The release of “Como le Gusta a tu Cuerpo” (“As Your Body Likes It”), the second single from “Deep Heart”, propelled Vives through the charts earlier this year, reaching the no. 5 spot on Billboard Latin Airplay charts and sky-rocketing to no. 1 in his native Colombia.
Sony Colombia also took the opportunity to thank Vives for creating what it described as a “beautiful album.”
