Enrique Iglesias Scores 13th #1 Hit, Surpassing both Michael Jackson and Prince!September 11, 2013
Enrique Iglesias has once again conquered the Billboard Dance Chart with his new smash single “Turn Up the Night”—his thirteenth No.1. Already holding the record on the chart for most #1′s, he increases that number yet again.
He shoots past legends including both Michael Jackson and Prince, making him the only male artist in history to enjoy more than eleven number one singles on the Dance Chart. This #1 also arrives at the same moment in which he also currently holds the #1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart as well. The Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum global superstar still reigns as king, following a long tradition of hits such as “I Like It”, “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You)”, “Dirty Dancer”, “Hero”, and more from his iconic catalog. Still, he shows no signs of stopping either.
The single also serves as the lead-off to his hotly anticipated tenth full-length album available soon via Republic Records. Produced by TheCataracs [Selena Gomez,Snoop Dogg], “Turn Up the Night” is a fitting prelude of what’s to come on the record. Once again merging club energy, Latin spirit, and pop prowess, he has built a collection that crosses genre and cultural borders, uniting everyone with truly unforgettable anthems.
Since 1995, Enrique Iglesias has solidified himself as one of the most respected and revered stars worldwide. He remains one of the best-selling Spanish artists in history with sales exceeding 100 million worldwide. To his credit, he’s turned out five top 5 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 with two reaching the top spot as well as 13 number ones on the Dance chart—the most for any male performer ever. Moreover, he has an impressive total of seventy number ones across all Billboard charts. Meanwhile, he also is the record holder for most Spanish language singles to hit number one on the Hot Latin Tracks chart, producing 23 in total. Still, there are even bigger things on the horizon for him.
Once again, the night and the dance floor belong to Enrique Iglesias.
