Make it five chart-toppers in a row for Rosalia…
The 30-year-old Spanish Grammy- and Latin Grammy-winning singer/songwriter’s Romeo Santos-collaboration “El Pañuelo” rises 2-1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart to crown the February 25-dated survey.
The new coronation extends Santos’ record as the tropical artist with the most No. 1s (22), while Rosalía earns her sixth champ (and her fifth straight leader.)
In the February 10-16 tracking period, “El Pañuelo” earned 11 million audience impressions in the U.S., up 1% from the week prior, according to Luminate.
It advances from the runner-up slot in its 15th week and sends Bizarrap and Shakira’s “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53” to No. 2 (with a 2% dip to 10.6 million impressions).
It’s the second time “El Pañuelo” has topped a Latin chart. The new coronation arrives three weeks after the song reached No. 1 on Tropical Airplay (February 4-dated ranking), where it remains for a third week (in between, the song dipped to No. 3 on Feb. 11).
Back on Latin Airplay, as “El Pañuelo” arrives at the summit, Santos extends his No. 1 record among tropical artists, and enters a tie with Maluma and Wisin for the fifth-most overall, since the chart launched in 1994.
Here’s the leaderboard:
35, J Balvin
32, Enrique Iglesias
27, Daddy Yankee
22, Romeo Santos
20, Bad Bunny
18, Ricky Martin
Rosalía picks up her sixth leader and fifth straight Latin Airplay No. 1 in over two years, since her featured turn in Sech’s “Relación,” with Daddy Yankee and J Balvin, which also features Farruko, topped the all-genre tally in September 2020.
Prior, Rosalia scored her first ruler with “Yo X Ti, Tú X Mi,” with Ozuna in 2019.
