Enrique Iglesias the brand, was born.
Songs/ Albums/ Career Success
Enrique knew that his father was a very successful Spanish musician, and this would have made it easy for him to climb through the career ladder, just by having his surname. This was what Enrique ensured not to do. He was determined to succeed on his own without the influence of the ‘Iglesius’ factor, that is why his first cassette was recorded under the name Enrique Martinez. He secretly borrowed recording money from his nanny, whom he really adored. She had literally raised him considering that his father was always on world tours due to his career.
In 1995, his first album became a hit, even to the chagrin of his parents. Enrique was also shocked at the success of his self titled album. In Portugal alone, he went gold in less than 7 days, while worldwide he sold more than 6 million copies.

- The Grammy Award for Best Latin Performer
- The Billboard Award for Artist of the Year
- The Artist Award for Artist of the Year
- The Artist Award for Album of the Year
- American Awards
In 1997, his song Vivir also became a huge hit which saw him sell more than 5 million copies. This made him launch his first world tour.
In 1999, he made a serious career breakthrough when he released one of his bestseller singles Bailamos, “We Dance.” This song topped the American charts for a long time and was even featured in a popular film Wild Wild West starring Actor Will Smith.

In 2001, his success was unrivaled, when he released another English Album Escape, which featured other English songs Like Hero, and Doesn’t Turn off the Lights.
With all these success stories, Enrique has maintained a separate identity from his father’s success. He struggled to be where he is. In fact, grapevine says that the two are not very close, which his father rubbished, maintaining that he is very proud of his son. Who wouldn’t be proud of a successful son anyway?
Just like the beautiful girls in his raunchy music videos, Enrique has had a very vibrant love life with several women. He does not have a particular taste, as all his lovers looked different, in all shapes and sizes. He has, however, be described as a monogamous man, as he has been with a long term girlfriend Russian tennis star Anna Kournikova, since 2001. They are not officially married though. She was her love interest in his video Escape, in 2001, of which they started dating later, to date, and even had twins in the year 2017. They have tried to keep their relationship low key.
His other girlfriends were Emma Kearney, Yamila Diaz, Cynthia Kirchner, who was also his video vixen for Don’t Turn Off the Lights, Jennifer Hewit who was also in his video, Hero, Christina Aguilera in 1998, Sofia Vergara from 1997 to 2000 and of course Samantha Torres in 1997.
Enrique has kept his love life so low key it is difficult to find him trapped in scandals. He is however rumored to have said he cannot marry his long term girlfriend Russian tennis star Anna Kournikova whom he has dated for almost 20 years. They have also cheated on each other. Apart from speaking publicly about his penis and how girls want to have sex with him, and of course kissing a female fan on stage, there isn’t much juicy gossip about him.
