Production and success

Secada was the backing vocalist for the Cuban singer Gloria Estefan in 1989.[1] Secada became close friends with Estefan and her husband, Emilio Estefan Jr., who helped to guide Secada into the music business.[1] Secada released his first album, Jon Secada in 1992 with SBK Records.[1] The recording was made up of English-language compositions and two Spanish-language tracks. It was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), denoting shipments of three million copies.[2] Secada, with the help of Emilio, decided to release an all Spanish-language album. During the recording sessions, Secada confirmed that Gloria helped to translate his English-language recordings into Spanish.[3] He said that she told him to record songs which he would be comfortably fine with singing throughout his career as a singer. She also told them not to "translate everything literally" but to "keep the same theme of the song in play".[3] "Angel" was written about a woman Secada had met in Amsterdam. He wrote in his autobiography that "writing those songs crystallized for me the fact that I was missing out on a deep emotional connection."[4]

"Angel" was released as the second single from his Spanish album. It peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart on the week ending October 31, 1992.[5] John Lannert of Billboard called "Angel" a "dramatic love ode".[6] Carlos Bolívar Ramírez described the singles "Otro Día Más Sin Verte" and "Angel" erroneously as rock ballads in his book La balada: mensaje universal (2001).[7] "Angel" was nominated for Pop Song of the Year at the 1993 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards.[8] "Angel" was the ninth best-performing Latin single on the Hot Latin Tracks year-end chart in 1992.[8]
