US pop star Lionel Richie has collaborated with Enrique Iglesias on the Spanish singer's new English-language single "I Like It" which was previewed Monday on the Internet.

The upbeat song, which was uploaded to the web site of Spanish television channel Telecinco, features a sample of Richie's 1983 hit single "All Night Long".

It was recorded with Lady Gaga producer Red One and it will be included on Iglesias' as-yet-untitled new album which will be released in July.

"I can't wait to finish making this album. It's like nothing I've ever done before. It taps into so many different styles of music. It has been really exciting for me to experiment and explore new territory," he said last month.

Iglesias, 34, and Richie, 60, worked together before on the 2002 hit duet "To Love A Woman".

The song first appeared on Richie's 'live' album "Encore" and Iglesias' special edition release of "Escape".

Since bursting on to the music scene in 1995, Enrique has become one of the biggest selling Spanish artists of all time, selling over 55 million albums.
