Thalía is the eponymous debut solo album by Mexican singer Thalía, produced by Alfredo Diaz Ordaz and released in Mexico by Fonovisa Records in 1990.[1][2] The album consisted of 80's rock, disco, pop, and ballads. The singles "Un Pacto Entre Los 2" and "Saliva" were highly controversial due to their suggestive themes, but were nonetheless highly successful, and are now considered Thalía classics along with "Amarillo Azul" and "Pienso En Ti".[3]

The album was certified 2x Platinum in Mexico for shipments of 200,000.[4]

To celebrate Thalía's 25 anniversary as a solo artist, as for December 2014, this album is available in the digital platforms iTunes and Spotify.

Singles[edit]

  • Un Pacto Entre los Dos: Thalía's first single, the song was considered at that moment as something sadomasochistic, was also criticized for the sensual and provocative dress used by Thalía in the video and TV performances, but despite that, the criticism did not stop the song from being a success in Mexico.
  • Saliva: second single from the first album, the song was released in the year 1990, the song caused much controversy, and was even prohibited in some radio stations in Mexico.
  • Pienso en Tí: the third single of the debut album of the Mexican singer Thalía, the song was released to the Mexican radios in the year of 1991, this song was written by the composer Áureo Baqueiro. Thalia dedicated this song to her boyfriend at the moment, the producer Alfredo Diaz. It's the first ballad Thalia presents as a single and was a success, even though it does not have a music video of its own. The song reached position number four in Mexico City.[5]
  • Amarillo Azul: the fourth single from the debut album, the song was written by Luis Cabaña and Pablo Pinilla and was released in the year 1991. It obtained less criticism than its predecessor songs, and like Pienso en Tí, no music video was released.
