Busca una mujer, or commonly known as Un Hombre Busca Una Mujer, is the sixth studio album by superstar Luis Miguel. It was produced by Juan Carlos Calderón, and released on November 25, 1988, as the second album released with Warner Music. The first single (and most successful) was "La Incondicional" which spent seven months on the top ten of many charts in Latin America. The success of this single almost overshadowed the rest of the singles released from the album ("Fría Como El Viento", "Culpable O No (Mienteme Como Siempre)", "Un Hombre Busca Una Mujer", "Esa Niña", "Por Favor Señora", "El Primero" and "Separados"). The titled was simply Busca Una Mujer since his name would complement the title (i.e. meaning Luis Miguel Busca Una Mujer).

The video for the single "La Incondicional" was directed by Pedro Torres, and was one of the first super-productions presented in Mexico. The story was about a man who serve for the Army in his country, and separates from the love of his life. The video was a little shocking for the fans because Luis Miguel's look at the time was a semi-long hair, and in the video he has with a military look with very short hair. He eventually regrew his hair for the video of his first single, "Fría Como El Viento". By the end of 1989, he cut his hair after the videoclip got heavy runtime in television and in preparation for his 20th birthday. On the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks Year-End Chart of 1989 the single "La Incondicional" appears at #3.
