Fans of international pop star Enrique Iglesias had an extra reason to celebrate during the singer’s concert in Mexico at the weekend.
Guinness World Records was on site to honour the star with official certificates recognising his achievements for the Longest stay at No.1 of the Hot Latin Songs chart, and for the Most No.1 hits in the Hot Latin Songs chart.
Enrique achieved these records with his hit single Bailando which was at the top of the charts for 41 weeks and with a total of 26 no. 1 hits in the Hot Latin Songs charts, respectively.
The singer is one of the most renowned Latin pop artists of all time, having sold over 137 million albums worldwide in a career that has seen him win three Latin Grammys.
Throughout this time, the 40-year-old has been a fixture in the Hot Latin Songs Charts published by Billboard Magazine, which collates the most popular songs on a weekly basis.
After presenting Enrique with his certificate, following his show at Jardines de Mexico in Morelos, Guinness World Records adjudicator Carlos Martinez said: “"It was a pleasure recognising one of the most important artists in the history of Latin music with his GWR records. We wish him the best of luck and we are sure he will be breaking his own records soon".
On his Guinness World Records achievement, Enrique said “I loved to read the Guinness World Records book at home when I was a kid so it makes me very happy to receive these awards today.”
