About Livin" La Vida Loca

"Livin" la Vida Loca" is a song performed by Ricky Martin. It was released on March 23, 1999, from Martin"s self-titled debut English-language album (he had previously released several albums in Spanish). The song was composed by Desmond Child and Draco Rosa. La vida loca is Spanish for "the crazy life." "Livin" la Vida Loca" is generally seen as the song that began the Latin pop explosion that followed and made the transition of other Spanish-speaking artists (first Enrique Iglesias and Marc Anthony and later Shakira, Paulina Rubio and Thalía) into the English-speaking market easier. Before this time, most non-Latino Americans had never heard of Martin until what CNN reported was a show-stopping performance of "La Copa de la Vida" at the 41st Grammy Awards show, which became a catalyst in bringing Latin pop to the forefront of the U. S. music scene. "Livin" la Vida Loca" sold over 8 million copies, making it one of the best selling singles of all time. The song received various Grammy Awards nominations and Ricky Martin obtained enormous success inside the United States and worldwide. In 2007, the song was ranked at number 28 on the list of 100 Greatest Songs of the 90"s by VH1. It is Martin"s signature song. Martin performed the song on second series of The Voice Australia with fellow judges Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden and Seal.more »
