During a live Q&A on Friday (Sept. 3), Enrique Iglesias announced that his forthcoming album, titled Final, could be his last one.
The 46-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter revealed the news to Ricky Martin and Sebastián Yatra, and their millions of followers on Instagram, during a live chat promoting their upcoming tour set to kick off later this month. Final is set to drop on Sept. 17.
“It might be my final album,” the “Bailando” siner told them. “It’s not something that I have been thinking about for the past few months. It’s something that I have been thinking about for the past few years. There’s going to be Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, but they’re final. I’m in that moment in my life, that chapter in my life, where I think it’s the right time to put it out and I’ve been thinking about this since 2015.”
Although it might be his last album, Iglesias reassured fans that it doesn’t mean he’ll stop making music. “I’m never going to stop writing songs because I love writing songs, but I’m going to do it in a different way — meaning they don’t necessarily have to be packaged as an album — so this project to me is important.”
Final Vol. 1 will be Iglesias’ 11th studio album and will follow 2014’s Sex and Love, which peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart (dated April 4, 2014).
Most recently, Iglesias teamed up with Farruko for the summer gem “Me Pasé,” which was released in July and became his first single since 2019. The reggaeton-infused rhythmic anthem is the first track off Iglesias’ Final Vol. 1, which will drop just days before his North American tour with Martin and Yatra kicks off in Las Vegas on Sept. 25.
