Mamacita-to-be Paulina Rubio may be due in November but that doesn’t mean she’s slowing down. The 39-year-old Mexicana collaborated with R&B singer-songwriter Taio Cruz on the spanglish version of his “Dirty Picture” single from the album Rokstarr (Universal Island Records). Rubio reprises the role originally played by Kesha in the first cut of the song, purring “yo me haré una foto sexy” in her breathy, husky voice.
If you’re wondering why Cruz chose to Latinize the track, it’s simple: While other artists are trying to cross over into the Anglo market, the half-Brazilian artist realizes the buying (and listening) potential of the roughly 48 million Latinos in the United States alone. And seriously, who better to sex up this song than La Chica Dorada?
