Plus, Residente makes first his Hot Latin Songs appearance thanks to ‘Bellacoso’ with Bad Bunny.

J Balvin and Bad Bunny’s “Que Pretendes” lifts 2-1 on the Latin Airplay chart dated Aug. 10. The first single off their collaborative eight-track album, Oasis (released June 28), advances with 13.8 million audience impressions (up 35%) earned in the week ending Aug. 4, according to Nielsen Music.

Balvin nabs his 15th No. 1 on the chart and breaks away from a four-way tie with Carlos Vives, Shakira, and Wisin who have each claimed 14 No. 1s thus far. Balvin now places as the act with the third-most leaders in the chart’s history which began in 1994. Bad Bunny, meanwhile, claims his sixth.

Beyond the “Que Pretendes" coronation, each act has nabbed two other No. 1s in 2019. J Balvin claimed his first No. 1 of the year when “Reggaeton” hit the top in its 13th week (chart dated April 6). His collaboration on Ozuna’s remix, “Baila Baila Baila,” alongside Daddy Yankee, Farruko and Anuel AA, secured a spot atop the list just a little over a month after.

Bad Bunny’s “Soltera,” with Lunay and Daddy Yankee arrived at No. 1 on the July 13-dated tally (a two-week reign), while “Callaita,” with compatriot producer Tainy, landed at the summit last week (Aug. 3-dated list).

Residente’s First: Residente makes his first appearance on Hot Latin Songs, as his teaming with Bad Bunny on “Bellacoso” bows at No. 24.

Their first collaboration, which also includes background vocals by iLe, was released on July 26 as part of Residente’s celebrations after Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rosselló announced his resignation on July 24 following days of protests (in which Residente and Bad Bunny took part).

Though this is Residente's first solo hit on the Hot Latin Songs chart, he is also one-half of Calle 13, which placed six entries on the list.  

In the week ending Aug. 1, "Bellacoso" sold 1,000 downloads (enabling the song's debut at No. 7 on Latin Digital Song Sales -- Residente's first chart appearance in over a year) and registered 3.4 million streams.
