With the song’s coronation, Karol G becomes the first female artist to lead the chart in 2020 without a collaborative act. The last woman to achieve the feat was Natti Natasha with “Me Gusta” (May 18, 2019-dated list).
Earlier in 2020, before “Ay, Dios Mio!,” there were four No. 1s with either co-billed or featured female acts:

“Ay, Dios Mío!” hits No. 1 assisted by a 30 percent increase in audience impressions, to 11 million, earned in the week ending Oct. 4, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Notably, out of the 32 No. 1 titles on Latin Airplay in 2020, 15 were credited to just one act, while the other 17 were billed to multiple artists, and, of the 15 No. 1s by just one act, 14 were by men or all-male groups.
Elsewhere on the charts, “Ay, Dios Mío!” also arrives at the summit on both Latin Rhythm Airplay and Latin Pop Airplay, Karol G’s eighth and fourth leader, respectively.
Gains at the Latin Airplay sector help push “Ay, Dios Mío!” upward on Hot Latin Songs, which combines airplay, streaming data and digital sales. The track lifts 7-5 and takes the Greatest Gainer/ Airplay honor.
“Ay, Dios Mío!,” meanwhile makes its first appearance on the all-genre BillboardHot 100chart, arriving at No, 94.
The 27-year-old Puerto Rican singer, rapper and songwriter and Camilo have earned their second No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart as “Tattoo” rises 4-1 on the September 12 survey.
“Tattoo” sits at the summit with 13 million in audience impressions, up 23%, earned in the week ending September 6, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The original version of “Tattoo,” released February 13 via Sony Music Latin, was produced by Los Honeyboos (Rafa Rodríguez, Daniel Rondon) and Mr. Nais Gai. It’s one of 17 tracks of Rauw Alejandro’s live album Concierto Virtual en Tiempos de COVID-19 Desde el Coliseo de Puerto Rico which peaks at No. 8 on the current Latin Rhythm Albums chart and at No. 10 on the overall Top Latin Albums chart.
“Tattoo” was assisted by its pop-tinged remix with Colombian Camilo, released July 11. It was also produced and composed by Los Honeyboos and Mr. Nais Gai and composed by Alejandro, Camilo, Elena Rose, José M. Collazo, Eric Pérez Rovira, Eliel Lind Osorio, Aneudy Maysonet and Evaluna Montaner.
“Tattoo” concurrently peaks at No. 7 on the current Hot Latin Songs chart, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data, a career high for the Puerto Rican.
“Tattoo” also sees improvement elsewhere on the Latin charts: It equally climbs 4-1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay and moves 13-12 on Latin Streaming Songs despite a 2% decline in streams.
The song is part of a TikTok challenge with over 2.6 million videos posted by users. Its hashtag #TattooChallenge has garnered more than 633 million views.
The 35-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer’s bilingual collaboration with Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy, “Un Día (One Day),” surges to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs survey dated August 8.
The track, released July 24, dethrones another bilingual collaboration, ending the Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna and J.Rey Soul’s three-week reign with “Mamacita.”
“I’m so thankful and blessed for the early reaction to ‘Un Día’ and its arrival on the charts,” said J Balvin. “It’s one we’ve been talking about for a while now, so I’m happy it’s out in the world for everyone to enjoy. Much Love to Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny, and Tainy for being a part of this special moment with me. Stay tuned for more fire coming soon!”
“Un Día” is Dua Lipa’s first Hot Latin Songs entry and first No. 1 on any Billboard Latin chart. Her foray into the Latin charts began in January 2018 as all-English language track “New Rules” opened at No. 40 on the Latin Pop Airplay list.
The new song isn’t available on her current album Future Nostalgia, which arrived at No. 4 on the overall Billboard 200 chart (April 11-dated tally).
The song’s coronation on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, streams and digital sales, is mainly attributed to streaming activity and airplay. It earned 10 million U.S. clicks in the week ending July 30, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, which yields a No. 1 debut on the Latin Streaming Songs list and a No. 45 arrival on the overall Streaming Songs chart.
