Marc Anthony, whose birth name is Marco Antonio Muiz, is a famous singer recognized for his silky voice and tropical salsa flair. Anthony’s distinctive sound has helped him win two Grammys and six Latin Grammys throughout his career. His upbringing, heavily influenced by rhythm and blues music, resulted in his developing a salsa style that combines urban and African American musical elements. Ironically, Anthony was hesitant at first to be associated with the salsa music movement and to be labeled as having a sound characteristic of salsa music. He ultimately changed his mind and recorded Otra Nota (1993), which was his debut album in the Spanish language.
The Undisputed Master of Tropical Salsa
Even though Marc Anthony has several accolades to his name, the one that brings him the most notoriety is that he is the tropical salsa music artist with the most record sales of all time. At his comeback concert, which took place in Madison Square Garden, the people from Guinness World Records presented him with an award in recognition of his accomplishment. Anthony was able to break this Record with the assistance of his albums “Desde un Principio: From the Beginning,” “Libre,” and “3.0.” Marc Anthony has now set not one but two world records. His first was a celebration that he had become the artist with the most year-end best-selling records on the charts for tropical albums.
