La Historia (English: The History) is a 2001 compilation album by singer Ricky Martin. The recordings are in Spanish. The album contains reworkings of two of Martin's early songs: "Fuego Contra Fuego" and "El Amor de Mi Vida".

Chart performance[edit]

La Historia wasn't promoted by any single, did not include any new recordings, and contains only Spanish-language songs.

In the United States, La Historia peaked at number one for five weeks on the Billboard's Top Latin Albums and number eighty-three on the Billboard 200. It was certified 4× Platinum Latin award for shipping 400,000 units in the US, and has sold 220,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan (as of January 2011).[2]

The album also topped the chart in Argentina and Sweden, and was certified Platinum in both countries. Other achievements include peaks at number thirteen in Spain, number sixteen in Italy, number twenty-three in Switzerland, and number thirty-seven in Japan. La Historia was also certified Gold in Spain.

Awards[edit]

La Historia was nominated as the Latin Greatest Hits Album of the Year at the 2002 Latin Billboard Music Awards but lost to Vicente Fernández's Historia de un Ídolo, Vol. 1.
