Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias, currently on tour in the United States with Jennifer Lopez, told Efe on Monday that he would like to record some “cool, Latin” sounds with her.
Iglesias and Lopez are playing to full houses at every concert and though they don’t sing together in their presentations, the Spaniard said they’re likely to do so not far down the road.
The singer told Efe via e-mail that the idea doesn’t spring from “anything in particular, we’ve recorded several things together but it must be like Jennifer says, that I’m too much of a perfectionist - but I’m positive we’ll do a number together and may it be soon.”
“Meanwhile we’re really enjoying the tour,” the 37-year-old singer said after the two concerts he gave this weekend with Lopez in Newark, New Jersey.
Iglesias is nothing averse to musical duos as exemplified by those he has done with a number of top Latino and Anglo artists, being one of the first to do crossover performances in the English-language market.
The singer said that collaborations, like the songs he sang with Christina Aguilera, Lionel Richie, Aventura and Pitbull, “should come about organically - I’m working on several ideas now but they’re still in the embryo stage.”
Iglesias and J.Lo plan to perform in Chicago, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Miami and other cities, before wrapping up the tour in Orlando, Florida, on Sept. 2.
