Victor Manuelle is nipping on Marc Anthony’s heels…
The 46-year-old Puerto Rican salsa singer’s latest song “Que Suenen Los Tambores” hops 4-1 to crown Billboard’s Tropical Songs chart.
Manuelle’s 24th chart leader extends his mark for second-most No. 1s on the chart, only one No. 1 away from matching Marc Anthony’s 25 toppers. The record has juggled between both artists in the past.
“Que Suenen Los Tambores” grows by 30 percent in spins, to 643, during the tracking week ending November 16, according to Nielsen BDS.
In addition to the salsa cut, a pop-leaning version, “Que Suenen Los Tambores (Pa’l Mundo),” is also being worked at Latin pop outlets.
