Enrique Sets Billboard Record
ENRIQUE IGLESIAS SETS NEW RECORD FOR MOST #1 LATIN SINGLES IN BILLBOARD HISTORY!!
â€˜PARA QUE LA VIDAâ€™ IS HIS 16TH #1 ON BILLBOARD HOT LATIN TRACKS
AND THIRD #1 FROM QUIZAS ALBUM
ENRIQUE WINS BDS â€œMILLION SPINS CERTIFICATIONâ€
Enrique Iglesiasâ€™ newest single â€œPara que la vidaâ€ officially became #1, making it Enriqueâ€™s 16th #1 single on Billboardâ€™s Hot Latin Tracks Chart, setting yet another record for the most #1 singles by any artist on the chart, ever. The news was confirmed by Ricardo Campanioni, Latin Chart Manager for Billboard Magazine.
â€œPara que la vidaâ€ is also the #l most played record on radio this week, according to Neilsen Broadcast Data Systems (BDS), and received over 20 million audience impressions on Latin radio to gain the top spot on the chart.
â€˜Para Que La Vidaâ€™ follows the success of Iglesiasâ€™ previous two #1 singles, â€˜Mentirosoâ€™ (his 14th) & â€˜Quizasâ€™ (his 15th). All three songs are from his current project, QUIZAS, the Spanish language album released late last year. The unprecedented chart success is an accomplishment for the staff at Universal Music Latino whom has been arduously working the album since itâ€™s release.
Launched in September 2002, QUIZAS sold more than 1 million records worldwide its first week out, making it the best selling Spanish language album released in recent years. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard Latin Albums Chart, and had the highest debut ever for a Spanish language album, at #12, on the Billboard chart of Top 200 Albums. QUIZAS was produced by Enrique Iglesias, Lester Mendez and Rafael PerÃ©z Botija.
Enrique also recently became the first and only Latin artist to reach a record breaking one million spins of his songs on National radio, for which Nielsen BDS gave him a â€˜Million Spins Certificationâ€™ award.
Enrique is currently in the studio working on a new English language album, the follow up to the hugely successful ESCAPE. ESCAPE was triple platinum in the U.S., 4 times platinum in the U.K., 5 times Platinum in Ireland, 6 times Platinum in Canada and 4 times Platinum in Australia, 3 times Platinum in India, 2 times platinum in Germany and Platinum and Gold (or their equivalents) in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain and more than 10 other countries. ESCAPE has now sold more than 9 million copies worldwide. All totaled, Enrique has sold over 35 million units worldwide over the course of his career.
