This phonogram, launched in Cuba under the EGREM label and produced by Juan Manuel Ceruto- has other luxury guests, including Alexander Abreu and Habana de Primera,
It excels the song "El Secreto", in which unite their voices Isaac Delgado, Alexander Abreu, Mandy Cantero (singer from Juan Formell y Los Van Van) and Emilio Frías, accompanied by the La Verdad and Osaín del Monte.
