Plus, Banda Carnaval Leads Regional Mexican Songs chart.

Following the smash hit “Despacito,” Luis Fonsi is back with his follow-up single, “Echame La Culpa,” with Demi Lovato. The song debuts at No. 3 on the Hot Latin Songs chart, following his former No. 1 “Despacito,” with Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber. The new single opens with 9.7 million streams and 33,000 downloads sold in the week ending Nov. 23, with 2.5 million in audience impressions (week ending Nov. 23), according to Nielsen Music.

Fonsi collects his 31st charted title and becomes the third act in 2017 to have two songs concurrently in the top three. Previously, Daddy Yankee did it on the Feb. 4 list with “Despacito” and his own “Shaky Shaky” and Maluma notched four weeks in a row in June with “Felices Los 4” and his featured turn on Shakira’s “Chantaje.”

Meanwhile, “Despacito” — which was awarded four Latin Grammy Awards on Nov. 16 and is nominated for three more for the 2018 Grammy Awards — earns the chart’s Greatest Gainer/Streaming award, climbing to 21.7 million. The single holds at No. 2.

Over on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, Banda Carnaval moves to the top of the list (2-1) with “Como No Adorarla.” The track is up 19 percent in audience at the format, rising to 12.5 million for the week.

“Como” is the second single from the Como No Quieriendo album, following the former No. 1 “Ella Es Mi Mujer” (July 29). In total, the band has scored five leaders on the tally.
