Puerto Rican Gilberto Santa Rosa, known as "El Caballero de la Salsa" (the salsa gentleman), turned into a more intimate and romantic style with Viceversa, one of his most ambitious projects produced by José Lugo. Anticipated with the hit single "Por Mas Que Intento," written by arranger/producer Kike Santander, this 13-track album features the sentimental and highly emotive bolero "Si Te Dijeron," composed by Victor Manuelle, and "No Pensé Enamorarme Otra Vez." In addition, this full-length record delivers a passionate ballad titled "Por Más Que Intento," and Domingo Quiñones' "Como El Que No Quiere la Cosa." However, Viceversa mainly comprises salsa, the popular tropical dance music style that made Santa Rosa one of its biggest stars.
