"I Wish You" is the third single released by Gloria Estefan from her tenth studio album Unwrapped. In 2003, promotional CD singles were sent to radio stations in the U.S. In 2004, the song was released as a CD single in Europe.

Meaning[edit]

Estefan said, "'I Wish You' is a power-ballad that shoots directly for the heart, pulling no punches. Telling someone that you love them, and wish them the best, even when they have wronged you, is often harder than when they have not. The concept, underscored beautifully, with sublime production, is a wistful goodbye that manages to empower the person who is being hurt the most."[1]
