Romance is the eighth studio album by Mexican singer Luis Miguel, released on November 19, 1991 by WEA Latina. Although the production was originally intended to be another collaboration with Juan Carlos Calderón, that plan was scrapped when Calderón was unable to compose songs for the album. Facing a deadline in his record-label contract to record new material, at his manager's suggestion Miguel decided to perform bolero music for his next project. Mexican singer-songwriter Armando Manzanero was hired by WEA Latina to co-produce the album with Miguel. Recording began in August 1991 at Ocean Way Recording in Hollywood, California, with Bebu Silvetti serving as arranger.
On the album, Miguel covers twelve boleros originally recorded between 1944 and 1986. The first two singles, "Inolvidable" and "No Sé Tú", reached number one on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart in the United States and spent six months atop the Mexican charts. "Mucho Corazón" and "Cómo" were in the top five of the Hot Latin Songs charts, while "Usted" and "La Barca" received airplay throughout Latin America. Miguel promoted the album with a tour of the United States and Latin America. The album was generally well-received by music critics whom commended Miguel's performance as well as the production of the album. Miguel received a number of accolades, including a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Pop Album.
Gil started to play music as a child and was still a teenager when he joined his first band. He began his career as a bossa nova musician, and then grew to write songs that reflected a focus on political awareness and social activism. He was a key figure in the Música Popular Brasileira and tropicália movements of the 1960s, alongside artists such as longtime collaborator Caetano Veloso. The Brazilian military regime that took power in 1964 saw both Gil and Veloso as a threat, and the two were held for nine months in 1969 before they were told to leave the country. Gil moved to London, but returned to state of Bahia in 1972 and continued his musical career, as well as working as a politician and environmental advocate.
