Elena Alexandra Apostoleanu born October 16, 1986 near Mangalia, Romania), known mononymously only as Inna, is a Romanian dance-pop singer, dancer and occasional songwriter. Inna is regarded as the catalyst to the wave of European dance music to hit Western Europe. On November 12, 2008, she released her debut single "Hot", which was produced by Play & Win, a Romanian dance music trio and one of the leading music producers in Romania. Collaboration with the Play & Win and Inna has been going on for several years.
And now they present us their new song Caliente, which was written specifically for the Mexican fans Inna. After last year's tournament in Mexico, she promised to return in 2012 with a song in Spanish.

Serious amounts of conscious lyrics ably enhanced by super-heavyweight production featuring the skills of the UK’s premiere Reggae producers Curtis Lynch Jr and Dready (Formerly J.D.) as well as tracks from other top producers hailing from around Europe.
The album showcases collaborations with vocalists including the legendary Daddy Freddy, Million Stylez, Shola Ama, Blackout (JA), and the UK’s homegrown hip-hop icon – Skinnyman.
In the words of David Rodigan, YT is “an original and inspiring social commentator", a fact that is well highlighted in tracks like ‘Baby Father’, ‘Hold the Faith’ and the title track from the album ‘Born inna Babylon’.
With her mind-blowing mix of heavy metal guitar prowess and bluesy, soulful vocals, Orianthi will draw some justifiably well-earned comparisons to such giants of rock guitar as Jimi Hendrix and her own idol, Carlos Santana, on her 2009 sophomore album, Believe. That said, her style hews closer to the more finger-frenetic pyrotechnics of such '70s and '80s icons as Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai. Throw in her ability to sell a lyric and carry a strong melodic vocal phrase while also throwing down some devastating slabs of heavy metal riffage, and she starts to look a heckuvalot like the fantasy love child of Prince and Lita Ford…
