Background

On October 22, 2021 in an interview with LA Times, Christina talked a little bit about what the EP was focused about and her new releases, including her female collaboration "Pa Mis Muchachas" with argentinian singers Nathy Peluso and NICKI NICOLE and californian artist Becky G saying: "We recorded so much that I have music for three different albums [laughs]. It was such a productive process; everything flowed perfectly every day. So I’m going to be releasing new music until the end of 2022, and I’ll actually be releasing it in three different chapters that will be like mini albums. The first one will be called “La Fuerza” and will celebrate my power as a woman, something that seems to me to be clear in ”Pa’ Mis Muchachas”, because Latin women are very strong and ardent, as well as the backbone of the family.” [1]

In a "Q&A" interview with ABC News she talked about the process and what the album represent to her. When asked about her expectations for the EP she said the actually had "No expectations! It’s just a labor of love. I’ve been in this business too long to worry about expecting anything. Anything can always happen! I’ve learned over the years to truly let go of what people think, what people say. I just wanna do things that I love, do things that fans I hope love and appreciate and inspire them. At the end of the day, really make music that I can love and respect and feel proud of and share with my children, that will live on after I’m gone." [2]

She also shared her thoughs about not sticking to only one genre with the extended-play commenting: "I’m not a one-dimensional artist, I’ve always loved exploring different genres in English and to limit yourself also in Latin music — I just am inspired by too many different things to do that. I really wanted to be true to different things that inspire me, and I do love hanging out with my friends and listening to reggaeton and dancing, it makes you feel good. “Santo” with Ozuna is such an incredible embodiment of that, but you know, always honoring the classics. “La Reina” keeps it pretty authentic, is so fun to sort of step into that and also is a tribute to the legend, Vicente (Fernández) “El Rey”." [2]

Aguilera said she took things very seriously the songwritting process and pronunciation for the EP, which is different of what happened with her 2000's record, Mi Reflejo. She told ABC News that she's "a super perfectionist when it comes to myself and my work, and I’m very critical, so I take my time, and that’s also why I wanted to be surrounded and inside of it. Miami is such a hotbed of incredible talent from all over the world and again, the Latin music is undeniable, there’s nothing like it, and to feel it from the inside out is very important for me. So going there, and when I start hearing it from all angles and everybody is speaking it (laughs) — nobody is speaking English — you catch up very quickly and many things are remembered from being a kid. It’s like a second nature whenever I am around it and whenever I’m singing it. And not to say it’s not a challenge not being my first language, but I’m never going to back down from a challenge. I’m never going to take the easy way out either. I definitely have two incredible people that I work with who did help me on honing into the words, and it’s also tricky because every territory has a different way of speaking and different slang, so I really reverted that to the way I heard my father speak it and also keeping it pretty classic." [2]

On the release of the EP, she told Apple Music in a few words what the proyect represented to her commenting: "This isn’t my first language, but once it’s in you, it never leaves you. La Fuerza represents being a strong force of nature, having had the career I’ve had over the last couple of decades." [3]
