Henry Santos is livin’ La Vida at the top of his game…
The 34-year-old Dominican singer-composer and former Aventura band member’s latest single “La Vida,” featuring MaFFio, jumps 4-1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart to secure his second No. 1 on the list as a lead artist.
In addition, Santos’ urban infused merengue track grows 21 percent at the format (to 609 plays), taking Greatest Gainer honors.
Santos – the record holder for successfully completing and winning, undefeated and never nominated for elimination, on Mira Quien Baila, a dancing competition on Univision – previously reached the summit on the Tropical Airplay chart for a single frame with “My Way” in May 2013.
Santos’ cousin, and former Aventura band-mate Romeo Santos, has topped Tropical Airplay on seven occasions, while the band itself enjoyed eight trips to the peak during its time together.
