Carlos Vives’ “Robarte Un Beso,” with Sebastian Yatra, hits No.1 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated Jan. 13) as the song lifts 3-1 on its 19th week on the ranking. The single jumps 15 percent to 16.35 million audience impressions at the format in the week ending Jan. 7 according to Nielsen Music. 

“Robarte Un Beso” earns the chart’s Greatest Gainer honor and succeeds Shakira’s “Perro Fiel,” which ruled the chart for four straight weeks. It falls to No. 2 with 15.87 million in audience — down 6 percent.

The song earns Vives his 13th No. 1 hit on the tally, tied for the third-most in the chart's 23-year history. Enrique Iglesias holds the most No. 1s with 29, followed by Ricky Martin with 16. Romeo Santos, Shakira and Vives all have 13. The track earns Yatra his first No. 1 on the chart. 

“Robarte Un Beso” is the third single of the album VIVES (released Nov. 10 via Sony Music Latin) which ascends 25-24 on the Top Latin Albums chart in its 8th week, after previously debuting and peaking at No. 5 (Dec. 2, 2017-dated chart). It holds at No. 4 the Tropical Albums chart, following its earlier bow and peak at No. 2. 

Over on the Hot Latin Songs chart -- which blends airplay, sales and streams -- "Robarte Un Beso" continues its ascent, rising from No. 16 to a new No. 14 high and surpassing its previous No. 15 peak. It also takes the week’s Greatest Gainer honors in airplay.

12th No. 1 for La Arrolladora Banda el Limón de Rene Camacho: La Arrolladora Banda el Limón de Rene Camacho are back at No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart — for a 12th time — with “Entre Beso y Beso.” The song rises 4-1 in its 11th week on the list. The single jumps 10 percent to 10.43 million in audience at the format and nabs the Greatest Gainer trophy. (On the overall Latin Airplay chart, the track enters the top 10 (12-7), notching the group its 17th top 10.)

With 12 No. 1s on the Regional Mexican Songs chart, the banda trails Conjunto Primavera and Intocable (with a record 16 leaders in the chart's 23-year history), Los Tigres del Norte (with 15) and Banda El Recodo de Cruz de Lizarraga (with 14). 

La Arrolladora Banda el Limón de Rene Camacho last topped the Regional Mexican Songs chart with “Me Va a Pasar," in 2016. The song spent seven nonconsecutive weeks atop the chart. 

Farruko Notches Third Top Five Album: Finally, Farruko scores his third top five album on the Top Latin Albums chart as TrapXficante ascends 7-5 on its 16th frame. The album earned 3,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 4; mostly powered by streams, up 15 percent. The set is powered by streams of its hit single "Krippy Kush," which concurrently climbs 6-4 on Latin Streaming Songs (up 9 percent).

The album follows the sets Visionary (2015) which spent one week at No. 1, and Farruko Presents Los Menores (2014), which held two weeks atop the chart.
