Daddy Yankee

The Anuel AA & Kendo Kaponi-collaborative effort earns Kaponi his first top 10.

Daddy Yankee, Anuel AA and Kendo Kaponi’s “Don Don” bows at No. 10 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Sept. 26). The song earns Daddy Yankee his 80th entry on the list -- and places him in a tie with Ozuna for the second-most entries since the tally’s inception in 1986. Bad Bunny continues at the helm with 96 total entries.

“Don Don” was released Sept. 11 via El Cartel and produced by Mambo Kingz and DJ Luian. Hot Latin Songs blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data.

“Don Don” arrives in the top 10 powered by streaming activity. The three-generational Puerto Rican collaboration logged 4 million U.S. clicks in the week ending Sept. 17, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, yielding to a No. 8 debut on the Latin Streaming Songs chart.

Sales, too, boost the song’s debut: 2,000 downloads sold in the week ending Sept. 17 and entering at No. 1 on Latin Digital Song Sales. With eight No. 1s on the tally Daddy Yankee ties with Ozuna for the third-most leaders, both trailing Shakira (11) and J Balvin (10).

While Kendo Kaponi secures his first Hot Latin Songs top 10, Anuel claims his 18th and Daddy Yankee stretches his third-most top 10s to 34.

With “Don Don”’s arrival, Daddy Yankee and Anuel each place two songs on the chart’s upper tier. The former remains at No. 2 for a second week with “Relación,” with Sech and J Balvin, featuring Rosalía and Farruko, while the latter places at No. 5 with “La Jeepeta,” with Nio García, Myke Towers, Brray and Juanka.


“Relacion” Powers to No. 1 on Latin Airplay Chart: Elsewhere on the Latin charts, Sech’s “Relacion” hits No. 1 on Latin Airplay thanks to its all-star remix released Sept. 4 which adds Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, and features Rosalía and Farruko.

“Relación” advances with 11 million in audience impressions, up 7 percent, earned in the week ending Sept. 20, and eradicates Ozuna’s “Caramelo” from its three-nonconsecutive week reign.

It’s the fifth leader for Sech, who secured his first No. 1 with the all-star hit “Otro Trago” in Aug. 2019. Meanwhile Daddy Yankee nabs his 21st, J Balvin extends his second-most No. 1s with 26, while Rosalía and Farruko, score their second and eighth, respectively.
