Background

In a Billboard interview, Martin described the track: "I fell in love with the melody of this song, which was brought to me by Wisin & Yandel. We sat down -- Wisin & Yandel, Desmond Child and me -- and we worked on the lyrics to make them more me. So we have several versions and we're working on a remix. The lyrics say, "You're beautiful, like the waves in the sea." And many people say, 'But Ricky, you've said you're gay.' And I say, 'Well, doesn't mean I'm blind. And I've also been in love with women before.'"[2]

Critical reception

"Frío" received positive reviews from critics. The Los Angeles Times said: "steeped in the majestic atmospherics of reggaetón but reflected through a prism of creamy pop, the lush "Frío"—composed by famed boricua duo Wisin & Yandel—is probably the strongest cut here."[3] The New York Post called it a beautiful standout tune.[4] Latina wrote that "the reggaeton-tinged "Frío" slows things down with lyrics about a beautiful woman imagined by Martin and collaborators Wisin & Yandel. The remix of the song makes for a sexy dance floor number."[5]

Music video

Ricky Martin shot the music video with Wisin & Yandel in Buenos Aires on June 6, 2011. The female lead is portrayed by Argentinian top model Paula Chaves. The video, directed by Carlos Pérez, premiered on July 21, 2011. Pérez worked with Martin on few of his previous videos, including: "Tal Vez", "Jaleo" and "The Best Thing About Me Is You".

Remixes and other versions

Música + Alma + Sexo contains the original solo version of the song and a remix featuring Wisin & Yandel. On July 11, 2011, "Frío" (Wally López Remix) was released as a digital download. The Remix Radio Edit of the song was released as a digital download on July 18, 2011.
