El Sexto Sentido (English: The Sixth Sense) is the ninth studio album by Mexican singer Thalía. It was released by EMI Music on 19 July 2005. The most successful singles of the album were "Amar sin ser amada", "Un alma sentenciada" and "Seducción".

On February 14, 2006 the album was re-released under the name El Sexto Sentido Re+Loaded in Mexico (May 29 in Spain, June 6 in the US).


El Sexto Sentido is mostly sung in Spanish, except for three songs in English at the end of the disc. The album contains some ballads (as "Un alma sentenciada" or "Olvídame"), pop songs (like "Amar sin ser amada", and "Un sueño para dos") and Latin dance songs (like "Seducción" and "No me voy a quebrar"). She also covered "Amor Prohibido", which belongs to the fellow Latina Selena, Thalía sang the song Live on Selena ¡VIVE! in 2005 and "24,000 Besos", an 1960s Italian hit by Adriano Celentano. On the other hand, El sexto sentido Re+Loaded (a special version of this album) included the bachata-ballad styled song "No, no, no" featuring Anthony Romeo Santos.

El Sexto Sentido brings the songwriting and production of the well-known composer Estéfano. The album has also been nominated in both 2005 and 2006 Latin Billboard Awards and Latin Grammy.[3] This album was a financial success internationally.
