Get some Spanglish on the Net

BORN in Madrid on May 8, 1975, son of Latin legend Julio Iglesias, Enrique Iglesias is no longer living in the shadow of his famous father. Enrique created his own identity after the success of "Bailamos," which was featured in the 1999 Will Smith film 'Wild Wild West.' In spite of the fact that the lyric of "Bailamos" was in Spanglish, it got very famous even among those who didn't know the language. Recently, Enrique Iglesias was spotted with tennis star Anna Kournikova during the shooting for the video for Enrique's newest release 'Escape,' a song that is very famous on music channels. Filmed at the Universal City Walk Mall in LA, the clip features the Russian beauty wearing a beige top and denim hipsters. Known as one of the most beautiful athletes in the world, she has already appeared in a cameo role alongside Jim Carrey in 'Me, Myself And Irene.' Enrique has sold over 25 million albums in seven years and scored a Grammy for 'Best Latin Performer.' All of which puts him well on the way to catching up with his father's world record of 250 million in sales (The Beatles haven't out-sold Julio).
