Enrique Iglesias is a Spanish-born singer, songwriter and music producer who has achieved success in both the Latin music and US mainstream music markets. His first album, Enrique Iglesias, was released in 1995 and won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance. By 1999, Iglesias had started his successful crossover to US mainstream music and released a self-titled album, which was his first that was completely in English. Iglesias appeared in the 2000 NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show. Today, Iglesias continues his bilingual career with songs recorded with Bad Bunny and Pitbull as well as live performances around the world, including at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Martinez or Iglesias
While it is true that he is the son of Latin music legend Julio Iglesias, he did not want his father to be aware of his desire for a music career. He also wanted to be sure his music career was based on his talent and not his family name, which is why he began his career using the stage name of Enrique Martinez. Enrique borrowed money from the family nanny and recorded a demo of three songs. With his demo tape and a story that he was a singer from Guatemala, Enrique generated enough interest from a record label to make his first album. When Enrique was making his first steps into US mainstream music, he got a boost from another unlikely source. Will Smith had attended an Enrique Iglesias concert, and Smith asked him to write a song for the movie Wild Wild West. That song is "Bailamos."
