Nicky Jam returns to #1 on two Billboard charts as co-writer of “Sunset,” performed by Farruko

Nicky Jam‘s career is firing on all cylinders. He recently wrapped up a tour of Europe, where his international smash “El Perdón,” feat. Enrique Iglesias, topped the charts. This song has already earned him Song of the Year awards in many countries.
Now, this SESAC Latina affiliate is involved with another #1 Billboard hit as a featured performer and co-writer. With “Sunset,” this pioneering Latin-urban artist currently tops two Billboard charts.
As a guest artist of Farruko, Nicky Jam participates on this track which is #1 on theBillboard magazine Latin Rhythm Airplay and Latin Airplay charts for the week of November 7, 2015. “Sunset”‘s other guest artist is Shaggy.
Meanwhile, “El Perdón” continues to dazzle us with its historic accomplishments. As writer and co-performer with Enrique Iglesias, Nicky Jam enjoyed an amazing 30-week run at #1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart with this iconic hit. This highly competitive chart tallies radio plays and total audience for all current Latin singles in the United States and Puerto Rico.
Released in English as “Forgiveness,” the unstoppable “El Perdón” remains at#1 on the Billboard Latin Streaming Songs chart for the 17th week, and is still at #2 on Hot Latin Songs and #4 on Latin Airplay, making it the undisputed biggest Latin hit of the year.
