For the first time in his decades-long career, ranchera icon Vicente Fernandez has the No. 1 song on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. “El Ultimo Beso,” the latest single written by banda legend Joan Sebastian from Fernandez’ blockbuster Sony release “Primera Fila,” jumps from No. 5 to No. 1 this week.

Fernandez, who has shattered box-office records on his latest tour and has topped Billboard’s Top Latin Albums and Mexico’s Amprofon albums charts, has charted on the Hot Latin Songs airplay chart with 50 songs since 1987. Prior single “Para Siempre” made it to No. 2.
