Bad Bunny captures his 15th No. 1 on Billboard's Latin Airplay chart as "Yonaguni" takes over atop the Sept. 4-dated survey.

The win follows the song's dominance on the multi-metric Hot Latin Songs chart (which merges airplay, sales and streaming data) for five weeks in June and July. It also became Bad Bunny's fourth top 10, reaching No. 10, on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The Spanish-language "Yonaguni," with added Japanese lyrics (as the song is named after the western-most island of Japan), lifts 4-1 on Latin Airplay with by a 19% increase to 11.6 million audience impressions in the week ending Aug. 29, according to MRC Data.

"Yonaguni" marks Bad Bunny's fourth Latin Airplay leader without another artist among his compendium of 15 No. 1s. It follows three in 2020: "Vete" (one week at No. 1, March 14), "La Dificil" (one, August) and "Yo Perreo Sola" (two, June).

Bad Bunny first led Latin Airplay for a week in February 2018 as featured on Becky G's "Mayores," also his first chart entry. He logged his longest stay at the summit to-date with "Mia," featuring Drake, for six weeks starting in December 2018.

Over on Hot Latin Songs, "Yonaguni" remains at No. 4, led by 7.6 million U.S. streams in the week ending Aug. 26.
