It’s a special first for Karol G…
The 27-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer/songwriter has notched her first No. 1 on any Billboard airplay chart as “Mi Cama” rises 5-1 on the Latin Airplay chart.
The song, a collaboration with J Balvin and Nicky Jam, lifts thanks to a 32 percent gain in audience impressions in the week ending August 19, according to Nielsen Music.
The track was originally released May 11 and received its Nicky Jam and J Balvin-assisted remix on July 13, steadily rising in airplay since. Concurrently, “Mi Cama” becomes her first Latin Rhythm Airplay No. 1, lifting 5-1.
“For my song to hit No. 1 among so many others, so much talent, and so much good music is huge and at the same time hard to describe,” Karol G tells Billboard. “’Mi Cama’ vibrates to the rhythm of my dreams, and finding out about this achievement gives me all the motivation to look forward to the next chapter with more confidence. Extremely grateful!”
