Blessd Earns First No. 1 on Any Billboard Chart with “Medallo,” Featuring Justin Quiles & Lenny Tavarez

It’s a big first for Blessd.

The 22-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter and rapper has secured his first No. 1 on a Billboard chart as “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Lenny Tavarez, rises 4-1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay ranking-dated May 21.

It’s also Tavarez’s first leader on the all-Latin genre tally, Quiles captures his third among a collection of 14 entries.

“I’m really excited!” says Stiven Mesa Londoño, better known as Blessd. “When I received the news that we were No. 1 on Billboard, I was very emotional. This only makes me work harder for many more wins.”

“Medallo” hits No. 1 in its 16th week with 11 million audience impressions (up 49%) earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 12, according to Luminate.

It evicts Rosalía’s “La Fama,” with The Weeknd, down to No. 5 after its one-week on top (7.6 million, down 29%).

“Medallo” is the fifth title of 2022, which has landed at the summit in at least 16 weeks or more. The other four comprise Karol G’s “Sejodioto,” Rauw Alejandro’s “Cúrame,” and Marc Anthony’s “Mala,” all with 17 weeks to the top, and Jhay Cortez and Sech’s “Ley Seca” (19 weeks).

Further, Blessd and Tavarez join a crew of five other acts who have secured their first champ on the all-Latin genre Latin Airplay chart in 2022. Here’s a recap of the leaderboard:

Artist, Title, Artists, Peak Date
Victor Cárdenas, “El Incomprendido,” with Farruko & DJ Adoni, Jan. 29
DJ Adoni, “El Incomprendido,” with Farruko & Victor Cárdenas, Jan. 29
Lis, “SG,” with Ozuna & Megan Thee Stallion, April 2
Megan Thee Stallion, “SG,” with Ozuna and Lisa, April 2
Ed Sheeran, “Forever My Love” and “Sigue,” both with J Balvin, April 9 and April 16, respectively
Blessd, “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Lenny Tavarez, May 21
Lenny Tavarez, “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Blessd, May 21

The Ovy on the Drums-produced track, concurrently lands atop Latin Rhythm Airplay after its third week at No. 3.

“At first, the idea of ‘Medallo’ was intended to be produced together with another artist who is also well positioned in Colombia,” the 22-year-old Blessd adds. “But in the end, it did not happen. In our counter plan, Lenny and Justin joined in and the song became a global hit.”

Among the trio, “Medallo” finds its home in Blessd’s roster. The tune is one of 10 tracks on the rapper’s Hecho en Medellín album, which has not entered the charts.

“The collaboration with Lenny and Justin was incredible,” Blessd concludes. “We went from making a song to becoming very good friends, the song transcended into my personal life.”

Rauw Alejandro Earns 7th No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart with “Cúrame”

Rauw Alejandro has found a chart-topping cure

The 29-year-old Puerto Rican singer and rapper has reached the top of BillboardLatin Airplay chart as “Cúrame” lifts 7-1 in its 17th week to lead the March 5-dated ranking.

Rauw AlejandroWith the chart-topping move, the Greatest Gainer song of the week gifts Rauw Alejandro his seventh No. 1 among a collection of 17 entries.

He previously took over atop the chart with the Latin pop hit and three-week ruler “Todo de Ti” (between July, August and December 2021), the longest the Puerto Rican reigned on the charts with a song. The latter has held steady in the list’s top 10 for 38 weeks during its 40-week term and counting (currently at No. 5).

With a 17-week trek to the top, “Cúrame” joins a group of two other songs that have completed the slow-but-steady journey to the top in 2022 so far.

Jhay Cortez and Anuel AA’s “Ley Seca” took 19 weeks to arrive at No. 1 on the February 5-dated survey. Karol G’s “Sejodioto” also crossed the barrier in its 17th week.

“Cúrame” knocks Romeo Santos’ “Huellas” from its one-week reign (dips to No. 2) with 9.19 million in audience impressions, up 58%, earned in the week ending February 27, according to MRC Data. It’s the biggest percentage gain of the week, ahead of Raymix’s latest single “Te Voy a Conquistar,” with NZO, which debuts at No. 42 with a 43% gain.

“Cúrame” is the sixth single from Rauw’s two-week champ Vice Versa, his second studio album and first No. 1 on Top Latin Albums (July 10, 2021-dated chart). The new No. 1 arrives after the Puerto Rican released the EP Trap Cake Vol. 2 on February 25, the follow-up to the EP’s first volume in 2019 (the latter set has not entered the charts).

Beyond its Latin Airplay coronation, “Cúrame” rises 4-1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay, where it also follows “Todo de Ti” as his seventh chart-topper.
