Artist Countdown: Enrique Iglesias Top 30 Hits 6pm ET @enrique305

Enrique-IglesiasEnrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler(born May 8, 1975), simply known as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish-American singer-songwriter, actor, and record producer. Iglesias started his career in the mid-1990s on an American Spanish Language record label Fonovisa which helped turn him into one of the biggest stars in Latin America and the Hispanic Market in the United States becoming the biggest seller of Spanish-language albums of that decade. By the turn of the millennium he made a successful crossover into the mainstream market and signed a multi-album deal with Universal Music Group for an unprecedented US $68,000,000 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 Records. In late 2012, Republic Records was revived after eleven years of being dormant, shuttering Universal Republic Records and taking all the artists from that label to Republic Records, including Iglesias. In 2001, he released his single Hero, which he later performed to commemorate the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

Iglesias has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best selling Spanish language artists of all time. He has had five Billboard Hot 100 top five singles, including two number-ones, and holds the record for producing 25 number-one Spanish-language singles on the Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks. He has also had 13 number-one songs on Billboard’s Dance charts, more than any other single male artist. Altogether, Iglesias has amassed more than 70 number-one rankings on the various Billboard charts. Billboard has called him The King of Latin Pop and The King of Dance.  – Wikipedia

Feature LP: Elton John Greatest Hits 1970 – 2002 – 9pm ET

Elton_John_-_Greatest_Hits_1970-2002_album_coverGreatest Hits 1970–2002 is a career-spanning collection of Elton John’s biggest hits up to 2002. It was released in an alternate 3-CD version (as opposed to the usual 2-CD) and slightly different versions in the United States and the United Kingdom.
The album debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at number 12 on November 30, 2002. It spent 67 weeks on the chart. It was certified Gold and Platinum on 13 December 2002, 2x Platinum on 5 March 2003, 3x Platinum on 2 August 2004 and 4x and 5x Platinum on 14 February 2011 by the RIAA.

It was the first Elton John compilation released since the time that PolyGram, which had controlled the pre-1976 Elton John catalogue, was sold to Universal Music Group, which controlled the post-1976 recordings. Prior to 1992, rights to John’s music had been complicated as they shifted between various companies. UMG now owns worldwide distribution rights to all of John’s music, while sharing overall ownership with John himself.

The CD omits the #1 Adult Contemporary hit “Mama Can’t Buy You Love” from The Thom Bell Sessions (top 10 in 1979).
