilla confirmed it wasn't the new single and that it won't be on the album, instead another song will be chosen for to be the new single. On March 2010 the music video was recorded for the new single in Los Angeles, California. On March 16, 2010 the MySpace profile for Kumbia All Starz was updated since November 11, 2008 confirming the new single will be "Hipnótika" featuring Voltio and Marciano Cantero from Los Enanitos Verdes which was released on April 13, 2010. The album's name will be La Vida De Un Genio and it was set to be released on May 18, 2010, then changed on June 29, 2010, but then changed to be released on July 27, 2010. A.B. Quintanilla has been working on the album since September 2009. The album was recorded in 43 days between January 8, 2010 and March 22, 2010.[4] The album's title is a tribute A.B. Quintanilla's father Abraham Quintanilla, Jr. who steered his career as well as that of his late sister Selena. Similar in concept to Santana's Supernatural, the songs were either written or co-written by A.B. Quintanilla with featured vocals by various artists.
