"Entrégate" (English: "Surrender to Me") is a pop song written, produced and arranged by Juan Carlos Calderón, and performed by Mexican singer Luis Miguel. It was released as the second single from his Grammy Award nominated studio album 20 Años (1990), and became his fifth number-one single in the Billboard Top Latin Songs chart.[2] The parent album became commercially successful, with sales records throughout Latin America, with six of its singles entered the charts in Mexico simultaneously. After its release, Miguel was recognized as the leading male vocalist in Latin America.[3]

An English-language version of the song, titled "Before the Dawn" was recorded, but as another track from the album 20 Años "Somebody in Your Life" penned by Diane Warren and originally performed by Peabo Bryson on his album Quiet Storm (1986), was released in the United Kingdom with lukewarm results, Miguel decided not to record English versions of his songs again.[4] A bootleg recording can be found in the video-sharing website YouTube, along "Fría Como el Viento".[5]

"Entrégate" was included in the track list for his 20 Años Tour in 1990, in a medley along "Yo Que No Vivo Sin Tí", "Culpable o No (Miénteme Como Siempre)", "Más Allá de Todo", "Fría Como el Viento", "Tengo Todo Excepto a Tí" and "La Incondicional" during his live performances in the National Auditorium in Mexico City. This performance was released on his album El Concierto (1995).[6] In 2005, the song was included on the compilation album Grandes Éxitos.[7]

Chart performance[edit]

The song debuted in the Billboard Top Latin Songs chart (formerly Hot Latin Tracks) at number 28 in the week of September 22, 1990, climbing to the top ten four weeks later,[8][9] peaking at number-one on November 24, 1990, holding this position for one week,[10] replacing "Completamente Enamorados" by Chayanne and being replaced by Lourdes Robles with "Abrázame Fuerte". The song became Miguel's fifth single to peak at the top in this chart, following "Ahora Te Puedes Marchar" (1987), "La Incondicional" and "Fría Como el Viento" (both 1989) and his preceding single "Tengo Todo Excepto a Ti".[2] The song also became a success in Ecuador and Mexico where it peaked at number-one.[11][12] "Entrégate" has been covered by several performers, including César Flores, Grupo Villanhos, K-Paz de la Sierra, The Latin Stars Orchestra, Gerardo López and Los Students.[13]
