Karol G Claims New Career Milestone on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart with “Provenza” & “MAMIII”

It’s a one-two punch for Karol G.

The 31-year-old Colombian singer/songwriter has claimed a new career milestone on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as her latest single, “Provenza,” debuts at No. 2 on the May 7-dated ranking.

Karol GStill holding the No. 1 spot with “Mamiii,” with Becky G, Karol G becomes only the second woman, after Selena, to hold Nos. 1 and 2 at the same time since 1995.

“Provenza,” Karol G’s 15th Hot Latin Songs top 10, begins with 11 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 28, according to Luminate. It opens as her fifth No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs and her second top 10, at No. 10 (after “Mamiii”), on the overall Streaming Songs chart.

“Provenza” also sold 2,100 downloads and becomes her fifth No. 1 on Latin Digital Song Sales. It additionally jumps onto Latin Airplay at No. 18 with 5.3 million in audience.

Produced by Karol G’s longtime collaborator Ovy on the Drums, “Provenza” is a fusion of sounds with tropical and rhythmic elements peppered with afro-dance beats that pays tribute to a neighborhood in her native Medellín.

With “Provenza” arriving at No. 2 on Hot Latin Songs as “Mamiii” reigns for a 10th week, Karol G achieves a feat that no other woman had in over a quarter-century.

The last solo female with no accompanying artists to claim the top two spots together was the late Selena, when “Tú Sólo Tú” and “I Could Fall in Love” ranked at Nos. 1 and 2 respectively, on the September 9, 1995-dated tally (when Hot Latin Songs, now a blend of airplay, streaming and sales data, was based on monitored audience totals among Latin radio stations). Selena logged a total of six weeks at Nos. 1 and 2 with those titles beginning that July.

Previously this decade, Bad Bunny (two weeks) and The Black Eyed Peas (five) doubled up at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on Hot Latin Songs, both in 2020.

Elsewhere, “Provenza” bows at No. 36 on the all-genre, multi-metric Billboard Hot 100, marking Karol G’s highest start as an unaccompanied act. It’s her fourth top 40 entry; “Mamiii” ranks at No. 20, after launching at a personal-best No. 15 in February.

Eden Muñoz Earns First Top 10 on Any Airplay Ranking as a Solo Act with “Chale!”

Eden Muñoz has logged his first Top 10 as a solo artist…

The 31-year-old Mexican singer and former Calibre 50 frontman has entered the top 10 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart as “Chale!” climbs 14-8 in its sixth week.

Eden MuñozIt’s Muñoz’s his first top 10 as a solo act on any airplay ranking.

Muñoz’s first venture to the ranking’s upper tier, unaccompanied by any other act, arrives following his departure as lead singer for Calibre 50 and under his new label, Lizos Music.

“Chale!” advances with 4.29 million in audience impressions, up 44%, earned in the U.S. in the week ending April 24, and takes home the Greatest Gainer honors.

The track concurrently makes progress on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, advancing 10-9 despite a dip in both digital sales and streams.

It earned 3.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 21, a 3% decline from the 3.27 million streams it generated the prior week, which pushes the track down 18-20 on Latin Streaming Songs.

Back on Regional Mexican Airplay, Muñoz has notched 30 top 10s as part of Calibre 50; 21 out of those have hit No. 1 among a compendium of 43 total entries — the most leaders among all regional Mexican acts.

Becky G & Karol G’s “Mamiii” Track Hits No. 1 on Six Billboard Latin Charts

It’s a hot mami-ment for Becky G and Karol G.

The 25-year-old Mexican American singer/rapper and the 31-year-old Colombian singer’s sew single “Mamiii” has hit No. 1 on two new Billboard Latin charts.

Becky G & Karol G

A week after conquering the Latin Pop Airplay chart (dated March 19), their first collaboration takes over the all-genre Latin Airplay chart as it jumps 3-1 on the March 26-dated ranking. It concurrently ascends 2-1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay.

With the move, “Mamiii” now tops six Latin charts concurrently: Hot Latin SongsLatin AirplayLatin Pop AirplayLatin Rhythm Airplay, Latin Digital Song Sales, and Latin Streaming Songs.

The previous instance of that six-chart simultaneous domination occurred almost three years ago when Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma,” featuring Snow, topped all six of the May 25, 2019-dated tallies and the surveys dated June 15-29, 2019.

“Mamiii” ascends to lead Latin Airplay with an 11% increase in audience impressions, to 8.97 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending March 20, according to MRC Data.

