Following a trend started with his 2001 album Rivera, formerly known as a salsa singer (aka "salsero"), Jerry Rivera turned to Latin pop once again with Vuela Muy Alto, produced by Ramón Sánchez and Emanuele Ruffinengo and featuring the hit single "Vuela Muy Alto," an acoustic guitar-driven pop ballad written by Estéfano. Jerry Rivera grabs a hold of listeners' hearts while unleashing a torrent of well-crafted romantic songs, such as "Las Alas De Mi Corazón" and "Herida Mortal." However, the Puerto Rican sensation does not leave behind the sound of the contemporary salsa rhythm he started performing at a young age in his native Santurce. Vuela Muy Alto includes "Ella," a song written by his dad, musician Edwin Rivera, and "Hoy Me Juraré," composed along with his sister.
