Camilo has another chart-topper on his hands…
The 28-year-old Colombian singer, musician and songwriter has notched his third No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart dated Aug. 13 as “Pegao” rises to the top spot in its 11th week.
“Pegao” climbs from the runner-up rank through a 7% gain in audience impressions, to 5.6 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending August 7, according to Luminate.
The single ends Manuel Turizo’s one-week command with “La Bachata” (Aug. 6-dated survey), as it drops to No. 2 on the latest chart.
The cumbia villera “Pegao” marks a new career achievement for Camilo’s Tropical Airplay career history, becoming his first champ on a lead role, unaccompanied by any other act. The track was co-written alongside Edgar Barrera with the collaboration of Andres Castro.
“Pegao” follows Camilo’s two-week champ “Baloncito Viejo,” with Carlos Vives (June 11-18-dated lists). Previously, he logged his first champ also through a co-lead collab, “Kesi,” with Shawn Mendes (Aug. 21, 2021).
“Pegao” is the third single from Camilo’s forthcoming third studio album, De Adentro Pa Fuera, set to be released in September. His eponymous worldwide tour, which kicked off on May 26 in Mexico, features some of the set’s already released singles: “Indigo” with Evaluna and “Pesadilla,” both which scored an entry on Latin Pop Airplay (No. 3 and No. 16 high, respectively), and the newly released singles “Nasa” with Alejandro Sanz and “Naturaleza” with Nicki Nicole, which have not yet entered a Billboard chart.
Further, ‘Pegao” moves closer to the top 10 on Latin Airplay, climbing 16-12 in its 10th week.
