Carlos Vives’ latest single has reached the summit of another Billboard chart…
A week after rising to No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart, the 60-year-old Colombian singer, songwriter and actor’s collaboration with Camilo has reached the No. 1 rank on the overall Latin Airplay chart as “Baloncito Viejo” rules the June 18-dated list.
“Baloncito Viejo” becomes Vives’ 16th No. 1 on Latin Airplay, and first in almost three years.
He last achieved a No. 1 with “Si Me Das Tu Amor,” with Wisin, in August 2019.
In between, he’s scored four other entries, including “Canción Bonita” with Ricky Martin, the only other single — along with “Baloncito Viejo” — that appears on his latest studio album, Cumbiana II, which has secured a spot on the overall genre tally (the album debuted and peaked at No. 14 on the May 28-dated Tropical Albums chart).
Camilo, meanwhile, clocks his sixth leader and first of the year. It follows “Millones” which ruled for one week in July 2021. Along with “Baloncito Viejo,” Camilo also charts with “Pegao” on Latin Airplay, at No. 42 on the current chart week.
Elsewhere, “Baloncito Viejo” rises to a new peak on Latin Pop Airplay with an equal 2-1 ascent. The move marks Vives first No. 1 in almost six years, since “La Bicicleta,” with Shakira, topped the ranking for 12 consecutive weeks, starting the July 9, 2016-dated chart.
Notably, both artists capture their fifth champ on Latin Pop Airplay.
Further, “Baloncito Viejo” holds its No. 1 rank on Tropical Airplay for a second week.
Airplay gains likewise push the song up the all-metric Hot Latin Songs, which factors radio airplay, song sales and streaming into its calculations. “Baloncito Viejo” climbs 50-41 and takes home the Greatest Gainer/Airplay honors.
