Since 2008, Freddy Acosta worked in search of his space in merengue as a soloist. Colombia is one of the countries that opened its the doors to him and he was surprised by the success of the merengue version of “Y si te quedas, qué?”, a song that he recorded in 2012, but that is now in the first places of the tropical stations in this country.
The song, written by Colombian singer-songwriter Santiago Cruz, is a version where the quality of the arrangements and performance predominate something that, according to Freddy, was the reason why, after all these years, the song made a comeback.
Acosta, who is working on this new stage of his career with the company VMP Productions chaired by Melvin Rodríguez, comes to the country to promote his new album “Freddy Acosta a tiempo”, which is composed of eight songs: one of them, “El Canario”, is a merengue with José Alberto, “Cuando te veo” written by him and “Bailando el carnaval”, a song that gave him access to the most important carnival festivals in Colombia.
“The gentleman of merengue”, as he was also nicknamed in Colombia, said he is working on a song where several national and international artists will participate, which will soon be released.
