This Latin pop vet makes every track sound smooth

Miguel had already released 10 albums by the time he got to 1996’s Nada Es Igual, and that experience translates to a smoothness that coats every track here. Opener “Si Te Vas” finds him nearly rapping over nimble bass and quick drums, while “Como Es Posible Que a Mi Lado” shows that he’s just as comfortable tackling four-on-the-floor house. Yet it wouldn’t be a Miguel album without some slow jams, and where “Abrázame" rings with tearful violin, the title track explodes with big, emotional drums.
