"Could I Have This Kiss Forever" is a 2000 duet from singers Whitney Houston and Enrique Iglesias, written by Diane Warren. The song first appeared on Iglesias's debut English-language album Enrique as a slow Latin styled ballad. It achieved success in many countries, including Switzerland where it topped the chart. Houston and Iglesias had never actually met in person as both of them originally recorded the song in separate studios; Houston in Hamburg, Germany and Iglesias in Los Angeles, California. The two eventually met in the studio, however, when the song was re-recorded for single release by Metro (the same team responsible for Iglesias's previous hits Bailamos and Rhythm Divine, with the new version being mid-tempo. The new version was released by Houston's label, Arista, as the first USA single of her greatest-hits collection Whitney: The Greatest Hits, (while "If I Told You That" lead as the single in most European countries). It was the fourth single from Enrique's album Enrique and available in his compilation Greatest Hits (Enrique Iglesias album) released in 2008. The song was extremely successful internationally; hitting #1 in several countries worldwide, including Switzerland and Spain. It also hit the top ten in many other countries, and attained Gold status in Australia, Germany, and Switzerland. It reached the top ten European chart. It had minor success in the US, reaching #52.
