Hear Ricky Martin , Carla Morrison ’s Yearning Ballad ‘Recuerdos’

Pausa follows Grammy-winning 2015 album A Quien Quiera Escuchar

Pausa, which also features Residente, Bad Bunny, and Pedro Capó.The two singers have complementary vocal styles: Morrison’s is light and lilting, while Martin prefers a creamier, more forceful approach. Morrison kicks things off (“I have you, I confess/Every emotion, I understand it”), then Martin turns up the heat (“I got lost in your body/Every secret corner”). The beat stays unwaveringly skeletal as the vocal fireworks get increasingly ornate. The whole thing seems expertly designed for a performance at a future awards show, probably with a full choir — a cavernous space where onstage drama can heighten the emotion of the lyrics.
