Cristian Castro is a superstar, and he can cry if he wants to

Castro contributed to the writing of "Cupid" and translated "Yo Quería" ("I Wanted"), written by Toto Cotungo. He describes "Yo Quería" as "a ballad that achieves what I've always wanted to say in a ballad." His formula as a composer, however, is not yet completely developed. He is still uncomfortable looking for lyrics, pursuing a language, and he will not be at peace until he manages to reflect or exorcise what hurts inside.

"I am a song hunter," he says, admitting that he is waiting for the moment to release his own more intimate lyrics. In the music he imagines, he says, "tears are revealed as the most sacred liquid." His speech gives a taste of what he has in mind, as he says he wants to capture the "chill of silence that atrophies every bud of passion, even between lovers" and the "pieces that fit together before falling apart and disappearing." In the meantime songwriter Santander best describes the process that lies ahead for Castro as he seeks to unite his singing voice with the scream he keeps inside. "It would not be searching for perfection," sings Castro, his tremulous voice breaking with sincerity, "but searching in the depths where truth is found."
