Plus: New top 10s on Latin Airplay for Maluma, J Balvin & Bad Bunny.

As Karol G and Nicki Minaj’s “Tusa” returns to No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Feb. 1) with Streaming Greatest Gainer honors, the track also surges 12-4 on Latin Airplay thanks to a 7% increase in audience impressions (to 7.7 million) earned in the week ending Jan. 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

It’s Minaj’s first top 10 on Latin Airplay. With her new Latin Airplay top 10, Minaj continues to expand her collection of top 10s across Billboard's various genre charts, having previously secured top 10s on such charts as Hot Latin Songs, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot Rap Songs, Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Hot Gospel Songs, Reggae Digital Song Sales, World Digital Song Sales, Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Dance Club Songs, Rhythmic Songs and Pop Songs. 

Karol G, meanwhile, scores her sixth top 10 on Latin Airplay, with her first in 2018 and all through collaborations.

“Tusa” also debuts at No. 43 on the overall Streaming Songs chart (up 37% with 12.8 million U.S. clicks collected in the week ending Jan. 23) and continues at No. 1 on the Latin Streaming Song Sales for a fourth week.

Elsewhere, “Tusa” climbs the all-genre Hot 100 with a 69-55 rise and hikes 7-3 on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart.

Maluma & J Balvin Are Not Sorry, Bad Bunny Leaves: That’s right, Maluma and J Balvin are not sorry about their first collaborative effort “Que Pena” rocketing up the Latin Airplay chart. The song, which translates into a sarcastic “I’m Sorry,” soars 34-8 thanks to a robust 46% boost in audience (to 6 million) earned in the week ending Jan. 26.

J Balvin ups his career count to 25 top 10s, a feat he now shares with Cristian Castro, Marc Anthony, Marco Antonio Solis and Wisin & Yandel for the fifth-most top 10s since the chart’s inception in 1994. Maluma logs his 16th top 10.

Bad Bunny, meanwhile, leaves Latin Airplay’s lower tier as “Vete” (Leave) climbs 18-8 in its eighth week frame. The track earned 6 million in audience impressions (up 8%) and becomes Bad Bunny’s 11th top 10.