“Un Día” concurrently opens at No. 1 on the Latin Digital Song Sales chart and at No. 49 on the overall Digital Song Sales chart supported by its 4,000 downloads logged in its first tracking week.
J Balvin, meanwhile, posts an eighth No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs. “Un Día,” however, earns him his first No. 1 debut.
With the song’s arrival atop the list, J Balvin places three songs in the top 10: “Ritmo (Bad Boys For Life),” with Black Eyed Peas at No. 3 and “Agua,” with Tainy which rises 11-7. The latter is featured on The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run soundtrack.
“Un Día” is just the second song to arrive at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs in 2020. It follows Bad Bunny’s “Si Veo a Tu Mamá” (March 14-dated survey). While he secures his sixth No. 1, producer and songwriter Tainy claims his first.
Beyond its Hot Latin Songs chart-topping arrival, “Un Día” bows at No. 24 on Latin Airplay, No. 13 on Latin Rhythm Airplay and No. 17 on Latin Pop Airplay.
The 25-year-old Colombian singer/songwriter’s “TBT” single with Rauw Alejandro and Manuel Turizo has risen to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart dated July 4, dethroning the Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna and J. Rey Soul’s from their one-week reign with “Mamacita.”
“I wrote this song over a year ago with Sech in Miami,” says Yatra. “We started writing a story based on personal situations we were both going through over a guitar riff. It’s a reggaetóntune with strong pop elements co-produced by the XAXO brothers with Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo. It also has its romantic touch, which is something I vibrate with strongly.”
Yatra, Alejandro and Turizo reach the summit in the song’s 14th week thanks to its 12.42 million in audience impressions (up 7 percent) earned in the week ending June 28, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
“Its journey to the top is a reflection of how the song has been getting into people little by little,” Yatra continues. “It’s also a reflection of the perseverance of my team at Universal. Nowadays it is very easy to release a song and get lost in so many things — the news, our daily routines. We’ve done a nice job with ‘TBT.’”
It’s the first No. 1 for Alejandro, who began his Latin Airplaycareer a little over a year ago when he secured his first chart entry with “Luz Apaga,” with Ozuna and Lyanno (No. 48 peak, Feb. 16, 2019-dated survey).
“I was super happy to work with Manuel Turizo and Rauw Alejandro, who are both on fire these days,” Yatra adds. “They are not only extremely talented, but both have big hearts. So happy to be next to Rauw as he gets his first No. 1 on Latin Airplay. Without a doubt he’s one of the few newcomers who will leave a mark. I’m such a fan of him, his versatility and ability to create.”
As “TBT” hits No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart, Yatra nabs his seventh leader. His first No. 1 dates back to when “Robarte Un Beso,” with Carlos Vives, ruled for one week in January 2018.
Turizo, meanwhile secures his second No. 1.
Elsewhere on the Latin charts, “TBT” remains atop the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart for a second week, and moves into the top 20 on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data.
Alejandro joins a group of other eight acts who have claimed their first No. 1 in 2020:
Artist, Song Title, Date Reached No. 1 Black Eyed Peas, “Ritmo (Bad Boys For Life),” with J Balvin, Feb. 8 Nicki Minaj, “Tusa,” with Karol G, Feb. 15 Static & Ben El, “Súbelo (Further Up),” with Pitbull and Chesca, March 28 Chesca, “Súbelo (Further Up),” with Static & Ben El and Pitbull, March 28 Ne-Yo, “Me Quedaré Contigo,” with Pitbull, featuring Lenier and El Micha, April 18 Lenier, “Me Quedaré Contigo,” with Pitbull, Ne-Yo, also featuring El Micha, April 18 El Micha, “Me Quedaré Contigo,” with Pitbull, Ne-Yo, also featuring Lenier, April 18 J.Rey Soul, “Mamacita,” with Black Eyed Peas, June 20 Camilo, “Si Me Dices Que Si,” with Reik and Farruko, June 27 Rauw Alejandro, “TBT,” with Sebastián Yatra and Manuel Turizo, July 4
