It’s a perfect 10(th week) for Prince Royce.
The 34-year-old Dominican American bachata star has notched his 23rd No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart as “Me EnRD” lifts 2-1 to crown the July 8-dated ranking.
The song unseats Marshmello and Manuel Turizo’s “El Merengue” from the lead, after its 13-week domination (it falls to No. 2).
“Me EnRD” lands at No. 1 in its 10th week after a steady climb, including five weeks at No. 2. It crowns the survey with a 4% increase in audience impressions, to 8 million, earned in the U.S. during the June 23-29 tracking week, according to Luminate.
“Me EnRD” is just the second Tropical Airplay-ruling song by an artist unaccompanied by any other act in 2023, after Manuel Turizo’s “La Bachata,” which led for five weeks (a total of 14 weeks in charge).
With the 2-1 move, “EnRD” gifts Royce his 23rd champ, after Marc Anthony, who continues at the helm with 35 total No. 1s, and Victor Manuelle with 29.
Here’s the scoreboard with artists with the most No. 1s on Tropical Airplay since the chart begun in 1994:
35, Marc Anthony
29, Victor Manuelle
23, Prince Royce
18, Romeo Santos
14, Elvis Crespo
14, Gilberto Santa Rosa
13, Jerry Rivera
Beyond its Tropical Airplay coronation, “EnRD” makes progress on the overall Latin Airplay chart, with an 8-6 jump.