Karol G adds a 13th No. 1 in her 22nd appearance, the second-most for a woman after Shakira’s 15 leaders. Meanwhile, Becky G captures her fourth No. 1.

With the latest success, ‘Mamiii” joins a group of four other tracks which have ruled all six Latin charts concurrently in the last five years. Here’s a recap of the champs:

Title, Artist, Date Reached No. 1
“Chantaje,” Shakira featuring Maluma, Jan. 14, 2017
“Despacito,” Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber, March 25, 2017; April 8, 2017, April 22 – July-1, 2017
“Mi Gente,” J Balvin and Willy Williams, featuring Beyoncé, Oct. 21, 2017; Nov. 4-25, 2017
“Con Calma,” Daddy Yankee, featuring Snow, May 25, 2019; June 15-29, 2019
“Mamiii,” Becky G & Karol G, March 26, 2022

Thanks to its growing airplay across Latin stations in the U.S., “Mamiii” holds strong at the summit on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart despite a dip in both streams and digital sales for the tracking week ending in March 17. On the former, it registered 11.3 million U.S. clicks with a 2% decline, which removes it from the top 10 on the overall Streaming Songs survey (9-17) but enough to continue at the lead on Latin Streaming Songs. On the latter, it likewise holds steady at the penthouse with a little over 1,000 downloads sold.

Adding to Karol G’s triumph “Mamiii” becomes the first song to rule the hybrid Hot Latin Songs chart and three airplay charts (Latin Airplay, Latin Pop Airplay, and Latin Rhythm Airplay) in over two years. Who did it prior? Well, herself, as “Tusa,” with Nicki Minaj, led all four rankings on the Feb. 15, 2020-dated list.

Becky G’s Collaboration with Karol G, “Mamiii,” Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay Chart

Becky G is celebrating a pop-tastic honor…

The 25-year-old Mexican American singer, rapper and actress has scored a No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay chart with “Mamiii,” her collaboration with Karol G, jumping from No. 3 on the chart to lead the March 19-dated survey.

Becky G & Karol GThe rise to the summit comes four weeks after the song debuted in the top spot on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, giving Becky G her first No. 1 on Billboard’s the chart.

The new win trails two other Latin charts where the tune concurrently rules for a fourth week: Latin Digital Song Sales and Latin Streaming Songs.

On the former, it leads with 1,700 downloads sold, despite a 17% dip in sales, in the week ending March 10, according to MRC Data. On the latter, it holds at the summit despite a 10% decline in streams: the track logged 11.5 million U.S. streams in the same tracking period.

Back on Latin Pop Airplay, “Mamiii” reigns in its fifth week thanks to a 25% gain in audience impressions, to 8 million, earned in the week ending March 13.

It marks the fastest ascent in over a year. Rauw Alejandro’s “Todo De Ti” was the last champ to hit No. 1 quicker, with just four weeks before its coronation in June 2021.

Among female artists, Becky G and Karol G’s sprint to the speediest rise to No. 1 list since Shakira when “La Bicicleta,” her collaboration with Carlos Vives, took four weeks to reach the top spot in 2016.

In total, “Mamiii” becomes the 35th of 307 Latin Pop Airplay No. 1s to reach the penthouse in five weeks or better.

While Becky G scores her second No. 1 on Latin Pop Airplay (after “Sin Pijama,” with Natti Natasha, in 2018), Karol G clocks her sixth.

Here’s a recap of Karol G’s No. 1s:

Song Title, Artist, Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
“Créeme,” with Maluma, one, March 2, 2019
“China,” with Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Ozuna and J Balvin, two, Oct. 12, 2019
“Tusa,” with Nicki Minaj, 15, Feb. 15, 2020
“Ay, Dios Mio!” one, Oct. 10, 2020
“Location,” four, April 3, 2021
“Mamiii,” Becky G x Karol G, March 19

Aventura’s “Volví,” Featuring Bad Bunny, Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart

Aventura has officially returned to the top of the charts…

The Dominican-American bachata group leads Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as its new single “Volví,” with Bad Bunny, rises 2-1 in its second week (August 21-dated survey). It’s Aventura’s third No. 1, and first since 2010’s “Dile Al Amor.”

Bad Bunny x Aventura

The bachata-rhythmic tune takes the lead of the airplay-, streaming-, and digital-blended list boosted by gains in both streams and airplay. “Volví” generated 14.6 million U.S. streams (up 25%) in the week ending August 12, according to MRC Data, enough to enter the all-genre Streaming Songs chart’s top 10 (a 16-10 leap that takes the Greatest Gainer honors). Concurrently, the song holds at No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs for a second week.

