Bad Bunny has racked up another chart-topper…
The 28-year-old Puerto Rican rapper and singer returns to the summit on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart as “Moscow Mule” soars 11-1 on the July 30-dated chart.
It’s the 17th champ for Bad Bunny, who first secured a No. 1 in February 2018.
“Moscow Mule” rallies to the top of the all-genre Latin chart in its 11th week with a 49% gain in audience impressions, to 9.9 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending July 24, according to Luminate.
The song’s growth makes it the chart’s Greatest Gainer.
Some of the greatest radio supporters of “Moscow Mule” during the July 18-24 tracking week were in New York and Philadelphia, leading with New York’s WSKQ (2 million impressions, up 50%) and WXNY (1.3 million, up 49%) and Philadelphia’s WHAT (749,000, a 43% gain).
As “Moscow Mule” takes over Latin Airplay, the previous champ, Wisin and Camilo’s “Buenos Días,” vacates the top spot after a one-week reign, with a 34% decline in audience impressions, falling 1-13. It’s the second-largest positional fall from No. 1 in 2022 after “SG,” by the all-star team of DJ Snake, Ozuna, Lisa and Megan Thee Stallion, which dipped 1-16 on the April 19-dated ranking.
With his 17th No. 1 on Latin Airplay, Bad Bunny ties Ricky Martin for the eighth-most No. 1s since the chart’s launch in 1994.
Here’s a look at the scoreboard:

“Moscow” cracks the Latin Airplay No. 1 spot eight months after Bad Bunny captured his last champ, “Volví,” with Aventura, a one-week ruler in October 2021. The song also topped Tropical Airplay for 13 weeks and has ranked in the top 10 within its 51-week run (and counting).
In line with its Latin Airplay coronation, “Moscow Mule” powers to No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay, also Bad Bunny’s 17th win there.
The song previously ruled Hot Latin Songs and Latin Streaming Songs for one week on the May 21-dated survey.
Elsewhere, “Moscow Muke” is back in the top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 with a 27-25 lift, after its No. 4 debut and peak, also on May 21.
