Read the full interview below:

Q: You’ve performed in Dubai before, and you’ve always been quite popular in this region. What do you make of Middle Eastern fans and audiences?

A: I’m excited to bring the show back to Dubai. The fans there are amazing and have so much energy.

Q: You released two songs this year, “El Baño” with Bad Bunny and “Move To Miami” with Pitbull. Why did those two collaborations appeal to you?

A: Both Pitbull and Bad Bunny just bought something special and unique to each song. It made it feel complete, like it was the perfect touch.

Q: Who’s a current artist you would still like to collaborate with?

A: So many to choose from. I don’t want to ruin any surprises, but there’s some plans for the new year.

Q: Spanish music has been making major waves in the mainstream music scene recently. As someone who has been pushing the Latin pop industry forward for a long time, do you think Spanish-singing artists have an easier time getting their music out there in 2018?

A: I don’t feel it’s particularly easier, but I do feel people are much more embracing to hearing songs in other languages.

Q: Your latest studio album released in 2014. Will you be working on a new album in the future?

A: It’s in the works as we speak.

Q: As a public figure, is privacy something that is important to you?

A: Yes, very much. I like keeping my work life and private life separate as much as I can.

Q: What do you do when you want to unwind and relax?

A: Honestly, I just love to hang out at home in Miami. Hang out by the water, go to my favorite local restaurants and the movies when I can.

Q: Next year will mark 20 years since you released one of your most iconic songs, ‘Bailamos’. How do you reflect on that song and it’s long-lasting legacy now?

A: It takes me back to a great chapter in my life. I still love performing the song at most of my shows.

Q: Finally, it’s one month until the New Year. What are your resolutions for 2019?

A: More songs and more shows.
