“Relación” advances with 11 million in audience impressions, up 7 percent, earned in the week ending September 20, and ends the three-nonconsecutive week reign of Ozuna’s “Caramelo.”

It’s the fifth leader for Sech, who secured his first No. 1 with the all-star hit “Otro Trago” in August 2019. Meanwhile Daddy Yankee nabs his 21st, J Balvin extends his second-most No. 1s with 26, while Rosalía and Farruko, score their second and eighth, respectively.

Ozuna Releases “Caramelo” Remix, Featuring Karol G & Myke Towers

Ozuna is sweetening things up…

Two months after releasing “Caramelo,” the 28-year-old Puerto Rican reggaeton and Latin trap singer has released a remix of the track featuring Karol G and Myke Towers.

“Caramelo,” one of this year’s Billboard Latin summer songs, is a hip-shaking and head-bobbing reggaeton single that tells the story of two people who have undeniable chemistry.

“I tried you again, your mouth does not lose its candy flavor / we let ourselves go, you are my bandit and I am your bandit,” the catchy chorus says.

Karol G kicks off the remix flaunting her sugary high vocals. In her verse, the “Tusa” singer croons about being a girl who’s like no other and can do all the things her man likes to do. Towers adds his distinct flow to the track, singing about a ride-or-die girl who he’s crazy about.

Similar to the original music video, the remix features all three artists in different Candyland-inspired settings as models enjoy sweet treats such as ice cream, bubble gum, lollipops, chocolate and more.

On the Billboard charts, “Caramelo” captured his first top 10 debut of 2020, and his second new top 10 of the year overall, arriving at No. 7 on the Hot Latin Songs chart dated June 27. The song hit No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart dated August 15, nabbing his 20th leader on the list, which launched in 1994.
