Bizarrap has earned his first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart…
The 24-year-old Argentine DJ and record producer captures his first chart-topper for “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53,” his smash collaboration with Shakira.
The new track rallies up the January 28-dated chart with a 16-1 jump following its first full-week of tracking.
With the No. 1 song, Shakira ties with Bad Bunny for the fourth-most No. 1s overall, both with 12.
The song was released on January 11 at 7 p.m. ET through Dale Play/Sony Music Latin and debuted at No. 16 (chart dated January 21) with less than two days of activity.
Hot Latin Songs ranks the most popular Latin songs in the U.S. based on a blend of airplay, digital sales, and streaming data.
Starting with radio airplay, “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53” generated 7.42 million audience impressions in the tracking week ending in January 19, according to Luminate. The sum allows for a No. 5 debut on the all-genre Latin Airplay chart.
It’s the second top 10 for Bizarrap after his four-week command with “Music Sessions, Vol. 52,” with Quevedo (November 2022). Shakira, meanwhile, collects her 36th top 10.
On the streaming front, “Music Sessions, Vol. 53” logged 20.2 million official U.S. streams, up 315%, in the same tracking period. The count yields a No. 3 start on the overall Streaming Song ranking and a 17-1 jump on Latin Streaming Songs.
Sales also assist the collaboration’s No. 1 ascent on Hot Latin Songs. With 9,000 downloads sold, “Vol. 53” surges 23-3 on the Digital Songs Sales ranking and holds at No. 1 for a second week on Latin Digital Song Sales.
It’s the largest sales week among Hot Latin Songs hits since Shakira’s own “Suerte (Whenever, Wherever)” sold 15,000 on the Feb. 15, 2020-dated chart, following her performance of the track during the halftime show that year (Feb. 2).
Back on the multimetric tally, “Vol. 53” easily sends Fuerza Regida and Grupo Frontera’s “Bebe Dame” to No. 2 after its one week in charge.
Here’s the scoreboard since the chart’s inception in 1986:
27, Enrique Iglesias
16, Luis Miguel
15, Gloria Estefan
12, Bad Bunny
11, Marco Antonio Solis
11, Ricky Martin
Notably, “Vol. 53” allows for another woman in a lead or co-lead role to rule Hot Latin Songs for the first time since Karol G’s “Provenza” in May 2022. Further, the tally’s No. 1 slot was monopolized by three Bad Bunny’s songs for 35 weeks, as “Moscow Mule,” “Me Porto Bonito,” with Chencho Corleone, and “Titi Me Preguntó” dominated the May 21, 2022 – January 14, 2023-dated rankings, until Fuerza Regida and Grupo Frontera’s “Bebe Dame” landed at the summit the week prior.
Elsewhere on the charts, “Vol. 53” makes a No. 9 debut on the overall Billboard Hot 100 chart. It’s the highest start for both acts, and Shakira’s highest ranking since “Beautiful Liar,” with Beyoncé, peaked at No. 3 in 2007. “Vol. 53” also bows at No. 2 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts.
