Anuel AA’s Single “China,” with Daddy Yankee, Karol G, J Balvin & Ozuna, Rises to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart

Anuel AA is back at the top of the charts…

The 26-year-old Puerto Rican rapper and singer’s latest single “China,” featuring Daddy YankeeKarol GOzuna and J Balvin, rises 2-1 in just its third week on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart dated August 17.

It’s the fastest climb to the top in 2019 and the quickest ascent since Bad Bunny’s “MIA,” featuring Drake, jumped 9-1 in its second week (October 27, 2018).

“I’m extremely happy, blessed and grateful to God and my fans,” Anuel AA tells Billboard. “I thank my colleagues for trusting me, my team for their great work and giving their 200% to make this dream come true.”

“China” is a reimagination of Shaggy’s 2000 hit “It Wasn’t Me.” It was produced by Tainy and co-written by the five artists on the track. 

It opened at No. 2 just three weeks ago, on the August 3-dated list.

“The artists on this track give it an elevated presence right out of the gate given the caliber of each individually and the power they present here collectively,” Ismael Santa Cruz, Vice President, Managing Director Radio Strategy at Univision Communications, tells Billboard. “The fact that the track samples a hit from 19 years ago also helps it build a foundation from which to grow on.”

Despite the song’s decline in streaming activity and digital sales (in the week ending August 8, according to Nielsen Music), “China” moves thanks to 6% boost in audience impressions (to 8 million) earned in the week ending August 11.

The Hot Latin Songs chart ranks the most popular Latin songs of the week, blending streaming, sales and airplay data.

“‘China’ is the strongest song of my career up to date,” Anuel AA told Billboard on July 12. “It’s the mix of different cultures with each of the collaborators contributing with its own flow. I had been looking to revive a classic and when I heard Shaggy’s mix, it hit me.”

“China” is Anuel AA’s third leader, Daddy Yankee’s seventh, Karol G’s second, Ozuna’s fourth, and J Balvin’s sixth. Notably, Karol G becomes the first core Latin female artist to secure a No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs tally in over a year — since Karol herself led the list. Her first No. 1 arrived on May 12, 2018, with “Dame Tu Cosita,” a co-billed track with Pitbull and El Chombo, featuring Cutty Ranks. It topped the list for two weeks. 

“The inclusion of Karol G helped the track,” Santa Cruz adds. “It was important to include a female artist in the song. This is a great time for female artists in the Latin rhythmic space as they are driving a lot of momentum and bringing a fresh sound.”

Prior to Karol G, the last time a core Latin female artist ranked at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs was way back in early 2017, when Shakira’s “Chantaje,” featuringMaluma, wrapped up 10 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 on the February 11, 2017-dated list.

Since then, three women who traditionally have only charted with English-language recordings have claimed the crown: Selena Gomez and Cardi B (featured on DJ Snake‘s “Taki Taki,” alongside Ozuna; 13 nonconsecutive weeks starting October 13, 2018) and Beyoncé (featured on J Balvin and Willy William‘s “Mi Gente”; 10 consecutive weeks starting October 21, 2017).

Beyond “China’s” coronation on Hot Latin Songs, the tune also climbs to a new high on the Latin Digital Songs Sales and Latin Streaming Songs chart through an equal 2-1 boost.

On the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, “China” lifts 44-43.

Selena Gomez Earns First No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart with “Taki Taki”

It’s a special first for Selena Gomez

The 26-year-old Mexican American singer/actress has earned her first chart-topper on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart with “Taki Taki,” her collaboration with DJ Snake, Cardi B and Ozuna.

Selena Gomez

The track climbs 2-1 on the December 8-dated chart, as “Taki Taki” ascends with a 14 percent lift in audience, rising to 14.53 million audience impressions in the week ending December 2, according to Nielsen Music.

It’s the first leader for DJ Snake, the eighth for Ozuna and third for Cardi B.

Gomez first entered the chart in 2013 with “Come & Get It,” and “Taki Taki” marks her first ranking in Latin Airplay’s top 40.

The rise earns Cardi B her third chart topper and the eighth for Ozuna, seven of his No. 1s have arrived in 2018.

Notably, DJ Snake is the first European DJ/producer to lead the Latin Airplay chart in 2018. He’s also the first DJ/producer to be No. 1 in a lead role on a track since Willy William — another DJ/producer of French descent — topped the list with “Mi Gente.” The latter, credited to J Balvinand Willy William (and featuring Beyoncé on a popular remix), was No. 1 for 12 nonconsecutive weeks between September 16 and December 16, 2017.

Échale la culpa a Luis Fonsi

Luis Fonsi & Demi Lovato

YouTube has released the official list of the new Latin videos that have reached the billion views, with the 40-year-old Puerto Rican singer-songwriter’s collaboration with Demi Lovato making the grade.

In 2018, nineteen Latin videos have joined the elite club, including Fonsi’s clip for his single with the 26-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress, “Échame La Culpa.”

