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.
The 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.
