Enrique Iglesias is definitely not el perdedor when it comes to No. 1 songs on the Billboard charts…
The 38-year-old Spanish singer’s latest single “El Perdedor,” featuring Marco Antonio Solis, has reached the summit on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.
Iglesias’ latest chart-topper extends his lead of No. 1s on the chart to a total of 24. Luis Miguel is a distant second with 16 No. 1s.
Iglesias’ new track is his second consecutive No. 1 on the chart, having reached the top with “Loco,” featuring Romeo Santos, in October.
Both songs will appear on his upcoming album Sex+Love, which is due out on March 18. Universal Music Group unveiled the title and album art on Thursday.
Iglesias last achieved successive No. 1s in 2010 when “Cuando Me Enamoro” featuring Juan Luis Guerra, was the last in a string of four straight chart-toppers for the superstar singer. That song followed “Donde Estan Corazon” and “Lloro Por Ti” (both from 2008) and “Gracias A Ti” by Wisin & Yandel (2009), on which he was featured.
The recently released music video for “El Perdedor” has greatly aided the track’s ascent as it received 1.3 million domestic clicks, with 84% of those plays occurring on VEVO on YouTube.
“Perdedor” claims both streaming and digital gainer honors, moving 6,000 digital downloads, a 104% surge, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
