The album’s first single, “Vivir Mi Vida” (Live My Life), is a worldwide anthem that’s spent 18 consecutive weeks at the top of Billboard’s “Hot Latin Songs” chart, an all-time record for a salsa track.
The overwhelming success of 3.0 and “Vivir Mi Vida” make it clear that when tropical music and supreme talent meet, one can still go very, very far.
Almost a decade had passed since Marc Anthony last released a salsa album. However, the fearless Marc Anthony returned to the recording studios to craft an album that proudly shares innovative salsa music with a new generation of fans. The result is 3.0, his third collaboration with the tropical-music maestro Sergio George on an album of new material which includes 10 tracks.
Marc Anthony is set to launch his “Vivir Mi Vida” tour on August 6, a journey that will take him to 15 countries. He has already thrilled us this year with two monumental performances in Mexico, playing before a crowd of 125,000 during the International Salsa Festival in Veracruz and before more than 100,000 fans at Mexico City’s historic Zócalo.
The public has spoken. Marc Anthony has surpassed the greatest expectations of his fans and the press. With 3.0, he comes even closer to our hearts.
