Early Days

Considering the celebrity status of his parents, Miguel Bose grew up in an environment where it was natural to interact with famous people. Some of the celebrities that visited his home when he was a child included American author Ernest Hemingway, Italian actress Sofia Loren and the Spanish painter Pablo Picasso. That lifestyle injected Miguel Bose with a love for art that inspired him to study theater and dance.

The Beginning of His Singing Career

Acting was his first passion. In fact, Miguel Bose got his first role in a movie when he was just a teenager. Although acting was his priority, Miguel Bose started to write his first songs during the early 1970s. In 1977, he released Linda, his first studio album, which included the hit song by the same name and the single "Amiga," one of the most memorable romantic ballads produced by the Spanish singer.

Thanks to the albums he produced during the early 1980s, Miguel Bose was able to jump from the Latin ballad movement into the emerging sounds of Latin Pop music. During those years, he consolidated his popularity with hit songs such as "Creo En Ti," "Morir De Amor," and "La Chula." In spite of this early success, the best was yet to come.

'Bandido' and 'Salamandra'

In the mid-eighties, Miguel Bose changed gears with a new, more sophisticated style that departed from the romantic sound that he had built with his previous works. Thanks to the refreshing sound of his 1985 album Bandido and the follow up production Salamandra, Miguel Bose was able to capture audiences all over the world.

Some of the most memorable tracks from these two albums include hits like "Amante Bandido," "Sevilla," "Nena," "Salamandra" and "Aire Soy." Bandido and Salamandra represented huge steps in the musical of this talented artist.

Reinventing Himself

Although the following decade was not as hectic as the previous one in terms of recordings, Miguel Bose delivered outstanding works during the 1990s including albums such as Bajo El Signo De Cain, Laberinto and Once Maneras De Ponerse El Sombrero. Each single production reflected Miguel Bose's innovative spirit and his constant desire to reinvent himself as an artist.

In the 2000s, albums such as Sereno and Velvetina provided Miguel Bose with the opportunity to keep growing at the musical level. In 2007, Miguel Bose celebrated his 30 years in the music business with , one of the best-selling albums of his prolific music career featuring duets with big stars such as Shakira, Julieta Venegas and Ricky Martin.

After that, Miguel Bose released Cardio and Papitwo, another duets-themed album built around the same formula he used in Papito.
