Enrique Iglesias Injured by Drone at Tijuana concert (WATCH VIDEO)

enrique-iglesias-drone-accident

Enrique Iglesias was injured last night in a bullring in Tijuana, Mexico. But no, it was not a bull, but a drone that got the international star all bloodied. This begs the question of how did a drone end up in an Enrique Sex and Love World Tour concert?

Apparently, Enrique uses a drone during the show to show off shots of the crowd and on certain nights grabs it to provide the audience a Point of View shot. This is where it went wrong. In the attempt to handle the drone he suffered an accident and was bleeding enough from two sliced fingers that he had to be advised that he should stop the concert and get further treatment.

Enrique refused and in an act of great courage he continued performing for 30 minutes, still bleeding throughout. Afterwards, he was rushed to the airport where an ambulance led him to a plane which arrived in Los Angeles where he saw a specialist.

Enrique is currently undergoing reconstructive surgery on the hand as of present time.

ENRIQUE STANDS ALONE ON CHART, MAKES HISTORY

Enrique - Ayer
Enrique Iglesias has sold over 100 million copies of the ten albums he has produced over these many years. He is enjoying a lengthy run at #1 with his album “Bailando” in its 22nd week on the top spot. But this is not why history has called.

That same single marked Enrique’s 13th single to be number one on the Billboard Dance Club Song Chart. No male singer has done this. Not Prince, not even Michael Jackson.

In addition his single is the first non-english song to to reach the top 10 on Top 40 radio since Rio’s Macarena in 1996. Enrique is enjoying a very successful tour with Pitbull promoting his “Sex and Love” album. And now he stands alone in music history.

Dominican Duo Changes The Face Of Production

It is a sign of sophistication in the Urban Latin music world when one thinks out of the box. When two friends do this, it becomes a plan and the idea grows to its natural fruition. Such was the case with two producers, Alcover and Xtassy (A&X), who have made a name for themselves producing for large names like Don Omar, Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias, and Romeo Santos, among others.

The occasion was the grand opening of “We are Loud” studios in the Bronx. This studio serves multiple purposes and was created as a way to give back to the community that supports the music they help create. For the Latin Billboard producers of the year in 2013, it is all about the plan. “It’s not only about the music. You have to have a team and a marketing plan.” Xtassy explained.

Both are from humble beginnings so they used their work ethic and ideas to gain the trust of local artists as they built a reputation in the Dominican Republic and by extension New York City. It was from their limited means earlier in the game that allows them to emphasize with the needs others have in the business. “If our friends wanted to hear us, they had to come to our house to hear it.”

Alcover-and-Xtassy

A chance meeting with Don Omar took two tries to secure but once they did magic was created with two of Don Omar’s most successful efforts. The signature moment was probably the most played song in 2013, “Dutty Love” with Don Omar and protégé Natti Natasha, who appeared this evening. “It’s the people’s song.” Alcover refers to the lack of promotion of that particular song. The names that came to support this opening are examples of style over substance. You had director Jessy Terrero, Henry Santos, as well as “Orange is the New Black” actress, Jackie Cruz.

But the space that A&X created was as diverse as their music. Starting from the main space at the end of a long foyer as you entered, we had a large open space with white concrete floors running from wall to wall and intersecting it. This will be used for live performances, photo shoots, and parties.

In the adjoining rooms we viewed a DJ classroom with equipment laid out on separate desks. The DJ Booth contained a handmade set with several Latin Mixx Awards decorating the walls. But the centerpiece was A&X Studio space. The walls decked out in red, white, and blue, with clouds depicted as well. The studio was well equipped and if you close your eyes, you can almost hear Don Omar at work on his new project.

This is what can be done when two young men with a dream, ideas, and a plan work hard and think out of the box. As they move into 2014 they have the secret to their success imbedded mentally. Alcover shared why, “We’re not the only producers around but we work hard and those that do stay relevant.”.

Enrique Iglesias - Finally Found You

New Video: Enrique Iglesias Featuring Daddy Yankee

Enrique Iglesias - Finally Found You

As if you had not heard Enrique Iglesias “Finally Found You” now there is a new version that is geared to the more Latino audience featuring Daddy Yankee. The video shows Enrique as his natural sexy self with a very caliente bed scene and a naked shot that we hope is not a double and we also wish it wasn’t as blurry… Just saying. Daddy Yankee’s feature is a Spanglish mix and gives the song an of urban twist.

Thanks everyone for supporting the single and I hope you like this new version of the song!
