Ricky Martin - Play EP + General Discussion

  1. By the way, this song is HUGE in South America. It's pretty much the song of the summer in the southern hemisphere minus Australia/NZ obviously, but maybe Delta can change that.

  2. The music video is nicely inclusive.
  3. King of counting in Spanish, doing passitos and uniting the southern hemisphere through tropical song.

  4. Aw, everyone got a girl except Ricky. I feel bad for him.
  5. I have to break it to you - I don't think Ricardo wanted a girl. All those lingering shots of buff male models are implied implicit freely available buss fare for the King of Un Dos Tres.

  6. Yes, that's what I said. Only with sarcasm.

    How does everyone feel about Ricky's new single with Wisin & Yandel?

    It's an enjoyable bop but I'm not sure it matches Vente Pa' Ca. It's doing pretty well in Spanish-speaking countries, though.

    Gay Times featured him on the cover of their current issue (billing the feature as an European LGBT exclusive) and had a whole piece focusing on his American Crime Story appearance and Fiebre, but for some reason all the photos seem to be taken from the shoot for his 2015 album A Quien Quiera Escuchar.

    Then Attitude also featured him on their cover... in the same month, talking about the same things, with new photos. (It's technically their May issue but it came out a couple of weeks ago because that's how dates work, apparently.)

  8. I'm not very keen on the single, but what really bothers me about it is that in the video he's still including those brief moments of faux heterosexuality like almost kissing a female dancer and stuff. Meh.

    I really liked Ricky portraying a gay character on American Crime Story. That was nice for a change. But I highly doubt he'll ever gay it up like that when it comes to his music career. A bit of a shame, really.

    Around the time of Frío he was still giving us quotes like
    but I would have hoped he'd moved on from that.

    I wonder if there's going to be a serious attempt to push Fiebre in the UK or if the sudden press stuff is really just for American Crime Story. I suspect it's the latter.

  10. You'll all be interested to know that I find Ricky Martin very handsome.
  11. Ricky Martin's PR Team is going to be black-balled by the HQs of Gay Times and Attitude... what a silly thing to do (and who else do they represent?)

    It seems like a particularly silly thing to do.

    Both magazines have multiple covers this month, though. Gay Times has Gus Kenworthy and Ricky (and is using Gus for the cover of the digital edition) and Attitude has Kylie and Ricky (and is using Ricky for the cover of the digital edition).

    The Attitude feature looks and feels like a proper, authorised interview, whereas the whole Gay Times feature feels slightly off because of the three-year-old photos. I mean, some of the photos are literally the front and back covers of A Quien Quiera Escuchar (or very close to them):
