Enrique is the debut English album and fourth studio album by Enrique Iglesias recorded in English and released in November 1999. The album launched two No. 1 U.S Billboard hot 100 hits, Bailamos and then Be with You. The hit single Bailamos has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. To the date the album has sold 1.2 million copies in U.S and over 10 million copies worldwide.

Background[edit]

After the success of his first English crossover single "Bailamos", Iglesias signed a multi-album deal with Interscope and spent the next two months recording the first English album. Knowing that Iglesias was a Bruce Springsteen fan, Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine recommended that Iglesias covered the Springsteen track "Sad Eyes" which had recently been released on Springsteen's collection of rare recordings Tracks. The album also contains a duet with Whitney Houston, titled "Could I Have This Kiss Forever", which Iglesias and Houston recorded separately. Iglesias recorded the song in Los Angeles and Houston in Hamburg, Germany with both of them singing with each other over the phone. They did eventually meet when they re-recorded the track for the single release. The album also included the crossover song "Bailamos" which had previously been on a special edition of Enrique's Cosas del Amor album and the Wild Wild West soundtrack. The album cover was photographed by Pepe Botella .

Commercial performance[edit]

The album debuted at #33 on Billboard 200 albums chart and would go on to be certified Platinum in the United States. The album was a success in Canada too, where it became 5 times Platinum and in Spain 4 times Platinum. It achieved Platinum status in Germany, Italy, Norway and Poland and Gold in Denmark, Switzerland and 30 other countries. The album has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, becoming one of his most successful albums to date.
