I admit that I’ve been harsh on Enrique Iglesias lately, due to his lukewarm songs “Tonight” and “Dirty Dancer”. But “Ayer” is much, much better.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have slight issues with this music video. He’s not really doing anything nor does it look like he’s actually singing, but hey, that’s what it’s been like for the past two music videos – at least this time he’s not surrounded by half-naked individuals of the female sex. (here’s a link to the video)
Those are my only complaints about “Ayer” though. As many people said on Youtube, it seems like he’s returning to his roots as an artist. I can’t comprehend the song on my own (Spanish 1 wasn’t that helpful in the long run) but even without utilizing a translator I’m able to discern that this song is coming from his heart, and not another part of his body. The music video enhances this effect as it focuses on him somewhat singing with the candles adding a nice visual background.
Overall, “Ayer” is a step in the right direction for Enrique Iglesias. I hope he continues producing this type of song as opposed to
trash his previous two singles – maybe then he’ll recapture his success from ten years ago.
What do you think of “Ayer”? Is he making progress? Or are you not impressed?
