Plus, Reik notches fourth straight top 10 debut with "Ahora."

Bad Bunny logs his 14th top 10 on Hot Latin Songs as “Callaita,” with Tainy, arrives at No. 8 on the June 15-dated chart. It’s Tainy’s first chart entry.

“Callaita” earns Bad Bunny his highest debut in more than five months, since “Solo de Mi” landed at No. 6 (Dec. 29, 2018). In between, he claimed 14 debuts -- most of them from his album X 100PRE.

“Callaita” starts mainly on the strength of streaming activity and digital sales. It logged 7 million streams and sold 4,000 downloads in the week ending June 6, according to Nielsen Music.

Meanwhile, Tainy earns his first top 10 on Hot Latin Songs in his first visit. He boasts a few entries on other Billboard charts, including an appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 through his collaboration on “I Can’t Get Enough,” with Benny Blanco, Selena Gomez and J Balvin, and a No. 1 on Top Latin Albums via his collaborative set with Luny Tunes’ Mas Flow: Los Benjamins (Oct. 14, 2006).

Reik Is Runner Up: Meanwhile, Reik debuts at No. 2 on the Latin Pop Albums chart with Ahora. It’s the trio’s fourth straight top 10 debut dating back to 2008, when Un Días Más arrived at No. 3 (Oct. 18).

Ahora lifts off with 3,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending June 6, according to Nielsen Music, most of which are attributed to streaming activity. 

Notably, out of the 14 albums that have debuted on the Latin Pop Albums chart in 2019, Ahora is the only set to open at No. 2. Just two albums have opened in the No. 1 slot this year: Luis Fonsi’s Vida, which has solidly remained atop the list for 17 nonconsecutive weeks (Feb. 16- April 20; May 4 until now), and Sebastian Yatra’s Fantasía, a one-week leader (April 27).

 Concurrently, Ahora debuts at No. 17 on the overall Top Latin Albums tally.
