It’s a sweet surprise for Ozuna…
The 28-year-old Puerto Rican reggaeton and Latin trap singer’s “Caramelo” has risen to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, dated August 15, giving him his 20th leader on the list which launched in 1994.
The song jumps 5-1 in its eighth week on the chart (up 41% in audience impressions to 1 million) in the week ending August 9, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The new achievement places Ozuna in a tie with Daddy Yankee for the third-most No. 1s among all acts on the Latin Airplay chart, both with 20. Above them is Enrique Iglesias at the helm with 31 No. 1s and J Balvin at No. 2 with 23.
“ I am extremely grateful for the great support and acceptance that ‘Caramelo’ has had,” Ozuna tells Billboard. “I am extremely happy with the news that there are already 20 No 1 singles in my career. We are working hard to continue providing good music. Stand by for ENOC, coming soon.”
“Caramelo” is the first single off Ozuna’s forthcoming album.
