The song rises 8-1 in its 11th week.

It’s the second collaboration for the two artists, who previously paired up for the top 10 hit “Bella y Sensual” (2018), which also features Daddy Yankee.

It rallies to the top flanked by heavy support from New York’s WSKQ (up 906,000 in audience), Puerto Rico’s WODA (up 546,000) and Miami’s WXDJ (up 261,000).

The new chart champ gives Jam his 15th No. 1 and Santos, who last led the tally in 2019 with “Aullando,” his 18th.

It’s Alex Sensation’s first chart-topper as a lead act, as “La Mala y La Buena,” with Gente de Zona, steps 2-1 in its 13th frame.

He hosts daily programs on New York City’s La Mega 97.9 FM

Notably, La Mega 97.9 FM (WSKQ) contributes 26 percent of the overall weekly audience points that push the song to No. 1, while sister-station WXDJ Miami (a fellow Spanish Broadcasting System station) championed the song with 79 spins.

In November 2012, the song Balada (Tche Tcherere Tche Tche) became the number one song on the Billboard’s Tropical Song list, a track by Gusttavo Lima that featured Alex Sensation, as well as Pitbull.

Over his career, Alex Sensation has received an ACE Award from the Association of Latin Entertainment Critics, the Global Spin Award, and the Latin Mix Award.

Don Omar’s “Yo Te Quiero Pa’Mi” Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

Don Omar is back at the top of the charts…

The 38-year-old Puerto Rican reggaeton superstar has earned his eighth No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (dated December 24) as “Yo Te Quiero Pa’Mi,” with Zion & Lennox, bounds 11-1 in its fourth charting frame – his quickest chart-topping rise yet.

The single concurrently flies 7-1 on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, where it becomes Don Omar’s 12th leader.

A 40 percent increase in audience, to 13.6 million impressions in the week ending December 11, causes the No. 1 climbs.

New York’s WSKQ leads in audience impressions contributing towards its rank, with 3.8 million coming from the major-market station. Two San Juan, Puerto Rico stations (WODA and WKAQ) also provide significant points, with over 1 million weekly audience impressions, each.

The newly recorded single appears on Omar’s recent 10th anniversary re-release of his King of Kings album — his most successful album to date. In 2006, the original set spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart and has sold 556,000 copies, according to Nielsen Music.

King of Kings spurred Omar’s first No. 1 hit on Latin Airplay, when “Angelito” reached the top on the July 22, 2006 chart. The set’s “Salio El Sol” also became a top 20 hit that year.
