REVIEW

Enrique Iglesias is playing by his own rules on his 10th album, "Sex and Love" (Republic). Not only does he throw the thematic idea of not mixing dance pop and ballads out the window, he also drops the idea that a superstar can't mix Spanish and English lyrics on an American album. Aided by a posse of top collaborators, Iglesias hops from one style to the next, from the current club anthem "I'm a Freak" with Pitbull to the experimental synth-pop of "Beautiful" with Kylie Minogue to the bachata version of "El Perdedor" with Marco Antonio Solis -- all with relative ease and playa swagger.
