Plus, DJ Snake & Selena Gomez score first top 10 on Latin Airplay.
As Maluma’s “Mala Mia” climbs 7-1 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated Nov. 10; 14.9 million audience impressions in the week ending Nov. 4, up 54 percent, according to Nielsen Music), the track also climbs 9-1 on Latin Pop Airplay and 6-1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay. It’s the second time in 2018 that Maluma has led all three lists at the same time, after “Clandestino,” with Shakira, hit No. 1 on Sept. 29.
“I am thankful to God, my family and fans for being there for me and sharing this dream with me,” Maluma tells Billboard. “Also thankful for my producers and co-writers who are part of this dream.”
“Mala Mia” marks Maluma’s 11th No. 1 on Latin Airplay and fifth of 2018. Over on Hot Latin Songs -- which blends airplay, digital song sales and streaming activity -- the track rises 17-9, becoming his tenth top 10.
