Forget the swaggering young cocks of new banda and norteño. This hot young thing uses his time in front of brass and accordions for sweet-talking and woo-pitching. Rueda spends most of Sinaloense romancing, with his silvery voice, and dancing -- or at least slinging plenty of fodder for swinging your novia around the dancefloor (check out sultry rumba "Todo Porque Te Amo"). Even when he gets hang-dog bitter ("Porque Te Quiero"), he still sounds sweet as a puppy. And even when he raucously expresses a desire to get rip-roaringly drunk, it kinda sounds like the best date ever.
