As J Balvin’s “Rojo” bounds 14-9 on the Latin Airplay chart dated May 30, he clocks his 28th top 10, dating to his first, “6 AM,” featuring Farruko, in 2014.

“Rojo” pushes up the Latin Airplay chart despite a 10% decrease in audience impressions (down to 6.5 million) earned in the week ending May 24, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Over the history of the chart, which began in 1994, J Balvin breaks away from a tie with Ricky Martin and stands alone for the fourth-most top 10s.

Here's a look at the acts with the most top 10s all-time on the tally.

“Rojo” is the third Latin Airplay top 10 off J Balvin’s latest album Colores which peaked at No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums chart dated April 4. The previous two tracks, “Blanco” and “Morado,” both former leaders, reigned for one week on the March 21- and the April 25-dated surveys.

“Rojo” is Balvin fifth straight top 10, all of which belong to 2020: “Que Pena,” with Maluma, leads the pack of No. 1s (Feb. 29-dated list), “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life),” with The Black Eyed Peas, follows (Feb. 8), “Blanco” (March 21-dated tally), and “Morado” (April 25-dated list).
