Tego Caldeon releases highly-anticipated new album, "The Underdog"

Written by Nelson Ortiz,

August 29, 2006 -- Reggaeton superstar, Tego Calderón of Puerto Rico released his new album today named "The Underdog/El Subestimado" on Atlantic/Jiggiri records.

"The Underdog" is his second album and his first under the new deal with Atlantic Records.

Calderón, who is considered one of the pioneers of Reggaeton, is not limiting his latest release to only reggae beats with Spanish lyrics. This album will have a variety of rhythms and styles that will hopefully take his music to new heights. From '70s-style funk to blues and a return to straight-up salsa, "The Underdog/El Subestimado" could turn into a new era in Latin music.

Calderón describes his release as "a musical journey through the Afro-Caribbean culture." It showcases poetry from the heart and is a unique fusion of elements taken from traditional bomba Puertorriqueña, Jamaican reggae, blues, Cuban rumba, and New York salsa.

"THE UNDERDOG/EL SUBESTIMADO" contains 22 tracks plus one bonus track and features collaborations with such artists as Buju Banton, Eddie Dee & Voltio, Yandel, Chyno Nyno, Don Omar, and legendary salsa singer Oscar D'León. The album also features the work of producers DJ Nelson, Danny Fornaris, DJ Nesty, Naldo, DJ Joe, Echo & Diesel, Cookee, Major League, Salaam Remi, Erick Figueroa, Daniel Cruz & Eduardo Lobo, and Troyton Rami. All the songs on the album were co-written by Calderón, with the exception of "Chango Blanco," written by Luis López Cabán. Featured in the album is a special booklet with bilingual track-by-track commentary by award-winning Puerto Rican author and professor Mayra Santos-Febres.

With the exception of an occasional English chorus, this album is entirely in Spanish.

"We purposefully had little English," says Calderon. "Even though we had pressure from Atlantic to include Anglo artists, it wasn't what I wanted to bring, and they respected that."

The first single for the Latin market will be "Los Maté," produced by DJ Nesty & Naldo which is currently getting a lot of airplay.
