J Balvin and Khalid, “Otra Noche Sin Ti”

As J Balvin and Khalid’s “Otra Noche Sin Ti” lands at No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (dated July 10), the American singer-songwriter earns his first No. 1 on any Latin chart.

“Otra Noche” jumps 5-1 with 9.7 million in audience impressions, a 43% gain, earned in the week ending July 4, according to MRC Data. For Khalid, it’s his first chart appearance since 2018 when Marshmello’s “Silence,” on which he is featured, debuted and peaked at No. 50. J Balvin, meanwhile, picks up his 30th No. 1 dating back to his first, “6 AM,” featuring Farruko in 2014.

With the song’s ascent, Balvin gets closer to beating Enrique Iglesias’ all-time record of 31 leaders since the chart’s inception in 1994.

Let’s take a look at the Latin Airplay winners:

31, Enrique Iglesias
30, J Balvin
24, Daddy Yankee
24, Ozuna
20, Maluma
19, Wisin

Beyond its Latin Airplay coronation, “Otra Noche” pushes up Hot Latin Songs with a 20-17 jump and takes the Greatest Gainer/ Airplay honors. It concurrently grants Khalid his first Latin Rhythm Airplay No. 1 as the song lifts 4-1.
