Background[edit]

Ivy Queen in 2010

Ivy Queen began working on her sixth studio album in 2006.[1] On the album, entitled Sentimiento as a part of her evolution in reggaetón, she includes "solo turns", instead of duets by guest artist.[2] This includes "Pobre Corazón".[3] Others include "Manaña Al Despertar" by Baby Rasta and Noriega where the artist performed songs without vocals by Ivy Queen. She said she wanted to give a 180-degree turn to what people think of reggaetón.[2] She explained "Many think reggaetón is just nice rhythms to dance to. And they forget there are song-writers and composers, who, like everyone else, also suffer and aspire in love".[2] She wanted the album to be about that.[2] She said "Love is what makes us write things, what keeps us alive. If we did not have love, we would have nothing".[2] After the commercial success of the album, which was certified Platinum by the United States Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), a platinum edition and substantial live album was distributed by Univision and Machete in late-2007 and 2008 respectively.[4] Of the seven new tracks on the platinum edition was a remix of "Pobre Corazón" with Ivy Queen among others.

Composition and cover versions[edit]

"Pobre Corazón" was composed by Daniel Vazquez known by his stage name as Divino alongside Ivy Queen.[5][6] Production was handled by Marcos Sánchez while Queen served as executive producer.[6] Lyrically, the balad, touches familiar themes such as "devotion, heart-break, hope and reconciliation".[2][3] The song was later included on Divino's third studio album Por Expierencias Propias (2010) remixed into salsa.[7] A bachata version with bachata trio Marcy Place was also recorded.[8] It was covered in bachata by Dominican singer Leny on the compilation album Bachata #1's, Vol. 2 in 2008.[9] It originally appeared on his debut full-length solo studio album One (2008).[10]
