Bio

Ricky Martin is a Puerto Rican singer who ruled the world of Latin and American pop during the 1990s. After his initial stint with the all-boy Latin pop band ‘Menudo,’ he went on to pursue a career as a solo artist. He released a couple of albums in Spanish before he was chosen to compose ‘La Copa de la Vida’ (The Cup of Life) as the official theme of the 1998 ‘FIFA World Cup.’ He later performed the same at the 41st ‘Grammy Awards.’ It was his blockbuster single ‘Livin’ la Vida Loca’ that brought him worldwide recognition and made him an international superstar. As one of the most prominent Latin pop singers, he successfully placed the genre on the world stage, paving the way for other popular Latin singers, such as Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, and Jennifer Lopez. In addition to Spanish, he also recorded English-language albums that increased his popularity. He is credited for selling 85+ million albums and has also performed in concerts all over the world.

Life & Career

Ricky Martin released his debut solo Spanish-language album ‘Ricky Martin’ in 1991 under ‘Sony Discos.’ The album became a hit and featured on Latin charts. This was followed by his second solo album ‘Me Amaras’ in 1993. He launched his first English-language album ‘Ricky Martin’ in 1999, which debuted at No. 1 on the ‘Billboard 200’ chart. The album was declared ‘the most successful by a Hispanic artist.’ In 2014, he embarked on ‘Mexican One World Tour.’ He ended the tour after performing at the opening ceremony of the 22nd ‘Central American Caribbean Games.’ In February 2018, Martin released his single ‘Fiebre’ from his new musical production, and as of February 7, 2020, the singer embarked on his world tour, ‘Movimiento Tour.’
