Christina Aguilera calls on the acting skills she so expertly honed making critically acclaimed (by me) blockbuster Burlesque in Alejandro Fernandez‘s melodramatic “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti” video. The emotion-charged visual plays like a glamorous telenovela, which is not surprising given that the towering ballad serves as the theme song of Mexican soap opera La Tempestad. Curtains billow, staircases are climbed and chests heave. Alejandro is a dark and brooding protagonist but, let’s face it, all eyes are on Xtina.
And she delivers blonde bombshell realness in spades. Whether sizzling in a black bra and skirt combination or reclining — Mariah Carey style — on a chaise lounge, the top-heavy diva is absolutely riveting. Christina’s stunning curves steal the show and she clearly relishes her role as a steamy seductress. “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti” is turning out to be a smart move for the Lotus legend. It jumped straight to number one on Mexican iTunes and was certified platinum in just 17 days. Perhaps it’s time to follow up 2000′s brilliant Mi Reflejo with another Spanish album?
