The song dethrones Romeo Santos’ “Imitadora,” which ruled for four weeks.

Maluma earns his sixth No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (dated Aug. 26), as “Felices Los 4” climbs 2-1 in its 16th week on the chart.

The single claims the Latin Airplay chart’s Greatest Gainer honors, leaping 19 percent to 22 million audience impressions in the week ending Aug. 10, according to Nielsen Music.
