"I knew I wanted a male voice on 'Baila Conmigo' and I love Rauw's voice; I think he brings the right amount of sexiness to the song," Gomez tells Billboard. "I have to say I am blown away by the response to the first two songs. I put my heart and soul into the music and wanted it to be perfect, so I am very grateful."
"Baila" earns both 28-year-olds their third top 10 on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, streaming and sales data. Prior to her latest two entries, Gomez spent 13 weeks at No. 1 in 2018-19 as featured, with Ozuna and Cardi B, on DJ Snake's "Taki Taki."
Alejandro, meanwhile, nabs his highest Hot Latin Songs career rank, besting "La Nota" with Manuel Turizo and Myke Towers; the collab reached No. 5 three weeks ago. In September, his first top 10, "Tattoo" with Camilo, reached No. 7.
"I always knew that this song was going to be a hit ever since I entered the studio with Tainy," Rauw Alejandro tells Billboard. "'Baila Conmigo' has a unique vibe. I am so thankful for the support that the fans had given us and with Selena for having me as a guest in this incredible track."
The Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa, and NEON16-produced "Baila" is Gomez's third leader on Latin Digital Song Sales and Alejandro's first.
Elsewhere, the song debuts at No. 74 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, earning Alejandro his first entry. Gomez adds her 36th, with "Baila" outpacing "De Una Vez," which spent a week at No. 92.
"Baila" also makes a notable worldwide chart start, entering the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. tally at No. 15 and the Billboard Global 200 at No. 22.
