Overview

Back when Enrique Iglesias was trying to make it in the biz, he sang under the name Enrique Martinez so as not to be accused of riding the coattails of his famous father, Julio. Today, those worries are well behind him. Iglesias is one of the most successful recording artists in Latin America and, after reaching No. 1 on the U.S. charts with his WILD WILD WEST soundtrack ballad "Bailamos," a rising star north of the pop border as well. On his first English-language album he's joined by Whitney Houston on the soft, elegant "Could I Have This Kiss Forever," setting the tone for a disc geared to satisfy fans of his father and the Backstreet Boys alike. Not as interested in livin' la vida loca as his top competitor, Ricky Martin, Enrique finesses a romantic, folk-inflected lite rock that often suggests Chris Isaak at his most elegiac. The reprised "Bailamos" and the album's first single, "Rhythm Divine," aren't tailored to move bodies so much as melt hearts, which they obviously will. Still, whether Enrique is covering Bruce Springsteen's "Sad Eyes," mixing spindly Latin rhythms with lush, florid melodies on the genteel "I'm Your Man," or throwing a little salsafied fun into "Alabao," he seems set on coming from behind to reign as the king of the Latin pop explosion. And ENRIQUE suggests he may even be more than that.
