Enrique Iglesias' ‘Después Que Te Perdí’ Raking In Multimillion Views

It seems that Spanish singer, songwriter, actor and heartthrob Enrique Iglesias has not lost his touch. The proof is in his recently released single “Después Que Te Perdí,” which is currently raking in millions of views on YouTube.

The most amazing part is that the song was only released more than a week ago. “Después Que Te Perdí” was only released on March 13, but the song has already reached more than 15 million views on video-sharing site YouTube.

Iglesias then reached out to his fans via social media to thank them for their support. 

The song is actually a new version of a similarly titled song by Puerto Rican rapper, Jon Z, which was released on Feb. 15. The rapper was likewise featured in Iglesias’ version.

Meanwhile, a new bill that was spurred by an Enrique Iglesias concert three years ago has now been given preliminary approval by the Texas House on March 20. The bill requires governmental entities to disclose financial information on concerts or public events if they are at least partly funded by taxpayer dollars.

On Dec. 5, 2015, the Texan city of McAllen hired Iglesias for a concert. However, the city refused to disclose how much it paid the Spanish singer.

The city argued that doing so would put the city in a disadvantageous position in future negotiations with other artists. The Texas Attorney General’s Office agreed with McAllen’s argument, so the information was kept confidential. While McAllen residents do not know how much Iglesias got for his one-hour performance, it later surfaced that the city actually suffered a loss in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for that concert.

However, state lawmakers did not like the idea of government entities having the option of not disclosing financial details of their spending. Thus, state Rep. Terry Canales, D-Edinburg, proposed the House Bill 81 to plug this loophole.

“My intent is not to also allow other trade secrets ... for event promoters, their ticketing process or their security plans,” Canales argued during the bill’s hearing. “It's simply: What do these people spend?” The bill will still need to be approved by the Senate before it can take into effect.
