Lele Pons Scores First Hot Latin Songs Top 20 Hit With 'Celoso'
Plus, Luis Fonsi hits the Top 10 on Latin Rhythm Songs with the Karol G-assisted 'Calypso.'
Lele Pons makes her first Hot Latin Songs top 20 appearance as “Celoso,” her second chart entry on any Billboard chart, debuts at No. 11 on the chart dated Sept. 1, mainly on the strength of streams and digital sales.
The social media star's song logs a little less than 6 million U.S. streams in the week ending Aug. 23, according to Nielsen Music. Likewise, it collects 2,000 in digital download sales.
“Celoso” becomes Pons’ highest debut and second of the year, after “Dicen,” her collaboration with Matt Hunter, debuted at No. 29.
Luis Fonsi Nets Fourth No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Songs: Elsewhere on the Latin Rhythm Songs airplay chart, Luis Fonsi’s “Calypso” climbs 13-9 after a full tracking week (Aug. 20-26) of the song’s new remix with Karol G, which was released Aug. 17. The song advances with an 18 percent surge in audience in the week ending Aug. 26.
For Fonsi, “Calypso” marks his fourth Latin Rhythm Songs top 10. Each of his previous hits came in between 2008-2017, two as a lead act and one as co-lead act. “Yo No Me Doy Por Vencindo” reached No. 8 in 2008, “Aquí Estoy Yo” peaked at No. 4 in 2009, and the smash “Despacito” alongside Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber, which led for 20 nonconsecutive weeks (March-July 2017).
Karol, meanwhile picks up her second top 10, which includes one No. 1: “Mi Cama” with J Balvin featuring Nicky Jam.
