Alejandro Fernandez "CONFIDENCIAS" Debuts At No1 On Billboard's Latin Album Chart & No19 On Billboard's Top 200 Albums!


Los Angeles, CA (Top40 Charts / Universal Music Latina) Alejandro Fernandez, Latin Grammy winner and multiplatinum selling artist re-wrote history once again debuting #1 in the United States and Puerto Rico with CONFIDENCIAS , becoming his highest selling debut ever. The album also debuted TOP 20 on Billboard's Top 200 .

CONFIDENCIAS was released on August 27th shooting up to #1 on iTunes in 19 countries.
CONFIDENCIAS was produced by the late Phil Ramone and was his last production.

The album gathers classic tunes from Latin America and Spain with new arrangements by Ramone, powerfully performed by Fernandez. The first single and video from the album, Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti , features Christina Aguilera and is the theme song to Univision's new prime time soap, La Tempestad. The video has racked up more than 3M views the weekend of its release and the single has gone #1 in 17 countries.

Alejandro brings two worlds together on " Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" on which he sings in Spanish, while Rod Stewart sings in English. For the first time in more than 20 years, Alejandro went into the studio to record with his father, Vicente Fernandez . Their version of " Me olvide de vivir" is an emotional standout on the album.

When Fernandez and Ramone recorded CONFIDENCIAS , it was Ramone's idea to assemble a big band to get "the swing," and to have Alejandro record live with the orchestra, which is unusual for the talented singer. "Phil asked me to come in to the studio, from the beginning, to meet the musicians and watch them record," says Fernandez. "He was very talented, sensible, perfectionist... a true genius. It was an honor to have worked with such an endearing person."

During the recording, Ramone said "These songs are some of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, and he is one of the great artists of all time. We really enjoy each other's company and the musicians love him, it was quite an adventure."
