Colombia, Haiti: Shakira & Wyclef Hit #1 in Billboard Hot 100

Colombia's Shakira has hit #1 on the Billboard single charts, with her single, Hips Don't Lie, a duet with Haitian-American rapper Wyclef Jean. That is quite a feat, considering how segmented the charts and radio are these days.

'HIPS' HOPS TO NO. 1: A 9-1 move for "Hips Don't Lie" (Epic) puts Shakira and featured guest Wyclef Jean at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, the first time in pole position for both artists and the first time that a song with the word "hips" in the title has led the chart.

Shakira's highest position on the Hot 100 until now was the No. 6 ranking of her first chart entry, "Wherever, Whenever," in December 2001. She was last in the top 10 with "Underneath Your Clothes" (No. 9 in May 2002).

The rest here

This is probably the first #1 for a Colombian singer, and for a Haitian-American, Apparently, even the Fugees, Killing Me Softly was not even a top-10 hit back in the day.

I think it's hard to resist this beat! Shakira is very talented! However, almost everywhere we go today ... boutiques, shops, restaurants, etc ... even commercials ... we can't help but notice that the music being played tends to have the Latin sounds ... and influence ... Let's not forget that others like, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, Santana, Gypsy Kings, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, and Gloria Estefan and others ... are only a few of those whom we have been able to enjoy in main radio stations ... :) Melek
