    "Gasolina" by Daddy Yankee did in 2004.

    Australia #12
    Austria #9
    Denmark #2
    Europe (European Hot 100 singles) #8
    France #12
    Germany #7
    Greece #2
    Ireland #5
    Italy #2
    Netherlands #16
    Norway #4
    Switzerland #5
    UK #5
    US #32


    And it smashed because of the song itself , he didn't have the "Laundry Service" hype to rely on.

    Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony were not Reggaeton artists (which is the current movement that is setting streaming charts on fire) and in fact reggaeton was not even popular or mainstream here in Latin America until 2004.

    Back then anglo artists would not aknowledge reggaeton or urbal latin genres AT ALL either. Fergie was lowkey the first anglo diva who did and patterned with a reggaeton artist.

    Many of these artists wanting to collaborate with latin stars now and favouring the latin fever and reggaeton . . . . . Demi with Luis Fonsi, Beyoncé with J Balvin, Madonna with Maluma, Katy Perry and Janet Jackson with Daddy Yankee, and it seems like it's a thing now.

    It only makes me realize how ahead of her time Fergie actually was when she collaborated with Daddy Yankee in this ancient 2007 Reggaeton latin smash

    Bey is all about quantity now, so of course you're getting more. She's been popping out albums at a faster rate than other women can pop out her children. She just released a live album and she's widely expected to release a soundtrack AND another studio album this year. That would make 5 albums in a little over 3 years.

    Wasn’t the talk Bey was into eclipses now and the album was speculated to come out at the next eclipse? Her fans are crazy, but I’m sure I read that somewhere

    I can only hope that, at the age of 7, Blue doesn't already have a mobile phone and therefore a mobile number... The next studio album by Beyoncé could, imo, be released anytime soon though, if you ask me. It's been a while since a new album by anyone really got me anticipating its release...

    I agree. Taylor Swift is able to write good songs; the album 'Speak Now' alone proves that (and she was 20 by the time she has written it all on her own). It's just that she feels like she needs to cater to both audiences, the one who likes the deeper messages and the one who likes her 'fun songs'. And this results in an album featuring both 'Gorgeous' as well as 'New Year's Day'. Maybe she fears that an album full of 'New Year's Day' could stop her from being one of the few US acts who's still able to shift high amounts of albums. On the other hand, as you wrote, '1989' is her closest effort to a perfect pop album, which is why she ended up winning 'Album of the Year' at the Grammys. I could've lived without 'Shake It Off' though, but she seems to love those 'childish' lead singles (see 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' or 'Look What You Made Me Do').

    ^ Ofcourse she and her team have that fear. Especially since she just signed with a new label, and this is her first release, ofcourse they want to milk out her succes!

    She is a smart woman who knows what she is doing, but lyricly and musicly she hasnt been on top of her game. She could do better. I mean, is the woman who writes "Gorgeous" and "Spelling is fun, there is no i in team," the same woman as the woman who wrote "all too well," or "blank space"? My theory is that she cant write that good songs ever since is with Joey, so he must be the one

    It's a shame Taylor Swift is having a hard time keeping up with the quality. She really delivered with "1989", that album and pop may not be everyone's cup of tea but It was indeed a very well crafted and solid record which sounded to me like she would be going up from there but she kinda lost it instead, "Reputation" was a huge downgrade for her, I know she's still huge commercially-wise but the quality has just dropped a lot, "Reputation" was not as well received as her previous records and was the first time in years Grammys didn't kiss her ass and MTV snubbed her and then she releases this new song "ME" which is a total regression that puts her far away from any progress, the song is literal for children and kindergarden parties.

    I feel like Taylor could explore more but I think there's so much pressure on her shoulder (due to the fact that she's like the biggest pop star of the last 10 years) that it makes the evolving proccess slower and traps her into this Childish Teeny Pop perfect America's Sweetheart music icon. I feel like there's a lot of fear about losing that commercial success she and her team are having.

    B is the most scripted creature in the business. But self-titled is one of the greatest albums ever and shits on Orange Juice.
