Formed in the 1990s, Intocable first landed on the Billboard charts in 1995 when Otro Mundo debuted on Regional Mexican Albums, eventually peaking at No. 4. The band's next set, Llevame Contigo, debuted at No. 1 in 1996. With the latest debut, the group ties with Los Temerarios for the third-most No. 1s on the chart. Only two other acts have had more chart-topping visits: Vicente Fernandez (16) and Los Tigres del Norte (24). 

Highway single “Quiereme (Amame)” concurrently debuts at No. 46 on Latin Airplay, with 2.9 million audience impressions in the week ending June 26. Over on the Regional Mexican Songs chart, the track climbs 24-19 in its third week. The rise gives Intocable its 52nd top 20, breaking them out of a tie with Los Tigres del Norte for most top 20s (51) – to now solely hold the record.

In total, Intocable has earned 16 No. 1s on the Regional Mexican Songs chart, and the band is tied with Conjunto Primavera for the most No. 1s on the list. 

Banda Sinaloense Reaches No. 1: Elsewhere on Regional Mexican Songs, Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga’s “Me Vas A Extrañar” steps 2-1, becoming the group's fifth No. 1 on the chart. The song also earns the chart's Greatest Gainer award for the week, rising 14 percent in audience impressions at the format (up 14 percent). In addition, the track reaches a new peak on Hot Latin Songs, rising 7-6.

“Extrañar” is the second single from the group’s latest set, Que Bendicion, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums earlier this year. The album's lead single, “Solo Con Verte” spent nine weeks at No. 1 on Regional Mexican Songs – the group’s longest-running No. 1.
