Becky G & Karol G Lead Hot Latin Songs Chart With ‘Mamiii’

It's a first No. 1 for Becky G.

Becky G and Karol G unite atop Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart with “Mamiii,” their first collaboration, which debuts at No. 1 on the tally dated Feb. 26. Becky G, who earned her first chart entry in 2014 with “Can’t Get Enough,” featuring Pitbull, secures her first No. 1 on the all-metric tally. Meanwhile, it’s Karol G’s fourth No. 1.

The Ovy on the Drums-produced single was released Feb. 10 (the final day of the previous tracking week) and debuts mostly on the strength of streaming activity. It generated 17.3 million streams in the U.S., up 4,340%, in the week ending Feb. 17, according to MRC Data. It arrives at No. 5 on the overall Streaming Songs chart and No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs. It also leads Latin Digital Song Sales with 6,600 downloads sold, up 748%.

Karol G last scored a No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data, with “Tusa,” the four-week champ with Nicki Minaj, in 2019. Since then, she’s placed 13 titles, including two No. 3-peaking tracks: “Caramelo,” with Ozuna and Myke Towers (Aug. 2020) and “Bichota” (Dec. 2020).

“Mamiii” also takes Becky G and Karol G to new heights on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 tally with a No. 15 debut – both artists’ highest-charting song. The song’s arrival reinstates Becky G back on the chart. She last appeared through a featuring role on South Korean J-Hope’s “Chicken Noodle Soup” in 2019.

While streams and downloads drive most of “Mamiii’s” activity, the song logged 4 million in airplay audience impressions in the week ending Feb. 20. That yields a No. 19 start on Latin Airplay.
