Enrique Iglesias is extending his chart reign…

The 41-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter’s latest single “Subeme La Radio,” featuring Descemer Bueno and Zion & Lennox, steps 2-1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (dated April 15).

The track rises 4 percent to 21.5 million audience impressions (in the week ending April 2, according to Nielsen Music), extending Iglesias’ record for the most No. 1s ever on the 22-year-old list to 29.

Iglesias holds a large lead, with 13 more chart-topping hits than Ricky Martin, who is in second place with 16.

Iglesias first topped the chart in 1995 when “Si Tu Te Vas” spent eight weeks at No. 1.

Iglesias not only holds the most No. 1s on the Latin Airplay chart, he has also spent the most weeks at the top of the chart: 159 weeks. Seven of his songs have exceeded 10 weeks at No. 1.

Only one other act has had multiple songs spend 10 or more weeks at No. 1: Juanes, who notched two long-running chart leaders with “Me Enamora” (20 weeks in 2007) and “Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor” (12 weeks in 2004).

Iglesias’ longest-running chart-topper, “Bailando,” featuring Bueno and Gente de Zona, led the list for 20 weeks. (Shakira holds the record for longest-running No. 1, 25 weeks, earned in 2005 with “La Tortura,” featuring Alejandro Sanz).

Artists with the most weeks at No. 1 on Latin Airplay:
Artist, Total weeks at No. 1

Enrique Iglesias, 159
Shakira, 63
Juanes, 56
Marc Anthony, 45
Ricky Martin, 44
Romeo Santos, 42
Don Omar, 40

Over on the multi-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, “Subeme” rises 4-3, aided in part by a 4 percent increase in streams, to 3.2 million — its best streaming week yet. The single became Iglesias’ 40th career hit on the chart when it debuted at No. 3 on the March 18-dated ranking.
