It was produced by the Puerto Rican reggaetón production duo Mambo Kingz who also produced "Come On", "Puedo Reír", "Presiento", "Cuerpo Sensual", "Si Tú Me Amaras", and "Noche de Dos (Ven)" from the album.[1] The song is a blend of Cumbia and Merengue to form a more lighter Latin pop sound.

Release and chart performance[edit]

"Te Regalo Amores" was released on August 26, 2008 by Pina Records. On the Billboard Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, the song debuted at #17 on the week of September 20, 2008.[2] It reached #1 for the week of November 22, 2008 replacing "Dime" by Ivy Queen after her eight week reign, but was later succeeded by "Dime" a few weeks later.[3] On the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, the song debuted at #23 on the week of November 22, 2008 and peaked #15 for the week of December 27, 2008.[4][5] On the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, the song debuted at #37 and was labeled as "Hot Shot Debut" for the week of September 27, 2008, and peaked at #2 on the week of January 3, 2009.[6][7] "No Me Doy Por Vencido" by Luis Fonsi kept "Te Regalo Amores" from obtaining the #1 spot. This was R.K.M & Ken-Y's first single to enter the Hot Latin Songs chart since "Lloraras" in June 2007.[8] On the Billboard Latin Pop Airplay chart, the song debuted at #36 on the week of October 11, 2008 and peaked at #5 for the week of January 3, 2009.[9][10] On the Billboard Latin Tropical Airplay chart, the song debuted at #38 on the week of September 27, 2008.[11] It reached #1 for the week of January 3, 2009 replacing "En Aquel Luga" by Adolescent's Orquesta and was later succeeded by Aventura for "Por Un Segundo".[12]

Critical reception[edit]

On the review for the album, Jason Birchmeier of AllMusic commented, On "El Duo Romantico"'s second album, Ken-Y is given much of the spotlight, no surprise given his exceptional popularity. For instance, on the album's standout single, the cumbia-styled "Te Regalo Amores," R.K.M. isn't even heard from until over two minutes into the song, when he breaks into a brief verse that lasts less than 20 seconds and is obscured by a keyboard melody that appears out of nowhere and is so high in the mix, it essentially relegates his rap to background noise. As evidence that not all is fair in the world of R.K.M. & Ken-Y, featured guest Ivy Queen fares better on the album-closing remix of "Te Regalo Amores," where she gets around 30 seconds for her verse and doesn't have to compete with a keyboard melody.[13] According to Hispanic Television, the remix with Ivy Queen is a classic.[14] At the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Latin awards, the song received an award for Urban Song of the Year.[15]
