Heartthrobs Next Door, or How Hispanic Singers are Hot

I know what you're thinking: "Great... we thought this could be a blog where gratuitous sexy male pictures wouldn't be found" but I'm here to appease you. Now go on, Enjoy them! You know you want to.
Just cause I can, here's a list of impossibly attractive Hispanic male singers that make me drool... And oh yeah, they're talented too and you should check out their work.

Alejandro Sanz
Best known in the English-speaking world for his duet with Shakira La Tortura (remember him? He was the one not writhing in oil in that film clip), but Alejandro has been around for more than a decade now, not only being delectable but also offering great music to swooning hordes of female (and male) fans.
Download This: (yes, if EW can do it, so can I!) Te Lo Agradezco Pero No - feat Shakira, and Cuando Nadie Me Ve.

Carlos Ponce
If you are wondering who Carlos is the answer is simple: A soap opera star who also got an album produced by the Estefans. And more than just a pair of pretty blue eyes, Carlos also has great beats and a ahem great resume: check his imdb page and you'll be surprised to find credits for such eclectic works as 7th Heaven (Oh WB!), Just My Luck and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.
Download This: Escuchame, and Rezo. Yes, I went old school!

I gotta support my homeland which is why this Grammy Award Winning singer makes the list. Ever since he got his start with Ekhymosis (and alt rock band) back in the 90s Juanes has had me singing along to his music. He also gets points for using his fame to bring awareness about the impact of land-mines in Colombia. Socially aware, talented and hot? You got it.

Ricky Martin
How does one create a list of drool-inducing Latin singing men and not include the ex-Menudo superstar? Yes, I've been there since the beginnings: from Menudo, through Muñecos de Papel (don't ask... really), past Maria and into his hip-shaking Livin La Vida Loca apex. Good thing he's always also been pretty to look at. Which is why I'll be hunting down his newest DVD Black and White Tour.

Enrique Iglesias
When Mr Iglesias is not guest-starring on CBS shows, giving J-Love some work or showing off his girlfriend, he pops out good music - and yes, I'm talking about that great duet with then-diva Whitney Houston. Also out of the boys on this list, he's the one most likely to show off his body in his videos.
Download This: Dimelo and Not in Love (feat Kelis)

Now sure, this list is probably a carbon copy of a list I might or might not have made a couple of years ago, but the years have done nothing but season these artists.
