Cardi B has added another chart-topper to her resume…
The 25-year-old half-Dominican American rapper has earned her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart dated March 3, as her collaboration with Ozuna “La Modelo,” zooms 12-1 in its seventh week.
It’s Ozuna’s second No. 1 on the chart.
The track, which earns Greatest Gainer honors, rises a whopping 70 percent in audience in the week ending February 25, according to Nielsen Music, climbing to 16.84 million.
It’s the second song to vault to No. 1 from outside the top 10 in 2018, following Jennifer Lopez’s “Amor, Amor, Amor,” featuring Wisin, which also rose 12-1 (February 3).
Prior to Lopez, Don Omar and Zion & Lennox did it a little over a year ago with “Te Quiero Pa’mi,” jumping 11-1 on the December 24, 2016-dated chart.
“I’m super happy with this No. 1,” Ozuna tells Billboard. “My team and I have worked extra hard to achieve it. I thank God for everything that is happening in my career, my family and followers for the support, and of course, my friend Cardi B for being part of this. I am extremely thankful with her for giving me this opportunity and working with me on ‘La Modelo.'”
Ozuna first led Latin Airplay as the featured act on Wisin’s “Escapate Conmigo,” which spent one week at No. 1 (Sept. 9, 2017), after holding in the top 10 for 16 weeks.
Over on the Hot Latin Songs chart — which blends airplay, sales, and streams — “La Modelo” rises 6-5 as the chart’s greatest gainer in airplay. Ozuna collects his fourth top five on the list and his third this year. Concurrently, the track ascends 86-72 on the Billboard Hot 100.
On the Top Latin Albums chart, Ozuna’s Odisea spends a 26th week at No. 1, tying with Ricky Martin’s Vuelve for the fourth-most weeks ever atop the 24-year-old list.
