The 43-year-old Puerto Rican singer’s collaboration with Rauw Alejandro, “Vacio,” rises 3-1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart dated May 29.

It’s the 12th No. 1 for Luis Fonsi and the fifth for Rauw Alejandro.

“Vacío” was released on February 19 and reigns on the all-Latin genre chart in its 13th week with 10.2 million in audience impressions, up 18%, earned in the week ending May 23, according to MRC Data. That’s a 1.5 million increase in audience from the previous week.

“I’m very grateful that the audience continues to embrace every song I release,” Fonsi tells Billboard. “Having another No. 1 song is not something I take for granted, ever. I work very hard every day to produce the best music I can, and I’m just so happy it’s so well received, and that I’m able to do it with producers and artists that I admire, in this case with Rauw Alejandro who brought his unique talent and flow to the song.”

Luis Fonsi collects his 12th Latin Airplay No. 1 and first since 2019 when “Date La Vuelta,” with Sebastián Yatra and Nicky Jam, ruled for one week. Alejandro nabs his fifth, three of which just arrived in 2021.

“I feel honored to have worked with the maestro Luis Fonsi,” Rauw tells Billboard. “’Vacío’ is a song that allows us to express that bizarre feeling of when one wants to be with someone but it’s unable to. I’m super grateful to be part of this project and even more, to the fans who made it No. 1.”
