2 Perdiendo la Cabeza (Losing my Head)
3 Te Esperaba (I Was Expecting You)
100 Años (100 Years)
Mírame a los ojos que te siento diferente
Tengo miedo de nosotros
Que este amor se haya gastado de repente
Vuelve a recordarme cuando todo era nuevo
Look into my eyes because I feel you're different
I'm afraid of us
That this love has suddenly worn out
Remind me again when everything was new
"100 años" is a song by Carlos Rivera and Maluma that addresses a relationship that is in danger of ending. The lyrics express the singer's fear that the love between them has suddenly run out, and they ask the person they are singing to to remember when their love was new and they promised it would be eternal. The singer pleads with their partner not to leave them, and offers to change if that is what it takes to save the relationship. They express their unwillingness to let the love end, saying that even though people say that no heartbreak lasts more than 100 years, they do not want to be the first one to find out if that is true.

Sigo recordando
La noche entera en la que yo te vi bailando
Lo que sentí cuando tú estabas cerquita
Y esa boquita fue mi boquita

The whole night that I saw you dancing
What I felt when you were close
And that little mouth was my little mouth

Con mi fuerza al universo

With my strength to the universe
I wrote you a couple of verses
That I sent flying to the sky
