The Marc Anthony collaboration jumps 11-8.

Daddy Yankee breaks the record for the most top 10s on the Latin Airplay chart, as “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta,” his collaboration with Marc Anthony, lifts 11-8 on the Jan. 16 survey. Yankee breaks out of a tie with Enrique Iglesias and takes possession of the mark for the most top 10s since the chart began in 1994.

“De Vuelta” advances 11-8 assisted by an 11% boost in audience impressions, to 8 million, collected in the week ending Jan. 10, according to MRC Data.

Going down the list of the artists with at least 25 top 10s in the history of Latin Airplay, only one female acts secures a space, let’s take a look:

Elsewhere, “De Vuelta” dips 13-14 on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart with declines in digital sales and streams. On Tropical Airplay, however, it remains at No. 1 for a third week.
