The Zion & Lennox collaboration takes the longest trip to the top of Latin Airplay in more than a year.

J Balvin earns his 12th No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart, as “No Es Justo” with Zion & Lennox leads jumps 3-1 in its 16th week on the list (Nov. 24-dated chart).

"It's really special to have ‘No Es Justo' reach No. 1 this week,” Balvin tells Billboard. “It's a blessing to see music from VIBRAS still topping the charts and showing that reggaeton continues to be the sound leading the way in connecting with Latin radio and fans... and it's an honor to share my 12th No. 1 with creative brothers like Zion & Lennox."

“No Es Justo” ascends thanks to a 19 percent boost in audience impressions (to 13.1 million) in the week ending Nov. 18, according to Nielsen Music. It's the sixth No. 1 for Zion & Lennox.

The song is the second charting collaboration from J Balvin with Zion & Lennox. They previously paired up for Zion & Lennox’s former leader “Otra Vez,” featuring J Balvin, which reigned for one week in November 2016.

“No Es Justo” concurrently leads the Latin Pop Songs airplay and the Latin Rhythm airplay charts. On the former, it takes an 18-week trip to the top, becoming the longest climb to No. 1 since Dec. 3, 2016, when Farruko's "Chillax," featuring Ky-Mani Marley reached the top in its 21st week.

Farther down the Latin Airplay list, Christian Nodal logs his fifth top 10 as “No Te Contaron Mal” lifts 11-8. The song increases to 9.6 million in audience impressions, a 5 percent gain.

The song is Nodal’s fifth consecutive top 10, all of which have made it to the top tier between 2017 and 2018.

“No Te Contaron” bests the peak of his last charting single, "Te Fallé," which peaked at No. 10 on Aug. 18.
