There’s no doubt Alejandro Fernández knows how to create hit music…
The 51-year-old Mexican singer, nicknamed El Potrillo, has reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart with “Nunca Dudes En Llamarme,” his collaboration with La Arrolladora Banda El Limón de Rene Camacho.
“Nunca Dudes En Llamarme” takes the Greatest Gainer honors of the week boosted by a 35% gain in audience impressions, to 6.54 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 11, according to Luminate.
The new champ, released July 15 via UMLE, reaches the penthouse in its eighth week on the chart, after its top 20 debut (at No. 16 on the July 30-dated ranking).
“Nunca Dudes En Llamarme” gives La Arrolladora its 17th No. 1 among 45 chart appearances. The band concurrently enters a tie with Intocable for the fourth-most.
Let’s take a look at the leaderboard:
22, Calibre 50
18, Banda El Recodo de Cruz Lizarraga
18, Banda MS de Sergio Lizarraga
17, La Arrolladora Banda el Limon de Rene Camacho
16, Conjunto Primavera
16, Los Tigres del Norte
Meanwhile, Fernández scores his first champ in over a year – his fifth in total. He clocked his last No. 1 through another team-up: “Duele,” with Christian Nodal, in April 2021.
Elsewhere, “Nunca Dudes En Llamarme” takes La Arrolladora to the upper region on the all-genre Latin Airplay ranking with a 13-8 lift.
With the move, the Sinaloans claim their 22nd top 10, the fifth-most among regional Mexican acts. Plus, Fernández captures his 21st, also the fifth-most among Latin pop acts.
