Spanish ballads became popular in the 1970s and have since gained a significant following worldwide.

Some of the most popular artists of this genre include Julio Iglesias, Rocío Durcal, Juan Gabriel, Luis Miguel, and Alejandro Sanz. Julio Iglesias, in particular, is often referred to as the "King of Spanish ballads," having sold over 300 million records worldwide and recorded over 80 albums.
