Un Tributo (a José José) (English A tribute to José José) is a 1998 tribute album to José José.[1]

Paying homage to José José for his influence on Latin pop music, the album was recorded by several popular Latin artists of different musical genres such as Molotov, Cafe Tacuba, Julieta Venegas, Moenia, Beto Cuevas, and Aleks Syntek.

The main hits of the album were: "Lo que no fue, no será" by El Gran Silencio, "Una mañana" by Cafe Tacuba, "Lo pasado, pasado" by Maldita Vecindad, "Gavilán o paloma" by La Lupita and "Volcán" by Moenia (the last two released video clip aired on MTV). Cafe Tacuba performed the song "Una mañana" on their MTV Unplugged in 1995.

The album started a trend of Latin rock bands and hip hop artists recording old songs from music icons such as Juan Gabriel[2] and Sandro de América,[3] as an homage. In 2013, another album was released titled Un Tributo (a José José) 2.
