"I wouldn't change anything. I've made mistakes, but thanks to those mistakes, I've learned." — Enrique Iglesias
- Born Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler May 8, 1975 in Madrid, Spain.
- Enrique Iglesias hit it big with his 1995 debut self-titled album, which peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart. He became one of the top Latin crossover artists in the U.S. with the release of the 1999 single "Bailamos," which made it into the blockbuster action flick Wild Wild West starring GRAMMY winner Will Smith. The single topped the Billboard Hot 100 and sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.
- Iglesias earned his first GRAMMY at the 39th GRAMMY Awards for Best Latin Pop Performance for Enrique Iglesias.
