Though he is the son of the most successful Spanish singer of all time, Enrique Iglesias' rise to the top of the Latin and US pop charts was the result of his own efforts. Breaking through in the mid-90s, Iglesias continues to release chart-topping hits including his most recent effort, the bilingual Spanish/English album, Euphoria. Enrique Iglesias tour dates were announced earlier in 2011 and have the Latin pop sensation touring Europe throughout the summer.
Iglesias hit the big time with a succession of #1 Latin tracks; in fact, all five of his singles from his debut album, Enrique Iglesias, hit #1 on Billboard's Latin Songs survey. The album was certified gold in the US and won Iglesias the 1996 Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album. Riding the momentum of his debut, Iglesias quickly released his 1997 sophomore set, Vivir, which ironically dethroned his father's album, Tango, at the top of Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart. The set released another slew of hits, with the first three singles hitting the pole position on the Latin Tracks survey, giving Iglesias the distinction of being the first Latin artist to have all eight of his first singles hit #1. Eager to get on the road to capitalize on his chart success, Enrique Iglesias tour dates had the singer touring major stadiums in sixteen countries throughout Summer 1997.
Iglesias released his third album, Cosas del Amor, in 1998 and despite releasing two #1 singles, the album's commercial impact was tepid in comparison to its predecessor's. Iglesias did not waste anytime releasing more material, and this time the impact of his fourth album, Enrique, would have him transcending into the English arena for the first time. The album's debut single, "Bailamos," was an international smash that catapulted him to the top of Billboard's Hot 100 in the Summer of 1998. The album went on to be certified double-platinum in the United States and Iglesias emerged as Latin pop's newest crossover. Following the success of his first English-language album, Iglesias quickly released his second full length English album, Escape, in 2001 which featured the massive single, "Hero." The album trumped sales of its predecessor and was certified 3x platinum by the RIAA.
In support of his newly found English-language success, the ambitious Enrique Iglesias concert schedule had him traveling to fifty sold-out venues in sixteen countries. The tour was so successful that more tour dates were announced, and the second leg, "Don't Turn off the Lights," was capped off in 2002 with a duo of sold out shows in New York's famed Madison Square Garden. Iglesias returned to the Spanish arena the following year with the release of his fourth Spanish language album, Quizas, which sold over a million copies in its first week of release. The album spawned three more #1 singles and gave Iglesias his 16th #1 Hot Latin Track single, garnering him the distinction of having the most #1 singles in the genre. Iglesias followed this album with the English language, 7, which marked his seventh offering. While the album was met with lukewarm commercial success, Enrique Iglesias embarked on his most ambitious concert schedule yet.
In 2007, Iglesias released his eighth album, Insomniac, which contained the #1 Billboard Hot 100 single, "Do You Know." The Enrique Iglesias concert schedule, in support of the album, had the singer touring the world, but was most notable for its stop in Damascus, Syria-- making Iglesias the first westerner to perform in that country for three decades. Iglesias keeps on churning out the hits and in 2010 he returned to the top ten of the Billboard US album charts with his latest release, Euphoria. The album has the distinction of being Iglesias' first bilingual album, with half the tracks in Spanish and the other half in English. Tracks in both languages have made an impact on the singles charts, two English language tracks, "I Like it" and "Tonight I'm Lovin' You," charted in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100, while "No Me Digas Que No," hit #1 on the Latin Pop songs survey. In support of this album, Enrique Iglesias tour dates have been announced, with the singer touring Europe throughout the summer. Whether you are a fan of the Latin pop-star's most successful Spanish releases or you prefer his crossover material, make sure you keep up to date with the Enrique Iglesias concert schedule.

The Evolution of Robin Thicke, the second solo album from the critically acclaimed, Award-winning song writer/producer/singer, brings to life the stories and emotions of the last two tumultuous years of his life. With a voice of purity, passion and soulfulness, he weaves tales of love, loss, temptation, redemption and finding hope when all the odds are stacked against you. “My greatest desire with this album was to write songs that were completely honest and sing them with the emotion I was feeling when I wrote them, so that whoever listens to my music is brought as close to my experiences and life.”
