Prince Royce is back atop the Billboard charts…
The 24-year-old Dominican American singer rises from second to first place on the Hot Latin Songs chart with “Darte Un Beso,” capturing his fourth No. 1 on the chart and ending Marc Anthony‘s 16-week streak at the helm with “Vivir Mi Vida.”
Royce’s “Darte Un Beso” sold 6,000 digital downloads (a 24% gain, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and increased 21% at radio (to nearly 14 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS).
A video for the track, launched on August 20, contributes to a 78% increase in U.S. streams to 1.05 million, also according BDS. 94% of those were on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Enrique Iglesias debuts at No. 8 on the Hot Latin Songs chart with “Loco,” featuring Romeo Santos. The Bachata track is Iglesias’s 32nd top 10 on the list, reinforcing his status as the artist with the second most top 10s on the chart. He follows Luis Miguel who leads all acts with 39.
“Loco’s” ranking is a result of less than a week’s worth of airplay and digital sales. The track was released to both radio and digital retailers on Friday, August 23.
In just under three full days, the track sold 3,000 downloads. “Loco” is the second single and first in Spanish from Iglesias’s upcoming album.
