Sebastian wrote and produced all tracks included, four performed by him, four songs by Lucero and three duets recorded by both.
Un Lujo debuted in the top five in the Billboard Top Latin Albums in the United States and within the top forty in Mexico. The lead album single – the duet “Caminar Contigo” – went on to chart in the top twenty of the Billboard Latin Songs and the second single, “Diséñame”, performed by Sebastian also charted in Mexico and the United States. The album was nominated for a 2013 Billboard Mexican Music Award.
Mexican singer Lucero and fellow Mexican singer-songwriter Joan Sebastian were both signed to the same record label (Musart Records) during the 80s, and Lucero recorded songs written by Sebastian on her albums Fuego y Ternura (1985) and Lucerito: Ocho Quince (1988). In 1992, Lucero included on her album Lucero De México Sebastian’s song “Llorar” (“Cry”) and was released as the lead single from the album reaching top thirty in the Billboard Latin Songs. In 2010, Lucero starred in the telenovela Soy Tu Dueña and was joined by Sebastian on the theme song titled “Golondrinas Viajeras” (“Traveler Swallows”) which was later included on Sebastian’s album Huevos Rancheros (2011).
While shooting the telenovela Por Ella Soy Eva in March 2012, Lucero recorded and released “No Me Dejes Ir” (“Don’t Let Me Go”), a song that was to be included on the soundtrack, and also revealed that she was still working on a new album to be titled Lujo produced by Joan Sebastian. Two months later the album title was announced as Un LuJo, using the first two letters of the names of both singers.Un Lujo includes four songs recorded by each performer individually and three duets. The song “Diséñame” (“Design Me”) was presented by Sebastian at the Festival Acapulco 2012. Sebastian stated that the album is “a representation of the love and admiration we have for each other”.
