Plus, Dalex secures third top 10 on Latin Rhythm Albums with "Modo Avión."

Edwin Luna y La Trakalosa de Monterrey nab their first No. 1 on a U.S. Billboard Latin airplay chart, as “Dormida” lifts 2-1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay ranking (dated April 4).

The Luna-fronted band first hit the chart in 2017 with the No. 4-peaking "Un Aplauso." Luna himself scored his first entry two years earlier, through his featured role on Banda Tierra Sagrada's "Terreno Limpio," peaking at No. 40 in 2015.

With a first No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, Luna y La Trakalosa join the only other act who has also scored its first No. 1 on the tally in 2020: Alejandro Fernández, who secured his debut leader when “Caballero” landed atop the list on the Jan. 11-dated survey.

“Dormida” pushes to the top of the list with 8.3 million in audience impressions (up 20%) earned in the week ending March 29, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, and dethrones Calibre 50’s “Solo Tú” from it five-week reign.

Over on the overall Latin Airplay chart, “Dormida” also enters the top 10, climbing 14-10. It concurrently earns the band its first top 10 on the list.

Dalex’s Third Try: Meanwhile, Dalex scores his third top 10 with his third debut on the Latin Rhythm Albums chart, as the Puerto Rican artist’s EP, Modo Avión, arrives at No. 9.

“I feel happy and blessed that this is my third top 10 on Billboard’s Latin Rhythm Albums chart, but we will continue making music until we reach that No. 1,” Dalex tells Billboard.

Modo Avión, which translates to Airplane Mode, was released via Rich Music on March 19 and performed live for the first time as part of Rich Music’s #YouTubeandChill Live Stream Virtual Concert Series, in association with YouTube Music. The EP features a few urban and pop acts, including Natti Natasha, Anitta, Sech, Farruko, Justin Quiles, Lenny Tavarez, Yemil and Jay Wheeler.

The nine-track EP opens with 3,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending March 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, with its initial sum mostly attributed to streaming data.

Latin Rhythm Albums ranks the most popular Latin rhythm albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Modo Avión registered 2,000 SEA units, which equates to 3.7 million on-demand streams for the set’s tracks.

“Just as my other productions, Modo Avión means time, effort, work and dedication so that my audience can enjoy a production with quality,” Dalex continues.

On the Top Latin Albums chart, Modo Avión arrives at No. 12, Dalex’s third top 15 entry.
