|When he was just 12 years old, Ricky Martin became a member of Menudo and for the next five year helped them become stars. He left in 1989 and following a few months of inactivity, he began to work his way back into the entertainment industry. He released his self-titled debut album, which became a sizable hit on the Latin charts. Two years later, he followed it with 'Me Amaras', which was an even bigger hit, launching him to superstar status in Latin America. After a brief stint on Broadway, he released his third album, 'A Medio Vivir', a record that had a harder rock edge, yet also featured the usual Latin flare and style. His international breakthrough came in 1999 with his fifth album - which was his first English-language pop album called simply 'Ricky Martin'. The album was an international smash thanks largely to the hit single 'Livin La Vida Loca'. Since then he has gone form strength to strength with a string of hit singles and million selling albums. With over two decades of fantastic music to choose form there is no shortage of back catalogue rarities, amazing memorabilia and quality collectibles, all available right here in our specialist Ricky Martin collectors store.
