Nicky Jam Teams Up with Romeo Santos for Hypnotic Reggaeton Track “Fan de Tus Fotos

It’s a special Aventura for Nicky Jam

The 39-year-old Puerto Rican & Dominican American Latin trap and reggaeton singer/songwriter has joined voices with former-Aventura-member-turned-bachata-superstar Romeo Santos for “Fan de Tus Fotos,” a hypnotic reggaeton track that finds both men daydreaming over their boss, who they think has been sending them mixed messages.

But as it turns out, they’ve been imagining things, and their distractedness gets them in some serious trouble at the office. “I’m like a fan just looking at your photos. I’m going crazy thinking I can touch you,” the pair sing.

It’s not the first time Nicky Jam and Santos have teamed up.

Back in 2017, they released the Daddy Yankee-assisted “Bella Y Sensual,” which peaked at No. 6 on Billboard‘s Hot Latin Songs chart (dated January 2, 2018).

Earlier this year, Nicky Jam made his debut as talk show host in his new interview-style project titled The Rockstar Show, streamed on YouTube. His first episode featured Colombian superstar Maluma and other guests have included El Alfa and Karol G.

During his interview with Karol G, he announced a new album dropping this year. “I’m really happy, I think this will be my best album,” he shared.

Romeo Santos is celebrating his ten-ure on the Latin charts…

Billboard is revealing the top acts of the 2010s by genre, with the 39-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American bachata singer-songwriter topping the list of artists in the Latin category.

Romeo Santos

Since first hitting Billboard‘s surveys as a soloist in 2011, after breaking though in hit bachata quartet Aventura, Santos has collected seven solo No. 1s on the weekly Hot Latin Songs chart and five No. 1s on Top Latin Albums.

“If you put out quality music,” he told Billboard in 2017, “you’re always going to be in a good place.”

Santos beat out Prince Royce for the top spot.

The 31-year-old Dominican American singer-songwriter has not stopped making his mark in the Latin music industry since he released his eponymous debut studio album, which generated two commercially successful singles, “Stand by Me” and “Corazón Sin Cara,” in March 2010.

Most recently, Prince Royce  “Carita de Inocente“, spent a record-breaking 29 weeks at number-one on the Billboard Latin Tropical Airplay chart.

J Balvin comes in at No. 3 on the chart…

The 35-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer, known as the “Príncipe del Reggaetón,”

was included in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020 and one of the greatest Latin artists of all time by Billboard.

Daddy Yankee is the No. 5 top Latin act of the 2010s, due in part to his landmark hit “Despacito,” with Luis Fonsi and featuring Justin Bieber. The English/Spanish-language collaboration spent a record 56 weeks atop Hot Latin Songs beginning in February 2017, passing the 41-week reign of “Bailando” by Enrique Iglesias (the decade’s No. 4 artist), featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona, beginning in May 2014.

Santos’ “Propuesta Indecente” Makes Billboard Chart History

Romeo Santos has an indecent claim to fame…

The 33-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American Bachata singer has made history, yet again, as his single “Propuesta Indecente” spends a 100th consecutive week on Billboard‘s Hot Latin Songs chart (dated July 4).

Romeo Santos

It’s the first track to ever reach the triple-digit milestone on the chart and extends its lead for the most charted weeks by 38 weeks.

The second-longest-running song on the survey is Prince Royce‘s “Incondicional” at 62 weeks in 2012-13.

“Propuesta Indecente” holds at No. 2 on Hot Latin Songs chart. Since debuting at No. 44 on Aug. 10, 2013, it’s spent 99 of its 100 weeks in the top 10 (having bounded to No. 3 in its second frame) and, even more impressively, 98 weeks in the top five.

The song has been a top five mainstay, in fact, dating back to the May 17, 2014 chart. It spent a total of four weeks at No. 1 beginning Sept. 28, 2013.

Santos, meanwhile, has been a chart force since his solo arrival in 2011 after he became dubbed the “King of Bachata” fronting Aventura. He’s scored seven Hot Latin Songs No. 1s on his own after tallying two with Aventura.

Streaming is the main driver for the song’s extended chart life: of points contributing to its current rank, 89 percent are from streaming outlets.

During the latest tracking week (ending June 21), the song logged 1.7 million clicks across platforms, according to Nielsen Music, with YouTube and Vevo on YouTube accounting for 81 percent of domestic plays.

Online, “Propuesta Indecente” is Santos’ biggest hit, with its official video having amassed more than 715 million global views on Vevo on YouTube (since being released in September 2013), making it the most popular clip on his account by nearly 500 million plays.
