In 2000, Baute moved to Spain, where he continued working on his solo career. A year later, the singer recorded another album, Dame De Eso. Songs from the LP became popular all over Latin America. Soon it was certified platinum.
In 2004, Carlos signed a contract with Warner Music and released the new album Peligroso. The LP was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Humberto Gatica.
In 2005, Baute finally managed to get international recognition with his sixth album Baute. The LP reached the 11th spot on Spanish Albums Chart. Carlos slightly changed his style but stayed with Latin pop. Thanks to the big popularity of the album, Carlos was invited to many TV shows. His success in the music business helped his acting career.
In 2006, Baute landed a role in a Spanish soap opera Mis Adorables Vecinos. He was part of 18 episodes. Due to a very busy schedule, it was nearly impossible to book Carlos Baute for any event. The same year, Carlos released a compilation album Grandes Éxitos, which reached the 16th spot on Spanish Albums Chart.
In 2008, Baute released his most famous album to date De Mi Puño Y Letra. It reached the second spot on Spanish Albums Chart and received a platinum certificate. Later it was certified golden in Mexico. After the release, Baute went on a Latin American tour. Upon the return, he immediately started working on a new album.
In 2011 and 2013, Carlos released two LPs Amarte Bien and En el Buzón de Tu Corazón. Both albums reached high spots on Spanish Albums Chart. However, they weren’t as popular as the previous LP.
Today Carlos is actively working on his music and acting career. He is married to a Venezuelan model Astrid Klisans.
