After spreading overwhelming anticipation, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS lifts the sheets off his tenth full-length studio album, SEX AND LOVE [Republic Records/Universal Music Latino], in stores and available via all digital retailers tomorrow.
SEX AND LOVE boasts a total of five worldwide #1 hits prior to its official release. Current English-Language single "I'm A Freak" [featuring Pitbull] skyrocketed to #1 on iTunes in twelve territories, while Spanish-Language “El Perdedor” [featuring the legendary Marco Antonio Solis] reached the top spot on iTunes in four countries (its Bachata version reached #1 in three countries), while past singles “Heart Attack” dominated the iTunes charts in 2 countries, “Loco” [featuring Romeo Santos] vaulted to #1 in eight countries (its version featuring India Martinez took the #1 spot in four countries), and "Turn The Night Up" hit the peak in two countries.
There's a lot more to SEX AND LOVE though. The album also features worldwide smash hit Bailando as well as collaborations with Latin urban star Yandel and dance floor icon Kylie Minogue. These cameos contribute to a dynamic and definitive body of work for the singer. It's a sexy, seductive, and soaring romp through pop, dance, and Latin flavors.
Throughout the week, ENRIQUE will be everywhere—quite literally. Yesterday, CBS Sunday Morning ran an in-depth profile on the superstar, an intimate first for the private star and today he's performing on The Today Show's outdoor stage. March 20 sees him as the featured guest on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and the music act on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! In addition, he's scheduled to make the rounds on Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, Extra, E! News and more.
Recently, the artist held a sold out Valentine's Day concert at Madison Square Garden, giving fans a taste of what's to come from the record.
In addition, ENRIQUE was just honored the VEVO "CERTIFIED Award" for reaching 100 million views with "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)" in addition to his previous CERTIFIED videos "I Like It" featuring Pitbull and "Cuando Me Enamoro". This will kick off a special VEVO campaign including exclusive artist and fan-focused original content in honor of the clip.
Since 1995, ENRIQUE has solidified himself as one of the most respected and revered stars worldwide. He remains one of the best-selling Spanish artists in history with sales exceeding 100 million worldwide. To his credit, he's turned out five top 5 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 with two reaching the top spot and 12 number ones on the Dance Club Songs chart—the most for any male performer ever. Moreover, he has an impressive total of seventy number ones across all Billboard charts. Meanwhile, he also is the record holder for most Spanish language singles to hit number one on the Hot Latin Tracks chart, 24 in total. He's got 24 number ones on the Latin Airplay chart and 19 number ones on the Latin Pop Airplay chart. Still, there are even bigger things on the horizon for him.
