Enrique Iglesias on 'Sex and Love'

He’s sold over 100 million records worldwide and is one of the biggest Spanish-language artists of all time. Over 20 years into his music career, Enrique Iglesias has just released his tenth album, "Sex and Love". He speaks to France 24 about collaborating with the likes of Kylie Minogue, why criticism of his video clip of the song "I’m a Freak" as sexist is unjustified and why he likes to sing about sex and love.

Also on the show: we meet the French band that’s mixing music with imagery. Shaka Ponk consider an animated monkey called Goz to be the sixth member of their band.

Finally, it was named the Oxford Dictionary word of the year, and everyone from Barack Obama to Ellen DeGeneres is getting in on the act. Now New York band The Chainsmokers' song "#Selfie" has gone viral, with over 17 million views.
