India’s made a career out of being the salsa star who’s diferente, of course, from releasing an album of jazz standards to her groundbreaking work with ex-hubbie Lil Louis Vega. On the album where she proclaims it, la India tries her hand at a bit of urban swagger, duetting with Ivy Queen and preening and posing her way through a “salsaton” title track. She’s got the diva wattage to pull it off, of course. But given that this is India and she is, well, “diferente,” she couples her reggaeton dabbling with a collaboration with the legendary Tito Nieves and a sweet duet with her own mama.
