"Esse Cara Sou Eu" is an extended play (EP) released by Brazilian singer Roberto Carlos in 2012.[1] The EP has sold over 1.7 million copies in Brazil.[2]

Among the four present tracks, two are new: the title track, a romantic ballad, "", a funk melody written in partnership with Erasmo Carlos. Both tracks were included on the soundtrack of the Rede Globo's telenovela Salve Jorge in 2012.[3]

The CD version includes the song "A Volta", re-recording an old success of Os Vips, composed by Roberto to the duo in 1966, which was included on the soundtrack of the Globo's telenovela América.[4][5] The song "A Mulher Que Eu Amo" was featured in the telenovela Viver a Vida broadcast by the same station in 2009.[4][6] The title track won the Latin Grammy Award for Best Brazilian Song and received a nomination for Song of the Year at the 14th awards ceremony in 2013.[7]

In 2014, a Spanish-language version of the EP, Ese Tipo Soy Yo, was released targeting the Latin American market.[8]
