There are very few acts who are so successful as Enrique Iglesias. He's loved by innumerable crowds of teenager girls and by stars like Madonna or Will Smith. He has 241 golden and 132 platinum records. He has become a star not only in Europe or South America, but also in Asia √ especially Thailand, where two of his songs where translated into Thai. Three Mexican soap operas are dubbed after the titles of his songs.

Enrique always tried hard not to let anyone know that he's the son of Julio Iglesias. It was not too difficult, because his father never paid much attention to Enrique. Iglesias Sr. found out that his son was into pop-music only after Enrique's debut album had topped all charts.

Hit Bailamos from the third Enrique's album COSAS DEL AMOR became his first song written in English. It appeared in the soundtrack to Wild Wild West. Bailamos became Enrique's first single that topped Billboard Top 100. After this Iglesias Jr. has become a real world star. Seeing such a reaction on an English song, Enrique has recorded this album, where there are 14 English tracks. Here you can find all kinds of songs √ his usual latino, soft-rock, ballads and even r&b and country-elements.
