This album features a collection of fifteen of the biggest hits of his career, especially 'El cantante', that became his logo theme.
The world of 'salsa' music had on the ill-fated Puerto Rican singer Héctor Juan Pérez Martínez (Ponce, 1946-1993), alias Hector 'Lavoe', the voice more grateful, recognized and imitated of the genre.

In the 1920s, workers in the far southern province of Argentina went on strike for better working and living conditions. In this film, the story of that strike is depicted.

Marc Anthony plays the role of Héctor Lavoe in El Cantante, the film he had been wanting and waiting to make for many years. Lavoe is a hero to salsa fans, famed for the artistry of his vocals and the intensity of his rhythm; his records with Willie Colón during the early '70s were high points for salsa, and they paved the way for many vocalists to come (including one Marc Anthony). Anthony's physical resemblance to Lavoe is only passing, but no other musician alive could have done as much with this soundtrack tribute to Lavoe. Enlisting a variety of famed salsa musicians (including Yomo Toro, Marc Quiñones, Bobby Allende, Milton Cardona, José Mangual, and Tito Allen), Anthony and producer Sergio George reprise nine of Héctor Lavoe's best moments on wax, including "Aguanile," "Che Che Colé," "Mi Gente," and the title track. The arrangements are very faithful to the '70s and '80s originals, except for occasional strings that work very well in context.
