He’s been around for 15 years, but Residentehas earned a new first…
The 41-year-old Puerto Rican rapper has made his first appearance on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as his collaboration with Bad Bunnyon “Bellacoso” bows at No. 24.
Their first collaboration, which also includes background vocals by iLe, was released on July 26 as part of Residente’s celebrations after Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rosselló announced his resignation on July 24 following days of protests (in which Residente and Bad Bunny took part).
Though this is Residente’s first solo hit on the Hot Latin Songs chart, he is also one-half of Calle 13, which placed six entries on the list.
In the week ending Aug. 1, “Bellacoso” sold 1,000 downloads (enabling the song’s debut at No. 7 on Latin Digital Song Sales — Residente’s first chart appearance in over a year) and registered 3.4 million streams.
