Enrique Iglesias Celebrates As 'Bailando' Video Tops 2 Billion Views
Enrique Iglesias celebrated a milestone over the weekend — the Spanish version of his song “Bailando” reached a staggering 2 billion views on YouTube.
The 2014 song, which features Descemer Bueno and Gente De Zona, hit the billion mark in August 2015 — making it the first Spanish-language song to do so.
“Thank you to all my fans!!! Muchas gracias!!! I love you guys!!!,” Iglesias wrote on Instagram.
In terms of total views, “Bailando” is catching up to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” and not far behind “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars. Canada’s Justin Bieber has the third most-watched YouTube video — his video for “Sorry” is at 2.4 billion.
YouTube’s most-viewed video is “Gangnam Style,” which has been seen 2.8 billion times.
Iglesias’ “Bailando” also holds the record for staying at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart — a whopping 41 weeks!
The video for the English version of the track, which adds Sean Paul to the mix, has racked up an impressive 222 million views.
Adele’s made-in-Quebec video for “Hello,” directed by homegrown talent Xavier Dolan, will soon top 2 billion views.
