Plus, Bad Bunny & Jhay Cortez’ “Dákiti” lands in the tally’s top 10.

Bad Bunny and Daddy Yankee’s “La Santa” hits No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart (rising 5-1 on the chart dated Dec. 5). The song is one of 20 tracks from Benito’s YHLQMDLG, his second-longest charting title at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums (35 weeks and counting).

“La Santa” reaches No. 1 in its 14th week with a 57% gain in audience impressions, rising to 11 million in the week ending Nov. 29, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

With the jump, Daddy Yankee breaks away from a tie with Ozuna and becomes the act with the third-most leaders since the chart’s inception in 1994, with 22. Bad Bunny, meanwhile, clocks his 12th No. 1, which dates back to his featured role in Becky G’s “Mayores,” his first entry and first leader in February 2018.

Meanwhile Bad Bunny's latest single “Dákiti,” with Jhay Cortez, enters Latin Airplay’s top 10 for the first time at No. 8 (up six spots from is previous peak of No. 14), thanks to a 33% increase in audience, to 7 million. While Bad Bunny collects his 17th top 10, Cortez secures his second.

“Dákiti” is Bad Bunny’s first single from El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo, his third studio album released in 2020. The set dropped Thursday, Nov. 26, at 11 p.m. ET and bows at No. 20 on Top Latin Albums after just one hour of activity. (The sales and streaming tracking week for the Top Latin Albums chart runs Friday through Thursday each week.)

“Dákiti” continues strong on the airplay-, streaming- and digital sales-blended Hot Latin Songs chart, holding at No. 1 for a fourth week.

Over on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, it drops 9-15.
