Luis Miguel achieved success his way
For pretty much any musical artist, achieving true global success means singing songs in English, no matter where they come from or what their native tongue might be. Artists from Latin America have been following this path for decades, adding English-language crossover singles to their repertoire in order to reach a wider audience.
But the artist considered the most successful in the history of Latin American music has achieved that feat by performing only in Spanish. Luis Miguel has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, has won multiple Grammys and Latin Grammys, and sells out concerts around the world, including in Las Vegas.
He began his career at the age of 11 with his 1982 debut album El Sol, and by 14 he had already won his first Grammy (for “Me Gustas Tal Como Eres,” a duet with Sheena Easton). He’s released 20-plus albums in a range of genres since, and his latest is last year’s ¡México Por Siempre!, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Latin Albums chart. For nearly 40 years, Miguel has been at the top of the Latin music world, and he’s done it all on his own terms.
