It’s his third No. 1 on the chart this year, after 'Si Me Dices Que Si' and 'Relacion.'

Farruko tallies his ninth career No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (dated Nov. 28), as “La Toxica” rises 3-1 in its 15th week on the chart.

The song hits No. 1 with 12.3 million radio audience impressions earned (up 20%) in the tracking week ending Nov. 22, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Notably, “La Toxica” is Farruko’s third Latin Airplay No. 1 of 2020, following “Si Me Dices Que Si,” with Reik and Camilo, in June, and “Relacion” (Sech, Daddy Yankee & J Balvin featuring Rosalia & Farruko) in September. The new track also earns Farruko his eighth No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay.
