With some 33,9 million albums sold, Enrique Iglesias can claim one of the strongest sales total by any Latin act. His sales in Latin countries – not just Hispanic countries, like Spain and the majority of Latin America, but also Brazil and Portugal, a bit less Italy and France – are outstanding. Whilst his peak days are gone since more than a decade, in recent years he has kind of reinvented himself with several high profile collaborations and huge reggaeton influences which, altogether, took his music to newer generations.

In the rest of the world, his English speaking stuff has generally done very well, especially at the time of Enrique and, most notably, Escape, his biggest album in terms of pure sales with 9,1 million sold and a strong global appeal.

USA has brought massive success to his English albums but, considering the strong Spanish community there, his early album have also been able to rack up great numbers, although largely downgraded by Soundscan which wasn’t scanning specialized Latin retailers at the time.

Overall, he accumulates 21 years of great and consistent success. A success, of course, not limited to the album format. Let’s now see what else he achieved through other formats!

You are ignoring Enrique !! The newspapers have not been updated since 2016 !! And all its numbers are old!!!!

Asher Salvatore

Actually Including Singles his worldwide sales rise upto 160m+ or some!!!

Cuz he has sold 40m “SINGLE” in 2010s alone and im talking about Certified units only!!! Lords know under the table ones


I think you didn’t saw the complete article. He has 33,9 million studio albums sold + 5,3 compilation albums sold +49 million digital singles sold + 3,4 million records with equivalent streaming = He sold around 91 million copies worldwide.

Asher Salvatore

Ummmm, thats an old news bro…. 220!!!
Only bailando alone sold 8 million!!! In 2014
And its 2020 now!!!
Each of his new song has hundreds of streams on Spotify!!!


streming sales mean almost nothing in the total, when someone reach 750 million views it translate to 500,000 copies.

Asher Salvatore

Well im trying so hard to not to be disrespectful!!!.
But lmao “150 streams on Spotify equals to 1 sale” lmaooo
Therefore as example ”
Duele El Corazon” has
(448m) streams on Spotify
(Not including) Apple Streams
(not including) Shazam or deezer
(Not Incuding) Digital dowloads

On the rate of 150 steams per 1 sale!!
484m. Steams = 3.2million sales!!!
And thats “ONLY” his Spotify sale!
So lmaooo piss off!!.

Get ur facts right!!! Rather than deciving people just to look smart

Asher Salvatore

Could you make Toni Braxton please


I would love to see an article about his father, Julio Iglesias. His discography is very broad and he has records in many languages, but I know that his sales are very inflated. It would be interesting to discover if he is truly the most successful Latin artist. Maybe his son is bigger than him.


I have a friend who works in Sony Music!The numbers are correct!


Yes, all fanatics have great friends on labels who provide them fanciful numbers. The funny part is that Enrique has released albums for FonoVisa, Universal, Interscope, but I suppose Sony have hteir numbers too. Unless you can provide receipts, which you can’t considering how ludicrous your figures are, there is no point in spreading nonsense here. Compilations aren’t missing, they are simply listed on compilations section. I also moved your dozen of spam messages posted in like 5 minutes to trash. We can also see IPs, so no point either in creating multiple nicknames as you did. Basically, stop trolling.… Read more »
