Arriving at No. 8, the single is also his first chart entry.

Frank Ocean nets his first top 10 hit on the Hot Latin Songs chart, as "Cayendo" arrives at No. 8 on the list dated April 18. The bilingual (English/ Spanish) acoustic ballad was previewed back in October through Ocean's Beats 1 radio show and properly released April 3 via his Blonded YouTube channel. The track was released concurrently with another tune: the English-language cut "Dear April."

Co-produced alongside producer and bass player Daniel Aged, “Cayendo” (which translates to “Falling Down”) is also Ocean’s first entry on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data.

“Cayendo” opens in the top 10 mainly on the strength of streaming activity. It registered 4.4 million U.S. clicks in the week ending April 9, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, resulting in a No. 7 debut on the Latin Streaming Songs chart; his first entry there.

The song also bows at No. 3 on the Latin Digital Song Sales chart with 1,000 downloads.

“Cayendo” is Ocean’s second entry on a Billboard Latin chart. He claimed his first appearance on the Latin Airplay chart through his featured role on Calvin Harris’ “Slide,” which also features Migos, in 2017.
