Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias released the music clip for his newest single "Turn The Night Up," off his upcoming 10th studio album, which is due in stores in autumn, although there's no official release date yet.
As the Latin Times notes, the video "captures that fun night out vibe." It was directed by Justin Francis, who has also worked with artists like Mariah Carey, Modest Mouse, The Fray, Alicia Keys and Timbaland.
In the 3:50 long clip, we get to see Iglesias having fun at a house party and driving around the city chasing a girl, played by actress Kristen Carpenter.
The 38-year-old singer's new track has an electronic style, with sensual lyrics. "One of those powerful, fun energetic songs and when we wrote it, I was just focusing at making sure if I could pull off the vocals in the studio, I was like, 'This is it, this could be one of those fun songs'," said Iglesias during an interview with Ryan Seacres for On Air with Ryan Seacrest.
He said his longtime girlfriend, former professional Tennis player Anna Kournikova, inspired him to write "Turn The Night Up."
"You know how it started? I always walk around my house and am always joking around and there's a phrase in the song that says 'Gimme some of that.' And I'm always saying that, saying 'Gimme some of that' and ... doing a stupid little dance. [And] my girlfriend always starts laughing, so I went to the studio and said we've got to write the song around this!," the singer told Seacrest.
His previous album, "Euphoria," released three years ago, was produced by The Cataracs, who also worked with former Disney star and Latin singer Selena Gomez and rapper Snoop Dogg. The album had songs both in Spanish and English, and featured artists like Juan Luis Guerra, Usher, Pitbull and Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Wisin Y Yandel.
The "Cuando Me Enamoro" singer confessed he was currently still working on his new album. "I'm actually in Miami finishing the album up. I have a bunch of songs I just want to make sure I pick my favorites. I'm not focusing so much on a style of music, I just want to pick the songs I enjoy the most," he said.
Since starting his music career in 1995, Iglesias has evolved into one the most successful stars of his time. He is one the best-selling Spanish artists, with sales that exceed 100 million worldwide. According to PR Newsire, Iglesias holds the record for most Spanish language singles to hit No. 1 on the Hot Latin Tracks chart, producing 23 in total.
