Gran City Pop is the ninth studio album by Mexican singer Paulina Rubio released by Universal Music Group on June 23, 2009. The album expanded the Rubio's stylistic palette by combining elements of genres such as ranchera, hip-hop, eurodisco or arena rock, and she became more involved in songwriting and creative elaboration, extracting influences from various dance-pop-based genres including electropop, synth-pop and eighties British pop.

In 2008, Rubio began working again with Argentinian music producer Cachorro López, who served as the executive producer of her previous album Ananda (2006). The two collaborated with various producers and writers on the album, including Lester Méndez, Mario Domm, Noel Schajris, Gianmarco and Fernando Osorio. And She returns to collaborate with Colombian songwriter Estéfano after six years, and other songwriters and producers with whom she previously collaborated such as Coti, Chris Rodriguez and Fernando Montesinos.

Gran City Pop received acclaimed reviews from music critics, many of whom complimented it as a return fresh sounds, and received a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album. In Mexico, Gran City Pop peaked at number two on the Mexican Albums Chart, and was certified gold by the Asociación Mexicana de Productores de Fonogramas y Videogramas (AMPROFON). In the United States, the album debuted at number forty four on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of over 9,400 copies, while it debuted at number two on the Top Latin Albums chart and number one on the Latin Pop Albums chart. Additionally, it sold 100,000 copies in United States and Puerto Rico, and manage to sell 300,000 copies worldwide.

Three singles were released from Gran City Pop. The lead single, "Causa Y Efecto", peaked at number one in the United States Latin charts, Mexico general chart and Spain airplay chart. Subsequent single "Ni Rosas Ni Juguetes" also was a success in Latin America, and "Algo De Ti" generally underperformed on the charts, but the music video was a hit in the television. To further promote the album, Rubio embarked on the Gran City Pop Tour in 2009.

Background and production[edit]

Following take a sabbatical year, Rubio released her eighth studio album, Ananda, in September 2006. Slated to be released as Rubio's comeback album, Ananda was certified twice times platinum in the United States after it atop at number one on the Billboard Top Latin Albums. In Spain, the album peaked at number two on the Spanish Albums Chart and was eventually certified double platinum, becoming her second best-selling album in that territory, after Paulina (2000). Critical reception towards Ananda was favourable, many critics felt it a transition to pop-rock sound, acknowledging Rubio's mature perceptions.

In November 2007, Universal Music announced Rubio's "started recording her next album in her [home]studio in Miami (Florida) which she plans to release in the fall of 2008"[1] She had recently finished her Amor Luz y Sonido tour, so she had already written some songs. During American television and radio host Larry King's 75th birthday charity party, Rubio announced: "I've been recording with Estéfano, Cachorro López for many months ... They are my songs and Coti's, it's rock & roll, pop music, rancheras and those songs that touch your heart at a time when I am very much in love, very full, trying to put down roots."[2] Until then, the production had features compositions by Estéfano, Los Rabanes, Jeremías, Noel Schajris, Gian Marco Zignago, Lester Méndez, and Mario Domm. Paulina prepared her album with her own songs with the help of Coti, who had a big influence in the writing of the album. Speaking to a Mexican radio program, she said that the new material presented many changes. She explained: "[...] at the same time I remain very loyal to my music; my rancheras, boleros, and simple rhythms like the songs we used to listen to as children". She also added: "This new production will have songs by Mario Domm, the leader of Camila, and Estéfano, but there are some songs of mine with Coti; it's an album to get out the child within us".

On December 8, 2008, Rubio performed at the opening of Teleton México to raise funds for the benefit of the Teleton Centers for Children with Different Abilities. She sing a pop-rock version of "Solo Le Pido A Dios", originally performed by Argentine folk rock musician León Gieco.[3] At that time, Universal Music was already preparing the release of the first single, but it was delayed by Rubio's decision because "[I] thought I had finished the album and a person I love very much told me that it was not finished." Rubio explained "the album improved a lot from June to December [2008]. I wrote more songs and when I had 34 love letters, because that's what I call them [the songs], I chose 10 again and went back to redoing verses."[4]

Since Rubio was during those months traveling around the world, especially going to and from Miami, Mexico and Madrid, most of the songs he wrote while giving concerts. She was very inspired by these three cities during the songwriting process.[5]

Concept and music[edit]

"Gran City Pop is a city where people speak Spanglish, where freedom reigns and where love prospers and there is no violence, [...] The city itself was inspired by several places, including Mexico, which is my homeland; Madrid, Spain; and Miami in the U.S.[6]

— Paulina Rubio talking about "Gran City Pop"

The album was formed around the conceptual city of "Gran City Pop", created by Rubio and represented through the album's accompanying marketing and music videos. It is an utopic and "enormous city" where Rubio explore through "one vision, some of the life and musical experiences lived during the last years in many cities of the world."[7] She was inspired by the cities of Mexico City, Miami and Madrid for the fictional city name, same cities were the albums was recording.