“Volví,” a midnight release on August 3, was teased by both Bad Bunny and Aventura’s Romeo Santos on their Instagram accounts just hours before. The pair has since performed the song live for the first time on Saturday night (August 14) at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami; the group’s first sold out date of its Inmortal stadium tour.

“Volví” grants Aventura its first No. 1 on the all-metric tally since the nine-week leader “Dile Al Amor” in 2010. Previously, the Dominicans led with “Por Un Segundo” (two weeks atop in 2009). Bad Bunny, meanwhile, captures his ninth No. 1, a lead following his first 2021 win: “Yonaguni,” which remained atop Hot Latin Songs for five weeks starting the June 19-dated tally.

“Volví” also reigns thanks to a lift on radio airplay: it pushes 50-31 on Latin Airplay with 3.5 million audience impressions (up 33%).

Kali Uchis Earns First No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart with “Telepatía”

Kali Uchis is celebrating another first on the Latin music charts…

A month after “Telepatía” reigned on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart for four weeks (May 22-June 12-dated lists), the 26-year-old half-Colombian American singer’s ubiquitous single rises 5-1 on the Latin Airplay chart dated July 3. It’s her first No. 1 on the chart.

Kali Uchis

The single is her second chart entry on the Latin Airplay chart and her first as a lead act. She previously charted via her featured role on Juanes‘ No. 23-peaking “El Ratico” in 2017.

The steady march of “Telepatía” on radio airplay sends the TikTok hit to No. 1 on the all-Latin genre radio ranking. The track climbs to the top in its 11th week on the list, and with its fourth consecutive weekly gain in audience impressions. It earned 9.6 million in audience in the week ending May 16 — up 30% from the previous week — according to MRC Data.

The song’s Latin Airplay coronation comes after it earlier reached No. 1 on the Latin Streaming Songs chart and Latin Digital Song Sales. The song ruled the Hot Latin Songs chart (which blends airplay, streams and song sales) for four weeks (May 22-June 12 charts). On the latest Hot Latin Songs chart, the track holds at No. 2.

“Telepatía” also jumps 2-1 on Latin Pop Airplay and sends Rauw Alejandro’s pop-disco “Todo De Ti” to the runner-up slot after its two-week reign.

“Telepatía” is Uchis’ first charting single on Latin Pop Airplay without an accompanying act. “El Ratico” peaked at No. 10 in September 2017 and “La Luz (Fin),” with Jhay Cortez, reached No. 16 in January.

Both “Telepatía” and “La Luz” are part of Uchis’ album Sin Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios), which has spent nine weeks at No. 1 on Latin Pop Albums.

Beyond its Latin Airplay and Latin Pop Airplay No. 1s, “Telepatía” continues to climb on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, as the track rises 30-25. It’s her second entry on the chart, following the No. 93 peak of “Get You,” by Daniel Caesar featuring Uchis.

Elsewhere, “Telepatía” rebounds 2-1 on Latin Digital Song Sales after its 11-week lead with 1,400 downloads sold in the week ending June 24.

“Bandido” is one of four tracks from Tower’s EP Para Mi Ex, which has not entered the Billboard charts.

Bad Bunny Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Hot Latin Songs Chart with “Dakiti,” Featuring Jhay Cortez

Bad Bunny has gone straight to the top…

The 26-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer’s “Dakiti,” featuring Jhay Cortez, debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart dated November 17.

Bad Bunny & Jhay Cortez

The new collaboration is just the third song to debut atop the chart in 2020 and the seventh No. 1 of 2020 in total. It concurrently earns the biggest week in terms of streaming for a Latin song in 2020.

“Working with Jhay is always a good experience,” Bad Bunny tells Billboard. “We’ve worked together on the remix of ‘No Me Conoce,’ which was a global hit, and the remix of ‘Como Se Siente,’ and people have always enjoyed our collaborations. In this case, it’s the first time we were able to work together in the studio, unlike the other two songs that were done via phone. Sharing ideas in person is the key of the success of the song.”

“Dakiti” bows atop Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, digital sales and streams, mainly on the strength of streaming activity and downloads, after earning 22.2 million streams in the week ending November 5, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The song yields a No. 3 debut on the overall Streaming Songs chart and a No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs. The song earns the biggest week for a Latin song in terms of streaming activity in 2020. What takes the runner-up slot? Well, his own “Si Veo a Tu Mamá,” which opened with 19 million streams on the March 14-dated list.

