LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Latin sensation Enrique Iglesias plans to heat up arenas as he goes on tour with Pitbull and newcomer Prince Royce in September.
The tour will feature songs from his latest chart-topping album, “Euphoria,” and include hit songs such as, “I Like It” and “Tonight.”
Enrique’s current album features collaborations with Akon, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, Usher, and Pitbull and Enrique dished to Access Hollywood about collaborating with Pitbull.
“Pitbull’s the one that brings the energy, the fun, and the openness. If there’s anything we want to work out, if there’s anything that’s wrong we talk about it,” Enrique said. “If things are going great, great but we want to put on the best show possible for our fans.”
He also expressed his admiration for how hardworking and dedicated Pitbull is.
“Everything he does he kills it. And one thing I learned about him, and this I learned in the video when we were doing “I Like It,” is every time this guy’s on screen, every time he goes to the studio it’s like he’s doing it like it’s the last time he’s going to do it” he told Access.
The singing sensation also cleared up rumors about being approached to be a judge on the upcoming show, FOX’s “The X Factor.”
“We spoke about it. I actually spoke to Simon Cowell about it and I truly respect that man because he’s smart, clever, and everything he touches becomes gold,” Enrique said.
The singer admitted he was on the fence about doing the show, but eventually decided against it due to scheduling conflicts.
“At the end of the day I was torn, it was kind of difficult to rearrange my schedule,” he said.
Enrique will kick-start his fall tour in Boston this September 22.
