"WILD CHILD." E.G. Daily. A&M. It's easy to become infatuated with this singer/actress' debut album. Daily's a sinewy, smoky vocalist who alternately shrieks and pouts as she tosses out some fine, beyond-Benatar, post-adolescent album rock. Daily and Rick Ramirez co-produce and co-write four songs (heavy on the synths and drum machines), and big-name producers Harold Faltermeyer, John (Jellybean) Benitez and Keith Forsey give the rest a high-gloss shine.

At a glance, it might appear that Ruben Blades has the best of all worlds. Even though his name isn't exactly a household word, the 37-year-old native of Panama has done quite well for himself in the United States. First, he released the ground-breaking "Buscando America" album, which Time magazine dubbed among the best of 1984. That was followed by last year's lead in the critically acclaimed film "Crossover Dreams" and participation in the historic "Sun City" record and video.

As a responsible reporter, I should write of India--the world's top-selling female salsa singer--in the third person, to keep my feelings out of the story. I should tell you dispassionately that after a Bronx childhood of poverty and domestic violence, after a 15-year career gaining legions of fans through constant touring, India is finally where many think she should have been years ago: on the verge of superstardom.
