The 33-year-old Dominican singer has joined voices with Nicky Jam, Manuel Turizo and Myke Towers for “Despacio,” her first official single of the year.
Natasha released “Despacio” and its accompanying video on Monday via Pina Records.
It’s an urban pop song that, according to Natasha, everyone can identify with as the artists sing about enjoying the moment while in love with someone — without feeling the need to rush it, because it can be done despacio.
The song was released alongside a music video directed by Daniel Durán, in which the artists seem to be from another planet.
The 42-year-old Puerto Rican rapper/singer nabs his eighth straight No. 1 of the year, and 18th overall, on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart dated December 21 as “Que Tire Pa Lante” hits No. 1 in its eighth week on the list.
The dancehall uptempo reggaetón track, released October 18, adds to the list of now 18 leaders on the chart for Daddy Yankee, which dates back to 2005 when the 15-week ruler “Rompe” arrived at No. 1 in its fourth week.
Daddy Yankee now ties with J Balvinfor the second-most leaders on the Latin Airplay chart, which began in 1994, both with 18, trailing only Enrique Iglesiaswho continues at the helm with 30.
“Que Tire Pa Lante,” which features uncredited cameos by Anuel AA, Darell, Natti Natasha, Wisin and Lennox, leads through a 28% boost in audience impressions (to 9.4 million) in the week ending December 15, according to Nielsen Music.
With “Que Tire Pa Lante” at the helm Daddy Yankee rises to 64 weeks in the penthouse for his Latin Airplay chart career, the third and only urban act with the most weeks at the summit, behind Latin pop acts Iglesias (160) and Shakira (68).
Here’s a look at Daddy Yankee’s entire No. 1 collection on Latin Airplay:
Song Title, Artist (if other than Daddy Yankee), Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
