Luis Fonsi & Ozuna Hit No. 1 On the Latin Airplay Chart With 'Imposible'
Their first collaboration tops the survey after a 17-week journey.
The song is the fourth single off Luis Fonsi’s tenth studio album Vida, which launched at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated Feb. 16), and follows former leader, “Calypso” with Stefflon Don or Karol G.
“Imposible” rises to 13.46 million in audience impressions (up 16 percent) in the week ending Feb. 17, according to Nielsen Music.
Luis Fonsi snags his 10th chart topper and links four consecutive No. 1s, all of which are found on Vida: “Despacito” with Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber (19 weeks, 2017), “Echame La Culpa,” featuring Demi Lovato (one week, Jan. 2018), “Calypso” with Stefflon Don or Karol G (one week, Sept. 2018), and now “Imposible” with Ozuna, a No. 1 on the current tracking week
Ozuna, meanwhile, logs his ninth No. 1, following his featured role on DJ Snake’s “Taki Taki,” also featuring Selena Gomez and Cardi B.
“Imposible” also reaches a new high on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, moving with an equal 4-1 climb.
Also, in the top 10 of the Latin Airplay chart, Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma,” featuring Snow, rises 14-8 thanks to a 16 percent boost in audience (to 9.4 million). Yankee now ties with Ricky Martin for the third-most top 10s on the list, with 27. They only trail Shakira with 30, and Enrique Iglesias who continues to lead with 39.
While “Con Calma” earns Yankee his second consecutive top 10 of the year (“Adictiva” with Aniuel AA rose to No. 7 on the Feb. 16-dated list), Snow scores his first top 10 with his first chart entry.
J Balvin Claims New Top 10 With "Reggaeton": Elsewhere on the Latin charts, J Balvin clocks his 17th top 10 on the Latin Pop Songs airplay chart as his new single, “Reggaeton” leaps 11-8 in its ninth week thanks to a 7 percent increase in plays.
It’s Balvin’s first top 10 entry as a lead act in over seven months. “Ambiente,” fourth single off Vibras, his fifth studio album, reached a No. 3 peak on the July 7, 2018-dated tally. In between, he’s notched two other top 10s, one a former leader: “Mi Cama” with Karol G, featuring Nicky Jam, which landed at No. 2 in Aug. 2018 and “No Es Justo” with Zion & Lennox which remained at the summit for two weeks (Nov. 24- Dec. 1, 2018).
