It’s Lucky No. 11 for Romeo Santos…
The 36-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American singer-songwriter has earned his 11th No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Songs with “Bella y Sensual,” featuring Nicky Jam and Daddy Yankee.
The song ascends 2-1 in its 16th week frame — despite a 9 percent decline in audience at the format (8.8 million impressions in the week ending December 17, down 881,000). The song still receives a bullet, despite a decline, as titles in their first week at No. 1 on any chart always receive a bullet.
The song is Santos’ third chart-topper in 2017, following “Imitadora,” which reigned for 10 weeks, and “Heroe Favorito,” which spent eight weeks in the penthouse.
It’s also the fourth career No. 1 for Nicky Jam, and the fifth for Daddy Yankee on the chart.
The song also holds at No. 7 on the Hot Latin Songs chart for a second week. It’s the singer’s 15th top 10 hit on the list.
