Play associated audio

Although Billboard's Latin Songs chart has long been a crucial indicator for Spanish-language music in the U.S. market, the tune that has topped the chart for the past three weeks isn't actually in Spanish. The international hit, Michel Teló's "Ai Se Eu Te Pego," is the first-ever Portuguese song to hit No. 1 — thanks in part to its popularity on YouTube, as well as with soccer fans.

In advance of the Billboard Latin Music Awards on April 26, Billboard en Español managing editor Judy Cantor-Navas chats with NPR's Guy Raz about Teló and other artists currently heating up the Latin charts.
