Camilo Earns First No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay Chart with Grupo Firme Collab “Alaska”

It’s another first for Camilo

The 28-year-old Colombian Latin Grammy-winning singer has landed his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart as “Alaska,” his single with Grupo Firme, rises from the No. 4 slot to rule the November 12-dated list.

Camilo“Alaska” received its official release through Hecho A Mano/Sony Music Latin on August 18. It’s the sixth single from Camilo’s third studio album, De Adentro Pa’ Fuera, which reached a No. 6 high on Latin Pop Albums (September 24).

“Alaska” reaches the No. 1 slot, after a second week in the top 10 (No. 4 high, November 5-dated ranking) and in its eighth week on the chart boosted by a 25% increase in audience impressions, to 7.1 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 6, according to Luminate.

The regional Mexican tune, which was co-written and co-produced by Camilo alongside Edgar Barrera, dispatches Duelo’s “24 Siete” after it’s one-week command.

With seven No. 1s on its career history, Grupo Firme ties with Christian Nodal and Banda MS for the third-most champs this decade, trailing Calibre 50’s eight leaders. Since the chart launched in 1994, Calibre 50 continues at the helm with 22 No. 1’s.

“Alaska” becomes the first team-up by a regional Mexican group with a core Latin pop act to lead Regional Mexican Airplay since Natalia Lafourcade ruled for three weeks through her featured role in Los Angeles Azules’ “Nunca Es Suficiente” in 2019.

Meanwhile, “Alaska” earns Grupo Firme its fourth No. 1 in 2022, including “Cada Quien,” with Maluma, which topped the chart for two weeks in February

“Alaska” advances 11-7 on the overall Latin Airplay ranking, earning Camilo his 11th top 10 while Grupo Firme adds a sixth top 10 to its scoreboard.

Duelo’s “24 Siete” Rises to No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay Chart

Duelo has triumphantly returning to the top of the charts…

The Mexican norteño band has returned to the No. 1 spot for the first time in a decade and a half on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart dated October 29 with its latest single “24 Siete.”

DueloThe song marks Duelo’s first visit to the summit since 2007. It also represents a new achievement for the group’s label La Bonita Music, winning its first leader among a collection of 16 entries.

“Everything we have been reaping, working hard these years, tours in Mexico and the United States and the truth, this new No. 1 caught us by surprise,” Oscar Iván Treviño, one of founding members of the group, told Billboard.

“24 Siete” was released on August 11 via La Bonita Music. It ascends to the top in its ninth week following a 19% gain in audience impressions, to 5.8 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 23, according to Luminate.

With its ascent, “24 Siete” becomes Duelo’s fourth champ dating back to the one-week ruler “Te Compro” in 2006. In between, the Monterrey-bred group nabbed two other one-week champs in 2007: “Un Idiota Como Yo” and “Olvidame Tú.”

As for “24 Siete,” Treviño adds, “We composed the song with the best intentions in the world. Doing the song and recording our new album No Digas No, well, it’s been exciting. It is important to always maintain that curiosity and that passion for music, doing what you love.” “24 Siete” is the second single from No Digas No, which hasn’t entered the charts yet.

Further, with the new champ, La Bonita Music claims its first No. 1 in the 28-year-old history of the Regional Mexican Airplay chart. It previously reached a No. 3 high also through a Duelo song, “Puño de Diamantes,” in July 2013.

Elsewhere, “24” steps into the upper region on the all-genre Latin Airplay chart with a 15-9 jump. The lift gifts the group its first top 10 in almost a decade, since “Puño de Diamantes” peaked at No. 8 in its 13th week in 2013.
