Bad Bunny continues volando into the record books…
The 27-year-old Puerto Rican singer has collected his record-extending 42nd and 43rd top 10s on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as “De Museo” rises 11-8 and “Volando,” by Mora, Bad Bunny and Sech, debuts at No. 7, on the July 24-dated survey.
The former rises on the strength of streaming activity: It earned 6.2 million U.S. streams, up 34%, in the week ending July 15, according to MRC Data.
As for “Volando,” the cut — which was originally a solo track by Mora — garnered a new remix on July 8 with Bad Bunny and Sech. As the remix drives the bulk of the song’s chart activity, all three artists are credited. It’s the first top 10 for Mora. The track registered 6.4 million streams in the U.S., enough for a No. 5 start on Latin Streaming Songs.
Bad Bunny’s 43 top 10s are the most since the chart launched in 1986. Enrique Iglesias and Luis Miguel continue to be tied for the second-most, both with 39.
