Gilberto Santa Rosa's Contraste is a 2-disc set as the salsero tries to move from straight salsa to more of a pop sound. One of the discs is salsa, the other contains songs that are pop/ballads. Some of the same tunes are on each disc, "Conteo Regresivo" being one of them. I don't know which version caught the LARAS judge's attention, but in either case, it's the same song and the same songwriter! I've included both versions.
Listen to "Llego El Amor"
