Norteño band Calibre 50 nabs its 13th No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart dated April 13 as “Por Qué Cambiaste De Opinión” bumps 2-1.

The song ascends thanks to an 11% gain in audience impressions (to 9 million), earned in the week ending March 7, according to Nielsen Music.  

“Por Qué” is the quartet’s 13th leader on the tally. Their first No. 1 reign began when “Ni Que Estuvieras Tan Buena,” the band’s 11th chart entry, landed in the penthouse in Nov. 2013, ruling for three consecutive weeks.

With the new song's move, Calibre 50 now stands alone with the fifth most No. 1s on the chart. They trail Conjunto Primavera and Intocable, both with 16, Los Tigres del Norte (15) and Banda El Recodo de Cruz de Lizárraga (14). Calibre was previously tied for sixth place with La Arrolladora Banda El Limón de Rene Camacho.

“Por Qué” is the third single of their tenth studio album Mitad y Mitad which debuted at No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart and No. 5 on the Top Latin Albums chart (Aug. 2018).

Yandel Returns: On the Latin Rhythm Albums chart, Yandel returns with his first top 10 in over a year and a half as The One, his fifth studio album released via Y/Sony Music Latin, debuts at No. 9.

The set opens with 2,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 4, with the bulk of the album’s first week driven by streaming activity.

Yandel has placed a total of six top 10s on the Latin Rhythm Albums, four of which hit No. 1 dating back to 2013 when De Lider A Leyenda launched atop the list and reigned for 13 nonconsecutive weeks.

Concurrently, The One launches at No. 13 on the Top Latin Albums chart.

Camila & Sin Bandera Unite: Mexican acts Camila and Sin Bandera unite on the Latin Pop Albums chart top 10 as 4LatiDos Tour: En Vivo , their first collaborative effort, opens at No. 9.

The set launches with 1,000 equivalent album units, most of which can be attributed to streaming activity. While Camila logs its fifth straight top 10, Sin Bandera notches its seventh.
