MIAMI -- Marc Anthony's latest Spanish-language album "3.0" is a hit, and his single "Vivir mi vida" topped the charts for 18 weeks. But Anthony isn't satisfied. He wants to reconquer a broader market with a new project in English.
Anthony announced at the 25th Billboard Latin Music Conference in Miami on Wednesday that he is working on a pop album. The conference culminates with its award show Thursday. Anthony is nominated in 15 categories.
Anthony says he doesn't have a release date or a record label yet. Sony Music Latin has the exclusive rights only to his Spanish-language music.
The "Newyorican" salsa singer has produced two albums in English, but much of his fame and success has come from his Spanish-language songs.
