J Balvin has tied a Latin music icon…

The 36-year-old Colombian singer and Skrillex rise to No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart as “In Da Getto” rises 3-1 on the September 11-dated survey.

With the new chart-topper, J Balvin earns his 31st No.1 on the chart, tying him with Enrique Iglesias for the most leaders in the chart’s history.

Meanwhile, Skrillex secures his first No. 1 on any Latin airplay chart.

“In Da Getto” takes over the 26-year-old tally with a 15% gain in audience impressions, to 12.4 million, earned in the week ending September 5, according to MRC Data.

J Balvin’s collection of Latin Airplay No. 1s dates back to 2014, when he sent “6 AM,” the fourth single from his La Familia album to the summit –his breakthrough set which earned him a first top 10 on the overall Top Latin Albums chart (October 2014).

With the ‘90s dance interpolated “In Da Getto” taking over atop Latin Airplay, J Balvin ties Enrique Iglesias’ all-time No. 1 record, a mark Iglesias has held since 1996 as he placed five simultaneous tracks from his self-titled debut effort atop the all-genre Latin tally (“Si Tú Te Vas,” ‘Experiencia Religiosa,” “Por Amarte,” “No Llores Por Mi,” and “Trapecista”).

“In Da Getto” turns out to be profitable for the EDM DJ/ producer Skrillex having previously scored his first top 10 on the airplay-, digital sales, and streaming-blended Hot Latin Songs chart when the club banger debuted at No. 7 (dated July 17). It concurrently earned him a first No. 1 on any Latin chart with the track dominating the Latin Digital Song Sales on the same chart week.

The Skrillex and Tainy-produced tune also takes home the Greatest Gainer/Digital honors on Hot Latin Songs jumping three rankings (10-7) with close to 1,500 downloads sold, up 59%, logged in the week ending September 2.


On the streaming front, the track posts a 28% gain to 3.42 million U.S. streams, and re-enters Latin Streaming Songs at No. 12.

“In Da Getto” follows J Balvin’s one-week Latin Airplay reign of “AM,” with Nio García and Bad Bunny (July 10). In total, he’s placed four No. 1s in 2021, all through collaborations except for “Tu Veneno” (April 3-dated list), his ninth ruler as a solo act among his 31 chart toppers.

For Khalid, it’s his first chart appearance since 2018 when Marshmello’s “Silence,” on which he is featured, debuted and peaked at No. 50. J Balvin, meanwhile, picks up his 30th No. 1 dating back to his first, “6 AM,” featuring Farruko in 2014.

Khalid, meanwhile, earns his first No. 1 on any Latin chart.

With the song’s ascent, Balvin gets closer to beating Enrique Iglesias’ all-time record of 31 leaders since the chart’s inception in 1994.

31, Enrique Iglesias
30, J Balvin
24, Daddy Yankee

Beyond its Latin Airplay coronation, “Otra Noche Sin Ti” pushes up Hot Latin Songs with a 20-17 jump and takes the Greatest Gainer/ Airplay honors. It concurrently grants Khalid his first Latin Rhythm Airplay No. 1 as the song lifts 4-1.

J Balvin Scores First No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart with “Ay Vamos”

It’s a big first for J Balvin

The 29-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer, considered the breakout Latino artist of 2014, has scored his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as “Ay Vamos” hops 4-1 in its 25th week on the chart.

J Balvin

The track takes Digital Gainer honors on the chart, climbing 78 percent (to 5,000 downloads sold in the week ending Feb. 22, according to Nielsen Music), fueled in part by a performance of the song on Univision‘s Premio Lo Nuestro awards show on February 19, where he took home four awards, including urban artist of the year.

A recently released remix featuring Nicky Jam and French Montana, along with a price reduction (to 69 cents) as part of a digital promotion, also helps the track leap 11-4 on the Latin Digital Songs chart.

On Hot Latin Songs, “Ay Vamos” had spent 10 nonconsecutive weeks stuck at No. 2 on the list, unable to break his tourmate Enrique Iglesias‘ impenetrable 41-week record No. 1 run with “Bailando” featuring Descemer Bueno & Gente de Zona. A week ago, “Bailando” finally fell (1-2), as Mana‘s “Mi Verdad” bowed atop the list. At the same time, “Ay Vamos” slipped 2-4 — to its lowest rank since the Nov. 29-dated chart. But thanks to its surge in sales, the song finally crowns the list with its three-spot leap.

“Ay Vamos,” from Balvin’s La Familia B Sides (released Sept. 16), also earlier spent 16 weeks at No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay (first peaking on Oct. 25), tying with Don Omar‘s “Zumba” for fourth-longest No. 1 run on the chart. It currently continues at No. 2 (with a 10 percent jump in airplay — to 7.7 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen).

Balvin is a 12-time finalist at the upcoming 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards, airing live on Telemundo from Miami on April 30. He’s a finalist in such categories as artist of the year, new; and hot Latin song of the year for “6 AM” (featuring Farruko). He’ll be speaking at the 2015 Billboard Latin Music Conference.
