A ： Have you listened to the latest hit of Ricky Martin?
B：Not yet. How is it?
A： Marvelous! I’ve listened to it thousands and thousands of times.
B：Aha,but you guy think every single of him is a wonder.
A: Yeah,you can say that. I really get crushed with him.
B: Well，this Latin heartthrob has taken the world by storm. He has millions of fans from all around the world.
A:He’s a miracle.
B： I heard he has been performing since he was a young boy.
A：Well,he has been performing in plays and singing since he was in kindergarten. In fact his first big break came when he was just twelve years old.
A:嗯，他还在幼儿园的时候就开始在舞台 剧中进行表演并唱歌。事实上他才12 岁的时候就一举成名了。
B：He is well talented,I may say.
A:He is a genius. He has written or co-written most of the lyrics on his albums. His love for music and life has been the inspiration for his song lyrics and this passion is clearly reflected in his music.
A:他简直就是个天才。他专辑里的好多歌词 都是他自己或跟别人一块儿合作创造的。 他对音乐和生命的热爱是他写歌的灵感， 这种热情也很清楚地反映在他的音乐中。
B： But only until after his performance at the 1998 World Cup Soccer in France he went truly in the wolrd spotlight,right?
A ： Well, his albums have been a success from the start,and as a result of this performance, his fourth album went platinum.
B： I got that one. It surely has many good songs. But anyhow Latin music is not the mainstream among the pop.
B:我有那张碟。其中确实有很多好歌。但 再怎么说，拉丁音乐毕竟不是流行音乐 的主流。
A：It used not to,but it’s gaining its share day by day and Ricky Martin has taken it to the extreme. His success has paved the way for other Latin musicians.
A:过去不是，但逐渐是了。瑞奇马丁已 经把它演绎到了极致。他的成功为其他 的拉丁音乐人铺平了道路。
B ： He does make a big impact on the pop music.
