Gloria Estefan Looks Back On Her First HipHopMagz Hot 100 No. 1: ‘I Still Remember the Happiness I Felt’


Gloria Estefan took to Twitter to share an anecdote about a major milestone that happened over 30 years ago.

“@GloriaEstefan earned her first of three No. 1s on the #Hot100 on this day in 1988 with “Anything for You” featuring Miami Sound Machine,” the Billboard Charts Twitter account tweeted on Tuesday (May 14).

Soon after, the Cuban singer reacted to the tweet, recalling the time she found out about her first No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart. “I still remember the happiness I felt when this happened!” she expressed on Twitter. “And the vocal performance on that record was the very first time I sang it, the very day I wrote it,” she noted, adding a red heart emoji.

Before kicking off her successful solo career, Estefan was the lead singer for the Miami-based band Miami Sound Machine, established in 1975 by her husband Emilio Estefan Jr.
