Three Latin music genres were tops this year - reggeaton, salsa and bachata with reggaeton opening 2013 at the top. It was Wisin & Yandel featuring Chris Brown & T-Pain started off 2013 with "Algo Me Gusta de Ti" at the number one spot for three weeks with Tito El Bambino featuring Marc Anthony stepping in with "¿Por Qué Les Mientes?" in between "Algo Me Gusta de Ti" but only for one week. Then stepped in reggaeton singer Daddy Yankee, he took over with his hit "Limbo" where he hung onto the number one spot for 15 weeks.
With reggaeton and bachata hitting the top of the charts in the past and setting aside other music genres, it didn't last too long right after salsa singer Marc Anthony debuted with his "Vivir Mi Vida" at his Foxwood's concert and then at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in April before it was launched for radio airplay in May. The song immediately hit the top music charts and top radio airplay. "Vivir Mi Vida" has been the longest number one song for 16 consecutive weeks that is. Although the salsa hit was bumped by the bachata song of Prince Royce "Darte Un Beso" at week 37, Marc's hit song didn't fall below the top four spot.
Closing at the latter part of the year, Prince was in and out of the top spot with Romeo Santos' "Propuesta Indecente" and Enrique Iglesias featuring Romeo Santos' "Loco" stepping in at the top spot. "Darte Un Beso" was number one for 10 weeks, "Propuesta Indecente" and "Loco" each song was number one for three weeks with the latter being number one for the week of December 21 (week 52).
