She may not be the latest celebrity to add her name to the long list of stars, who have debuted a signature fragrance, at least not yet, but after a three-year recording hiatus Colombian singer Fanny Lu returned to the studio and left with her very own version of “El Perfume”.

At 42 years old, Fanny Lu, who broke into the Hispanic music market in 2006 with her first album Lágrimas Cálidas and whose “No te pido que me mandes flores” was a favorite on latin radio nationwide, has set out to recreate the sweet smell of her earlier success with this single. But this time, she did so with a little help from her friends.

“El Perfume”, which was released by Sony Music Latin, was written by fellow Colombian and Grammy award winning artist Carlos Vives in partnership with his longtime producer and co-writer Andrés Castro. Lu also worked with Vives on a revamped version of his song “Tierra del Olvido”.

Yet, Lu’s catchy “El Perfume” displays the Cali native’s original tropical pop/vallenato sound, and like her previous work has an infectious chorus, stand out accordion riffs and of course a beat fans can enjoy dancing to.

In an interview with Billboard’s Leila Cobo, Fanny Lu said:

“Colombia is my country, my heart and my inspiration, and this new single and album reflect that.”

Despite her absence from the recording studio, it’s important to remember that both of the singles released by Lu after “No te pido que me mandes flores”, “Y si te digo” and “Tu no eres para mi” achieved a No.1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay charts.

Her most recent work was as a coach on La Voz Kids Colombia. However, the songstress and former Latin Grammy nominee is now on full “El Perfume” promotion mode and has traveled to a slew of cities, including Miami, to talk to a variety of press outlets about her new production.
