"Que No Se Rompa la Noche" ("May the Night Have No End") is a ballad written and produced by Spanish singer-songwriter Manuel Alejandro, co-written by Ana Magdalena, and performed by Spanish singer Julio Iglesias. It was released as the second single from his studio album Un Hombre Solo in 1987. This song became his second number one hit in the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart, after his previous single "Lo Mejor de Tu Vida".
"Que No Se Rompa la Noche" was released as the second single from Iglesias' Un Hombre Solo and became his second number-one hit in the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks, and his last on this chart as a solo artist, until "Torero", his duet with José Luis Rodríguez "El Puma" in 1992. This ballad, written by Manuel Alejandro and Ana Magdalena, is a love plea, and Iglesias is asking to his lover to stay all night with him, and he will drive her wild, because he has dreams, caresses and kisses in store.
The song debuted on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart at number 14 on August 29, 1987 and climbed to the top of the chart twelve weeks later. It spent two weeks at number-one, replacing "Ahora Te Puedes Marchar" by Luis Miguel and being replaced by "Y Tú También Llorarás" by José Luis Rodríguez "El Puma". "Que No Se Rompa la Noche" spent 29 weeks on the chart and ranked at number 16 in the Hot Latin Tracks Year-End Chart of 1988.
