Carlos Vives and Shakira’s new single, “La Bicicleta,” debuts at No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated June 18), scoring the second chart-topping entrance this year (Enrique Iglesias’ “Duele El Corazon” featuring Wisin was the first, on the May 7 chart). The collaboration arrives with 17 million audience impressions in the week ending June 5, according to Nielsen Music.
The entry marks Vives’ third No. 1 start, following his 2014 hit “El Mar de Sus Ojos,” and his 2012 song “Volvi A Nacer.” Shakira notches her second crowning bow, following her No. 1 debut as the featured act on Mana’s “Mi Verdad” (Feb. 28, 2015 chart).
