Ricky Martin Returns With World Music-Flavored Single “Adios” On September 23

Ricky Martin will release a new single called “Adios” on September 23. The tantalizing track was penned by Jesse Shatkin (he co-wrote Sia‘s “Chandelier”), Latin rapper Yotuel Romero and Japanese/Spanish flamenco virtuoso Antonio Rayo. That multi-cultural line-up is apparently reflected in the song’s world music-flavored sound.

“Adios” is the first single from Ricky’s 10th studio album, which is set for an early 2015 release. (I guess that means “Come With Me” and “Adrenalina” didn’t make the cut). “We chose [the song] because it represents who I am today,” the heartthrob explains. “The title is a reference to the opening of another cycle.” The 42-year-old’s last LP Musica + Alma + Sexo was released in 2011.
