Assisted by a new remix with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, the track surges 16-4.

Nio García scores his fourth top 10 on Hot Latin Songs as “AM” soars 16-4 on the July 10-dated survey thanks to the song’s remix with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, released June 24.

The original song, billed as Nio García and Flow La Movie, was released Jan. 28 and reached a No. 11 high on the May 29-dated chart. With J Balvin and Bad Bunny on board, the song arrives in the top 10 of the airplay-, streaming- and digital-blended Hot Latin Songs in its 13th week mainly on the strength of streaming data.

“AM” earned 12.6 million U.S. streams after its first full tracking week ending July 1, according to MRC Data. That grants the track a No. 22 start on the overall Streaming Songs chart, García’s second entry and its highest following “Te Boté’s” No. 33 debut in May 2018. Ongoing with its streaming progress, “AM” also takes the Greatest Gainer/Streaming honors, climbing 18-2 on Latin Streaming Songs.

Back on Hot Latin Songs, J Balvin captures his 33rd top 10, while Bad Bunny ups his career count to 41, solidifying his record for the most top 10s since the chart began in 1986. Let’s take a look at the list of top 10 winners on Hot Latin Songs:

41, Bad Bunny

39, Enrique Iglesias

39, Luis Miguel

36, Daddy Yankee

33, J Balvin

30, Shakira

29, Chayanne

“AM” concurrently takes the Greatest Gainer/Digital trophy with 2,000 downloads sold, pushing to the top (7-1) on Latin Digital Songs in its second week.

Beyond its Hot Latin Songs push, “AM” gifts Garcia his highest debut on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart as it bows at No. 41.

Garcia also breaks the top 10 barriers on Billboard’s global charts: “AM” reaches a No. 7 high on the Global Excl. U.S. tally and peaks at No. 10 on the Global 200 list.
