  • I'm not sure I would consider Knowles a singer-songwriter. She might be singer and a songwriter, meaning she occasionally writes some music in her songs, but a singer-songwriter is someone that writes and composes all of their own material, McCartney, Lennon, Carey, Dylan, Morissette etc. I highly doubt she does that.

      • I'm sorry to butt in middle of the a review, but this song did not reach number-one on the Hot Latin Songs chart. It does not appear in any of the lists of number-one Latin Songs nor on Allmusic. In fact, it did not chart on the Latin Songs at at all. Instead, it reached number twenty-three on the Latin Pop Songs chart. Source. Magiciandude (talk) 04:56, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
But i have also sourced the chart position. Wait i will verify in Billboard archive. JiveshTalk2Me 07:45, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
