Enrique Iglesias crowns Billboard's first-ever Greatest of All Time Latin Artists chart. The Latin pop superstar will officially be honored for the achievement at the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards on Wednesday night, Oct. 21.
Billboard's Greatest of All Time Latin Artists chart is based on a formula blending all titles tallied on both the weekly Hot Latin Songs chart (from its inception on Oct. 4, 1986) and the Top Latin Albums tally (from its start on July 10, 1993) through the charts dated Oct. 10, 2020. (Due to changes in chart methodology and title turnover rates, certain periods for each chart recap were weighted differently to ensure as equal a representation as possible among all eras.)
Iglesias has forged a record-breaking career on the Billboard charts since his first entry, "Si Tú Te Vas," entered Hot Latin Songs just over 25 years ago, on the chart dated Oct. 14, 1995. The single went on to top Hot Latin Songs for eight weeks, becoming his first of a record 27 No. 1s. He has spent a chart-record 189 total weeks at the Hot Latin Songs summit, among his 27 leaders.
