Victor Manuelle is back in the lead…
The 46-year-old Puerto Rican salsa singer, songwriter, and improvisational son singer, has reclaimed the record for the most No. 1s on Billboard’s Tropical Songs chart, as he earns his 26th leader on the Sept. 19-dated chart with “No Queria Enganarte.”
Manuelle’s song steps 2-1 in its seventh week, rising 26 percent in plays at the format, according to Nielsen Music, in the week ending Sept. 6.
Manuelle, known to his fans as El Sonero de la Juventud, breaks a tie with Marc Anthony for the most No. 1s, as “Enganarte” becomes his third chart-topper this year.
The track also climbs seven percent in plays on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay chart (continuing at No. 25 for a second week), aided by a pop version featuring Puerto Rican singer Raquel Sofia.
