Friday Canción: Para Que La Vida by Enrique Iglesias

Hola mis amigos.  ¡Es viernes!

Welcome today’s Friday Canción.  Today’s song is Para Que La Vida by Enrique Iglesias.

Okay I have a confession… I absolutely adore Enrique Iglesias.  Lol.  Don’t think it was much of a secret!!!  Anyway, I couldn’t resist sharing another one of his musical renditions with you today.  So please enjoy Para Que La Vida

I know I’m not alone in the Enrique adoration camp. With the release of Para Que La Vida, in 2003, Enrique Iglesias became the first Latin singer to be played over 1,000,000 times on US radio.

Here are las letras with English translation.

para que la vida letras
