    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Te Quiero” is a latin pop song by Guatemalan recording artist Ricardo Arjona, released on 5 July 2012 as the third single from his thirteenth studio album, Independiente (2011). The song was written by Arjona, who produced it with longtime collaborators Dan Warner and Lee Levin under their stage name Los Gringos. Additional recording work was handled by Peter Wallace, Matt Rollings, Carlos “Cabral” Junior and Isaías García.

The song became Arjona’s fifth single to reach number one on the US Billboard Top Latin Songs, his ninth to do so on the Latin Pop Songs chart and third on Latin Tropical Airplay. It also charted at No.10 on the Billboard Mexican Airplay chart. An accompanying music video for “Te Quiero” was released in June 2012. It was directed by Gabriel Blanco and filmed during Arjona’s concert shows at the Vélez Sarsfield Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as part of his Metamorfosis World Tour, and marks the first time Arjona releases a music video recorded from his live performances while on tour.


“Te Quiero” is a latin pop song written and produced by Arjona, alongside logtime collaborators Dan Warner and Lee Levin under their stagename Los Gringos. Roger Hudson provided additional background vocals for the song, and Matt Rollings, Peter Wallace, Carlos “Cabral” Junior and Isaías García served as recording engineers, along with Warner and Levin. “Te Quiero” was mixed by David Thoener in The Blue Grotto at Nashville, Tennessee and mastered by Tom Coyne in Sterling Sound at New York City.

The song’s composition is heavily based on drums and guitars, along with additional Hammond B-3, bass and percussion elements. David Jeffries from Allmusic, on his review of Independiente, stated that the song “builds into a full-band rave-up during its choruses.” A live version of “Te Quiero” was made and used on the music video for the song, and was included on the single release.

Music video

Arjona performed “Te Quiero” alongside new songs and past hits on his Metamorfosis World Tour, as well as on a program broadcast by Televisa in 2011.

The music video for “Te Quiero” was released on 20 June 2012. The clip was filmed during Arjona’s concert shows at the Vélez Sarsfield Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as part of his Metamorfosis World Tour. The video was directed by Gabriel Blanco and was produced by Tamir Lotan. This is the first time Arjona releases a music video recorded from his live performances while on tour. The clip starts showing behind the scenes shots of Arjona, his team and his fans while the song begins to play. Then, it shows the singer on stage singing the song in front of the public at the Velez Stadium, interpolated with shots from people during the performance singing the song. The live version of the song used on the clip was included on the single release of the song. As of 14 August 2012, the video has reached 2.1 million views on YouTube.
