"Desde Esa Noche" (English: "Since That Night") is a song recorded by Mexican singer Thalía, featuring Colombian singer Maluma, for her thirteenth studio album, Latina (2016). The song was released as the album's first single on January 29, 2016 through Sony Music Latin.[1] The song was written and produced by Sergio George with María Adelaida Agudelo, Pablo Uribe, Mauricio Rengifo and Maluma. "Desde Esa Noche" is a Latin pop and reggaeton song, with banda and norteño influences, as well as mariachi horns and cumbian accordion. It has received mostly positive reviews and has become a commercial success all over Latin America and the United States, where it peaked at number 16 on the Hot Latin Songs chart and number 4 on the Latin Pop Songs chart, published by Billboard.

Background and release[edit]

On December 16, 2015, Thalía posted on her Instagram account a picture with record producer Sergio George, with the caption: "R u ready for the hit of the year?!?!."[2] Later, on January 4, 2016, she posted another picture with him, explaining: "Trying to decide on the percussion rhythm of a song. Those moments in the studio, when one is producing a new song, discussing ideas and mixing musical styles are the ones we singers love!."[2] On January 25, 2016, Thalia started to tease a new single through her social media, claiming that she would release new music "soon".[2] She kept posting the lyrics to the single throughout the week,[2] until it was released on January 29, 2016.[1]

In an interview with Billboard, Thalía commented about the song: "From the first moment I heard the song I said, 'This is a hit.' When Sergio and I worked on the arrangement, I wanted to include Mexican trumpets and he wanted the song to have a reggaeton base. Then I felt I needed an accomplice, someone to sing it to me and of course have me responding to him. Hence the idea to have Maluma came about."[3]

Composition[edit]

"Desde Esa Noche" was written by María Adelaida Agudelo, Pablo Uribe, Mauricio Rengifo, Sergio George and Maluma, and was produced by George and co-produced by Armando Ávila.[4] It is a Latin pop and reggaeton song,[5][6] with "mariachi horns and cumbian accordion,"[7] as well as "banda/norteño flourishes."[8] Its instrumentation consists in accordion, horns, trumpets and guitars.[4] Lyrically, the song talks about a sensual encounter between two people that could transform in something else, with the singers trading lines, such as: "Desde esa noche solo pienso en ti" ("From that night I only think about you") and "Me muero por tenerte aquí, pero me da miedo enamorarme de ti" ("I'm dying to have you here, but I'm scared of falling in love with you").[6]

Reception[edit]

Critical[edit]

Nichole Fratangelo of Latina praised the track, writing that "the song shows off both of the singers' killer voices and has a beat thats enough to get anyone up and out of their chair."[9] Thom Jurek of AllMusic picked it as one of the album's highlights, and noted that "the skittering beats and pulsing bassline are exhortations to the dancefloor."[7] Cosmopolitan en Español Staff praised the pairing, noting that they enjoyed the collaboration.[1] Billboard Staff analyzed that "[t]hroughout the song, Thalía’s flirtatiousness intertwines with Maluma’s expressiveness over reggaeton rhythms."[8] The staff from the website FMBox commented that "creative and bold, Thalia surprises us with an unexpected jewel that will serve as an introduction to her upcoming album that is guaranteed to make everyone dance".[10] David Lopez from Miusyk wrote that "Thalía wagers creativity and risk. It's a milestone for an artist who has nothing left to prove to make this option."[11]
