Amor a la Mexicana (English: Mexican-style love) is the fifth studio album by Mexican singer Thalía. The album has been regarded as one of the singer's best releases to date, especially for the album's first single "Amor a la Mexicana", which showcased the evolution of Thalía as a musician.
The album had major success in Latin America, the U.S., Spain, France, Philippines and other European countries.
While it is assumed the song "Echa pa'lante" was included in the soundtrack of 1998 movie Dance with Me, starring Vanessa L. Williams and Puerto Rican pop star Chayanne, the version in the movie is completely different from the original song, even changing its message. The original song, in this album, was a political protest song against the ruling PRI in the 1997 Mexican parliamentary elections.
"Es tu amor" was released as the promotional single of the film "Ever After" in Latin America.
