Ananda is Paulina Rubio’s eighth studio album and was released in September 2006. For the production of this album, Paulina collaborated with songwriters and producers Xabier San Martín from la Oreja de Van Gogh, Fernando Montesinos, Eric Sanicola, Brooke Ross, Gustavo Celis, Nika Garcia, Julieta Venegas, Juanes, Cachorro López, Sebastian Schon, Sandra Baylac, Maria Christensen, Jonnie “Most” Davis, Marc Nelkin, Adrian Sosa, Aureo Baqueiro, Marcelo Berestovoy, Tricky Stewart and once again with Coti Sorokin as well as featuring Guns ‘N Roses ex-guitarist, Slash on the track “Nada Puede Cambiarme”. Once more, Paulina takes part in the songwriting aspect of the album for the third time in three of the album’s tracks: “Ayúdame”, “Lo Que Pensamos” and “Tú y Yo”. Ananda spawned only three official singles, giving Paulina her third number one single on Latin radio in the U.S.: “Ni Una Sola Palabra”. Even more, Paulina received several awards for this song’s success and “Ni Una Sola Palabra” was certified platinum in Spain. Upon its release, Ananda was number one in sales in Mexico as well as in the U.S. on Billboard‘s Top Latin Albums chart. Although a video featuring footage from Paulina’s Love, Light and Sound tour of “Que Me Voy a Quedar” was filtered on the Internet, it was never released as an official single. With the exception of “Ni Una Sola Palabra”, the album did not fare as well as Pau-Latina.
*This track was included as a bonus track in the Deluxe Version of the album released on March 20, 2007.
