The producer explained how Exposé began in a 2016 interview on music website, No Echo:

My girlfriend at the time, Aléjandra [Lorenzo], who went on to be known as ‘Alé,’ she was doing the demos for these songs. The reason I had her doing that was that she would sing in the car along to the radio and I thought she sounded really good. So, after the ‘Point of No Return’ demo was done, I was searching for a singer who sounded like her for the record version. I was finally like, ‘Why can’t I just use her?'”[1]

Martineé has also worked with many other artists of note, producing, writing and or remixing tracks for artists including Ricky MartinDead or AliveEnrique IglesiasCeline DionCompany BArika KaneJermaine JacksonSequalthe Cover GirlsDebbie GibsonVanessa WilliamsPet Shop BoysSon by Four, and Elvis Crespo, among others.[2] His contributions to the nascent freestyle music movement in the mid-1980s contributed to its popularity, which continues to this day.
