MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao’s music continues its steady climb on international music charts.

According to USA Today.com, Pacquiao’s single "Sometimes When We Touch" reached No. 11 on the Secondary Adult Contemporary chart this week.

The song, Pacquiao's duet with singer-songwriter Dan Hill, ranked 29th last June.

"Sometimes When We Touch" is a 1977 ballad written and originally performed by Hill.

The song became popular again after Pacquiao sang it on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show.

The boxing congressman later recorded a version with Hill and released it early this year.
