Here’s a news that will have all the girls screaming in delight. Enrique Iglesias is coming to Indonesia!

As posted on his facebook wall yesterday,

Get ready Indonesia! Enrique is headed to Jakarta on July 21st to perform a special showcase for Miss Teen Indonesia 2011. Terima Kasih!


In case you don’t know who Enrique Iglesias is, (by which I need to ask you, where have you been living all these while??) here’s some background of him, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler (born May 8, 1975), better known as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish pop music singer-songwriter. Iglesias started his musical career on Mexican label Fonovisa. This helped turn him into one of the most popular artists in Latin America and in the Hispanic or Latino market in the United States, and the biggest seller of Spanish language albums of the 1990s. Before the turn of the millennium, he made a crossover into the mainstream English language market, signing a unique multi-album deal with Universal Music Group for an unprecedented US$48,000,000, with Universal Music Latino to release his Spanish albums and Interscope to release English albums. In 2010, he parted with Interscope and signed with another Universal Music Group label, Universal Republic.

Iglesias has sold over 60 million albums worldwide and 40 million singles with a total of 100 million records worldwide, making him one of best selling music artist of all time. Iglesias has had five Billboard Hot 100 top five singles, including two #1s, and holds the record for producing 22 number 1 Spanish-language singles on the Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks. He has also had eight #1 songs on Billboard’s Dance charts, more than any other single male artist (tied with Michael Jackson). Altogether, Iglesias has amassed 52 #1 hits on the various Billboard charts. He has sold over 12 million albums in the US.

That, or you can do what my girlfriend did, who summed him up in 1 word. “HOT!” :p

See u in Jakarta, man!
