Enrique Iglesias wants to spread his music far and wide, including the make-believe world of daytime television.
The 32-year-old Latin heartthrob will sing “Somebody’s Me” from his new CD, “Insomniac,” on the Nov. 7 episode of CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.”
“Music has changed so, so much,” he said after taping his appearance Thursday. “It’s tough out there, so you need any outlet to put your music out there.”
On the show, Iglesias performs at Indigo, the jazz club owned by Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John).
The singer’s other TV credits are the CBS comedies “How I Met Your Mother” and “Two and a Half Men.” He is interested in expanding his acting.
“I love sitcoms,” Iglesias said. “It was different from the daily thing that I do. I want to do little things and learn.”
Iglesias begins a world tour next week in South Africa, followed by dates in Europe before hitting the U.S. next year.
“I still feel like I haven’t made the best album I can make, I guess that’s what keeps on pushing me,” he said. “I still feel like I can write better songs or make better albums.”
