Mexican Pop Queen María José Remains Better Than Ya Faves

Sometimes I think Mexico is my spiritual home. With flawless divas like Paulina Rubio, Lucero, Patricia Manterola, Fey, Belinda, Anahí and Lorena Herrera churning out albums faster than a Korean girlband - there's always something new and utterly defining to discover. One of my favourite Mexi-pop icons is María José. Her last two albums featured on my best of 2009 and 2010 countdowns, and I still play her amazing Katy Perry rip-off "No soy una Señora" on an almost-daily basis. Well, the 36-year-old pop icon is back with a new single called "Tú Ya Sabes A Mí" and it's another triumph. After two covers albums, it's nice to hear something original from María. Her smoky voice brings the perky dance anthem to life and that 2003-tastic Mexican production does it for me. The video (below), on the other hand, is a crime against good taste. Even Fey would draw the line at this boring mess! Oh well, you can't have it all. The ravishing beauty is going to unleash her 4th studio album very soon. Stay tuned.
