Latin pop star Robi Draco Rosa has pushed back the release of his forthcoming album to allow him time to recover from cancer surgery.

The former Menudo boyband member, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma last year (11), has been working on a duets disc called Vida and was due to unveil the project next month (Nov12).

However, Draco Rosa recently underwent a stem cell transplant and his bosses at Sony Music have since decided to delay the album until February (13) so he can make a full recovery from the operation, according to Billboard.com.
