Plus, Kali Uchis' "Telepatía" arrives in the top 10 on Hot Latin Songs.

Daddy Yankee and Marc Anthony score their first No. 1 together, as “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” lands atop the Latin Airplay chart dated Feb. 27. Their team-up earns Yankee his 23rd leader, which places him as the artist with the third-most No. 1s.

“De Vuelta” traces its 3-1 jump to a 16% boost in audience impressions, to 11.1 million, earned in the week ending Feb. 21, according to MRC Data. The song was produced by Sergio George and written by Edgar Barrera, Elena Rose, Yankee, Marc Anthony, Rafael A. Pina Nieves and Sergio George.

With 23 home runs, dating back to “Rompe” leading for 15 weeks in 2005, Yankee breaks away from a tie with Ozuna to become the third among all acts in terms of No. 1s, standing only behind Enrique Iglesias’ 31 leaders and J Balvin’s 27. Here’s the leaderboard of acts with at least 20 No. 1s on Latin Airplay:

31, Enrique Iglesias
27, J Balvin
23, Daddy Yankee
22, Ozuna
20, Maluma

Marc Anthony, who ups his career count to 12, captures his first No. 1 since 2015 when “La Gozadera” ruled for one week in August.

Over on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, digital sales and streams, “De Vuelta” remains at No. 9 for a second week. It concurrently makes a dent in the sales realm, as it rebounds 8-6 on Latin Digital Song Sales with a little over 500 downloads sold.

“Telepatía” Arrives: Back on Hot Latin Songs, Kali Uchis secures her first top 10, as “Telepatía” debuts at No. 10. The single appears on the Colombian’s all-Spanish-language LP Sin Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios), a No. 2 start and peak on Latin Pop Albums and a No. 8 peak on Top Latin Albums.

The song's breakthrough on the all-metric chart owes its entrance largely to its popularity on TikTok, where millions have been sharing videos with a song that talks about keeping a love connection alive from a distance, reflective of current times.

The song has soundtracked more than 25 million videos on the app.  The song reaches the top 10 on Hot Latin Songs mainly on the strength of streaming. It registered 3.4 million U.S. clicks on the week ending Feb. 18, which yields a No. 8 start on Latin Streaming Songs. (TikTok activity does not contribute to the charts).
