"Esta Soledad" ("This loneliness") is a Latin pop song written by Kany García for her first studio album Cualquier Día. It was released as the album's fourth single in May 2008. The song is used as the theme song for the Mexican telenovela, Todo por Amor.[1] The song was performed live at the 2008 Latin Grammy Awards. In 2012, Kany re-recorded "Esta Soledad" and made a duet with Dani Martin as part of her third album "Kany Garcia".

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Esta Soledad" was shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina.[2] The video starts off with Kany standing in front of a bench while people on the back, in slow motion and fast forward walk. Scenes show Kany playing the guitar in her bed. Other shows Kany and her love interest in a park recording with a home camera.
Later, Kany is seen in a bar. Kany is seen standing in the middle of flying birds, and the streets while cars pass. The video ends with Kany staring at the camera with her hair in rewind motion, falling back down to her face.

The music video was filmed in various natural settings of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and captures, with novel special effects, the human and melancholy atmosphere of Kany.[3] The video was directed by Claudio Diavela who has worked with international artists like Alejandro Fernández, Chayanne, and Diego Torres.
