"Wrapped" ("Hoy" in Spanish) became a major hit for Gloria and signified her return to prominence in the charts, as the song was successful in both its English and Spanish versions. This single is Gloria's highest charting song in Switzerland, reaching the Top 3 and certified Gold for its strong sales. Gloria also debuted in Belgium within the Ultratip Top 10.

This single became the first single Gloria released as a Digital Download, and the Spanish version topped the Downloads charts in Spain. The single was not released commercially in the United States, but the single was available as a single to download at the iTunes music store.

This single become in one of the most successful Spanish singles ever released on her entire career, being a complete success on the charts, especially in Latin America. The song was a chart-topper on the United States Hot Latin Tracks for four non-consecutive weeks; it also topped the charts on another five countries all of them from Latin America. It remains as one of the most successful singles ever for Gloria in Argentina in which it was at the number one spot for five weeks. [1].

"Hoy" and the lyrics for this song were written by Gian Marco Zignago, a Peruvian song writer and singer.

Due the success of the song in the Spanish version, the song was added to the setlist in a Salsa remix for the Estefan's 2004 Live & Re-Wrapped Tour, aside the original version in English.
