Enrique Iglesias‘ 10th studio album Sex + Love hasn’t produced any crossover hits (the heartthrob still reigns supreme on the Latin Airplay chart) but that could all change with a new English version of world music-flavored floorfiller “Bailando”. To help make the song even more accessible, the 39-year-old is joined by dancehall fave Sean Paul. He blends in surprisingly well with Cuban artists Genta De Zona and Descemer Bueno.
The original “Bailando” video has been recycled for the English edit, which isn’t a bad thing. Directed by Alejandro Perez, the exotic blockbuster was filmed in the Dominican Republic and features a flock of extremely talented flamenco dancers. We also get to see Enrique flirt with a sexy lady and play a little football. The Spanish version of the clip has been watched 100 million+ times on YouTube. Expect similar numbers for the extravaganza above.
