When Enrique Iglesias, 39, premiered "Bailando" during the Billboard Latin Music Awards in April, the consensus was immediate: The song was a hit. By midsummer, the irresistible mix of flamenco, pop and reggaeton was a phenomenon; by October, it was the longest-running No. 1 in the history of Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart, breaking Shakira's 25-week record. Aided by a bilingual version, "Bailando" (featuring Bueno and Gente de Zona) also topped Dance Club Songs, rose to No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was a top 40 hit, no doubt aided by a sexy video that was streamed millions of times a week.
