Singer-songwriter Luis Fonsi was born in 1978 in Puerto Rico and in 1995 enrolled at Florida State University to study music. His studies were curtailed after the artist was offered a contract by Universal Music Latin which convinced him to drop out of college and turn professional. He recorded his debut album in 1998 titled 'Comenzaré'. The album peaked at number eleven on Billboard's Latin Chart and was a modest hit across Latin America. By the time of the release of his second album Fonsi had recorded a successful duet with Christina Aguilera and won a Latin Grammy with one of his compositions. With his career in the ascendancy Fonsi opened for Britney Spears' world tour in 2002 and a year later found himself playing before billions of people around the globe when he was a featured performer on the Miss World 2003 competition held in China. With nine studio albums to his credit Fonsi remains one of the most popular acts on the Latin music circuit and is best known for his collaborations with rapper Daddy Yankee. Between them the two artists have four Latin Grammy Awards including one of the single 'Despacito' which was a worldwide hit in 2017. 'Calypso' with Stefflon Don reached number eleven on the Hot Latin Chart in 2018 and his collaboration with Clean Bandit on 'Baby' reached number 15 on the UK Singles Chart. 2019 saw the release of Fonsi's tenth studio album, 'Vida'.
