Ileana Cabra Joglar (iLe) mocht al samen met haar broers op het podium staan bij Calle 13, maar daar lijkt dit album totaal niet op. Het gaat eerder terug naar de Latin/Cariben klassiekers van Puerto Rico en Cuba van voor 1960, dus meer Bolero / Ballad stijl met violen erbij. Maar ook uitbundige mambo en een prachtige, delicate ballad als Que Mal Que Estoy passeren de revue in deze groeiplaat.
Ileana Mercedes Cabra Joglar (1989), better known as «ILE», is a Puerto Rican singer, composer, and vocalist who for 10 years was the sole female singer of the Puerto Rican band Calle 13, performing along with her brothers René Pérez Joglar ("Residente") and Eduardo Cabra Joglar ("Visitante"). In June 2016 she released her first solo album "Ilevitable" to the praise of the critic and peers. New York Times described it as "a knowingly retro survey of Latin music’s past, full of romance and a longing that can turn despondent. She sings richly orchestrated boleros, delicate ballads and percussive boogaloo and mambo, without a hint of either irony or naïveté".
Some of the Island`s most prominent musicians collaborated or participated in the album such as Piro Rodríguez, Charlie Sepulveda, Bayrex Jiménez, Eduardo Cabra, Fofé Abreu from Circo, Louis García and the late Cheo Feliciano in one of his last recordings ever.
The first single to be released was Caníbal which was accompanied by a dramatic video directed by Argentinian Juan Manuel Costa. The video was described as an "animated Frida Kahlo painting" and has been positively reviewed by the critic. Her second single and video, "Te Quiero Con Bugalú", was released on July 7.
