Besame Mucho is the second Spanish song on Demi’s third album, Unbroken. The first was titled Rascacielos [or Skyscraper in English], and it was available as part of the international edition of Unbroken. However, Besame Mucho remained unreleased – until today. However, hearing the song and getting the vocal [and unhappy] reception to the single, it’s easy to see why the studio and Demi opted to keep the single from release for so long. They might have been working on changing it or editing it in some way, but the way the single is now, it seems extremely derivative of other, more popular singles.
Besame Mucho was written by three different songwriters, Dapo Torimiro, Priscilla Hamilton, and Demi. While the song was officially recorded during the studio sessions for the Unbroken album, sources claim that executives didn’t believe the song fit the vision of the rest of the album, thus sending it into the black hole where music goes to die. Clearly, they didn’t even do a good job of that, because everyone with a connection to the Internet can now listen to the song as they choose. Yes, it’s been three years since the song was recorded, but better late than never, right?
