Mexico City, Oct 20 (IANS/EFE) Spanish singer Pablo Alboran said he gets “goose bumps” when he thinks about the rapid success he has obtained with his self-titled first album, which he presented in Mexico with a live acoustic rendition of four songs from it.

Alboran, 22, rocketed to the top of the charts of best-selling albums in Spain and became a phenomenon on the Internet, where the videos of his numbers received millions of hits even before his album was released.

“It gives me goose bumps, it’s a very nice situation. I feel very privileged. We’ve worked a great deal but also we’ve had a lot of luck and I feel very grateful to everyone,” said Alboran.

After winning over the public of his country and managing to keep himself in the top slots on the charts for six consecutive weeks, Alboran is now trying to enter the Latin American market in a big way.

He traveled to Chile and Argentina and has just arrived in Mexico “expectantly, wanting to work and for everything to go well”, he said.

“Mexico was one of my priority appointments because I’m passionate about this land, its culture, its cooking. You feel a lot of music (here). … It’s a challenge for us to come here,” he said.
