Enrique Iglesias Songs & Tour 2014 Dates & Tickets: 'Bailando' Tops the Charts and Surpasses the Million Download Mark
Enrique Iglesias is once again reigning over the charts and breaking records with his latest single "Bailando," and he's probably 'bailando' (dancing) all the way to the bank -- and back to the studio where the music magic happens!
Iglesias' international chart-topping single spent its 22nd consecutive week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs Chart, according to Universal Music Latino. "'Bailando' also surpassed the million download mark in the U.S. and Puerto Rico and becomes one of only 10 Latin songs to surpass the mark."
In the "Dance Club Songs" genre, Iglesias is the No. 1 (1 week) Greatest Gainer for "Bailando" featuring Sean Paul, Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona, Billboard reports.
"Iglesias scores his 13th Dance Club Songs No. 1 with 'Bailando.' With the coronation, he extends his mark for the most No. 1s among males in the chart's 38-year history. Madonna leads all acts with 43 No. 1s."
While he bears the same last name of his famous father, Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias, who's known for his hit song, "To All the Girls I've Loved Before," and he also inherited his good genes, Igelsias is no longer in his father's shadow.
He kicked off his music career in 1995 and "has since solidified himself as one of the most respected and revered stars worldwide." He continues to hold the title of one of the "best-selling Spanish artists in history with sales exceeding 100 million worldwide."
His impressive track record, passion and work ethic has landed him five Top 5 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 with two reaching the top spot. As mentioned, he has set another record by having the most No. 1s -- 13 in total -- on the Dance chart -- the most for any male performer ever.
Most notably, Iglesias has a total of 150 number ones across all Billboard charts. He also is the record holder for most Spanish language singles to hit No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart -- with a total of 24. He's got 25 No. 1s on the Latin Airplay chart and 19 No. 1s on the Latin Pop Airplay chart.
Iglesias is currently on a national tour with Pitbull, which they have extended from 15 to 24 dates. The tour also includes Colombian star J Balvin as the opening act.
