The unlikely, international story behind Iglesias' latest Latin-to-pop chart-topping single
Latin's crossover king is at it again. Enrique Iglesias' "Bailando" is the crooner's record 25th No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart - for 14 weeks in a row. It also rises 15-13 on the Billboard Hot 100 dated Aug. 16, aided by a Spanglish remix (featuring a Sean Paul guest rap), a rare feat for a predominantly Spanish track. And its backstory is just as improbable. "Bailando" started as a co-write between Iglesias and longtime collaborator Descemer Bueno, but was shelved.
