Enrique Iglesias’ fans continue dancing to the rhythms of "Bailando," featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente De Zona. The Latin anthem, released in 2014, has established a new record, hitting two billion views on YouTube.

Back in August 2015, the song achieved its first billion views (becoming the first Spanish-language song to hit the digit) and now, 20 months after, it reaches the new figure.

The Spanish singer revealed the news in his social media. “Thank you to all my fans! I love you guys!” he wrote.

"Bailando” holds the record as the longest-running No. 1 ever in the history of Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart. It not only spent 41 weeks at the top of the chart, but also rose to No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, aided by a Spanglish remix (featuring a Sean Paul guest rap), a rare feat for a predominantly Spanish track.

"You never know where a hit is going to come from. There's just something about this song," Iglesias told Billboard in a previous interview.

 

Thank you to all my fans!!! Muchas gracias!!! I love you guys!!!
