He breaks out of a tie for the third-most top 10s in the chart’s history, trailing only Luis Miguel who continues to lead with 39 and Enrique Iglesias, with 38.

The dancehall/reggaetón song, which Daddy Yankee premiered at the Latin American Music Awardson October 17, debuts in the top tier mostly from streaming activity. 

It bows with 4.1 million streams earned in its first week of release (week ending October 24), according to Nielsen Music, and debuts at No. 17 on the Latin Streaming Songschart.

The song also did well in terms of sales and airplay. It debuts at No. 1 on Latin Digital Song Sales, with 4,000 sold, and enters at No. 24 on Latin Airplay, with 5.3 million in audience.

“Que Tire Pa’Lante” exceeds the Hot Latin Songs chart debut of Daddy Yankee’s predecessor unaccompanied by any other artist on Hot Latin Songs, “Hielo.” The stand-alone single started at No. 42 on the June 9, 2018-dated tally with 1.7 million streams collected in its first week. 

Produced by DJ UrbaRome, the new single concurrently bows at No. 1 on Latin Digital Song Sales, making it Daddy Yankee’s third No. 1 of the year on Latin Digital Song Sales following the collaborative efforts “Runaway” and “China” (July 7 and August 3-dated tallies, respectively). It sold 4,000 downloads in its first tracking week which leads way to a No. 34 debut on the all-genre Digital Song Sales chart.
