Considered the most commercially successful Spanish singer of all time, Alejandro Sanz rose to fame in the 1990s, cranking out hit after hit and achieving international mainstream success by the end of the decade. Sanz made his debut in 1991 with the release of his first studio album Viviendo de Prisa, which became a number one hit in his native country Spain. He would make his international breakthrough a few years later with his fifth album Más in 1997, garnering widespread critical acclaim. Sanz set his sights on the Americas next, becoming the first Spanish artist to record an MTV Unplugged album in 2001. His 2005 collaboration with Colombian superstar Shakira for the single "La Tortura" hit the number one spot on several charts worldwide. Sanz later releases saw the singer exploring a broader range of genres and musical styles such as pop, rock, funk, R&B, and jazz, stepping away from his signature flamenco-influenced ballads. He has taken home three Grammy Awards and 17 Latin Grammy Awards including three for Album of the Year, more than any other artist.
