Following the 19-week reign of his anthem “Despacito," Luis Fonsi is back atop the Latin Airplay chart with “Echame la Culpa” with Demi Lovato, as the song rises 4-1 in its seventh week frame (dated Jan. 20). The track earned 15.3 million in audience impressions (up 15 percent) in the week ending Jan. 14 according to Nielsen Music.  The new chart-topper earns Fonsi his eighth No. 1 and Lovato her first. 

“Echame La Culpa” also lifts 2-1 on the Latin Pop Airplay chart, rising 17 percent in plays in the format.

Over on the Hot Latin Songs chart -- which blends airplay, sales and streams -- “Echame La Culpa” holds at its No. 4 ranking for a third consecutive week, earning the week’s Digital and Airplay Greatest Gainer honors. The track increases in all metrics: up 8 percent in streams to 8.7 million in the week ending Jan. 11, 4 percent in downloads to 6,000 downloads sold, and 13 percent in all-format audience impressions to 17.1 million in the week ending Jan. 14.  (Meanwhile, Fonsi’s “Despacito,” with Daddy Yankee and featuring Justin Bieber, nets a 38th week at No. 1.)

Elsewhere on the Latin Airplay chart, regional Mexican group Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga score their 13th top 10 on the tally as “El Color de Tus Ojos” ascends 15-10 in its 19th frame. The song is up 5 percent to 9.5 million in audience impressions. 

Over on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, Wisin's “Todo Comienza en La Disco,” featuring Yandel and Daddy Yankee, jumps 12-8 in its sixth frame (up 12 percent to 8.8 million in audience). It's the 18th top 10 for both Wisin and Yandel as solo acts (and as a duo, the pair racked up 29 top 10s).

"Todo" follows "Como Antes" -- credited to Yandel featuring Wisin -- which led the list for two weeks in 2017. 

Finally, Piso 21’s “Dejala Que Vuelva,” featuring Manuel Turizo, enters the top 10 on the Tropical Airplay chart as the song lifts 11-8 in its sixth charting frame with 3.4 million in audience (up 60 percent). The rise earns both acts their first top 10 on the chart.
