SUPER JUNIOR x Reik, "One More Time (Otra Vez)"

The trilingual track marks the latest successful cross between the K-pop & Latin-pop scenes.

Super Junior and Reik prove the power of cross-genre collaborations by scoring a chart hit together with their new single.

"One More Time," which is sung a mostly in Korean and Spanish along with a sprinkling of English, enters a slew of charts this week. Marking their second appearance on Billboard's Latin charts following their first foray into the scene via "Lo Siento" in April, Super Junior "One More Time" debuts at No. 18 on the Latin Digital Song Sales chart and at No. 5 on the Latin Pop Digital Song Sales chart, moving 1,000 downloads in the week ending Oct. 11, according to Nielsen Music. 

"One More Time" also starts at No. 4 on World Digital Song Sales chart marking the K-pop veterans' seventh top 5 entry on the tally.

Recorded in both a collaborative version with the Mexican pop-rock band and in its own solo version, "One More Time" is the title track off the new mini-album from Super Junior that also includes a cover of "Ahora Te Puedes Marchar," the No. 1 Hot Latin Songs chart smash from Luis Miguel (that's actually a reinterpretation of Dusty Springfield's Hot 100 single "I Only Want to Be With You" from 1964) which has become a party staple in Mexico since its 1987 release.

All in all, Super Junior teaming with a mainstream Latin hitmaker and recording songs actually in Spanish further proves their dedication to their Latinx fanbase and how they're leading the charge on the charts as more K-pop acts embrace recording in Spanish, and touring in Latin and South America.

Watch Super Junior bring "One More Time" to life, sadly, sans Reik, but worry not: There's hope a live collaboration will happen sooner than later as the band brought Leslie Grace and Play-N-Skillz on their most recent tour and performed together at KCON New York.
