ENRIQUE IGLESIAS ACHIEVES NEW RECORD FOR LONGEST RUN AT NUMBER ONE ON BILLBOARD’S HOT LATIN SONGS CHART
NEW YORK, NY (October 30, 2014) – ENRIQUE IGLESIAS remains unstoppable with his record-setting, platinum-selling hit “Bailando”.
After smashing the record for “most number ones on Billboard‘s Dance Club Song Chart”and being the first non-English single to land in the Top 10 at Top 40 radio since Los del Rio’s “Macarena” in 1996, the single has dominated the Hot Latin Songs Chart at #1 for over 26 consecutive weeks. This marks the “longest run at #1 on Billboard‘s Hot Latin Songs Chart” in history, trumping previous record-holder Shakira, and another massive achievement for the Grammy Award-winning international legend. “Bailando” is just one of many standouts from his tenth full-length album SEX AND LOVE [Republic Records]. Enrique spoke to Billboard about the record breaking achievement commenting, “I do my best and put so much enthusiasm into songs, songwriting and videos. But, ultimately, it comes down to the fans and how they react. If it wasn’t for them, really, the song wouldn’t be the hit that it’s been.” Read the full article onBillboard.com here.
ENRIQUE also announced today, the second U.S. leg of his arena tour to kick off in January. Tickets for the second leg go on sale November 6th, with the tour starting in El Paso Janurary15th and wrapping in Chicago February 20th, see listing below. A recent hometown stop in Miami proved to be a rousing sold out affair. The Miami Herald commenting that the performance of “Bailando,” “sent the entire arena into an ecstatic roaring, singing, dancing frenzy.” Next up the tour heads overseas through December 13 at the Crocus Hall in Moscow, RU.
Still, this is only the beginning for ENRIQUE IGLESIAS and “Bailando”. This worldwide anthem shows no signs of stopping.
