Spanish heartthrob Enrique Iglesias' music is so popular in India that 30.6% of all his downloads are accounted for by the country.

The singer, popular for numbers like Hero and Escape, is also second on the list of the top most downloaded male Latin music artist of 2010. He has been beaten by Colombian crooner Shakira, reveals a study by Nokia's Ovi Music.

"The latest Ovi Music trends show how Enrique Iglesias has brought Latin music to the world stage, appealing to people across the globe. Whilst Shakira's latest music has become more pop focused, she still retains her title as the world's most popular Latin music artist - beating all the male acts to the top spot," said Ovi musicologist Geoff Roberts in a press statement.

Iglesias will be competing with some of the biggest stars of the Latino music scene at the Latin Grammy awards this week. His number Cuando Me Enamoro is competing in the best song category.

Ovi Music also found out that Iglesias' I Like It is the most downloaded Latin music track of 2010 and his latest album Euphoria is also the top downloaded album this year.
