Nearly a decade into his commercial recording career, Alejandro Sanz reached new heights of success with the award-winning album M s (1997) and its abundance of smash hit singles ("Y, ¨Si Fuera Ella?," "Coraz¢n Part¡o," "Amiga M¡a," "Aquello Que Me Diste"). The Spanish singer/songwriter was no stranger to success at this point in his career, of course, having scored several hit singles with a handful of prior albums. M s elevated his career to a new level. Henceforth, not only was Sanz successful in Spain but internationally, too. ~ Jason Birchmeier
