Quizás (English: Maybe) is an Enrique Iglesias album recorded in Spanish in 2002. The singer won a Latin Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Album for this recording in 2003.

Making of Quizás[edit]

Enrique Iglesias wrote or co-wrote every track on the album and co-produced several of the tracks with the exception of "Tres Palabras" and the cover version of "La Chica de Ayer" originally recorded by Nacha Pop. Iglesias was the executive producer of the album alongside best friend Andres Restrepo. The title track of the album talks about Iglesias' strained relationship with his father. The album was released on September 17, 2002.

Chart success[edit]

Quizas topped the Billboard Latin Chart debuting at #1 and reached number 12 on the Billboard 200 album chart, the highest position for a Spanish album at the time and fastest selling Spanish album in five years. All three singles released from the album ("Mentiroso", "Quizás" and "Para Qué La Vida") topped Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks Chart. In Spain however the first single "Mentiroso" was not released. In its place the song "La Chica de Ayer" was released and topped their singles chart as well as the album. The album also entered at 200 on the UK album charts, the highest entry for a Spanish album that year as well as performing well across Latin America going platinum in counties like Mexico and Argentina.
