It’s an extra special first for Becky G…
The 17-year-old Mexican American singer/rapper has climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Rhythm Airplay chart with “Can’t Get Enough” (featuring Pitbull), resulting in her first Billboard chart-topper.
The track, which Becky G released in English and Spanish, also gives Pitbull his fifth No. 1 on the chart. The coronation additionally scores the track’s producer, Dr. Luke, his first No. 1 on any Latin ranking.
Becky G, who was named Best New Artist at this year’s Radio Disney Music Awards, has been a protégé of Dr. Luke since he signed her to his Kemosabe Records imprint in 2011.
“Can’t Get Enough” enters Hot Latin Songs as the Hot Shot Debut at No. 10.
Per chart policy, in order to maintain its standing as a Spanish-language-based songs chart, only download sales of the Spanish version will count toward Hot Latin Songs, as will airplay accumulated by either version on Nielsen BDS-monitored Latin Airplay stations.
In addition, a portion of streaming points are incorporated, mirroring the song’s ratio of Spanish-to-English weekly download sales.
On Latin Airplay, the track leaps 21-2, climbing to 10.7 million audience impressions, a 90 percent surge.
A music video for the song is expected to be released on VEVO shortly.
Becky G is set to be a supporting act on a handful of Katy Perry dates on her Prismatic World Tour, which includes two shows in Mexico in October.
