La Jefa by Alicia Villarreal
Released: Jun 2009
Label: Fonovisa
Having tested pop and traditional waters on her previous efforts, Alicia Villarreal experiments with an edgier style on her fourth album. (Which makes a whole lot of sense when you see that fierce album cover.) There's a scratchy, huskier tone to her pouty baby-doll vocals that makes the former Grupo Limite singer sound tougher than she ever has, whether she's singing about cerveza y tequila (as on the title track), sassily sashaying a group of male backup singers through a norteno waltz ("Si Crees...") or positively soaring on the harmonized ballad "Cuando Nadie Te Quiera."
