Ozuna Breaks Own Record With 20 Titles on Hot Latin Songs Chart
Plus: His new album “Aura” yields 14 debuts on the tally.
Ozuna breaks his own record for the most concurrently charting titles on the Hot Latin Songs chart, as he has a whopping 20 tracks on the tally dated Sept. 8. He previously set the record with 13 simultaneous songs on the list dated Oct. 7, 2017.
The new record was prompted in large part by his sophomore studio album, Aura, which was released on Aug. 24 and makes a splashy debut on Top Latin Albums at No. 1, largely powered by streaming activity. Hot Latin Songs ranks the most popular Latin songs of the week by blending airplay, sales and streaming data.
14 songs off the new album debut on the Hot Latin Songs chart, joining six Ozuna tracks that were already on the list. Like Ozuna's album bow, the 14 song debuts are all mostly driven by streams.
“I’m excited and super grateful with the public for their unconditional support,” Ozuna tells Billboard. "Thanks to my God for always holding my hand and never letting me fall.”
In total, since first arriving on the chart dated April 9, 2016, Ozuna has now charted 52 entries on Hot Latin Songs. Notably, more than half of those—27—debuted in 2018.
Among his 2018 hits is one No. 1, "Te Boté," which climbs 2-1 for its 11th nonconsecutive week at No. 1. Ozuna shares credit on the tune with Casper Mágico, Darell, Nio Garcia, Nicky Jam and Bad Bunny.
Only two titles from Aura landed on the chart before the Sept. 8-dated list, and, both of them speed up the latest chart. “Unica” hits a new peak, climbing 8-3, with Greatest Gainer/Digital & Streaming honors, with 7.9 million in U.S. streams (up 100 percent) and roughly 1,000 downloads, in week ending Aug. 30, according to Nielsen Music. Meanwhile, “Vaina Loca” (with Manuel Turizo) soars 20-7, earning him his 12th top 10.
Over on Top Latin Albums, Ozuna's second studio album Aura arrives at No. 1 with 49,000 equivalent album units earned. Aura is Ozuna's third chart entry, second No. 1, and it was released via VP Entertainment/DimeloVi/Sony Music Latin. Aura dethrones his first leader, Odisea, which crowned the chart for 46 nonconsecutive weeks. The set has only left the penthouse for seven weeks, each time dropping to No. 2.
