My iTunes library is about half purchased via Apple and the other half imported from CDs or vinyl that we purchased.

I almost always verify/correct all the tags when I add a song. I would have said always, but today I discovered an "Unknown Album" containing only one song. The artist tag is Jaci Velásquez, and it does sound like her.

The title tag is "Padre Celestial" but I don't think that phrase is in the lyrics at all. beets can't find a match in MusicBrainz. I looked at Spanish works by her in Discogs, and none of them had that song. iTunes store doesn't have any by her that seem likely, especially not close to the right length, 4:31

As far as I know, we only had one CD and no vinyl from her, and that one is in the library, complete and correctly tagged.

The most surprising part is that I cannot find even the lyrics on line! I tried three different lines, nothing. (That may be because lyrics sites almost always have lots of misspellings.)

It starts out with:

Vengo hoy a tí con corazón dispuesto
Vengo hoy a tí porque lo que más quiero es de estar junto a tí.

I have those two lines in an MP3 but I don't know how to embed it.

Tried Shazam and SoundHound. Both offered me songs by a male, and neither sounded anywhere near this one.

Searched through all her albums in iTunes store and Pandora and don't find it. Yet the file is CD quality, the voice sounds like her, and the accompaniment is a style similar to some of her other stuff. Neither of the first two lines gets any hits in a web search. Mystery.

  • Please check here how you can learn how you can improve your question and increase your chances for find the music you're looking for. I know spanish language, but I'm not familiar with the female artist. If you have a sample which you can post in your question, that would help and I'll try help too. – Mauricio Arias Olave Jul 13 '17 at 19:38
  • I started reading that and got irrtated because it was advising me to do things I had already done (and said so). But eventually, it got into resources I wasn't aware of. As for posting a sample, I repeat, I don't know how. – WGroleau Jul 13 '17 at 19:49
  • Had you heard confío by Jaci Velásquez? googlin the line you add in your question only shows this song. – Mauricio Arias Olave Jul 13 '17 at 19:57
  • It's not confío. When I put the first line into Google without quotes, I get tons of useless hits (because without quotes is liking searching for any of the words.) Add the quotes, nothing. – WGroleau Jul 13 '17 at 20:38

    The last I can think is: provide a sample in your question and if you didn't do it yet, try to contact her via Twitter or other social media - check her website. Good luck. – Mauricio Arias Olave Jul 13 '17 at 20:43
