It’s the first win for Shakira, dating back to her maiden visit to the tally with the top 20 “Clandestino,” with Maluma, in 2018.

The “Te Felicito” climb, meanwhile, marks Rauw Alejandro’s third No. 1 among a collection of 33 entries: “Tattoo,” with Camilo (July 2020), “Todo de Ti” (June 2021), both one-week champs, and now “Te Felicito.”

The Argentina Hot 100 ranks the most popular songs within Argentina.  The ranking is based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading audio and video music services as well as national radio airplay and plays of songs featured on a variety of Argentine TV networks.

Streaming data is provided by Luminate, while radio and TV measurement is tracked by BMAT/Vericast.

“Te Felicito” is the sixth collaborative title, among eight No. 1s, to lead the tally in 2022.

Here’s the scoreboard:

Title, Artist, Peak Date
“Bar,” Tini & L-Gante (Jan. 1)
“Entre Nosotros,” Tiago pzk, LIT killa, Nicki Nicole & Maria Becerra (Jan. 8; nine weeks at No. 1)
“Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 49,” Bizarrap & Residente (March 5)
“Universo Paralelo,” La K’onga Featuring Nahuel Pennisi (March 19)
“Paulo Londra: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 23,” Paulo Londra & Bizarrap (April 30, two weeks at No. 1)
“Te Felicito,” Shakira & Rauw Alejandro (June 18)

Notably, the two other No. 1s belong to already winners Paulo Londra and TINi, both which have held atop the survey for five consecutive weeks as solo acts, unaccompanied by any other artist, with “Plan A” (starting the March 26-dated tally) and “La Triple T” (starting the chart dated May 14), respectively.
