Enrique Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias is a Spanish pop music singer-songwriter who initially launched his musical career on Mexican label Fonovisa in 1995. He rapidly became one of the most popular artists in Latin America and in the Hispanic or Latino market in the United States, and the biggest seller of Spanish language albums of the 1990’s.

Before the turn of the millennium, he made a crossover into the mainstream English language market, signing a unique multi-album deal with Universal Music Group for an unprecedented sum of money.    The unique deal designated Universal Music Latino to release his Spanish albums and Interscope to release English albums. In 2010, he parted with Interscope and signed with another Universal Music Group label, Universal Republic.

Iglesias has had five Billboard Hot 100 top five singles including two #1s, and holds the record for producing 22 number 1 Spanish-language singles on the Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks. Up until the release of his latest album, Euphoria, in 2010, he had sold over 55 million albums in both English and Spanish.[1] He has also had eight #1 songs on Billboard’s Dance charts, more than any other single male artist.

Enrique has been touring recently to support “Euphoria”, and took a few minutes out of his incredibly busy schedule to speak with us.

Enrique, first, we wanted to say congratulations to you on the many achievements that you have scored on this most recent album project….How do you feel about the massive success you’ve had in the last year with the release of “Euphoria”?
It’s been fantastic. I’m so happy that it’s reached so many listeners. I’m forever thankful to fans both old and new.

What is your favorite song on the album and why?
I can’t really choose a favorite. I do really love “I Like It” - It’s just a fun upbeat party song, and it really gets the crowd going at shows.

What was it like to duet with Wisin & Yandel on the song, “No Me Digas Que No”?
It was great.  I love working with those guys.  Every time seems to get better and better.

What is your favorite genre of music?
I’ve always been into pop.

Which of your vocal collaborations has been your favorite (or most memorable)?

Once again, so hard to choose favorites as every single one has been unique and special in it’s own way. I can say, however, that working with a legend like Juan Luis Guerra was an amazing experience for me.

How do you feel that DJs and Clubs contribute to your worldwide success?
I’m forever thankful and glad my music is played on the scene.

How do you feel about being the first artist ever to top Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs and Mainstream Top 40 charts simultaneously with two different songs, in two different languages?
I love it!

What would you say is the most memorable moment of your career thus far?

This past Euphoria tour has been incredible so far. The large crowds in these incredible historical arenas makes everything worth while.

What has it been like to tour around the world with your latest album?
Amazing... I have to say that I think this is my best tour to date.

Is there a particular artist that you are intrigued by and would like to work with in the near future?
There’s many more.  In a perfect world, I’d like to collaborate with as many artists as possible.

THANK YOU so much for your time with our readers!
