Catarsis (English: Catharsis) is the fourth studio album by Spanish-born Mexican singer Belinda, released on July 2, 2013 through Capitol Latin.[2]



In October 2011, Belinda moved to Miami, Florida to begin the process of recording the album.[3][4] She created a recording studio at home which gave her the flexibility that she had not experienced before making an album. This allowed her to work at her own pace with new composers and work both lyrically and vocally. Belinda co-wrote each of the songs on the album.[3]

Belinda worked with a close-knit group of award-winning producers and songwriters such as Victor "El Nasi", Joan Ortiz, Jorge Villamizar, Andres Castro, Lavi Beats/ Lavi Hoss and Vein.[3] The album shows a more dance/pop sound, combined with an urban flavor and lyrics with popular appeal.[3]


She performed "En El Amor Hay Que Perdonar" on 2012 Premios Juventud,[5] Kids' Choice Awards Mexico 2012,[6] Despierta América, Hoy, and La Voz... México; "Te Voy A Esperar" at the Premios Ondas 2012 with Juan Magán;[7] and "En La Obscuridad" at the Premios Telehit 2012, Tour Positivo and Mexico Sueña.[8] She has made many interviews around Europe, Latin America and United States to promote the album, she also has been on a promo tour across United States, Spain and Mexico. She was again on Hoy on March 27, 2013.

The video was uploaded to Belinda's official VEVO channel on August 17, 2012. The single debuted at number seven and topped the Mexican Single Charts.[2]
  • "En la Obscuridad" was announced as the second single by Belinda via her Twitter account; it was released to Mexican radio on November 9, 2012.[11] The music video was filmed over two days in December 2012 at the National Art Museum (next to the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City) and at Churubusco Studios, where she used a 360 degree platform. The music video premiered on Belinda's official VEVO account on February 22, 2013.
