J Balvin’s “No Es Justo” with Zion & Lennox Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

It’s a little sweet justice for J Balvin

The 33-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer has earned his 12th No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, as “No Es Justo” with Zion & Lennox rising 3-1 in its 16th week on the list (dated November 24).

J Balvin

“It’s really special to have ‘No Es Justo’ reach No. 1 this week,” Balvin tells Billboard. “It’s a blessing to see music from VIBRAS still topping the charts and showing that reggaeton continues to be the sound leading the way in connecting with Latin radio and fans… and it’s an honor to share my 12th No. 1 with creative brothers like Zion & Lennox.”

“No Es Justo” rises to the summit due in part to a 19 percent boost in audience impressions (to 13.1 million) in the week ending November 18, according to Nielsen Music. It’s the sixth No. 1 for Zion & Lennox.

The song is the second charting collaboration from J Balvin with Zion & Lennox. They previously paired up for Zion & Lennox’s former leader “Otra Vez,” featuring J Balvin, which reigned for one week in November 2016.

“No Es Justo” concurrently leads the Latin Pop Songs airplay and the Latin Rhythm airplay charts. On the former, it takes an 18-week trip to the top, becoming the longest climb to No. 1 since December 3, 2016, when Farruko‘s “Chillax,” featuring Ky-Mani Marley reached the top in its 21st week.
