Plus, Shakira returns to No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs & Yandel earns new Latin Airplay chart-topper.

Following an explosive performance at the Latin Grammy Awards (broadcast Nov. 17 on Univision), Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony debut atop the Latin Digital Song Sales chart (dated Dec. 10) with the lead single from Lopez’s forthcoming Spanish-language album (due Spring 2017) “Olvidame y Pega La Vuelta” (12,000 downloads sold in the week ending Nov. 24, according to Nielsen Music).

It also earns the Hot Shot Debut on Hot Latin Songs, arriving at No. 17 -- marking the first time in 17 years that the two have charted together, since “No Me Ames” spent seven weeks at No. 1 in 1999. The new song is a cover of Argentine duo Pimpinela’s original, which was released in 1982.

Lopez’s upcoming set marks her second Spanish-language full-length project. Her first, Como Ama Una Mujer, spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart in 2007 and spurred the chart-topping “Que Hiciste,” which crowned Hot Latin Songs for one week that year.

Shakira Shimmies to No. 1: Elsewhere, Shakira returns to No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs, flying 6-1 with “Chantaje,” featuring Maluma, triggered by the release of its music video (it debuted atop the Nov. 19-dated chart). The clip, shot in Barcelona, aids in a 140 percent increase in the song’s overall streams (to 4.1 million weekly clicks), with 68 percent coming from YouTube views. The single previews Shakira’s next Spanish album, which she is currently in the process of recording.

Yandel Rises: Finally, Yandel scores his eighth No. 1 on Latin Airplay as “Nunca Me Olvides” steps 2-1 in its 20th charting frame (up 11 percent to 15.5 million audience impressions). Since earning his first solo chart-topper (on the Dec. 29, 2012 list), no other act has earned as many No. 1s.

Over on Hot Latin Songs, “Nunca” slips one spot (10-11), despite its best streaming week yet. The song logged 920,000 weekly U.S. streams (up 23 percent), with YouTube accounting for 72 percent of overall clicks. A music video for the song has surpassed 96 million global views since its July 12 release.
