Better than: Coming home and hearing about Whitney.
I lived in the Bronx during the 23 weeks when Aventura's The Last reigned over the Billboard Latin chart, and the local quartet's music was everywhere. From all-night dance clubs to family reunions at Crotona Park, corner bodegas to Orchard Beach, there were few places you could go to escape it. Of course, why would you have wanted to when any of the album's 16 tracks (the two skits don't count), plus the inevitable throwbacks like "Obsesion" and "Hermanita," could start a party as quickly as they could turn around a floundering one?
