MOST NUMBER ONES FOR ANY MALE ARTIST IN HISTORY

“BAILANDO” CERTIFIED PLATINUM BY RIAA

TWENTY-TWO WEEKS AT #1 ON BILLBOARD HOT LATIN SONGS CHART

Continuing a scorching hot streak, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS breaks another record with the 2014 smash “Bailando”—available on his tenth full-length album SEX AND LOVE [Republic Records]. The platinum-certified anthem has ascended to #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Song Chart, earning the Grammy Award-winning global icon his 13th number one and even besting his own record, previously 12th. To date, he has scored more number ones on the chart than any other male artist in history—including Michael Jackson and Prince. Online, it has accumulated over half a billion views.

The success of “Bailando” stands truly unparalleled. It became the first non-English single to land in the Top 10 at Top 40 radio since Los del Rio’s “Macarena” in 1996. Moreover, it enjoys the longest run at #1 for any artist in 2014, holding the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart for 22 weeks and marking his 25th No. 1 on that chart. Among other accolades, it’s the highest-charting Spanish single in the United States ever. Internationally, it captured #1 on iTunes in over 50 countries, including a 22-week stint in Spain and a 13-week stint in Mexico.

Right now, ENRIQUE is lighting up arenas across the country on his co-headline tour with Pitbull and J Balvin. The jaunt continues heating up the fall through its close on December 13 at the Crocus Hall in Moscow, RU.
