Ricky Martin Joined By Joss Stone On New Single “The Best Thing About Me Is You”

Tomorrow singer/author Ricky Martin will do his first interview since coming out as a gay man on The Oprah Winfrey Show. But ahead of that, his new bluesy single “The Best Thing About Me Is You” has hit the Internet. What a coincidence! Hear it below. Ricky has clearly mellowed since his “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and “Shake Your Bon-Bon” days. Chalk it up to fatherhood?

Joss Stone – The Best Thing About Me Is You” dl=”0″] This isn’t anything groundbreaking from the Latin heartthrob. More like nice dinner party music. Still, the addition of Joss Stone’s warm vocals here gives the song a nice touch. Maybe the Rickster’s got more exciting fare in the pipeline?

Like Enrique Iglesias earlier this year, Martin is due to release a bilingual album in early 2011. “The Best Thing About Me Is You” is the first single off the upcoming set, and a Spanish version of the tune featuring Natalia Jiminez is also being offered.

What do you think of Ricky’s latest single?
