    Leah…I got the same press release, HOW are u NOT mentioning that the new Enrique single not only has Lionel Richie re singing the vocals to his hit, “All Night Long”, but is also the lead single off his new cd due on July 6th?! I’m sure any artist who can’t get a video played on MTV these days don’t mind being associated with an Mtv series…but of course there are people here who are going to HATE on anything attached to the Jersey Shore…

      You must get better press releases than we do, Phil! There was no mention of Lionel Ritchie in the one we received this morning, but there’s a stream of the song up now at Z100’s website if you want to hear it; Lionel’s contribution is about six seconds long, towards the end:

    Got this last Wed. actually……

    Los Angeles, CA (April 28, 2010) – As he puts the finishing touches on his brand-new album, multi-platinum Grammy winning singer-songwriter ENRIQUE IGLESIAS is premiering a brand-new Spanish single on Univision.com earlier this week. The song, “Cuando Me Enamoro,” features Latin superstar Juan Luis Guerra and can be heard here: http://www.univision.com/content/content.jhtml?cid=2362402 .

    “Cuando Me Enamoro” was written by Iglesias and Decemer Bueno, who previously collaborated on the 2008 smash hit single “Lloro Por Ti,” which hit number one in 12 countries and sold more than 700,000 digital downloads worldwide.

    On May 4th, Iglesias will release English single “I Like It,” which features special guest appearances by Pitbull and Lionel Richie. The electrifying track sees Richie re-recording lines from his 1983 mega-hit, “All Night Long.” Iglesias will perform the song on July 16th as part of NBC’s “Today Show” summer concert series. “I Like It” is also the first single off the highly anticipated soundtrack to MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” due July 20th.

    Both songs appear on Iglesias’ highly-anticipated new album, which arrives in stores on July 6th through Universal Music. The yet-to-be-titled disc is a star-studded affair featuring additional guest appearances by Usher and Akon. Produced by RedOne (Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige), Mark Taylor (Nelly Furtado, Britney Spears) and Enrique’s long-time collaborator, Carlos Paucar, it’s the first Enrique Iglesias album to feature songs in both Spanish and English.

    Last weekend, Iglesias traveled to the Dominican Republic, where he participated in a benefit concert organized by Juan Luis Guerra to support those affected by the earthquake in Haiti.

    With more than 55 million copies sold worldwide, 19 #1 tracks on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart, unbeatable records, countless awards and thousands of sold out concerts around the globe, Enrique Iglesias is one of the most successful artists in modern music.

    The press release tied into the Billboard Latin Grammys last week, but since you guys don’t cover much on the Latin market, you probably got the standard release today!!

  • wendy

    who cares really the song sucks and so doe enrique iglesias and he just lowered himself to the lowest point attaching himself with THE JERSEY SHORE PLEASE GIVE US A BREAK I WONDER HOW LIONEL RITCHIE IS FEELING NOW

  • Preston

    The DVD was supposed to have come out in February, but I never saw it in the stores. But I’m really looking forward to the soundtrack with the dance and hip-hop heavy lineup. I’d like to see Enrique Iglesias have another hit. Pairing with Pitbull is a good move, a year after his I Know You Want Me hit! And Lil’Jon and Akon on it! Just in time for the hot summer months! I still think that the only clean cut guy in the Jersey Shore group is more interesting than the tan heavy Situation, Pauly D or Snooki, just doesn’t brag about himself too much.

      you guys do realize that this is a no-follow site right? the links you are lavnieg are worthless in that google does see them, but allows you no value for them. Just thought I’d say that because I know what it’s like doing backlinks just to find out that they are no follow. Since the topic here is of a serious nature I wanted to avoid the spam fest. I do appreciate your comments tho.The theme is Dirty Blue 1.43 by Blogtap.net with quite a bit of hand modding.
