Labán’s savory love ballad “Acércate” will touch your heart with its sultry saxophone and jazzy instrumentation. Labán’s seductive vocals, reggae tone beat, and smooth guitar riffs open up the chorus. The smokin’ rhythm section emphasizes the intense and silky harmonies as the saxophone riffs under the warm vocals. Labán lyrics, arrangement, and production are sensational with smooth jazz lines and funk beats.
"Acércates" is a beautiful love ballad expressing the passions of two lovers. The lyrics are sung beautifully by Labán, "Acércate, acércate, cuando no tienes compromisos, Acércate y esperemos que la vida nos deja mantener nuestro amor, hasta el final, y que nuestra voluntad impida nuestro amargo amor, de la contaminación." In English means,"Come closer, come closer, when you have no commitments, Come closer, and let's hope, that life lets us keep our love until the end, and that our will prevents our bitter love from contamination." The glorious sounds of his smooth voice resonates, so clearly, a beautiful love letter of admiration.
