When your most popular single is practically your native country's second national anthem, I guess it's safe to say you've made it. But then, Diego Torres had pretty much made it once he released his eponymous debut in 1992, which eventually hit triple platinum in his homeland of Argentina.
Case in point: his 2004 releaseMTV Unplugged
, which spawned the massive hit, "Cantar Hasta Morir." But without question, his greatest claim to fame to date remains the aforementioned upbeat anthem "Color Esperanza."
Torres just dropped his eighth record, Distinto, this past May, and the first single off it, "Guapa," has already made a big splash at pop radio, quickly cracking the Top 20. The album also features some interesting collabos from Spanish rapper La Mala Rodriguez, Yotuel of Orishas, and Kevin Johansen.

Diego Torres is performing a special showcase tomorrow night at the Miami Gibson showroom, but alas, the event is by invite only. Sorry fans, seems you'll need to wait until he goes on tour.
