The idea of joining the talents of three friends was suggested by themselves and the recording suggested them to make a "Primera Fila" concept recording with hits from each one. So nine songs are from solo hits from Sasha Sokol ("Serás el Aire", "No Me Extraña Nada", "Rueda Mi Mente"), Benny Ibarra ("Sin Ti", "Cielo", "Tonto Corazon") and Erik Rubin ("Dame Amor", "Cuando Mueres por Alguien", "Tu Voz"). They added two new songs, first single "Cada Beso" and "Sólo Tú", and two versions of "Como Hemos Cambiado" and "El Amor Después del Amor".