It all started when “Bailando” by Enrique Iglesias featuring Gente de Zona and Descemer Bueno reached the coveted figure in 2015.

Then, in 2016, four new videos joined the list: Shakira‘s “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” Romeo Santos with “Propuesta Indecente,” “Ay Vamos” by J Balvin and Jennifer Lopez with “On The Floor” featuring Pitbull.

In 2017, everything changed. After the overwhelming success of Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” clip — currently the most-viewed video  with 5.7 billion views — 17 more videos (including “Despacito”) earned access to the famous list. Among those videos are “El Amante” by Nicky Jam, J Balvin‘s “Mi Gente” with Willy William, Daddy Yankee’s “Shaky, Shaky,” Maluma‘s “Felices Los 4,” and his collaboration with Shakira, “Chantaje,” among others.

And now in 2018, 19 other videos have joined the prestigious club, including “El Farsante” by Ozuna with Romeo Santos; Becky G and Bad Bunny’s “Mayores;” and Manuel Turizo with “Una Lady Como Tu.”

Interestingly, two of the billion-view members are official audio clips: Camilla Cabello’s “Havana” and Danny Ocean’s “Me Rehúso.”

Camila Cabello is Havana moment…

The 21-year-old Cuban and Mexican singer was the night’s big winner at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, taking home the top prizes of the night… Video of the Year and Artist of the Year.

Camila Cabello

Cabello won the Video of the Year award for the official clip to her Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping single, “Havana.” She’s only the second Latin artist to win the coveted Video of the Year prize, behind Christina Aguilera, who won the award in 2001 for her “Lady Marmalade” collaboration with Lil’ Kim, Mýa and P!nk (featuring Missy Elliott).

With the wins, Cabello, who’d previously earned four Moon Men as a member of Fifth Harmony, claimed her first two trophies as a solo artist.

But Cabello wasn’t the only Latin artist to win…

Cardi B, who entered the night with a leading 10 nominations, picked up three Moon Men—the first of her career.

The 25-year Dominican American rap sensation was named Best New Artist. She also picked up the award for Song of the Summer for “I Like It,” her chart-topping collaboration with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, as well as Best Collaboration for her single with Jennifer Lopez, “Dinero.”

J Balvin took home his first Moon Man as well…

In addition to his shared prize with Cardi B for Song of the Summer, the 33-year-old Colombian singer took home the trophy for Best Latin Video for his collaboration with Willy William, “Mi Gente.”

Meanwhile, JLo, already a winner with Cardi B, was honored with the Video Vanguard Award and delivered a high octane performance of her current and past hits to remind us that she’s still Jenny from the Block.

Cardi B’s “I Like It” Reaches No. 1 on the Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs Airplay Chart

Cardi B is replacing herself at the top of the charts…

The 25-year-old half-Dominican American has replaced herself in the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart as “I Like It,” with Bad Bunny and J. Balvin, replaces “Be Careful.”

Cardi B

The new leader rises 3-1 with a 19 percent increase in airplay in the week ending July 8, according to Nielsen Music.

With her achievement, Cardi B is the first act to replace herself at No. 1 since Rihanna, who completed the feat via featured roles on DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts,” (also featuring Bryson Tiller) and Kendrick Lamar’s “Loyalty.”

The former reigned for nine weeks before ceding pole position to the latter on Sept. 30, 2017.

Among artists in lead roles, the last act to pull a double domination was also Rihanna, back on Christmas Day in 2010. On the chart dated December 25, 2010, her “Only Girl (In the World)” surrendered the top rank to “What’s My Name,” featuring Drake, which rang up the first of nine weeks in charge.

As “I Like It” ascends, Cardi B claims her fifth No. 1 on the list, following her “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” (four weeks), a featured turn on G-Eazy’s “No Limit” (two weeks), “Finesse,” a collaboration with Bruno Mars (two weeks), and “Be Careful” (one week).

Bad Bunny, meanwhile, grabs his first No. 1 on Rhythmic Songs, as does J. Balvin, who previously maxed out at No. 2 with “Mi Gente,” alongside Willy William and featuring Beyoncé.

Cardi B Makes History as Her Latest Single “I Like It” Rises to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Cardi B is making history…

The 25-year-old half-Dominican American rapper has become the first female rapper with two No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100, after her hit single “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin rises from No. 2 to No. 1 on chart.

Cardi B

Cardi B first reigned with her debut single, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” for three weeks beginning October 7, 2017.

Meanwhile, Bad Bunny and Balvin earn their first Hot 100 No. 1 each.

Cardi B passes four female rappers who previously topped the tally with one No. 1 apiece: Lauryn Hill, with “Doo Wop (That Thing),” in 1998; Lil’ Kim, with “Lady Marmalade,” with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk (2001); Shawnna, as featured on Ludacris‘ “Stand Up” (2003); and, Iggy Azalea, with “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX (2014).

