Mis Favoritas is the Latin version of Sony's Playlist series. As such, it takes label artists and presents not only their most obvious hits, but also digs deeper. Here you will find cuts that offer a true portrait of Juan Gabriel's career with Sony Latin. Certainly, "Querida," "Todo Está Bien," and their ilk are included in this set, but so are selections such as "Que Bello Es el Amor" featuring Estela Nuñez and "Perdóname, Olvídalo" featuring Rocío Dúrcal. "Me He Quedado Solo" and an alternate version of "No Tengo Dinero" both feature Gabriel with Fernando Kazuo Shibusawa. The closing number, the hit "Abrázame Muy Fuerte," is presented as a radio remix, making this eclectic and sometimes eccentric compilation one of the must-haves in Gabriel's catalog for hardcore fans.
