Their fans have been waiting for it and have even created mash-ups on the Internet of their individual hits, but now Enrique Iglesias and Kylie Minogue have recorded a new song together that will be included on the Spaniard’s next album, due out in March.
“Beautiful” is a ballad he wrote a year ago and which, finally, he decided to send to Minogue to see if she liked it, Iglesias told Efe.
The sound mix was finished just in time to include in his next and as yet untitled disc.
“If you confirm a collaboration before the song has been written, sometimes it never happens. You put yourself under a certain pressure and it’s not easy. I had written this one a year ago and just three months ago I thought of her because something happened. I was working with someone who had worked with her and who suggested it to me,” Iglesias said.
Soon after receiving the song, the Australian singer called Iglesias. “She told me she loved it and asked me, ‘Why don’t we sing it together?’” the singer said.
“Beautiful” will be added to other songs that have been released as singles from the disc, such as “I’m a Freak,” in which he once more does a duo with Pitbull, “El Perdedor” with Marco Antonio Solis, and “Loco” with Romeo Santos.
“In the last four or five years of my career I’ve realized the importance of putting myself in the studio with other artists. It makes both my discs and my concerts that much richer,” Iglesias said.
