Three’s great company for Ozuna

As “Despeinada” is back at No. 1 on Latin Pop Airplay (2-1), where it previously reigned for two weeks (starting on the January 9-dated survey), and concurrently arrives at the penthouse on Latin Rhythm Airplay, it becomes the first song to top all three charts in 2021.
