The artist, known for his Tropi-pop and Vallenato hits that have made fans dance and fall in love over the past two decades, has managed to retain his signature sound and soulful tenor voice despite the ever-evolving music industry landscape.

He feels that he is returning to the sound that marked the beginning of his career—a sound that he describes as organic and "woody." "Si Tú Me Quieres" provides a glimpse into the sonic direction Fonseca is pursuing, promising an album that will delight his fans.

Looking ahead to the next two decades, Fonseca envisions a future where he continues to write and sing. For him, music is not a sprint but a lifelong journey, a way of life that will always be a part of him.
