Spanish singer-songwriter Abraham Mateo earns his first Latin Airplay No. 1 as “Se Acabó El Amor” featuring Yandel and Jennifer Lopez arrives at the summit. The song leaps 7-1 on the list dated June 16 with a 61 percent gain in airplay audience in the week ending June 10, according to Nielsen Music.

The 19-year-old Mateo is the youngest solo male artist to lead the Latin Airplay chart, which launched in 1994. The youngest solo artist to top the list remains Leslie Grace, who hit No. 1 in 2012 with “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” when she was 17 years old.

“Se Acabó El Amor” is the second chart entry for Mateo, who made his chart debut last November with “Loco Enamorado,” featuring Farruko and Christian Nodal. It peaked at No. 12 on the Jan. 13, 2018-dated list.

“Se Acabó El Amor” is also the 11th No. 1 for Yandel, while it’s the seventh for Lopez. It’s also Lopez’s second No. 1 of 2018 — the first time she’s notched two No. 1s in a calendar year.  She previously ruled the tally for one week with “Amor, Amor, Amor” featuring Wisin (Feb. 3). 

Concurrently, “Se Acabó El Amor” jumps to the top of the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart and ranks in the top 10 of the Latin Pop Airplay chart. It also ascends eight ranks on the Hot Latin Songs tally, to No. 19, besting Mateo’s lone previous entry on the chart with “Loco,” which peaked at No. 22 (Jan. 13).


CARLOS VIVES LOGS NEW TROPICAL AIRPLAY TOP FIVE:  Meanwhile, over on the Tropical Songs airplay chart, Carlos Vives’ new single “Hoy Tengo Tiempo (Pinta Sensual)” visits the top five, ascending 7-4 in its third frame with a 58 percent airplay increase (to 3.7 million audience impressions). The lift grants the Colombian his 11th top five.

Vives last landed on the chart’s top five in 2016, when his collaboration with Shakira, “La Bicicleta” debuted in the penthouse, spending one week atop the list.

“Hoy Tengo” is Vives’ 16th consecutive top 10 song, and it follows “El Arrepentido” with Melendi, which peaked at No. 8 on May 26.
