When self-styled media prophets predicted Latin music would be the Next Big Thing, one had only to look as far as 1999's MTV awards, when Ricky Martin shook his bon-bon and the pop world shuddered to a halt. The ex-Menudo member's first English-language solo album went on to sell more than 35 million copies and it's easy to see why. Ricky Martin is rife with songs that were destined to appeal to classic rock and adult contemporary fans, from guitar-laden power ballads like "She's All I Ever Had" and "I Am Made for You" to the electronica-kissed "Be Careful (Cuidado Con Mi Corazon)," a duet with Madonna. The boisterous surf-ska of "Livin' La Vida Loca," was an inescapable radio smash and a Grammy champion, rendering salsa as easily digestible as Buster Poindexter's "Hot, Hot, Hot" made soca, while Spanglish radio edits of international hits "Maria" and "The Cup of Life" are similarly accessible. Maybe this isn't your abuelitos' idea of Latin music, but its potent mix of dead-on marketing, sexy packaging, and unshakable pop smarts opened the door for Latino stars from Marc Anthony to Jennifer Lopez, which made listening to the radio a little more loca for everyone. And that's a good thing.
