The “King of Mallorca” Jürgen Drews is one of Germany’s most successful stars. His successes are looping at Ballermann.
After numerous performances in Mallorca, the 77-year-old announced in 2021 that he would no longer be performing on the island for the time being. But in 2022 it will be: 50 years of Ballermann! Can we therefore expect a return of the singer?
On the occasion of the anniversary, you can read about the successes and the future of the successful icon at BILD. All information about Jürgen Drews is available here!

The way to the top
The successful star was born in 1945 in the small town of Nauen in Brandenburg. In his youth he lived in Schleswig (Schleswig-Holstein). His musical career began there at an early age: he made his first performances in a hotel. At the age of 15, he even received a music award.
By the way: Drews tried his hand at medicine after graduating from high school! In the fall of 1967, he enrolled to study medicine. After four semesters, however, he abandoned his studies to devote himself entirely to music.
Jürgen Drews made his breakthrough in 1976 with the hit “Ein Bett im Kornfeld”. Since then he has been a welcome guest singer on the ZDF hit parade.
Also interesting: After his breakthrough in Germany, Jürgen Drews also tried his hand in the USA. There, he released a record in 1980, but it did not bring the expected success.

Shortly after reunification, the musician returned to Germany. There he became a music producer and hit parade host. At that time he already had some performances in Mallorca. In 1999, Thomas Gottschalk called Drews the “King of Mallorca” and used that title: he quickly established himself as a hit star on Ballermann.
Since then he has traveled extensively in Mallorca, both professionally and privately. He even opened his own bistro on the island with a partner. Of course with the name “King of Majorca”. However, due to the corona pandemic, the restaurant had to close in 2020.
The pop icon is a family man
Jürgen Drews has been married twice so far. Corinna Drews was his first wife: the marriage lasted from 1981 to 1985. Their son Fabian Drews was born in 1981.
In 1994, the pop singer married his current wife Ramona Drews (48). His daughter Joelina Drews (26) was born a year after the wedding. . She is also a singer, sings in German, but tries to stand out from her father’s style of music by adopting a more modern style!
