Daddy Yankee is rompe-iendo records…
The 43-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer, songwriter, actor and record producer has broken the record for the most top 10s on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, as “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta,” his collaboration with Marc Anthony, rises 11-8 on the January 16 survey.
Daddy Yankee breaks out of a tie with Enrique Iglesias and takes possession of the mark for the most top 10s since the chart began in 1994.
The song’s advance on the chart was assisted by an 11% boost in audience impressions, to 8 million, collected in the week ending January 10, according to MRC Data.
Going down the list of the artists with at least 25 top 10s in the history of Latin Airplay, only one female act secures a space:
Most Top 10s, Latin Airplay
Daddy Yankee, 41 Enrique Iglesias, 40
J Balvin, 32
Ricky Martin, 27
Marc Anthony, 26
Marco Antonio Solis, 26
Cristian Castro, 25
Wisin & Yandel, 25
“De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” was co-written by Daddy Yankee and Marc Anthony alongside Edgar ‘Edge’ Barrera, Elena Rosa, Rafael A. Pina Nieves and produced by longtime hit maker, Sergio George.
The salsa collaboration is Yankee’s 41st Latin Airplay top 10, dating back to his first top 10 hit “Lo Que Pasó, Pasó” in 2005. Marc Anthony, meanwhile, has logged 26 top 10s in four decades of chart history, 11 of which have hit No. 1.
Elsewhere, “De Vuelta” dips 13-14 on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart with declines in digital sales and streams. On Tropical Airplay, however, it remains at No. 1 for a third week.
