Rock Band introduces the first Spanish-language tunes to its line-up next week, with six hits from Latin music superstar Juanes and an additional track shipping on disc with Rock Band 3.
With more than 12 million albums sold worldwide, a Grammy and 17 Latin Grammy awards under his belt, you don't have to understand Spanish to know that Juanes is one talented and popular performer. With numbers like that, it's no wonder Harmonix is featuring his music to introduce Spanish-language tracks to Rock Band.
Six Juanes tunes will hit the Rock Band music store next week, including his latest single "Yerbatero".
Along with the downloadable content release, Juanes' smash hit "Me Enamora" is shipping on the disc with Rock Band 3.
While I'm not big on Latin music, I've listened to several Juanes tracks this afternoon, and I have to say their pretty damn catchy, especially "Me Enamora", which opens with a funky little riff that reminds me of '70s rock. I could think of worse ways to attempt to learn Spanish.
Here's the track listing for next week's release:
Available on Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation 3 system (July 27):
• Juanes – "A Dios le Pido" • Juanes – "Fíjate Bien" • Juanes – "Gotas de Agua Dulce" • Juanes – "La Camisa Negra" • Juanes – "Mala Gente" • Juanes – "Yerbatero"
