Enrique Iglesias may have a famous father (Julio), but this Latino superstar has paved his own musical path for more than two decades. He’s brought his bilingual sound to fans around the world, securing a spot as one of the best-selling Spanish artists of all time.
Iglesias was 20 when he released his first album in 1995. It was a major hit and not just with fans; the self-titled album earned the newcomer a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album. Since then, the singer-songwriter, who was born in Spain, has gone on to release 10 albums.
His incredible success has only grown over the years. Widely known as the “King of Latin Pop,” Iglesias holds the record for most Spanish-language singles on Billboard’s Hot Latin charts, with a whopping 27 No. 1 songs. Megahits, such as “Bailamos,” “Be With You,” and “Hero,” make sure he still sells out concerts. He also holds the most No. 1 recordings on Billboard’s Dance Music chart, beating out Michael Jackson (!) and Prince (!!). Now those are some bragging rights.
His musical bromance with Miami-born artist Pitbull brought Iglesias to a whole other level of stardom. This dream team has released eight songs, and they have a new hit on their hands with “Move to Miami.” The dance jam is on fire! Iglesias’s 13 million Instagram followers are totally supporting the track by sharing videos of their sizzling dance moves. Guys, girls, kids, and even his partner and tennis star Anna Kournikova are rocking out to the tune.
Iglesias and Kournikova have been together for 16 years. The pair welcomed twins in December. Can you guess where they were born? Miami, of course!
