Only A Woman
Label: Universal Music Group International
Enrique has never been the strongest singer, but he knows how to play up his considerable other skills. His subtly titled 10th album, thus, booms and purrs with club-drunk, liquor-doused odes to beautiful people and sexy ways of interacting with them. Vocally, he sticks to robo-voiced dance-pop (see the literally monotone but hot "I'm a Freak" hook) or dramatic ballad style. But he shifts into samba-tinged Cataracs cuts, flamenco-hued bachata ("Loco") and martial slow jams ("Me Cuesta Tanto Olvidarte"), proving even the most explicit concepts can provide versatile, wide-ranging fun.
