Frágil by Yahritza Y Su Esencia featuring Grupo Frontera is a song about heartbreak and the pain of being vulnerable in love. The lyrics express regret for giving one's heart to someone who didn't deserve it and the desire to have a heart that is not so easily broken. The song also touches on the idea of wanting to be like the person who caused the pain, but ultimately realizing that it's not possible to change who we are. The music, which combines elements of Latin and Regional Mexican genres, adds to the emotional intensity of the lyrics. Overall, Frágil is a powerful and relatable song about the fragility of the human heart.
