Enrique Iglesias Celebrates 14th No. 1 on Dance Club Songs Chart -- The Most Among Men
"No. 1 on the dance chart … and I don't dance," Iglesias quips to Billboard. "Quite amazing, if you ask me!"
Enrique Iglesias breaks out of a tie for the most No. 1s among solo male artists in the 40-year history of Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart, earning his 14th topper with "Duele El Corazon," featuring Wisin, who earns his first leader. The track rises 2-1 on the chart dated Sept. 17.
"I'm one lucky guy! 'Duele El Corazon' keeps surprising me in all senses," Iglesias tells Billboard. "The song is quite simple and profound at the same time. And, in the end, all we need is love. That give-and-take feeling that moves the world.
