The singer logs a record-tying 31st No. 1 with single from his upcoming set ‘Jose.’

J Balvin and Skrillex lock up the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart as “In Da Getto” rises 3-1 on the Sept. 11-dated survey. While Skrillex secures his first No. 1 on any Latin airplay chart, it's the 31st No. 1 for J Balvin, tying him with Enrique Iglesias for the most leaders in the chart's history.

“In Da Getto” takes over the 26-year-old tally thanks to a 15% gain in audience impressions, to 12.4 million, earned in the week ending Sept. 5, according to MRC Data.

J Balvin’s collection of Latin Airplay No. 1s dates back to 2014, when he sent “6 AM,” the fourth single from La Familia album to the summit --his breakthrough set which earned him a first top 10 on the overall Top Latin Albums chart (Oct. 2014). With the ‘90s dance interpolated “In Da Getto” taking over atop Latin Airplay, J Balvin takes his 31st win and ties Enrique Iglesias’ all-time No. 1 record, a mark Iglesias has held since 1996 as he placed five simultaneous tracks from his self-titled debut effort atop the all-genre Latin tally (“Si Tú Te Vas,” ‘Experiencia Religiosa,” “Por Amarte,” “No Llores Por Mi,” and “Trapecista”).

“In Da Getto” turns out to be profitable for the EDM DJ/ producer Skrillex having previously scored his first top 10 on the airplay-, digital sales, and streaming-blended Hot Latin Songs chart when the club banger debuted at No. 7 (dated July 17). It concurrently earned him a first No. 1 on any Latin chart with the track dominating the Latin Digital Song Sales on the same chart week.

The Skrillex and Tainy-produced tune also takes home the Greatest Gainer/Digital honors on Hot Latin Songs jumping three rankings (10-7) with close to 1,500 downloads sold, up 59%, logged in the week ending Sept. 2.

On the streaming front, the track posts a 28% gain to 3.42 million U.S. streams, and re-enters Latin Streaming Songs at No. 12.

“In Da Getto” follows J Balvin’s one-week Latin Airplay reign of “AM,” with Nio García and Bad Bunny (July 10). In total, he’s placed four No. 1s in 2021, all through collaborations except for “Tu Veneno” (April 3-dated list), his ninth ruler as a solo act among his 31 chart toppers.
