Enrique Iglesias Tapped An Emerging R&B Star For An English-Language Version Of His Latest Hit

Can Enrique Iglesias keep up with emerging R&B star Tinashe in this duet?

Iglesias, who originally released “Duele El Corazon” in Spanish, has teamed up with 23-year-old Tinashe for an English-language version of the track. Already a star on her own, Tinashe has more than enough chops to go toe to toe with 41-year-old Iglesias. For Iglesias, duets have always been a great opportunity to work with emerging artists. Tapping Tinashe for the English version to generate interest in the cross-over hit is a no-brainer, but it could have backfired on him. Instead, the energy she brings only escalates Enrique’s already great performance.

The duo not only work well together, they also have more in common than you might expect. Both were destined for stardom from a young age.

Like Enrique, duets are nothing new for Tinashe.

Though Tinashe’s music career blossomed out several marvelous DIY releases (In Case We Die, Reverie and Black Water — albums you must listen to), she has become very familiar with teaming up on projects. In the last few years, Tinashe has dropped tracks with Chris Brown, R. Kelly, and Nick Jonas. For Iglesias’ part, having already worked with Pitbull this year, his duets with reggaeton artist Wisin and Tinashe prove he’s not done messing around.

Like Enrique, Tinashe has worked her talents into television and film. Both have even played roles on “Two And A Half Men.” Tinashe played Celeste Burnett, half-man Jake Harpers’s girlfriend.

Our 5 Favorite Covers on CNCO’s ‘Déjá Vu’ Album: Ricky Martin, Aventura, and more

Our 5 Favorite Covers on CNCO’s ‘Déjá Vu’ Album: Ricky Martin, Aventura, and more

Latin boyband CNCO is back with the new album Déjá Vu out Feb. 5. For their third LP, the guys are covering the Latin pop hits of the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s by artists like Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Aventura, and Ricardo Montaner. Whoever your mom was bumping when it was time to clean the house on Sunday, CNCO has most likely tackled their song.

CNCO is taking on the Latin pop classics on Déjá Vu.

Not only will the fans of the original artists be excited to hear CNCO’s updates, but the group is doing a service to their Gen-Z fans by introducing them to these classics in a refreshing way. The guys – Joel Pimentel, Zabdiel de Jésus, Erick Brian Colon, Richard Camacho, and Christopher Vélez – also push themselves more as singers on these beloved songs to give the best vocal performances of their career.

Déjá Vu is CNCO’s trip through the history of Latin pop music. Latido Music is here to guide you through five of our favorite covers on the album.

“Tan Enamorados”

“Tan Enamorados” was the first song to kick off CNCO’s Déjá Vu era. The guys put a fresh reggaeton spin on the classic by Argentine icon Ricardo Montaner. Every member gets their shine in soaring performances that lift this love song to new heights, especially Pimentel. In the music video, CNCO pays homage to one of the greats that came before them, New Kids on the Block.

“Hero”

“Hero” marks the first time that CNCO has recorded a song that’s completely in English. The guys capture the tenderness of the original by Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias. There’s an especially endearing moment at the end when Colon promises, “I can be your hero.” Save us, Erick! CNCO seemingly channels the Backstreet Boys in the music video.

“Dejaría Todo”

CNCO turns Boricua superstar Chayanne’s “Dejaría Todo” into a tropical bop. The guys come through with charming performances, especially de Jésus, who reps Puerto Rico proudly on the song. Vélez and Colon also are captivating with their breezy interpretations matching the song’s reggae influence. The music video reflects CNCO right now as the guys sit back and just sing from the heart.

“Un Beso”

“Un Beso” is a big moment for Camacho, who proudly reps the Dominican Republic by way of New York City. That’s the same story for the song’s original act, Aventura, who is led by the king of bachata Romeo Santos. CNCO turns the song into a trapchata bop, which is a mix of bachata and trap music. Santos is known for his sensual lyrics and the guys rise to the occasion. They’re quite the smooth operators here.

“El Amor de Mi Vida”

“El Amor de Mi Vida” is a full-circle moment for CNCO. The song is originally by Ricky Martin. The Puerto Rican superstar not only paved the way for them in Menudo, but he also helped put CNCO together on the reality TV series La Banda in December 2015. Now more than five years later and the guys are proudly carrying on his legacy with this hypnotizing update.

Ricky Martin And Enrique Iglesias Are Teaming Up For A New Super Tour

Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias are planning a mega tour to bring their music to the masses. The two heartthrobs are teaming up to treat Canada and the U.S. audiences to a show they will never forget.

Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin are coming together to give their fans a collab they didn’t know they needed.

“I thought this would happen some time, but didn’t know when,” Iglesias told reporters during a press conference.

Young musician Sebastián Yatra will be joining the two musical powerhouses as a special guest for this North American tour.

For Yatra, the chance to perform with Iglesias and Martin is a dream come true.

“If I didn’t have the chance to be onstage, I would buy a ticket to see you,” Yatra said about the show at the press conference. “I visualized this in my life. They are two of my biggest idols.”

Fans cannot wait for the tour to start.

Who doesn’t want to see these three gorgeous men rock the stage? Just think about what you might see when Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin, and Sebastián Yatra each take the stage. It is likely going to be a very sexy show.

However, people are begging the trio to make a trip overseas with their show.

It must be so frustrating to know that this show is happening but you have no chance to participate. Iglesias and Martin will be leaving it all on the stage and there are so many billions of people who don’t even have the chance to see them live.

Of course, people are definitely asking for them to tour Latin America.
