MIAMI  – Celebrating his 25-year career, the renowned Puerto Rican sonero Víctor Manuelle released his 18th album 25/7  one of the most varied records of his career, in physical and digital format via Sony Music Latin.
Expressing his pride and gratitude, Víctor Manuelle explains the meaning of the album’s title: “When I embarked on this dream, I never imagined I would get so much back – the love of a faithful audience that’s willing to do whatever it takes to show me its support; the ability to travel the world carrying the banner of salsa, and the pride of representing my country, Puerto Rico; meeting and sharing with so many fellow artists of different generations whom I admire and respect.  Summarizing, during the last 25 years, at all hours of the day and night, a song of mine has been playing somewhere in the world. Therefore, I’ve been with you 25/7.”
Accompanying Víctor Manuelle in this celebration are other outstanding Puerto Rican artists from different generations, including Gilberto Santa Rosa, Glenn Monroig, Yandel, Farruko and Bad Bunny.
All of the songs on 25/7 sound unique, but all remain true to the tropical roots that Víctor Manuelle has cultivated throughout his career.
Amarte Duro” (Love You Hard) feat. Farruko – With musical arrangements by Jay Lugo, this is the fourth single from the album. Farruko adapts his flow to salsa with skill and mastery.

In addition, it hit #1 on the Colombia tropicalchart, and went Top 10 in the United States, Puerto Rico, Panama and El Salvador. During the last week of 2017, it stood at #1 in Peru just as “Mala y Peligrosa” jumped to #2, making him the only salsa artist of 2017 to hold down the top two spots simultaneously.
