Wiki

Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler (born May 8, 1975), better known as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish pop music singer-songwriter. Iglesias started his musical career on Mexican label Fonovisa. This helped turn him into one of the most popular artists in Latin America and in the Hispanic or Latino market in the United States, and the biggest seller of Spanish language albums of that decade. Before the turn of the millennium, he made a crossover into the mainstream English language market, signing a unique multi-album deal with Universal Music Group for an unprecedented US$48,000,000, with Universal Music Latino to release his Spanish albums and Interscope to release English albums. In 2010, he parted with Interscope and signed with another Universal Music Group label, Universal Republic.

Iglesias has had five Billboard Hot 100 top five singles including two #1s, and holds the record for producing 22 number 1 Spanish-language singles on the Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks. Up until the release of his latest album, Euphoria, in 2010, he had sold more than 55 million albums in both English and Spanish. He has also had eight #1 songs on Billboard's Dance charts, more than any other single male artist. Altogether Iglesias has amassed 52 #1 hits on the various Billboard charts.

Iglesias was born in Madrid, Spain, the third and youngest child of singer Julio Iglesias and socialite and magazine journalist Isabel Preysler. His mother is a Filipina of partial Spanish/Basque descent, and his father is of Galician Spanish ancestry and once claimed to be partially Jewish. His parents divorced in 1988, and the following year Julio moved to Miami, Florida, in the U.S. to continue with his musical career.
