Gerardo Ortiz climbs 6-1 on Billboard's Regional Mexican Songs chart with "Quien Se Anima," landing his fourth No. 1 on the list. The song grows by 13 percent in its fifth week on the chart, to 7.5 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. The track also becomes his fifth to reach the top 10 on Hot Latin Songs, where it rises 11-9.

"Anima" is the second single from "Archivos de Mi Vida," Ortiz's fourth studio album, which debuted at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums in December.
Fellow regional Mexican act (and DEL/Sony Music Latin labelmate) Luis Coronel enters Hot Latin Songs at No. 28 with "Tenerte." The track from the 18-year-old singer also debuts at No. 1 on Regional Mexican Digital Songs with 2,000 downloads sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Tenerte" is the first official single from his upcoming sophomore album.
Following the death of regional Mexican artist Tito Torbellino (born Tomas Tovar Rascon) on May 29 in Sonora, Mexico, three of his titles arrive on Hot Latin Songs. He claims the Hot Shot Debut at No. 4 with "No Eres Tu, Ahora Soy Yo," from his latest album, "20 Canciones Banda Y Norteño." At No. 11, "Te La Pasas," featuring Espinoza Paz, re-enters at a new peak, having first reached No. 16 in February. "Pedron Antrax," from his 2012 set "Y Sigo Vivo," enters at No. 43.

Romeo Santos claims the Hot Shot Debut trophy on Latin Airplay as, "Eres Mia," from his latest set "Formula, Vol. 2," enters at No. 27. The track is the fourth from the album to land on the radio-based chart, with two having reached the top so far: "Propuesta Indecente" (for two weeks) and "Odio," featuring Drake (seven). "Eres" climbs by 96 percent to 4.7 million audience impressions. Santos is currently on tour in the U.S., with two high-profile dates set for July at New York’s Yankee Stadium.
