Enrique Iglesias recently spoke with The Daily Star about his new remix to “Súbeme La Radio” featuring Matt Terry.
Enrique told me: “When I heard Matt sing in Spanish it’s crazy. You wouldn’t know he was English. He doesn’t have an accent. You can tell when he was singing he has that Spanish in him.”
Enrique explained: “I knew who he was because of X Factor of course. I watch a lot of those shows.
“We thought it would be cool. He has his fanbase. What I normally like to do in these collaborations is just try it out. Artists need to feel comfortable singing the songs. I have done collaborations before and a lot of times they don’t turn out how you expect them to.”
Enrique added: “I definitely want to help, for sure. Once I collaborate with someone and the vibe is good you keep going. And even if this one hadn’t worked, I would still try and try until we got it right.”
He said: “It’s tough to be an artist and get signed to a record company these days. To me, whether you get signed because you are on X Factor or because you walk into the Sony building, it’s not any different.”
Happy to give it a new spin, the star explained: “I like doing things twice as long as it’s done correctly.
“I’m looking at the charts and it’s close to the Top 10 on iTunes already. I think Matt Terry did a great job.”
“It’s a song about the ups and downs that all of us go through in life. “Forget all the bad sh*t. Let’s go and have a good time.”
