Latin Superstar Juanes Performs ‘Your Song’

February 13, 2013 9:01 am

Latin superstar Juanes stopped by the “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” studios Wednesday to give an encore performance of Elton John‘s classic “Your Song“, chat about expanding his “Loud & Unplugged” tour, and reveal where his newest single “Cumbia Sexy” came from.

International fans have come to love his Spanish lyrics, but can we expect an all English album? “I guess now I can be more fluid in English. I understand more the language, and it’s easier for me. Not to think too much. It’s easier, because when I came to Los Angeles back in 1987 I didn’t speak a word. It was a long journey for me to learn the language.”

In Juanes’ recent book “Chasing The Sun” the superstar opens up about struggling to maintain the balance between family and career. Juanes recalls “I was working so hard. Too much. I just lost the balance. I just went crazy and started to hate myself and I couldn’t even listen to my music.” He continues, “I started my solo career in ’99 in Los Angeles and until 2010 I didn’t stop. So my last album, not this one but the last one, was not my best record. I was so tired.”
