"Mi Tierra" (My Homeland) was the first single released by Gloria Estefan on her first Spanish album Mi Tierra, it was written by Estefano based on inspirations by Estefan.
The song was the first single released from the album and a tribute to Gloria's homeland Cuba - the principal reason for the making of the album. This song was first released in the United States and took Gloria to the Hot Latin Tracks top position. The song reached the number-one spot on the chart, and was her first number-one hit since the Spanish version of "Don't Wanna Lose You" in 1989. The song was also a hit on other markets (like the dance market), where it became Gloria's first Spanish single to ever reach the Top 5 of the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.
This song was also Gloria's first number-one in Spain, which led the album to become the most successful album released in the country for its sales of more than a million. The song was one of the first Spanish-language songs to reach the Top 40 on some English language countries like United Kingdom and Australia, a record-breaking honor which would set the tone for the success of future Latin-American and Hispanic artists.
