He remained with the group for five years before breaking out on his own with a solo career, ultimately selling over 70 million albums. Not only is Ricky Martin one of the best-selling Latin artists of all time, but he is also considered one of the most influential Latin artists of all time. He continues to tour with electrifying live performances.
Livin' la Vida Loca
"Livin' la Vida Loca" is not only the song that launched Ricky Martin into worldwide success and brought on the Latin pop explosion of 1999, but it is also a magnificent metaphor for the life of Ricky Martin himself. Born in Puerto Rico in 1971 to an accountant and a psychologist, Ricky Martin is the second youngest of his six siblings. He began singing at the age of 6; although he sang into a wooden spoon that masqueraded as a microphone and his only audience was his family, that didn't hold him back for long. By age 9, Ricky Martin began appearing in Puerto Rican commercials, and by the age of 11, he had starred in a total of 11 commercials. After a small taste of fame, Ricky Martin joined Menudo and began working on his music career. Five years later, Ricky Martin quit the band, finished high school and moved to New York City. Ricky Martin is currently "Livin' la Vida Loca" in California with his three children while pursuing his interests in singing, acting, writing, politics and humanitarian work.
