Shelly Lares discusses her latest album “Obra De Amor”, plans for her next project and much more in an interview with Tejano Nation radio affiliate La Voz 93.3 in Abilene.

The Hall of Fame singer told La Voz 93.3 morning hosts Pete Garcia and Superman that her latest album is probably the best of her 36-year career in Tejano music.

“I would have to say out of the 24, 25 CDs has to be probably my best album right now honestly,” said Lares. “It is doing extremely well. I couldn’t ask for more.”

The latest hit single is “Ayer” featuring JR Gomez, a collaboration that didn’t end up as originally planned.

“Sometimes you hear things in your head and then you do it and it doesn’t kind of work out like that,” said Lares. “He was singing harmony on the chorus and we’re like ‘Man, this doesn’t sound good.’ The melody wasn’t fitting the harmonies like we were hoping it would and we’re like ‘Hey man, just answer me,’ because it’s going to set it aside from just your typical duet.”

The changes worked as “Ayer” has become one of the top hits of 2019.

Lares also spoke about the plans for her next project, one that will showcase her roots in music.

“Most of my fans know I started orchestra when I was a little girl, I started with an orquesta Hot Tamales, that was the name of the band,” she said. “So, the next CD I’m going to do is all orquesta and I’m going to pay homage to where I started.”

Lares plans to re-record the five 45 rpm singles she recorded when she was younger and release special limited edition vinyl for her next album.
