Enrique Iglesias has a billion reasons to bailar…
The 40-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter’s massive hit “Bailando,” has reached a new milestone, hitting one billion views on YouTube.
Iglesias’ urban-flamenco party anthem featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona is now the first Spanish-language song to reach one billion views online.
“Thank you guys so much for getting Bailando Spanish version to 1 BILLION views. Incredible!!!,” said the “I Like It” singer on Instagram.
Iglesias is currently on his Sex & Love tour, which, to date, has attracted over one million people around the world and counting.
Up next he’s nominated for two Premios Tu Mundo, in the favorite pop artist category and “party-starting song” for “El Perdón,” his other mega-hit with Nicky Jam. A new bilingual version of the song, titled “Forgiveness,” aims to get it a comparable amount of play as its Spanish-language counterpart.
Iglesias will probably have more to toast to in the future. His longtime manager Fernando Giaccardi, who made it onto the 2015 Billboard Latin Power Players List, recently said of his superstar client, “With Enrique, it’s never enough. It’s like, ‘Great, we did this. Now what?’ ”
