For the second time this year, Enrique Iglesias snatches the title for most dance hits at #1 from the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Back in February of this year, Enrique Iglesias had become the male artist with the most chart topping dance hits in history.

But defending his title from the great beyond, MJ’s “Hollywood Tonight” became number one in charts over the summer, tying at 8 number one hits with Enrique.

“Dirty” became Iglesias lucky number 9, and the song that made him the record holder for the male artist with the most songs at #1.

The artist with the most number 1 dance hits ever, is Madonna with 40; a record that Enrique has a shot at, that is if Michael Jackson quits being so awesome and danceable, even after death.