Cardi B’s bilingual track reworks the venerable “I Like It Like That,” originally performed by Pete Rodriguez in 1967 and taken to No. 25 on the Hot 100 in 1997 (titled “I Like It”) by The Blackout Allstars; the latter act included Tito Nieves, who also recorded a notable solo version. (In between, the composition appeared in the 1994 film I Like It Like That and earned a synch in a 1996 Burger King commercial.)

“I Like It” is from Cardi B’s debut album, Invasion of Privacy, which launched atop the Billboard 200 chart dated on April 4 and includes “Bodak Yellow.”

Cardi B is the first artist to notch a pair of Hot 100 No. 1s from a debut album since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, whose The Heist yielded “Thrift Shop,” featuring Wanz and “Can’t Hold Us,” featuring Ray Dalton in 2013.

Cardi B is the first soloist with a pair Hot 100 leaders from a debut LP since Bruno Mars, whose Doo-Wops & Hooligans produced “Just the Way You Are” (2010) and “Grenade” (2011).

And, Cardi B is the first female soloist with two Hot 100 No. 1s from a debut album this decade, and the first since Lady Gaga, whose The Fame generated “Just Dance,” featuring Colby O’Donis and “Poker Face,” both in 2009.

Prior to “I Like It,” Bad Bunny reached a No. 36 Hot 100 high with “Te Bote,” with Casper Magico, Nio Garcia, Darell, Nicky Jam and Ozuna.

J Balvin notched a prior No. 3 best with “Mi Gente,” with Willy William and featuring Beyoncé, last October.

“I Like It” concurrently takes over atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where Cardi B previously led with “Bodak Yellow,” for six weeks, and “Finesse” (one). It  becomes her second No. 1 on Hot Rap Songs, after “Bodak Yellow” (eight). Bad Bunny and J Balvin lead each list for the first time.

Daddy Yankee’s “Dura” Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

Daddy Yankee has another No. 1 on his resume…

The 41-year-old Puerto Rican rapper-singer has earned his ninth No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, as “Dura” rises 4-1 on the March 17-dated list.

Daddy Yankee

The song collected 16.4 million in audience impressions (up 15 percent) in the week ending March 11, according to Nielsen Music.

“Dura” is the first single from Daddy Yankee’s upcoming studio album El Disco Duro.

“This song belongs to the people, not me,” Daddy Yankee tells Billboard.

Daddy Yankee replaces himself at No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart, as his featured turn on Wisin’s “Todo Comienza En La Disco” (also featuring Yandel) crowned the list a week earlier (March 10). On the new chart, is descends 1-5.

The last time an act replaced itself at No. 1 on Latin Airplay was on November 5, 2016, when J Balvin replaced himself atop the list. That week, Balvin’s “Safari,” featuring Pharrell Williams and Bia & Sky ceded the summit to Zion & Lennox’s “Otra Vez,” featuring Balvin. The latter jumped 4-1, earning Balvin his sixth leader. He’s since added a seventh No. 1 with “Mi Gente,” alongside Willy William, featuring Beyoncé.

On Hot Latin Songs — which blends airplay, sales and streams — “Dura” holds at No. 2 for a second week, and takes Greatest Gainer/Airplay honors. It also hits No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay, ascending 3-1. It’s his 17th leader on the list, extending his record for the most No. 1s in the 17-year history of the tally. In second place: Wisin & Yandel, with 14.

J Balvin & Willy William’s “Mi Gente” Gets a Major Assist from Beyonce

J Balvin’s hit single just got BEY-gger

The 32-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer’s single with Willy William, “Mi Gente,” has been remixed with none other than Beyoncé.

J Balvin

“I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands,” she announced on Instagram Thursday night (September 28).

Beyoncé revealed her feature on “Mi Gente” with one of her funky instavids, this time with photos of the singer wearing a colorful striped dress with a bright yellow Off White belt, moving to the beat of the track.

J Balvin shared her post on his own Instagram page and dropped a dance-heavy lyric video for the new release on YouTube.

Get more information on how you can help with hurricane relief efforts here.

I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands. To help go to Beyonce.com/reliefefforts.

“Mi Gente” is a remix of William’s “Voodoo Song,” which came out two months prior to “Mi Gente”’s release in June.

J Balvin & Willy William’s Hit Single “Mi Gente” Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

It’s a perfect 10 for J Balvin

The 32-year-old Colombian singer’s collaboration with Willy William’s hit single “Mi Gente” climbs 2-1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (dated September16) in its 10th week on the list, jumping 14 percent to 16.38 million audience impressions in the week ending September 3, according to Nielsen Music.

The song earns Balvin his seventh No. 1 on the ranking and William his first.

“Mi Gente” bumps Wisin’s “Escapate Conmigo,” featuring Ozuna, from No. 1 to No. 2 in its 22nd week on the chart. It falls with a six percent decrease in audience for the week (to a total of 15.41 million impressions). The song spent one week atop the list.

“Mi Gente” also holds at its No. 2 peak on both the Hot Latin Songs and Latin Digital Song Sales charts for a seventh straight week each (trailing Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, on both charts).
