The jump marks the first Hot Latin Songs top 10 for featured rapper and co-writer of the song Yotuel, who previously charted alongside Beatriz Luengo on “Como Tu No Hay Dos” in 2011 (No. 34 peak). Luengo is also credited as a co-writer on “La Mordidita.”
Calbire 50 Collects Fifth No. 1: Mexican group Calibre 50 collects its fifth No. 1 on Regional Mexican Songs as “Aunque Ahora Estes Con El” steps 2-1. The track takes Greatest Gainer honors, for a second consecutive week, rising 22 percent (to 8.6 million audience impressions) in the week ending Aug. 9, according to Nielsen Music.
It’s the second No. 1 this year for the band, which ruled for 10 straight weeks with “Contigo” between the charts dated March 21 and May 23. The song's No. 1 ascent also aids its new peak on the hybrid airplay/sales/streaming Hot Latin Songs chart, where it hops 15-11 in its eighth charting frame.
Gente de Zona Rises To No. 2: Gente de Zona reaches a new peak on Hot Latin Songs, ascending 3-2 with “La Gozadera,” featuring Marc Anthony. Radio airplay is the main cause for the climb, growing two percent, reaching 10.5 million audience impressions -- its best week on-air yet (also stepping 3-2 on Latin Airplay). A 13 percent swell in streaming (to 629,000 weekly clicks) also kindles the song’s rise.
The Cuban duo first achieved massive success as a featured act on Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailando,” also featuring Descemer Bueno. It broke the record for the longest-running No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs, spending a total 41 weeks at the top.
