The trio continues a trend of acts that record primarily in English leading the list.

Sebastián Yatra, Daddy Yankee, Jonas Brothers and Natti Natasha take over atop the Latin Airplay chart (dated Oct. 5) with “Runaway,” which rules with 14.31 million in audience, according to Nielsen Music.

The Jonas Brothers, who in March earned their first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 with "Sucker," continue a trend of acts that primarily record in English contributing to Latin Airplay leaders, following such artists this year as Katy Perry (with Daddy Yankee on "Con Calma," featuring Snow) and Drake (as featured on Bad Bunny's "Mia").

Since the start of 2017, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Fifth Harmony, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato have also led the list.

Jonas Brothers additionally become the seventh act overall to snag a first Latin Airplay No. 1 in 2019, following Perry ("Con Calma"); Pedro Capó ("Calma," with Farruko); Lunay ("Soltera," with Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny); Tainy ("Callaita," with Bad Bunny); and both Sech and Darell ("Otro Trago," with Nicky Jam, Ozuna and Anuel AA).

Daddy Yankee collects his 16th Latin Airplay No. 1, Natasha notches her sixth and Yatra adds his fourth. Yankee ties J Balvin for the fourth-most leaders, after Enrique Iglesias (30) and Ricky Martin and Romeo Santos (17 each).

"Runaway" also hits No. 1 on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart and bounds to No.3 on Latin Pop Airplay.

Four spots below on Latin Airplay, Daddy Yankee and Wisin & Yandel's "Si Supieras" jumps 12-5 thanks to a 24% boost to 10.3 million in audience. The Luny and Tainy-produced song is the latest collaboration among the acts, who last shared a No. 1 with "Todo Comienza En La Disco" in March 2018.
