“Senor DJ, ya muchas gracias,” shouted a jovial Enrique Iglesias at the Billboard Latin Music Conference’s Superstar Q&A. His remark drew a roar of approval from the hundreds attending the Spanglish Q&A session with Billboard’s Executive Director of Latin Content & Programming Leila Cobo. But what really took the crowds' breath away was news that he would be touring in the fall with Pitbull and Columbian singer J Balvin. Exact details of the tour, however, were not given.
A funny, relaxed and forthcoming Iglesias delighted the predominately-female crowd during the 30-minute sit down with insight into his shying away from fame, even though he knew at an early age he wanted to somehow follow in the footsteps of his famous father, Julio Iglesias, to his solid, yet quirky, relationship with Cuban songwriter Desemer Bueno, who co-wrote “Bailiando”, the star’s most recent hit with Gente de Zona, despite spending “eight years in the can”, according to Iglesias.
