Gerardo Ortiz clocks his 10th No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart (dated June 27) as “Otra Borrachera” lifts 4-1. It dethrones Christian Nodal’s “Se Me Olvidó” from its six-nonconsecutive-week run at No. 1.

“Otra Borrachera” is the second single off Ortiz’s Más Caro, Que Ayer which debuted at No. 7 on the Regional Mexican Albums Chart (March 7-dated list). It follows the No. 10-peaking single “Más Caro Que Ayer.”

“I’m extremely proud of this achievement,” Ortiz tells Billboard. “A 10th No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart fills me with satisfaction. I’m very happy that ‘Otra Borrachera’ was liked by the audience and that is playing around the country. I’m grateful with my team and fans for this No. 1.”

“Otra Borrachera” lifts with 6.2 million in audience impressions (up 15%) earned in the week ending June 21, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The tune is Ortiz’s first leader since Sept. 2018. The singer-songwriter previously reigned with “Egoista,” a single off his seventh studio album Comeré Callado Vol. 2,which  topped the Regional Mexican Airplay chart for one week.

In addition to its Regional Mexican Airplay coronation, “Otra Borrachera” strengthens its traction on the overall Latin Airplay chart entering the top 10 for the first time, hiking 15-9 in its 13th week. It’s his 13th top 10 there.

The single also sees progress over on Hot Latin Songs chart, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data. “Otra Borrachera” re-enters at No. 44 thanks to its airplay boost.

“Otra Borrachera” is Ortiz’s 10th No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, dating back to his first, "Amor Confuso," in April 2012. It earned the norteño singer four weeks at the helm. His longest reign arrived a few months later: “Solo Vine a Despedirme” led the chart for 12 consecutive weeks starting on the Nov. 3, 2012-dated tally.
