On the overall Hot Latin Songs chart, which ranks the most popular Latin songs of the week by blending airplay, streams and sales, “X” is a non-mover at No. 2 for a fourth consecutive week (trailing Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber – more on that song in a moment).
Ozuna Regains Top Latin Albums Crown: After Ozuna’s Odisea dipped 1-2 on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated April 21) – when CNCO’s self-titled sophomore set opened at No. 1 – Odisea returns to the top slot for its 33rd nonconsecutive week atop the list (10,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 19, down less than 1 percent).

Yandel Notches 16th Top 10 on Latin Pop Songs Airplay Chart: Meanwhile, Yandel picks up his 16th top 10 on the Latin Pop Songs airplay chart, as his single “Solo Mia,” featuring Maluma, climbs 17-9 thanks to a 48 percent increase in plays at the format (in the week ending April 22).
‘Despacito’ Collects 52nd Week at No 1 on Hot Latin Songs: Back on the Hot Latin Songs chart, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber spends a 52nd nonconsecutive week atop the tally. (It continues to hold the record for the most weeks at No. 1.)
Will “Despacito” rule the Hot Latin Songs chart next week? With the tight margin between the smash and Nicky Jam and J Balvin’s “X” at No. 2, either title could claim the No. 1 slot next week. “X” continues to gain in airplay and streams, while “Despacito” declined in airplay, streams and sales on the latest chart.
