The 28-year-old Colombian singer, musician and songwriter has notched his third No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart dated Aug. 13 as “Pegao” rises to the top spot in its 11th week.

The single ends Manuel Turizo’s one-week command with “La Bachata” (Aug. 6-dated survey), as it drops to No. 2 on the latest chart.

The cumbia villera “Pegao” marks a new career achievement for Camilo’s Tropical Airplay career history, becoming his first champ on a lead role, unaccompanied by any other act. The track was co-written alongside Edgar Barrera with the collaboration of Andres Castro.

“Pegao” follows Camilo’s two-week champ “Baloncito Viejo,” with Carlos Vives (June 11-18-dated lists). Previously, he logged his first champ also through a co-lead collab, “Kesi,” with Shawn Mendes (Aug. 21, 2021).

Manuel Turizo has another tropical hit… 

The 22-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer has logged his second No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart — and first as a lead artist — with “La Bachata,” which rises from No. 4 to lead the August 6-dated ranking.

Manuel Turizo“La Bachata” sends Don Omar, Wisin and Gente de Zona’s “Soy Yo” to No. 3 after four consecutive weeks at the summit.

“La Bachata,” released May 26 via La Industria/Sony Music Latin, collected 5.6 million in audience impressions in the U.S. in the week ending July 31, according to Luminate, up 18% gain from the week prior.

Yahritza Martinez and her brothers are taking their music career to greater heights…

The 15-year-old Mexican singer and her siblings Jairo and Armando Martinez, best known by their group name Yahritza y Su Esencia, have signed a worldwide deal with SESAC Latina.

Yahritza Martinez, Yahritza y Su Esencia,The Martinez siblings have now joined a roster that includes chart-topping artists like Nicky Jam, Edén Muñoz, Christian Nodal, Erika Ender, Manuel Turizo, among others.

“We are very excited to welcome Yahritza y Su Esencia to the SESAC Latina family,” Celeste Zendejas, vice president, SESAC Latina, said in a statement. “Their debut single premiered at number one on the Hot Latin Songs Billboard chart, and they are growing into a cultural phenomenon in the Mexican genre. We are honored to be part of their continued success.”

To mark the beginning of their new deal with the performance-rights organization, Yahritza Y Su Esencia — who are signed to indie label Lumbre Music — took the stage to perform “Enamorado” and “Soy El Único” during the 2022 SESAC Latina Music ceremony on June 29.

Yahritza y Su EsenciaTheir partnership with SESAC Latina comes on the heels of the trio’s unprecedented success, which has catapulted them to the top of the Billboard charts.

Earlier this year, the self-taught musicians made history with the sad sierreño anthem “Soy El Unico” as the track scored a No. 20 entry on the Billboard Hot 100, making lead singer Yahritza the youngest Latin performer to enter the all-genre tally.

Additionally, “Soy El Único,” penned by Yahritza at age 13, debuted at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart dated April 9.

“I don’t write my songs specifically for anyone. I just observe what’s going on around me and I get ideas from it,” she previously told Billboard.

Chencho Corleone Earns First No. 1 in a Lead Role on a Billboard Radio Chart with “Desesperados” with Rauw Alejandro

Chencho Corleone has earned a special first…

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican singer, composer and actor has earned his first No. 1 in a lead role on a Billboard radio chart as “Desesperados,” with Rauw Alejandro, tops the Latin Airplay chart dated July 2.

Chencho Corleone“Desesperados,” promoted to radio through Duars/Sony Music Latin, rises 4-1 it its 14th week thanks to a 22% boost in audience impressions, to 10.6 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 26, according to Luminate.

The track displaces another Sony Music Latin title from the lead: Prince Royce and Maria Becerra’s “Te Espero,” sending it to No. 5 after its one-week reign.

While Corleone claims his best performance among three Latin Airplay entries, Rauw clocks his ninth No. 1, all earned within a two-year period, dating back to “TBT,” with Sebastian Yatra and Manuel Turizo, in July 2020.

The surge in “Desesperados” impressions gives the song its corresponding lift on Latin Rhythm Airplay, which measures the most-heard Latin rhythmic songs also through audience impressions metrics. There, the song jumps 2-1 in its 15th week.

The move also secures Corleone his first leader in a lead role on Latin Rhythm Airplay and second overall. His maiden champ arrived almost eight years ago, through his featured role in Tito El Bambino’s five-week ruler “A Que No Te Atreves” in September 2014. As the song held atop the survey in its third week, it concurrently topped Tropical Airplay for one week (October 2014).

Corleone’s chart rewards continue across Latin charts. His first collaboration with compatriot Bad Bunny has sustained his Hot Latin Songs domination for a seven-week run (and counting): “Me Porto Bonito” leads the all-metric tally (a blend of airplay, streaming activity, and digital sales) thanks to 22.7 million official streams, up 5%, in the week ending June 23.

While “Me Porto” holds strong at No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs, it’s the only Spanish-language track in the top 10 on the overall Streaming Songs survey, at No. 6, among a collection of five Drake debuts and four other English-language songs.

In addition to its streaming count, “Me Porto” traces its Hot Latin Songs domination to 1,000 downloads sold. The song remains at No. 2 on Latin Digital Song Sales for a second week.
