Even if you once sang about “Livin’ La Vida Loca,” owning two Manhattan apartments may be just a bit too much loco.

Pop singer Ricky Martin — and more recently Broadway actor and children’s book author — has listed his condo at 40 Bond St. for $8.3 million, according to The Wall Street Journal. He bought the home for $5.7 million in 2007 under an LLC. The Journal notes that the same LLC is tied to Martin’s other New York apartment, which he bought for $5.9 million last year.

The Bond Street apartments are in a cast-iron building developed into a luxury condos. Martin’s home is a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom unit with 2,637 square feet of living space. High ceilings further enhance the 11-foot-high windows in the living room. “Austrian smoked oak” floors extend from the living space into the kitchen and master suite. On-site amenities include a 24/7 doorman and gym.

Martin’s new place on the Upper East Side is a little bit bigger, measuring 3,147 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. He shares the apartment with his partner, Carlos Gonzalez Abella, and their twin sons.