“Dakiti” concurrently sold 5,000 downloads in its first tracking week, prompting a No. 1 opening on Latin Digital Song Sales and No. 12 on the all-genre Digital Song Sales chart.

“The creative process of this song was different than my previous works,” Bad Bunny adds. “I usually have a main idea for a song. For this one, though, Jhay composed the base, the initial rhythm and the main idea together with Mora. I then added to the evolution of the production, rhythm and lyrics with Tainy. It was a combined effort, which is unusual for me, but when one works as a team, great things come out. It’s been like a drug, literally. Everyone has gone crazy over ‘Dakiti.’”

“Dakiti” is just the third title to open at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs in 2020. Notably, all three have had Bad Bunny as a lead act. Prior to “Dakiti” his own “Si Veo a Tu Mamá” and “Un Día (One Day)” with J Balvin, Dua Lipa and Tainy, both arrived at the penthouse on the March 14- and the August 8-dated lists.

As Bad Bunny clocks his sixth No. 1, Cortez captures his first No. 1 ever on a Billboard hybrid chart.

“Dakiti” is also just the seventh No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs in 2020. Let’s take a look at the leaderboard:

Chart Date, Title, Artist

Jan. 4, “Ritmo (Bad Boys For Life),” Black Eyed Peas X J Balvin
Feb. 1, “Tusa,” Karol G & Nicki Minaj
March 14, “Si Veo A Tu Mama,” Bad Bunny
July 18, “Mamacita,” Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna + J.Rey Soul
Aug. 8, “Un Día (One Day),” J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny & Tainy
Sept. 12, “Hawai,” Maluma
Nov. 14, “Dakiti,” Bad Bunny & Jhay Cortez

“Dakiti” concurrently achieves a No. 9 showing on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song becomes just the second all-Spanish tune to debut in the list’s top 10. The first was also a Bad Bunny tune (“MIA,” with Drake, arrived at No. 5 in October 2018.)

“It’s such an honor that this song is the second song completely in Spanish to debut top 10 in the Hot 100 chart,” Bad Bunny says. “The fact that the first song is also mine feels great. My dream was to record with Drake, it was an incredible experience, but this one is very special because it’s a song that came out of nothing. We didn’t expect to have success of this magnitude. Working with Jhay, both Latinos from Puerto Rico representing at a global level, fills me with pride as we are competing amongst great songs and artists.”

Daddy Yankee Earns 80th Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart with “Don Don,” Featuring Anuel AA & Kendo Kaponi

Daddy Yankee is pushing 80…

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican rap supserstar’s “Don Don,” featuring Anuel AA and Kendo Kaponi has debutedat No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart dated September 26.

Daddy Yankee

The song earns Daddy Yankee his 80th entry on the list — and places him in a tie with Ozuna for the second-most entries since the tally’s inception in 1986. Bad Bunny continues at the helm with 96 total entries.

“Don Don” was released on September 11 via El Cartel and produced byMambo Kingz and DJ Luian. Hot Latin Songs blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data.

“Don Don” arrives in the top 10 powered by streaming activity. The three-generational Puerto Rican collaboration logged 4 million U.S. clicks in the week ending September 17, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, yielding to a No. 8 debut on the Latin Streaming Songs chart.

Sales also helped boost the song’s debut: 2,000 downloads sold in the week ending September 17 and entering at No. 1 on Latin Digital Song Sales. With eight No. 1s on the tally Daddy Yankee ties with Ozuna for the third-most leaders, both trailing Shakira (11) and J Balvin (10).

While Kendo Kaponi secures his first Hot Latin Songs top 10, Anuel AA claims his 18th and Daddy Yankee stretches his third-most top 10s to 34.

With “Don Don”’s arrival, Daddy Yankee and Anuel each place two songs on the chart’s upper tier. The former remains at No. 2 for a second week with “Relación,” with Sech and J Balvin, featuring Rosalía and Farruko, while the latter places at No. 5 with “La Jeepeta,” with Nio García, Myke Towers, Brray and Juanka.

J Balvin’s Collaboration with Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny & Tainy, “Un Día (One Day),” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart

It’s a perfect Day for J Balvin

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.

J Balvin

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).

“Un Día” was produced by Tainy and arrived with a music video directed by Colombian Stillz, which features Spanish actress Úrsula Corberó (Netflix’s Money Heist).

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.
