We recently had a exclusive interview with Enrique Iglesias and spoke about his unequaled career and how he balances fame with family life
Since your first album you had an incomparable success but you can say that your artistic career was reborn after “Bailando.” What does this song mean to you?
I can say that I feel very fortunate to continue counting on the support of the fans, of my team, and to find those songs that are made memorable. You’re right, “Bailando” was a watershed in my career. It opened a new way of seeing and making music. That process never ends because our job is to always be one step ahead with current music.
You’re still working with Gente de Zona. Where and how was this friendship born?
I feel very happy with everything that is happening with them and if we were to make them know in Cuba that already leaves me satisfied. They are people with a lot of heart and surely we will do many things together.
Let’s talk about your presentation at Festival Presidente 2017. What can readers and fans look forward to?
My heart is on the stage. To return to Dominicana, is to return home. They know me from the beginning and I can not stop coming back, it is always an experience full of joy and satisfactions.
Now let’s explain to people about your philanthropic work with Save The Children. Is it true that the idea came after you suffered an accident with the drone?
Correct, the root of the incident I suffered with the drone in Tijuana, the degree of how scared I was and the degree of emergency to find a doctor and others. We thought about how we could make this experience something positive for people with no resources, so we arrived at Save The Children. An organization that does titanic work for all the children of the world and with the shirts that we sell online and at the concerts we are touching many lives and that personally is my biggest personal challenge, to continue making and donating more to make a difference.
You have a relationship of more than 15 years with the Russian Tennis Player, Anna Kournikova and your fans are dying to know when you will have children. Can you tell us something about your love life and family to your fans?
My sentimental life is very good with Anna. I’m still in love with her and my fans are happy with my current state, to say more is to repeat myself. We are happy as we are.
You started as pop artists singing ballads but at this time you have adapted to the urban genre and you are one of the greatest exponents of this. What sounds do you want to venture into your next album? Is there something getting ready right now?
(Laughter) Of course there is much more to come. We have to change genre and indeed we are preparing several songs with quite interesting fusions. I hope you’ll be pleased.
