He smashes records. He brings home more gold than any other Olympic athlete in history. He triggers global swoons every time he slips off his shirt. Michael Phelps not only hails from Baltimore, he also dolphin-kicked right back here after Beijing to buy a home even when he could have lived anywhere. As if that weren't enough, he's single-handedly helping local restaurants survive the recession with his famous sumo-worthy meals. How many bands that hit the big time have a homage to their hometown built into their very name?

When VH1 aired its big "Divas Live" special in April, some folks wondered how Gloria Estefan sneaked into the line-up. After all, when it comes to making a bravura display of vocal virtuosity, Estefan is not on the same level as fellow VH1 divas Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, or Mariah Carey.But if Estefan isn't quite a diva in the pop or operatic sense, she surely qualifies as a disco diva. She made her name belting out dance tunes with the Miami Sound Machine, and still owes a sizable portion of her audience to such oldies as "Conga" and "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You."

He sounds excited, calling from inside the Museum of Sex in New York "You ought to check this place out, man," says DEL, 27, a newcomer on the urban / pop scene. "It's pretty good, I hear. This is my first time here." It's strangely fitting that he's conducting a phone interview from such a place. Throughout the singer's slick debut, Go All Night, and in promotional shots, it's obvious that he's selling what he seems to have naturally: sex appeal. "I'm aware of how important image is in this business," says DEL, whose real name is Francisco Del. "But I gonna be myself.

MI TIERRAGloria Estefan (Epic 53807)However much this collection of Cuban music might look like a homecoming, Gloria Estefan's "Mi Tierra" could just as easily be considered a voyage of discovery. Even though Estefan has long been a staple on the Latin charts, her music rarely delved into the Afro-Cuban idioms celebrated here, tending instead toward sentimental ballads and salsa-fied dance pop. This album makes up for lost time, however. Not only is the music wonderfully authentic in its blend of richly rhythmic dance tunes and gently percolating ballads, but Estefan herself has never sounded better, lending luster to the sad, insinuating melody of "Volveras" and navigating the call-and-response chorus of "Hablemos el Mismo Idioma" as confidently as Celia Cruz ever could.
