Album information

Paulina is Rubio's first album released under the Universal label. Produced by Marcello Azevedo. To date, it is Paulina’s most successful album and is known as her signature album that launched her career even further with Universal. After terminating her contract with EMI, Paulina took nearly four years to prepare this release. Paulina updated her music and got ready for this new challenge with new producers and songwriters such as Estéfano, Armando Manzanero, Alejandro García Abad, Ralf Stemmann, Christian De Walden, Richard Daniel Roman, Ignacio Ballesteros and even Juan Gabriel himself. Paulina spawned seven singles, 2 of which reached number one on Mexican radio: “Lo Haré Por Ti” and “Y Yo Sigo Aquí”. With this album, Paulina proved that she returned to the music scene to stay for quite some time, as well as her evolution as an artist.


Paulina spawned seven singles: "Lo Haré Por Ti", "El Último Adiós", "Y Yo Sigo Aquí", and "Yo No Soy Esa Mujer", were major hits across Latin America and the U.S.. "Sexi Dance" and "Tal Vez, Quizá" were also released to moderate success. "Vive El Verano" was released in Spain and Italy as a promotional single where it reached #1 on the radio. The first four singles that were released were considered her most popular and her signature singles with Universal that launched her career.

Other two songs were released as promotional singles. "Sin Aire" was launched in Spain in the summer of 2001 and "Mírame A Los Ojos" in Brazil for the promotion of a telenovela, but it was well accepted that it was launched on radio stations.

The album received excellent reviews from the critics. Allmusic's Steve Huey gave a very good review, giving the album 4.5 out of 5 stars: "Paulina Rubio's fourth album, titled simply Paulina, is her first for the Universal label, and also her first in four years. The club/dance diva style of Planeta Paulina is still in evidence, but here Rubio also works in plenty of infectious Latin pop, plus a few show-stopping ballads. About half the tracks were written by Colombian songwriter Estefano, and they display a variety that's never been quite so fully realized on a Rubio album before. All in all, it's one of her best to date."

Commercial performance

The album has been Rubio's most successful to date. It peaked at #156 on the Billboard 200 chart and #1 on both the Top Latin Albums and the Latin Pop Albums charts for three weeks.[7] In 2002 the album sold 374,000 copies in the United States,[7] and in total was certified 8× platinum for the shipping of 800,000 copies in the U.S alone. It also peaked at #1 on the Mexican Albums Chart and reached #2 in Spain. With this album, Paulina achieved international recognition and success, as several of the album’s singles entered the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart in the US. The album was certified Gold and Platinum in Mexico, U.S, Colombia, Central America, Venezuela, Spain, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Ecuador.[8][9] Worldwide the album sold 1.6 million copies the first year,[10] the figure increased to 2.5 million in 2002.[2]