Gran City Pop is a mix of places, cultures and desires. Rubio describes it as a city "very earthy and very organic where everything is an amalgam; a mixture that allows to unite instead of divide", where borders do not exist;[8] is a place "where people speak Spanglish, where freedom reigns and where love prospers and there is no violence". In Gran City Pop, human rights are the fundamental pillar of the social system. There is no hate, no racism, no homophobia. Same-sex marriage is considered to be a human right.[6] Its inhabitants "enjoy literature, music, gastronomy, friendship, family, sunsets and full moons."[9]

In the album's booklet, journalist and writer Boris Izaguirre details how Rubio returns stepping "on the asphalt" of Gran City Pop. He describes her as a "rock soul" who manages to "unite all its bridges, combine its colors and savor its mixes "with the city to which he returns once more. Izaguirre makes the city of Gran City Pop visible with "skyscrapers of multiple colors", some of its streets are called México, Madrid, Miami, Mar y Mirar, which contain a "show of emotions, lights, dreams and hopes", where a mixture of places such as Maya, Hollywood, Bollywood, New York, London, Buenos Aires and Paris. He also cites the cultural influence of Julio Cortázar, Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol, and Frida Kahlo on the Gran City Pop.[10]

The album highlights to "upbeat sound".[5] with Rubio sounding "like she's having a blast on every song, even the ones that are about the pitfalls of love."[11] She revealed that the songs "reflect the moment she is living and her growth as a person."[12] Like her previous records, contains many different genres of music. Gran City Pop is a "eclectic" album, including pop rock, dance-pop, electropop and Latin pop-styles. Much of the album discusses principle of karma, spirituality, fantasy, magic and illusion, all from the perspective of love.[13] The second track "La Danza del Escorpión" was described as a "pungent club anthem"[14] that sticks to distinctives Rubio's Latin guitar riffs. Lyrically it is about a "scorned love" where Rubio alludes to the popular legend of the scorpion and the fire that, when stung with its own sting, ends up poisoning itself.

Artwork[edit]

For the album illustration, Rubio wears an "exotic" purple sequinned mini-dress with a sweetheart neckline, from the Armand Basi One Spring-Summer 2009 line. She completes her outfit with gold platform shoes with fringed bracelet signed by Christian Louboutin; and fingerless gloves.[15] In it, she pretends to be singing, while clutching a silver microphone with a base. Rubio has his eyes closed with an expression of peace and happiness, while covering his half face with a purple "futuristic" face shield style cap. Behind her, a blue daytime sky and visible clouds; buildings; and the sea, reflecting the blue sky are shown. This is a shot of the city of Miami Beach, Florida, one of the cities inspired by "Gran City Pop". The photo sessions were done by Gustavo López Mañas, who worked with the singer for the first time.[16] He took the concept of Rubio's album and managed to manifest his own stamp, inspired by comic books.[17][18]

Gran City Pop received generally positive reviews from music critics. Phil Freeman from AllMusic praised Rubio's choice of collaborators and producers, and appreciated the album's cohesion "almost miraculously" despite "style-hopping" of each song "from electro to pop/rock to indefinable blends of whatever works." He also complimented Rubio's "ability to create consistent sound, and commented "she's a pure pop artist, throwing anything and everything at the wall with no goal beyond a hooky melody, and Gran City Pop has plenty of them."[11] Rachel Devitt from Rhapsody gave the album a positive review and found it to be an "a potent reminder of why she is such a mega-star in the Latin pop world", adding that "Rubio's flexible voice and diva charisma allow her to carry off each style with attitude and flair."[31]

Jesús Rodríguez de El País considers Gran City Pop as a "party and romance tailor's drawer; pop rhythms, Latin airs, rock guitars, rancheras and tequila, melodic song and disco sound packaged under the concept of the three cities that have marked her life: Mexico City, Madrid and Miami. "[32] Dan Kimpel from Broadcast Music, Inc. praised the sound of the album and said that "the sonic scope of the songs and the production is vast and varied". He also highlighted Rubio's versatility as a songwriter and singer.[29] David Dorantes from Houston Chronicle also praised the album's production, but felt that it did not contribute anything new and stated that "advancing along paths of fusion already well explored, it reflects a certain turn in his career, with more elaborate mixes than in previous albums."[33] Music journalist Carlos Reyes was a bit more severe in his review from the Club Fonograma music blog, considering "[Gran City Pop] not a very enchanting city", although like most critics, he praised the album production and ended by saying that ay least "[Gran City Pop] got mayor (Rubio) with plenty of personality to win the popular vote."[30]
