Enrique Iglesias Releases Latest Album “Final (Vol. 1)”

It’s the final countdown for Enrique Iglesias

The 46-year-old Spanish singer, songwriter, record producer, philanthropist and actor has released his latest album Final (Vol. 1).

Enrique Iglesias Iglesias has released the album seven years after Sex & Love. 

Part one of his FINAL album, Iglesias has previously announced could be the first half of his last one.

The 11-track set includes previously released hits that date back to 2015, including the Nicky Jam-assisted “El Perdón,” to his latest summer anthem “Me Pasé” with Farruko.

As for the five never-before-heard tracks on the album, standouts include “Te Fuiste,” a team-up with Myke Towers produced by Ovy on the Drums, and “Pendejo,” released alongside a music video.

“Te Fuiste” starts slow with prickly guitars but quickly builds momentum powered by a reggaeton beat, just in time for Myke Towers’ entrance.

Meanwhile, “Pendejo” finds a regretful Iglesias wanting to rekindle a relationship with a girl who had broken his heart.

According to Iglesias, there will be a second part to FINAL.

“It might be my final album,” Iglesias said during an Instagram Live earlier this month. “It’s not something that I have been thinking about for the past few months. It’s something that I have been thinking about for the past few years. There’s going to be Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, but they’re final. I’m in that moment in my life, that chapter in my life, where I think it’s the right time to put it out and I’ve been thinking about this since 2015.”

Iglesias’ urban-flamenco party anthem featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona is now the first Spanish-language song to reach one billion views online.

“Thank you guys so much for getting Bailando Spanish version to 1 BILLION views. Incredible!!!,” said the “I Like It” singer on Instagram.

Iglesias is currently on his Sex & Love tour, which, to date, has attracted over one million people around the world and counting.

Up next he’s nominated for two Premios Tu Mundo, in the favorite pop artist category and “party-starting song” for “El Perdón,” his other mega-hit with Nicky Jam. A new bilingual version of the song, titled “Forgiveness,” aims to get it a comparable amount of play as its Spanish-language counterpart.

Iglesias will probably have more to toast to in the future. His longtime manager Fernando Giaccardi, who made it onto the 2015 Billboard Latin Power Players List, recently said of his superstar client, “With Enrique, it’s never enough. It’s like, ‘Great, we did this. Now what?’ ”

Iglesias has been placing hit after hit at the top of the chart for 19 years, logging his first when he was only 19 years old with “Si Tu Te Vas.”  The track spent eight weeks at the peak, and was only the start of his illustrious chart history.  Since then, he has ruled with smashes like “Enamorado Por Primera Vez” (12 weeks in 1997), “Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)” (11 weeks in 2007), and “Cuando Me Enamoro” (17 weeks in 2010), among a slew of others.
