P. Diddy. Then her unexpected relationship with Ben Affleck and their film Gigli both flopped. But Jennifer Lopez got back in the limelight in a very big way. She released several hit singles, judged the eternally popular TV show contestants on American Idol, started a very “bootylicious” fashion line at Kohl’s, and is the spokesperson for the hip and sporty Fiat vehicle.
He swept the Spanish-speaking world with his seductive, sultry music, selling more albums than any other Spanish-speaking artist early in his career. His fame more than doubled when he extended his music to the English-speaking world, with hit singles like “Hero” and “Don’t Turn Off the Lights.” And who can forget Enrique Iglesias’ sensual “Escape” video with beautiful tennis pro Anna Kournikova, that started their nearly decade-long relationship? These days Enrique is collaborating with artists like Lil Wayne, Usher, Pitbull, and others. The hits just keep comin’!
So what’s the big deal? The two Latin pop stars, along with Wisin Y Yandel, will sweep the Twin Cities next Wednesday, August 1, performing together for one sexy night on stage at Target Center, and you could win tickets to see them in action. While each artist has his or her own hits, including J.Lo’s “On the Floor” and Enrique’s “Dirty Dancer,” you can bet that they’ll collaborate on several dynamic performances.
