New single "Finally Found You" available on iTunes.
Enrique has had quite a year. He dropped his ninth (ninth!) album, Euphoria, and the only thing steamier than his sultry duet with Nicole Scherzinger on “Heartbeat” was him water-skiing naked in celebration of Spain winning the World Cup. (Baby, we like that.)
Of course, the singer and scored a major hit this year with the Pitbull-assisted, Jersey Shore-approved club jam “I Like It”, which was voted the Song Of The Summer by our readers. But as far as what Enrique’s listening to, he chose Linkin Park’s “Waiting For The End” from their new album A Thousand Suns as his favorite song of the year.
It’s so hard for me to select just one song or album that is my absolute favorite of the year. I listen to so many different types of music that it’s difficult to compare and pick one above the rest. Whether it’s Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Cee Lo Green, Jason Mraz, Juan Luis Guerra, Marco Antonio Solis, Lionel Richie, Wisin & Yandel or Pitbull, it is difficult for me to select JUST ONE artist, let alone one song or one album.
I usually listen to new music through the radio, finding songs on YouTube and from recommendations through friends. One song in particular that keeps standing out is Linkin Park’s new single, “Waiting For The End”. I know that the most recent album from the band has been a bit of departure from their usual style, and I always admire musicians who grow and take risks musically.
“Waiting For The End” has been in my heavy rotation recently because it has an amazingly melodic quality that builds into an upbeat rock anthem. The song has a hook that gets stuck in your head, but I’m not mad at that. It’s super catchy and has elements of pop, but holds true to the band’s rock roots. I like that the somber lyrics of the song contrast with the catchy begging and upbeat ending. The more I listen to it the more I truly appreciate what the band has done with this song and their new album.

Mike, Chester, Brad, Rob, Mr. Hahn, and Phi-Phi do make some pretty good music. I am very proud of my boys!
I just totally love the fact that Enrique picked a song by Linkin Park. I've been a fan of Linkin Park for a long, long while. It makes me happy that he sees the talent that they have. And I would hope one day, they'll see his talent and give him complements.
I wonder why he picked this song .. I had never heard of it before, but I must say that I like it a lot. He's got great taste in music !
