Carlos Santana’s latest album release, Supernatural, the 36th of his career, spotlights a legendary
artist at the peak of his powers. Supernatural has sold in excess of ten million copies, and has been
officially certified ‘Dectillion Platinum’ – Diamond Status—by the R.I.A.A. It won nine GRAMMYs at
the 42nd Annual GRAMMY Awards in February 2000, including Album Of the Year, Best Rock
Album, and Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year for ‘Smooth,’ Santana’s unforgettable
collaboration with alternative-rock favorite Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas. In 1999 anyone on the
planet with a radio couldn’t help but feel the sultry groove of this Latin flavored, mid-tempo rock
masterpiece. Carlos explains that "Some songs are just like tattoos for your brain…you hear them
and they’re affixed to you"—‘Smooth’ proved its staying power with a record 12 consecutive weeks at
#1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making it the longest running #1 single of 1999.
