And it finally happened! After nearly four months on top of the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, Marc Anthony’s spicy Salsa hit “Vivir Mi Vida” has been forced to leave that precious spot to Prince Royce’s “Darte Un Beso,” the fourth #1 hit that the popular Bachata artist has placed on these prestigious rankings.
Since the moment it was released, “Darte Un Beso” has taken the Latin music world by storm. According to Nielsen SoundScan, last week this refreshing Bachata single gained 24% on digital sales and 21% at radio. Similarly, the video of the song, which is getting closer to the 5 million view mark on YouTube, has been making a huge contribution to the overall popularity of this track.
Besides the Hot Latin Songs chart, “Darte Un Beso” is also the number one song in the Latin Airplay, Latin Streaming Songs and Tropical Songs rankings. Prince Royce’s recently forged partnership with Sony Music Latin looks definitely promising.
