Plus: J Balvin and Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Liarraga earn new No. 1s.

Salsa singer Victor Manuelle reclaims the record for most No. 1s on the Tropical Songs chart, notching his 26th leader on the Sept. 19-dated chart with “No Queria Enganarte.” The song steps 2-1 in its seventh week, rising 26 percent in plays at the format (according to Nielsen Music, in the week ending Sept. 6). Manuelle breaks out of a tie with Marc Anthony for the most No. 1s, as “Enganarte” becomes his third chart-topper this year. The track also climbs seven percent in plays on Latin Pop Airplay (continuing at No. 25 for a second week), aided by a pop version featuring Puerto Rican singer Raquel Sofia.

Banda Sinaloense Bows at No. 1: Elsewhere on the Latin lists, regional Mexican group Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga scores its first No. 1 on Top Latin Albums. Their new En Vivo: Guadalajara-Monterrey arrives with 2,000 copies sold. The live set is the band’s ninth charting album, and follows No Me Pidas Perdon, which reached No. 2 (a 3,000 start, chart dated July 12, 2014). Banda Sinaloense spends a third week in the top 10 on Hot Latin Songs with “Piensalo” (No. 6), growing two percent in streams (to 620,000). Meanwhile, “Me Gusta Tu Vieja” enters Hot Latin Songs at No. 50, becoming the act’s fifth track to chart in 2015.

‘Ginza’ Grasps No. 1: J Balvin earns his third Latin Airplay No. 1 as “Ginza” rises 2-1 (up 18 percent, to 13.7 million audience impressions). The reggaeton tune likewise steps 6-5 on Latin Streaming Songs, reaching a new peak, logging 1.3 million domestic streams during the tracking week ending Sept. 3. A music video uploaded to Vevo on July 21 has racked up more than 73 million global views since its release. Upon its debut, Vevo announced that “Ginza” collected more first-day views than any other Spanish-language music video when it logged 2.5 million streams in its first 24 hours.
