Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias said in San Juan, before a concert featured in the inauguration of the first Microsoft store on the Caribbean island, that he uses a “magic room” in his home to compose his music.
Iglesias, son of the legendary artist Julio Iglesias, told reporters Thursday that he is composing songs for his next album, noting that other artists will very possibly collaborate on the project.
“At home I have a room where I have written tunes like “Lloro por Ti” (I Cry for You), “Hero,” “I Like It” and “Nunca Te Olvidare” (I’ll Never Forget You). It’s a room I have there that has a certain magic,” Iglesias said before giving a private concert for some 2,500 fans at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in the Puerto Rican capital.
Iglesias, 37, said he is “trying to write good songs” for his next disc, so he won’t disappoint his followers or get bad reviews.
“I don’t want to write songs that I’m not happy with because in the end, I have to promote the singles and the discs and for that reason I prefer to write at home and be with my love,” said the boyfriend of Russian tennis player Anna Kournikova.
He also said he hopes to include collaborations with other stars on his next disc, as he has done on previous occasions in the productions of other artists, like Puerto Rican reggaeton stars Wisin & Yandel and Daddy Yankee.
