"Píntame De Colores" (Paint Me In Colors) was the third single released by Gloria Estefan for her eleventh studio album 90 Millas. This exclusive single was released only at Europe, but later was released at the United States in February 2008.

Song information[edit]

This single was exclusively released at Europe on December 2007, especially for The Netherlands, where the album of 90 Millas, become in the most-successful Spanish album ever released there. However, the single was confirmed as the third promotional single to the United States.

This tune is full Tropical composition, which shows a lot of Latin-rhythms like its predecessors "No Llores" and "Me Odio". To date no remixes are officially done.

The song become in a minor hit for Estefan, being one of the few singles released to Latin music stations and not entered to the Hot Latin Songs chart, her last single made it onto the Top 40 and was a hit in the Latin Tropical field, this last being the only chart in which this song entered to the Top Ten.

For the Latin Grammy Awards of 2008, the track was nominated on the field for "Best Tropical Song", the second song for Estefan to be nominated on this category (following "No Me Dejes de Querer" in 2000), and became Estefan's first winning of a Latin Grammy for a song. She had previously won a Latin Grammy, but it was for a music video - short form; this also became her first Grammy for a song in her entire career, including the Latin and non-Latin Grammy's.

Later, the song was nominated to a Latin Billboard Music Award in the category for "Tropical Airplay Song Of The Year, Female", but she lost to Ivy Queen's song "Dime."