With this intention, Robin created “Lost Without U,” the infectious sleeper hit of the spring. An instant classic, this song is based on a true life experience of missing his woman. This song has taken on a life of its own and has already propelled the album to platinum status, and into the Top 10 of Billboard magazine’s Top 200 Album Chart and R&B Album Chart. “Lost Without U” was the #1 R&B song on the Billboard chart for 11 weeks and was #1 for 16 weeks at the Urban AC. In addition Robin has been nominated for 2 BET Awards, Best Male R&B Artist and Viewer’s Choice. His recent tours with Keyshia Cole, India Arie and John Legend have solidified his reputation as one of R&B’s premier live singers. Robin recently performed his hit song “Lost Without U” on the Oprah Show, and he captivated the Oprah audience so much that she asked him to come back for a second show two weeks later. After that, the album jumped over 100% in sales. Coming up, Robin will perform in Amsterdam on June 19th at the Paradiso and in Paris on July 3rd at the Bataclan. Following these performances is his highly anticipated tour with Beyonce’.
The album shows Robin’s range as a singer, and as a songwriter. From the plaintive plea of “2 The Sky” to the laidback groove of “Got 2 Be Down” (featuring Faith Evans), from the pain of “Lonely World” to the unabashed hope and encouragement of “Can U Believe,” The Evolution of Robin Thicke reveals all sides of the man.
Robin taught himself to play piano at the age of twelve and by the age of fourteen, he could play anything he heard on the radio. At sixteen, with no formal training, Robin began professionally writing and producing music for recording artists like Brandy and Brian McKnight. As a songwriter and producer, he has amassed dozens of gold and platinum records with artists including Usher, Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera and has won a recording award for his participation on Usher’s Confessions Album…but now it is Robin’s turn to show what he can do as a singer, as his own man. Last year Pharrell Williams signed Robin to his label, Star Trak Records, and recorded the single “Wanna Love You Girl,” which immediately became a club hit and attracted the attention of radio and club DJs across the country.
Reflective, redemptive, passionate and etched with undeniable soul, The Evolution of Robin Thicke is an imaginative and heartfelt album that announces the arrival of the next triple threat in music.
JASON DERULO (pronounced day-ru-lo)
The path to perfection is a humble road, but one that longevity will pave”. At the tender age of 19, Florida native Jason Derulo has already experienced feats that many veterans in the game aspire to. A multi-talented artist/songwriter on the brink of stardom, Jason has contributed his talents to the likes of Lil Wayne, Sean Kingston, Betty Wright and Danity Kane to name a few.
As a performer he has shared the stage with artist such as, T-Pain, Akon and Mims. His strong stage performances have drawn rave reviews, and have made him a well sought after entertainer. A winner of countless awards, Jason also gained major notoriety by winning the 2006 Apollo Season Finale Grand Championship.
After a long courtship by many record labels, Jason has teamed up with multi-platinum music producer J.R Rotem (Sean Kingston, Rihanna, Rick Ross, Leona Lewis, Dr. Dre etc.) and his label Beluga Heights/Warner Bros. Records, and is currently in Los Angeles completing his highly anticipated debut album due this summer.
Jason’s first official single titled “Whatcha Say”, hit the radio in the summer of 2009 and became an immediate sensation, jumping from 54 to number on the Billboard charts in a matter of months. It supported sales of his self-titled, debut album, as well as performances on Lady Gaga's infamous The Monster Ball Tour.
Just a year later, Derulo released his sophomore album, Future History, an ambitious, dancey album that featured the singles "Don't Wanna Go Home". Unfortunately, while rehearsing dance moves for a tour to promote the album, Derulo broke a vertebrae and was forced to cancel all tour dates.
However, he was in top form upon the release of his 2013 album, Tattoos, which was supported by the single "The Other Side". The album was initially only released internationally, and US fans only received an EP before the full album was released in 2014 under the title Talk Dirty. The album was completely reformatted for US audiences, including new tracks.
With incredible label support, unparalleled talent and God’s Blessing, Jason Derulo is about to take the music world by storm!
