Happy belated birthday to Enrique Iglesias, who turned 35 this past Saturday. It’s been 15 years since Julio’s son launched his own career, and he hasn’t slowed down since. He’s currently putting the finishing touches on his sixth album, Euforia (out July 6; Universal) and we’ve heard it’s an “eclectic collection” with songs in Spanish and English.

“It taps into so many different styles of music,” has said the singer. “It’s been really exciting for me to experiment and explore new territory.”

Collaborations include Akon, Usher, Nicole Scherzinger, Wisin y Yandel and other chart-toppers. The latest single, “I Like It,” features fellow Miami resident Pitbull and samples Lionel Richie’s 1983 hit “All Night Long.” The club-ready track has already earned a spot in the upcoming Jersey Shore Soundtrack. And if that doesn’t inspire a fist pump or two, this will: The song is currently number one on iTunes with Iglesias’ duet with Juan Luis Guerra, “Cuando Me Enamoro,” in position number six. Here’s a teaser:
