Mexican singer and icon Luis Miguel posted a cryptic message this past weekend on his social media making fans wonder if he was working on a new album.
The short video came the day after New Year’s Day and featured the year “2022…” floating in a golden mist. Miguel’s two million followers on Instagram and 539,000 followers on Twitter were quick to speculate what the post meant.
“I want to imagine that this 2022 there is a new album [from ‘El Sol de Mexico’],” one Twitter user commented.
Another fan was ready to add to his collection of Miguel albums when the mysterious message came through.
The last time Miguel released an album was in 2017. The record, ¡México Por Siempre!, was the singer’s 20th studio album of his career. It went on to win two Latin Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year. It also won the Grammy Award for Best Regional Mexican Music Album. ¡México Por Siempre! hit No. 1 on Billboard’s U.S. Regional Mexican Albums chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s U.S. Top Latin Albums chart that year.
Before ¡México Por Siempre!, Miguel had released a new album every 1-2 years since his debut album in 1982. His self-titled album Luis Miguel debuted in 2010 before the seven-year break.
The third and final season of Luis Miguel: The Series premiered this past October on Netflix. Shortly after the season aired, Miguel took to social media to comment about the show. “The Netflix series is fiction,” he tweeted. “It is not 100% true. It’s based on real facts.”
Maybe Miguel’s ambiguous tweet is his way of teasing a new album. Or maybe it’s just him wishing everyone a Happy New Year. We’re sure his fans will be watching out for more clues in the weeks and months to come.
