Archie Wants To Record Spanish Language Album

david archuleta recording spanish album

Since David Archuleta's second album The Other Side of Down comes out today, the Idol alum dishes about what's next for him and how he's embracing his Latinoliciousness by possibly recording an album in Spanish.

He said:

That [recording a Spanish-language album] is something that I would love to do. I mentioned it to my label and they’re excited about it. Half of my family is Hispanic. I want to show them my gratitude. I don’t speak as much Spanish as I would like to. I still talk to my grandpa in Spanish. I want to immerse myself in that culture. One of the first songs I ever learned was a Selena song called “Como La Flor.” I grew up listening to and loving Selena's music. We always had her playing. My mom is a huge fan of Gloria Estefan. I love La India. There are also some songs I like from Christian Castro, Luis Miguel and Luis Fonsi.

Love it, bb. Ain't no shame in trying something new!

    Perez, I don´t think David is exactly trying something NEW, since he already sang in Spanish for several occasions so far: He sang “Contigo En La Distancia” at ALMA Awards 2009 (ABC) where he also was the recipient of the “Year In Music’s Rising Male Star” Award. His performance was magnificent and deserved lots & lots of praises.
    Then he was invited and recorded “Somos El Mundo” along with other Hispanic Stars (like Shakira, Luis Fonsi, Thalia, Gloria Estefan, Pee Wee, John Secada, Luis Miguel, Juanes, Ricky Martin etc) to benefit victims of the Haitian earthquake. Again he was highly praised, not only by the fans but also by several of the other artists involved. He was also invited to do a tribute to Selena Quintanilla at 30th Annual Tejano Music Awards on July, singing “No Me Queda Más” and also “Como La Flor” (this one dueting with Pete Astudillo, one of the authors of the song). He recorded an old Spanish Christmas Carol called “Riu Riu Chiu” on his second record (The Other Side Of Down is his THIRD studio record, not the second), “Christmas From The Heart” and he performed the song during all of the shows from the “Christmas…” Tour which happened during Nov/Dec last year. He also sang “Como La Flor” several times during his previous tour.

    And Babycakes, you are undoubtedly tone-deaf!!
