"Mended" - May 21, 2002
Mended is the sixth overall solo studio album and second English studio album by American Latin pop singer-songwriter Marc Anthony, released on May 21, 2002 by Columbia Records and Sony Discos. It was re-released with two bonus tracks in 2003 as Mended: Bonus Tracks.
After going through several release date changes, Marc Anthony released his second English studio album, Mended in mid-2002, shortly after issuing Libre. Mended delivers more of Anthony’s passionate, urgent songs of love and betrayal, destined for mass consumption. The album features the hit singles “I’ve Got You”, the Spanish version “Te Tengo Aqui”, “Love Won’t Get Any Better,” as well as the well-known single “Tragedy.” Bruce Springsteen composed a song, “I’ll Stand By You Always”, for Marc Anthony but the song was omitted from the album for unknown reasons.
The album was certified Platinum by the CRIA in October 2002 (100,000 units) and the single “I’ve Got You” was featured on the 2002 compilation album Now That’s What I Call Music! 10.
