In honor of the Latin pop star's 45th birthday (May 8), Billboard looks at Enrique Iglesias' biggest songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

After 13 prior hits on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart, Iglesias first entered the Hot 100 with "Bailamos" in 1999, which eventually reached No. 1 for two weeks. He has gone on to 25 total entries to date, including the additional chart-topper "Be With You" in 2000.

On Hot Latin Songs, Iglesias boasts a record 27 No. 1s, while 2014's "Bailando," featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona, is the longest-leading No. 1 ever on the chart: 41 weeks.

Additionally, he holds the record for the most No. 1s by a male act on the Dance Club Songs chart: 14. The Spanish artist now ties with David Aude, David Guetta, and Pitbull for the most No. 1s by a male act on the Dance Club Songs chart, all with 14 No. 1s.  He won a Grammy Award in 1996 for best Latin pop performance and has claimed five Latin Grammy Awards.
