Shakira and Bizarrap have made history with a Latin track that’s topped the charts in a way no song before it ever has.
The Colombian songstress and 24-year-old Argentinian DJ and producer – real name Gonzalo Julián Conde – have plenty to celebrate after not only bagging a No.1 together, but also FOUR Guinness World Records titles.
“BZRP Music Sessions Vol. 53” was released on YouTube on 12 January and very quickly made its mark on history.
The song set the record for most viewed Latin track on YouTube in 24 hours with 63,000,000 and then became the fastest Latin track to reach 100 million views on YouTube.
Its success wasn’t exclusive to YouTube though, as it also earned the record for most streamed Latin track on Spotify in 24 hours with 14,393,342 plays by fans.
By the end of the first week, that number grew to a mightily impressive 80,646,962, also making the song the most streamed Latin track on Spotify in one week.
To celebrate their incredible achievements, the duo were greeted backstage at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon by Official Adjudicator Michael Empric, who presented them both with their mountain of Guinness World Records certificates, before they took to the stage to perform their history making track together.
Bizarrap’s Music Sessions has become one of the largest Spanish-speaking platforms out there, with a mammoth 19.1 million subscribers on YouTube.
He’s teamed up with a string of huge music acts for the series, with each one earning tens and even hundreds of millions of views.
He’s the first ever artist from Argentina to reach the No.1 spot on combined Global music charts, a feat he has now accomplished TWICE in just seven months.
He spent two months at No.1 with “Quevedo: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” and has made it to the top spot again with the record-setting “Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53”.
“Hips Don’t Lie” hitmaker Shakira also earned the most No.1s on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart by a female artist thanks to her new song.
This became her 12th No.1 on the chart.
She also became the first female artist to replace herself at No.1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart when “BZRP Music Sessions Vol. 53” dethroned “Monotonía”, her duet with Ozuna.
Shakira has also spent the most cumulative weeks at No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart by a female artist with a huge 67 in total.
The song has also brought Shakira records for:
- The most Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart by a female artist - 33
- The most Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart by a female artist - 35
- The most No.1s on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay chart by a female artist - 21
- The most Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay chart by a female artist - 39
- The most No.1s on Billboard’s Latin Digital Song Sales chart - 13
- First female vocalist to debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 with a Spanish-language track
And finally, she’s also secured the record for most Billboard charts topped by a Spanish-language track by a female artist with 15.
That means this one song has brought Shakira and Bizarrap four records together, with a further 10 for Shakira.
