Banda El Recodo returns to the throne on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart as “Qué Tienen Tus Palabras?” lifts 2-1 on the Oct. 9-dated ranking. It's the group's first No. 1 in over six years, and 15th leader overall. It leads with 7.6 million in audience impressions, up 10%, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 3, according to MRC Data.

Banda last landed at the summit with the two-week ruler “Mi Vicio Más Grande” in July 2015. In between, the group nabbed seven top 10s, including three tracks that preceded its latest effort Esta  Vida Es Muy Bonita: “Hubiera Sido Como Tú” (No. 10 high, Feb. 2020), “De Ti Me Enamoré” (No. 5 peak, August 2020) and “Voy Pa'Arriba y Con Viada” (peaked at No. 2 on the April 10-dated list).

The ranchera “Tus Palabras” was written by Mario Martínez y Tláloc Noriega and becomes Banda’s 15th win, posting its first No. 1 in 1999 (“Adorable Mentirosa,” six weeks atop).The track concurrently pushes up the overall Latin Airplay chart (8-6) and the all-metric Hot Latin Songs tally (39-38).

Elsewhere on Regional Mexican Airplay, Edwin Luna y La Trakalosa capture a sixth top 10 as “Apoco” climbs 13-7 with a 28% increase in audience, to 4.2 million.
