Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler (born May 8, 1975 in Madrid, Spain) is a Spanish singer-songwriter and actor. He is the son of Julio Iglesias, also a Spanish singer but formerly Real Madrid's Youth team Goalkeeper, and Filipino-Spanish socialite Isabel Preysler.
He began his career in 1995 with his self-titled debut album. Subsequent releases would ensure his place in the "Latin pop explosion" of the 1990s, alongside peers Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez. Iglesias began to cross over into the English language market, first with the Spanglish hit "Bailamos" and then with the English album Enrique. He steadily released music until the 2014 album Sex and Love. He would release singles thereafter until claiming that the two-parter album Final (the first installment of which was released in 2021) would be his last.

Tropes relating to Enrique Iglesias are:
- Auto-Tune: The usage of autotune is prevalent in his later work. It's especially noticeable in "I Like It".
- Broken Record: Take a shot Everytime he says "heart" in his English songs and "corazon" (Spanish for heart) in his Spanish songs and you will need to go to the hospital.
- Immediate Self-Contradiction: "Tonight (I'm Fuckin' You)". "Please excuse me, I don't mean to be rude". His next line? "But tonight I'm fucking you", which contradicts his own politeness.
- Intercourse with You: Tonight (I'm Lovin' You) is the clean version of the title. The uncensored version drops the pretense.
- One-Steve Limit: Averted in his 2000 off-Broadway musical titled Four Guys Named Jose and Una Mujer Named Maria.
- Self-Titled Album: Enrique Iglesias released the albums Enrique and Enrique Iglesias.
- Sexiness Score: The song "Dirty Dancer" is about a Hard-Drinking Party Girl who's a Sex Goddess that Really Gets Around, with the lyrics claiming she's a "5" before drinking and a "10" after.She's a five when she drinks
But she's a ten when she's on top of me
- A Wild Rapper Appears!: Has verses by rappers in some of his songs:
