Cosas del Amor (English: Regarding Love) is the third Spanish studio album from Latin pop singer Enrique Iglesias. In 1999, the album received a nomination for Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance, but was beaten by "Tango", recorded by Enrique's father Julio Iglesias. The album yielded two number-one singles on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart: "Esperanza" and "Nunca Te Olvidaré". The third single was canceled in favor of his first English language hit single "Bailamos", which was included on the soundtrack for the movie Wild Wild West. A video for the track "Ruleta Rusa" was filmed, and the song was released as a promo single in Argentina. The album debuted at number-one in the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart in the week of 10 October 1998, staying at pole position for five weeks in 1998 and three weeks in 1999. In the Billboard 200, the album debuted and peaked at number 64. Nunca te Olvidare served as the opening theme for the novela of the same name.The album sold 4 million copies worldwide.
