Enrique Iglesias shoots 5-1 on Hot Latin Songs with "El Perdedor," featuring Marco Antonio Solis, further extending his lead of No. 1s on the chart to a total of 24. Luis Miguel is a distant second with 16 No. 1s.
Iglesias' new track is his second consecutive No. 1 on the chart, having reached the top with "Loco," featuring Romeo Santos, in October. Both songs will appear on the artist's upcoming album "Sex+Love," due out March 18. Universal Music Group unveiled the title and album art on Thursday (Jan. 30).
Iglesias last achieved successive No. 1s in 2010 when "Cuando Me Enamoro" featuring Juan Luis Guerra, was the last in a string of four straight chart-toppers for the superstar singer. That song followed "Donde Estan Corazon" and "Lloro Por Ti" (both from 2008) and "Gracias A Ti" by Wisin & Yandel (2009), on which he was featured.
A music video for "El Perdedor," released on Jan. 20, greatly aids the track's ascent as it received 1.3 million domestic clicks, with 84% of those plays occurring on Vevo on YouTube. "Perdedor" claims both streaming and digital gainer honors, moving 6,000 digital downloads, a 104% surge, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Shakira Shake-Up: Shakira debuts at No. 11 on Hot Latin Songs with "Nunca Me Acuerdo de Olvidarte," the Spanish rendition of her single "Can't Remember To Forget You," featuring Rihanna. Per Hot Latin Songs chart policy- in order to maintain a ranking only of Spanish-language titles- download sales of solely the Spanish version will count towards Hot Latin Songs as will airplay accumulated by either version on BDS-monitored Latin Airplay stations (as opposed to the entire Hot 100 panel, like all other titles where only a Spanish version exists). In addition, a fraction of streaming points will also be used that falls in line with the song's sales ratio of Spanish to English downloads for the week. "Nunca," released a week after its original English debut, sells 7,000 downloads, accounting for 22% of combined versions' 23,000 weekly track sales. The song is the first single from Shakira's self-titled album, due March 25. On the Billboard Hot 100, where it dips 28-61, combined points from both versions factor into its chart rankings.
Ortiz On Top: Gerardo Ortiz hops 2-1 on Regional Mexican Airplay, with "Mujer de Piedra" to seize his third No. 1 on the chart. The song reaches the peak in its 11th week on the chart, rising 6% to 8 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. Ortiz first topped the chart with "Solo Vine a Despedirme" (11 weeks) and "Damaso" (four weeks) in 2012.
