The slow-tempo tune climbs from No. 2 to lead with 7.1 million in audience impressions, a 27% gain, earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 1, according to Luminate. It dethrones Banda Los Sebastianes’ “Modo Incógnito” from its one-week reign and takes home the Greatest Gainer trophy of the week, also pushing on the all-Latin genre Latin Airplay survey with an 8-6 jump.
“Ahí” was composed by Mexican songwriter Gussy Lau and is the second single from the album Mexicana Enamorada, which has not entered the charts. The set’s lead single, however, “Dime Cómo Quieres,” with Christian Nodal, took over atop Regional Mexican Airplay for five consecutive weeks starting on the Jan. 30, 2021-dated ranking.
Notably, Aguilar is just the seventh female act who has scored at least one No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay among the 100 total artists who have secured a champ since the chart launched in 1994. Before Aguilar’s two No. 1s, the last time a woman led the survey was on the Jan. 26-Feb. 9, 2019, charts, when Natalia Lafourcade was the featured artist on Los Angeles Azules’ “Nunca Es Suficiente.” Before Lafourcade, the last woman to achieve the feat was Graciela Beltran, with “Es Cosa De El,” for one week on May 5, 2007 (Lafourcade doesn’t typically record regional Mexican music, thus her No. 1 is atypical).
No. 1s, Artist
2, Angela Aguilar
1, Alicia Villarreal

Over on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs, “Ahí” dips 31-33 despite an 8% gain in sales.
