His second album, "Necesito Un Amor" ("I Need A Love"), was released in 2003 with the hits "Voy A Tener Que Olividarte" and "Necesito Un Amor". His latest album, "Ironia" ("Irony"), was released in 2005. His hit, "Que Ironia", came in three forms: bachata, reggaeton, and balada, and his second hit, "A Quien Le Importa", was featured in bachata and balada.

Andy Andy has been popularly recognized for his music and his commitment to the Hispanic community.
