Also, Los Plebes del Rancho de Ariel Camacho climb, while a song recorded by late frontman debuts.
The Hot Latin Songs chart (dated March 19) welcomes a new No. 1 as Nicky Jam steps 2-1 with “Hasta El Amanecer,” earning the urban act his second chart-topper (following his 30-week topping run alongside Enrique Iglesias with “El Perdon” in 2015). The climb bumps J Balvin’s “Ginza” from a 22-week reign, which became the longest running No. 1 for a solo act, unaccompanied by another. (All of the other longer-leading No. 1s were duets or by soloists featuring a guest star.)
“Amanecer” takes Digital Gainer honors on the chart, selling 3,000 downloads in the week ending March 3 (up four percent, according to Nielsen Music), while a seven percent hike in weekly streams (to 1.7 million domestic plays) also aids in the crowning rise. Increased radio play also causes “Amanecer” to step 2-1 on Latin Airplay, where he notches his third No. 1, rising nine percent to 13.3 million audience impressions (in the week ending March 6).
