20 Años is an album by Mexican singer Luis Miguel released on May 18, 1990. The album was produced by Juan Carlos Calderón, who had worked on the two previous albums by Luis Miguel, and was a massive success across Latin-America, Spain, and with Hispanic listeners in the United States. Almost all the tracks of the album were played on the radio, nevertheless, the official singles released were: "Entrégate", "Tengo Todo Excepto a Tí", "Amante del Amor", "Hoy El Aire Huele a Tí" and "Será Que No Me Amas". It received a nomination for a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album and for Pop Album of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Awards.[2]

This album was the album that confirmed the success that Luis Miguel had reached with his last album Busca Una Mujer. The album broke the record in Mexico of most copies sold in one weekend (600,000 copies during the release weekend).
