The single featuring the Pablo Flores remixes of the 1995 song 'Maria' became Ricky Martin's worldwide breakthrough hit in 1997, prompting him to become the biggest male Latin music star of the late 1990s. Flores was the chief remixer for all of Gloria Estefan's singles, and later also worked for Jennifer Lopes. The remix 'Maria' was somewhat styled after the successful Bayside Boys Remix of Los Del Rio's 'Macarena', which took the world by storm in 1996, although that group remained a one hit wonder outside of their native Spain.
