“Fuego Cruzado” was selected by Bocanegra from the Telemundo telenovela “Guerra De Idolos” and performed by Daniel Elbittar. It was penned by Edgar Barrera, Yoel Enriquez, Alfonso Lizzarraga and Andres Saavedra.
The song features musical arrangements to create a Tejano ranchera style tune, a sound that is well known for La Preferencia. It features a mixture of the bajo quinto, accordion, and keyboard creating the orchestral signature of traditional Tejano music. The song relates to a love that was taken lightly and now he knows how much she meant to him and misses her a great deal and is trying to cope with her absence. You feel the void in its lyrics and his desperation.
“Fuego Cruzado” is available now at all digital music platforms and features Bocanegra, lead vocalist and recording studio engineer for BocaMusic Group (BMG), in collaboration with Joe Leal, Jr., music editing and mastering of MP Recording for Boca Mar Records; Roger Pena of Los Fugitivos, producer and musical arrangements, and Gerardo Alvarez, bajo quinto and harmonies.
