Ever since the mainstream acceptance of Latin pop in the late '90s, it's become fairly common for artists who first came to prominence singing in Spanish to put out English-language albums, but MI REFLEJO is one of the few examples of the opposite process. Teen pop goddess Christina Aguilera, who comes from Ecuadorian stock, uses this album as an opportunity to pay homage to her roots. Sure, it doesn't hurt that MI REFLEJO will endear her to a whole new audience, but the singer has professed a desire to do something like this that dates back to her pre-icon days.
A few of the tunes here are simply versions of her previous hits--including the breakthrough smash "Genie in a Bottle"--with Spanish lyrics. Most of the album, however, features new songs chosen specifically for this project and recorded with a Latin pop approach in mind. Needless to say, Ricky Martin-loving Latin pop enthusiasts will find as much to enjoy here as diehard Aguilera fans.
