You know, I was all but ready to pack up 2020’s bags and have this vicious bitch sashay away, but as we approach the fourth quarter of this year, she may not be a total wash after all.

Latin-pop icon Gloria Estefan announced that she is gearing up to release her 14th album entitled Brazil305, which will feature 11 re-recorded remixes of her hits and four new cuts.

Every song on the album was recorded with Brazilian producers and musicians, hence the album’s title.

“I really wanted [the album to] be a symbol of unity,” the 62-year-old tells the Miami Herald. “It celebrates our common roots in music between Cuba and Brazil — which is African, and, quite honestly, there is African roots in everything because Africa was where everything started, where life started, where we all came from, ultimately.” She finds the concept particularly timely for 2020. “I thought it was important for me to put out that message of hope and love out there, to be a respite in some way because that is what music should be.”

Some of the hits that have been recreated with a little Brazilian flavor are “Conga” (now “Samba”), “Cuts Both Ways,” “Don’t Wanna Lose You,” “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “Mi Tierra” and “Get On Your Feet.” New songs include the recently-released “Cuando Hay Amor.”
