"The Cup of Life" is a song recorded by Puerto Rican singer, Ricky Martin that was included on his fifth album, Ricky Martin (1999). In 1998, Martin released the song as a CD single, his second in the United States. The song's success was a step up from his last single, "María", peaking at #45 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Close followers of Martin may have noticed that "The Cup of Life" was not a new song, but simply a translation of the song "La Copa de la Vida," a track included on his fourth album, Vuelve. "La Copa de la Vida" peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks in June and July 1998, held off from the top spot by Elvis Crespo's "Suavemente and Carlos Ponce's "Rezo." The 1998 translation of the song gained instant popularity, being the official song of the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
