It’s hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since Carlos Santana released Supernatural, his best-selling album that went platinum a whopping 15 times over and spawned multiple top-10 hits—many of which remain fixtures on mainstream radio today. For his latest release, Corazón, and 22nd overall, Santana once again enlisted several of his famous friends to help complete the album. Contributions from singers like Gloria Estefan and Ziggy Marley, along with an appearance by Juanes, show that Santana continues to seamlessly fuse different genres to shape a sound that resonates with the masses. With more than 100 million albums sold and a slew of Grammy Awards to his name, it’s safe to say that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s place in music history is secure.
