Pitbull’s “Timber” is The Highest-Ranking Song from a Hispanic Artist on Billboard’s Year-End Hot 100 List

Well shiver me timbers! Pitbull is ending the year on a high note…

The 33-year-old Cuban-American rap superstar has landed on Billboard’s year-end Hot 100 list as the highest-ranking Hispanic artist on the chart.

Ke$ha & Pitbull

Pitbull earned his spot on the list with “Timber,” his dancetastic collaboration with Ke$ha.

The former Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 comes in at No. 11 on the year-end list, which is tallied based on radio airplay impressions, sales data and streaming data.

“Timber” is one of the 25 songs featured on DJ Earworm’s “United State of Pop” 2014 mashup.

But Pitbull isn’t the only Hispanic artist to make the final cut…

Christina Aguilera comes in a few notches below Mr. Worldwide. The 33-year-old half-Ecuadorian American singer’s duet with A Great Big World, “Say Something,” comes in at No. 17.

Five spots below Aguilera… Aloe Blacc’s collaboration with Avicii, “Wake Me Up,” the most Shazamed song of all time, comes in at No. 22.

Meanwhile, Enrique Iglesias’ inescapable hit “Bailando” comes in at No. 38 and is the highest-ranking Spanish-language song on the 2014 year-end chart.

The song, featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona, picked up three Latin Grammys at this year’s awards show.

Here’s a look at the other songs from Latino/a artists to make Billboard’s year-end Hot 100 list:

No. 48 Aloe Blacc “The Man”
No. 69 Becky G “Shower”
No. 85 Shakira feat. Rihanna “Can’t Remember to Forget You.”
