Career

"Enrique Iglesias" album

In 1995, he released his first album with a subtitle of Spanish. Titled Enrique Iglesias, this was a collection of light rock ballads, including such mega-hits as "Si Tú Te Vas", "Experiencia Religiosa", and others. The record sold half a million copies in its first week, a rare accomplishment then for an album recorded in a language other than English. Year 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full 1995 Gregorian calendar). ...


His song "Por Amarte" was included in Televisa's telenovela Marisol, but with a twist: instead of Por amarte daria mi vida (To love you, I'd give my life), the words were Por amarte Marisol, moriría (To love you, Marisol, I'd die). The CD also yielded Italian and Portuguese editions of the album, with most of the songs translated into those languages.

After the success of "Bailamos", several mainstream record labels were eager to sign Enrique. Signing a multi-album deal after weeks of negotiations with Interscope, Iglesias recorded and released his first full CD in English, Enrique. The pop album, with some Latin influences, took two months to complete and contained a duet with Whitney Houston called "Could I Have This Kiss Forever" and a cover of the Bruce Springsteen song "Sad Eyes".

"Escape" album

Iglesias followed up in 2001 with the album Escape. Where most of the Latin crossover acts of the previous year experienced some difficulty matching the record sales of their first English language albums, Iglesias actually went on to sell even more.

"7" album

In 2003, Iglesias released his seventh album, which he called 7, the second to be co-written by Iglesias. Among its more 1980s-inspired material, it features the song "Roamer", which he wrote with his friend and longtime guitarist, Tony Bruno. The CD also contained the song "Be Yourself", a song about independence (the chorus talks about how Iglesias' own parents didn't believe he'd ever succeed in his singing career). The first single was the song "Addicted", and was followed closely by a remix of the song "Not in Love", featuring Kelis.

Iglesias released his new album Insomniac on June 12, 2007. The first single was "Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)".

Enrique recently shot his new video for "Tired of Being Sorry" which was released in Europe. Enrique had stated on an appearance on MTV's show TRL that either "Push" or "Somebody's Me" would be the next single for the US and that he and his management would be looking throughout the Internet to choose which would be the more popular choice. In spite of many positive write ups from people on music forums, music Blogs, Youtube posts and many on his official message board stating they'd rather have "Push" it seems that Iglesias' management have chosen to ignore this and instead "Somebody's Me" is being released, as was hinted in an interview which he gave to Univision prior to his appearance at Premios Juventud. It is expected that he will launch "Somebody's Me" simultaneously with "Alguien Soy Yo", which is the same song, but in Spanish, and with some minor edits to improve the translation.
