So, it’s been a year since I started popolio.com and kicked it of with my first MY TOP 10 Countdown in September 2008. Since popolio.com was jumping off, I kicked it off with MY TOP 10: 90s/00s Pop/R&B Diva Music Video Jump-Offs. Well, this is the twelfth month, so I thought it would create nice symmetry if I presented the men as a bookend to that very first countdown before Year 2 officially begins. This time around the Div-Os, or Divos, will get the spotlight.
With this video we should be back on track starting tomorrow.
8. Enrique Iglesias “Bailamos”
This song was included in the Will Smith vehicle, Wild Wild West. It was also Mr. Iglesias first foray into the English market and it was a huge success, though the film wasn’t. It’s sung in Spanglish and set the stage for Enrique’s debut English CD, Enrique. This was amidst what was dubbed the Latin explosion of Latin-tinged English pop mostly by artists of Latin descent in the 1990s. The BONUS video is “Rhythm Divine,” the first proper single from his English debut. It was a moderate success, but not as successful as “Bailamos.”
