Vicente Fernandez’s last concert ever was in September 2016 at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico. More than 80 million people bid farewell to “El Rey de la Musica Ranchera,” singing along to 50-plus his greatest hits.
Although his retirement from the stage was a sad moment for fans, Fernandez promised to continue making music so we would never forget him. Nearly two years later, Chente has kept his word, and he’s back with a new project.
Más Romántico Que Nunca (More Romantic Than Ever), released Friday (Aug. 10) through Sony Music, is home to 12 new romantic songs -- nine boleros and three rancheras -- that will restore your faith in love.
“The 12 songs were made to serenade your girlfriend or mother and are very beautiful songs that don’t talk about sex or anything degrading,” Fernandez said in a video on his YouTube channel. He also expressed his excitement on Instagram: “I’m very happy today because I finally premiered my album.”
With this new production, which also includes nine different music videos filmed in his Los Tres Potrillos ranch, the 78-year-old Mexican singer pays homage to his friend and musical director Pedro Ramirez, who recently died.
